    Do you grab your backpack blower or a compact/commercial handheld to clear the hard surfaces?

    Why?

    You do because the residual, provided you were using a product with a pesticide, would be considered off site contamination (similar to drift).

    Allow me to be more clear.



    There is granular product on the driveway after you make your application.

    You grab your blower to clear the surface. Is it a big backpack blower or a smaller compact one?


    What do you use in your fert/squirt set-up and why?

    Smaller.

    It simply takes up less space in the truck. Backpacks are cumbersome to carry around in my setup.

    I would always just carry a hand blower. Alot cheaper, takes up less space, and still does the job. If I was doing a big commercial with alot of sidewalks/had surface areas, I might throw a BP on the truck if one was available, but only occasionally.
