    I owned/used one of those. Clogged pretty easy. I doubt it would handle a tea...

    Then again I bet it would spray bills.. but you only get 1 gal per K... turn the nozzles in to get 2 gal per k.

    I have no idea, I think I burned up the diaphragms in my sprayer with the OVER sized screens still pulling vacuum..... good buy screen and the tea looks a lot better out of the gun.............. no scope in the field stuff just a sample one day and again the next, less shred....

    I must have mis-communicated it is a common trait of my ancestors passed and present.
    Here is an example: I got asked to come to a company in the mid west that has a little over 100 franchises in 24 states, the one I was visiting had 8000 customers, I did not mistype "eight thousand" from one office alone, this did not count the other 99 or so offices.
    These franchises have been and are run in a certain way, the home office had "played" with AACT and extracting for 2 years and had given up, they could not figure out how to coordinate it. It was something they were trying to bring into an existing framework and it caused too much heartburn

    I believe if they had started with AACT or extracting like several I know have and ran the business from that start it would be completely different

    Companies that brew teas are not our customers, companies that want to brew teas or expand into organic lawn/landscape care are. that is our business model to transition companies into less inputs of fertilizers and pesticides and to move to a more sustainable model. There are currently few to none, off the shelf product lines like ours to do that

    Our goal is: if we can reduce fertilizer and pesticide inputs by 50 to 75% nationally (hell, regionally), we have accomplished something. Then we can teach them how to get the rest out of their program
