    We are wondering what brand of handheld "pump" sprayers do most of you use? I have tried every brand available here locally and none of the hold up to the weather and/or abuse from regular use.

    We have an open trailer but I am considering building a lockable cabinet to store my sprayers in to keep them out of the weather.

    Thanks in advance.

    Unless you go completely commercial type, the usual brands aren't worth the time.
    The most important factor you need to consider is this-----clean them out and often as you would your equipment. As for the cheap wands and nozzles, you can replace them with retro fitted brass material.
    I am only using backpack.....................RL Pro Flo diaphragm types.

    By "hand-held" do you mean the one or two gallon type? Lesco makes a good one (made by Gilson, I think) also make "Spray Doc".
    Or do you mean the one quart hand -held mini sprayers? (more convenient). They cost about 3 dollars at the "Dollar store".
    Or the top quality ones:
