Does Your Backpack Sprayer Do It All?

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Apr 08, 2016

Is It the Right Sprayer for the Job?

Regardless of the size of your company, whether you are just starting out or have years of Backpack_sprayers.jpgexperience, you probably have a backpack sprayer or two in your equipment fleet. Backpack sprayers are a great option for spot treatments. They work well in those small, hard-to-reach areas where large equipment might not be able to access.

Backpack sprayers are inexpensive, simple to use and easy to maintain. However, oftentimes spray applicators will attempt to use a backpack sprayer for jobs that are better suited for a skid sprayer.

The truth is a backpack sprayer can’t do it all. No matter how convenient and economical they are, they simply cannot compare to bigger sprayers when it comes to performance. Not only do they have limited capacity to hold large amounts of liquid, they also cannot output as much pressure. Productivity and the effectiveness of the application will suffer if the wrong type of equipment is used.

Take the pressure off your shoulders (literally) and invest in the proper sprayer for your business.

A small skid sprayer such as the Kings Sprayers® 50 Gallon Skid Sprayer with 7 gpm Roller Pump KS50P5-50-gallon-skid-sprayer.jpgcan be mounted on any utility vehicle for easy portability. A skid sprayer offers constant output of pesticide for adequate coverage on large areas. It can hold a lot more liquid than a backpack sprayer so no need to constantly stop in the middle of application to refill and mix chemicals. Out in the field, it can be easy to make mistakes while rushing to get the job done. You may end up over or under mixing your pesticide which can have negative consequences such as loss of crops or contamination from runoff.

The benefits of keeping the right equipment in your fleet are numerous, but we understand the initial cost of purchasing might hold you back from taking the plunge. Check out this blog post we published last year. It offers some tips to consider when purchasing new equipment.  You will increase your efficacy and also your productivity, which means extra time to take on even more jobs and grow your customer base.

We offer low prices on all spray equipment, parts, and accessories, so don’t limit the success of your business by using the wrong equipment. Please consult with one of our Customer Service Technicians on the best equipment for you.
