    4 gallon backpack ought to be about $80 or so, I think you can get a 12 gallon pull-behind, with a 12v pump, at TSC for about $150.

    Spray rig for spot spray= Solo back pack 4 gallon $80.00 to $100.00 depending on how fancy you want to get (padded straps are more comfortable)

    Large sprayer (20 to 50 gallon) 12 volt electric with boom and spot wand, adjustable pressure regulator with a recalculating agitator (mixer). $150.00 to $500.00 depending on bells and whistles.

    Try to find a rig that fits on your mower, pulling a sprayer is a PITA. :D

    I would only use a pull behind sprayer when doing
    very large lawns.You really run the risk of toasting
    the flowers on smaller properties. On the other hand,
    a backpack sprayer is very limited. You do not want
    to try and treat larger areas with it. It is mainly
    for spot-spraying. You should invest in a powered unit
    I have a 200 gal. electric unit mounted on an 8' tra-
    iler.About $4,000.00 investment.
