    and love it.
    I have been doing tick & mosquito sprays for a long while now using a spacesaver and a JD9 gun.
    It worked well enough.
    In the heat of getting mosquito sprays done for the 4th, the sprayer quit on me. (Turns out it was a simple fix)
    Anyway, I've been wanting to pick one up. But could never bring myself to part with the $.
    I was lucky enough to find one on Tuesday AM. Went and picked it up and headed out to do the sprays.
    It was great! No pulling a hose, no knocking things over with the hose, and I didnt sound like lord vader huffing and puffing through my respirator!
    Only complaint is it totally needs better pack straps.
    Anyone know of an after market type that are better padded?
    Definitely money well spent.
