    I'm looking for a new backpack sprayer for weed/grass killing....looking to stay around $75 or less.

    Any suggestions?

    Solo's are ok. For the price they work pretty good. I have a few. With sprayers and anything else you get what you pay for though. If you have the money spend it on something better

    What about chapin?
    I need to spray my whole yard with roundup to kill it. I'm thinking a backpack is better than the ready to use roundup sprayers...
    I have a gift card to HD that's why I looked at the one they had...

    I just bought a Chapin and what I see so far I like.

    These are my choices:

    Home Depot: RL Pro Flo-Master $85 (I can return when I have problems)
    Amazon: Chapin or Solo (which model??) hard to return if problems
    Lowe's: Roundup


    Thoughts? I'd like to buy something today.

    Again, this is mainly to kill my front yard but then will also be used around flower beds, etc...

    So I'm leaning towards the Solo. Do I want the Piston or Diaphragm? I'll be using only liquid...
