    Any of you vets only using backpack sprayers and fert spreaders or is this possible so far all of my business has been small to medium residential with 2000 to 5500 sq feet of turf for the bigger one i have been using my motorized 4gal maruyama backpack sprayer. Also if this is possible to do business without a skid unit for awhile how many regular backpacks do you think i will need and how about a source or ideas for clean water supply thanks for any help you can give me yes i am lic just a newbie taking it slow and trying to do things right and by the book thanks.

    Check out the Shurflo SRS 600. It's now the only one my guys want to use. Rechageable battery-powered backpack spray. Nothing better as of yet. Patent pending.
