    Im using a solo back pack sprayer and wondering what the best tip to use would be. I have a tee jet 8003vs but think it is too much volume for spot spray applications

    A fan tip is designed to broadcast over wide areas. If I am targeting individual weeds, my preference is towards a solid cone DCER series tip. A DCER-2 and DC-33-CER produces a narrow solid cone and puts out less than 0.3 GPM at 40 PSI. Most manual sprayers have a hard time generating more than 30 PSI.

    i have always used a flat fan nozzle, i like the hard edge i can have to clean up areas along turf easier. however, i would like to have a solid cone sometimes and might get one.
