    I was lookin' through an AM Leonard catalog and saw a "Big Pro" walk behind sprayer. The unit is a motorless ground driven sprayer. Says it applies a consistent gal per K spray. Seems like the best solution to applying at a consistent rate regardless of the speed the operator walks. Anyone out there using one ? Thanks

    I rented one several years ago. It was fine for residential lawns. just be sure to watch out for your spray tips. They break very easily. I barely bumped a tree and SNAP!

    i used 1 it worked good on small props but it is a workout to push it at a constant speed and i can do the same thing with a backpac
