    I fertilize about 15-20 lawns. At present I have an Earthway spreader. I want to get a backpack for better weed control and saw the Echo SHR210 gas powered model. It's around 569. but has some nice features. Would appreciate some of your thoughts.

    it looks like a good setup, but what about wind drift.

    Just wanted to use it for the spot spraying so I would be keeping the spraying low enough to keep the wind pretty much out of the picture. Having not used a backpack before it looked like it would save a lot of pumping as time goes on. Someone just gave me a 140 gal tank that I will carry on my truck for refills.
