back pack

I use a backpack for most of my apps.Go to rittenhouse.com I got a small boom that screws on to end of wand and it has two fan tip nozzles on it, I can spray a 4ft swat.Walking just below normal pace I use 1/2 gal per K.Yes u have to pump the whole time but its alot faster.I also use marking flags on each end of target area so i do not go over same place twice

Woa, marking flags at each pass? Seems like a lot of work. Wouldn't tracker dye be better?

Like the TurfEx one.
I was real close to getting one of them but not sure how good they will work. Have not seen any reviews for the ones I could afford.

It works great on medium to small yards. Moving the flags ain't bad

I'm sure you can find one to fit echo if you do a search. I'm wondering if adding two nozzles would increase the amount of hand pumping you would have to do in order to keep good pressure up. A battery operated one it might be a better idea for that type of set up.

From my experience you have to pump like crazy. It's not practical over time. I am going to but a Solo 433 motorized when the time is right for a 3 nozzle setup.

battery back packs dont put out alot of pressure.. dont think they would put out enough for 2 nozzles.. think if you wanted that get a gas powered one like GREENDOC has...

Yes the solo 433 is a great setup! I had one for a while, i just decided to buy a dedicated truck instead.
