room for all the backpacks

I've got
1 for trees shrubs

1 for drive
1 for nutsedge
1 for round-up

It gets to be a tangled mess of backpacks sometimes.

I have 4 backpacks and 3 2gal spray tanks

Round up, Aclaim, Sedgehammer, and chaser amine in the backpacks

Chaser ester, F/C and a spare to mix up a special brew if needed in the 2g tanks.

I also carry 2-200 gal spray tanks for ornamental spraying plus my PG

Backpacks take up too much room. Last year I used 3 1-quart pump up sprayers, plus a 1-gal pressure sprayer. For violets, crabgrass, nutsedge, plus the ocasional fungicide or Roundup. I apply at about a half gallon per thousand.

I actually have different programs. Some I just do the ornamental apps, some just lawn apps, and the rest are a combo of both to varying degrees.

I carry alot so I don't have to make a special trip back to the property in most cases.

It's nice to be able to take care of just about any problem when you show up on a lawn.

No doubt about that. I am slowly building up to that point.

1 for glyco; 1 for Auquacap; 1 for ImidaPro; 1 for TalstarPro.

Got the good ones; Shindaiwa.

Got a $29.00 sprayer @ Harbor Freight... once - cheap China crap that leaks. Got a chem burn on my back from applying Broadstar to rock beds... though I was sweating and now sucked up a dose of what kills us the most & a chemical burn to boot.
