    Haha point taken. I was just saying compared to a regular backpack sprayer this thing is huge. It does look like it has great straps and padding. Gonna be for lawn weeds almost exclusively. Shrub sprayer is a 50 gallon designated tank with 7 gpm "fat boy" delavan pump, 300 feet of 3/8 hose, teejet gun with rollover valve, one side zero degree nozzle the other a mister with dcer cone nozzles for shrubs.

    Solo 433 is discontinued. The Maruyama MS0741 is still for sale. I have word that two disasters struck Japan last month, an earthquake and a typhoon. I have no idea if those disasters affected the factory that makes Maruyama equipment.

    Very effective, foliar drench (8 - 10 grams per gln depending on severity of infestation & induce) have had good long term efficacy.

    yes my z can do it.. I added a different spray gun to the hose to spray my shrubs.. I do very little spot stuff.. If I spray anything I spray everything.if I spray one of my shrubs I will mix up enough to spray them all same thing with the yard I wont spot spray anything I will just blanket the whole yard. I sent my elec pack backs to ric almost a year ago.. I was thinking about getting one to use here or there but the more I think about it the more I think I will pass. I think it will end up sitting in the shed and I will only get it out here or there. so I will just get the z out and mix up what ever I need in that..one of those things you think you need it but its hard for me to justify buying one and using it a few times a yr..

    I have a couple electrics too, they just don't put enough out for weed control unless you walk at a snails pace, plus no agitation. If you didn't have your z it would be a perfect tool. But you do so yes it probably would sit in the shed like you said.

    Electrics also have limits on what you may apply with them. If you want them to last any length of time it is clear, water based solutions like RoundUp or Three Way amine only. Solvent based sprays or the wettable granule chemicals introduce a wear factor. Fl. I caught what you said about a Delavan pump for your shrub rig. For me, that would be run off of a Hypro D252 and a Honda Engine.

    Ideally that would be the way to go. I run my skid off a D30 and Honda engine (rittenhouse) but I have a box truck and couldn't have gas engines inside so I researched 12 volts for the shrub pump and found roof cleaners were using delavan fat boys and they held up to corrosion pretty well. I got the 100 psi 7 gpm which allows me plenty of pressure and flow to have agitation back into tank by adjusting two ball valves. I also use it to pump water from the nurse tank to the lawn tank. The battery is a deep cycle inside box next to pump hard wired to the truck alternator for charging. So far so good, time will tell how long it will last but it performs great. The D30 is mounted outside in an underbody lockable box and plumbed though the floor.

    7 GPM and 100 PSI is enough to route some flow for agitation and still have 100 at the end of the hose. Good set up.
