    Shindaiwa backpack sprayers for now. Truck mounted tank next year. Backpacks are sufficient for lawns with few weeds and are more environmentally responsible but a tank is a heck of alot quicker for most situations.

    I presently use a Udor pump with a 200 gal. tank for the lawns. However, while getting it ready for the fall, I noticed that it was clogging up, Found large amounts of metal shavings, (not a good sign). Will replace it this week with a Hypro D30, with a 5.5 Honda running things. Backpacks are great for spot treating weeds, but for applying pre-emerge products it really needs to be sprayed.

    Main sprayer is 200 gallon sprayer with tree gun and deep root injector. Also use 2 backpack sprayers, 1 Solo and 1 SP3, the SP3 at Northern is MUCH BETTER than the Solo!
