    Does anyone use a backpack sprayer to spray Stonewall, or does it take a 200 gallon tank?

    I mean I guess you could but it would take forever to do a whole yard with a back pack sprayer. the labor would kill you. where it could take you an hour to spray a yard it would take me with a skid 10 minutes.

    That's all I use right now. You probably won't want to do anything over 20,000 sq ft with a back pack. I'm sure others would say under 10,000. But it is what it is.

    I was asking because I went to JDL and was told you cant really spray it with a backpack. That didn't seem right to me.

    Could be they said that because it may need to be agitated and some backpacks don't have an agitator so the product may sink to the bottom of the tank and not get proper coverage.

    if you dont have the right set up to spray it why not just buy granular?

    stonewall is a pre not a post.. i know its cheaper i use barricade liquid bc its cheaper and easier for me to spray out but i have a z spray jr but if i didnt i'd use the granular and just pass the price on to the customer...

    do you have your applicator license?
    Def use granular if you don't have a tank sprayer or z spray. you will look unprofessional and what ever money you would save on liquid you will use on your labor.
