This is the season for a De-Icing Sprayer!

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Jan 09, 2018

This first month of the brand new year has proven to be one of the harshest in recent national history.  In just the first week of January, 2018, we've witnessed record freezing temperatures across country; businesses, schools and highways have all been affected by the weather. Many times, preparation is the one single thing that can de-icing.jpgturn an icy, cold day into a safe and productive one for both businesses, school children and the community. Whether it be roads, parking lots or sidewalks, all of these surfaces fall victim to dangerous ice brought by the freezing winter temperatures and the best way to tackle that problem is to be armed with the best and most efficient de-icing equipment.

Here at Sprayer Depot we offer two different types of de-icing sprayers:

Although different in some aspects, both of these de-icing sprayers share several similar features, including a 100 gallon tank and a 6061 aircraft grade aluminum frame that is lightweight, and resistant to both chemicals and rust. Additionally, both sprayers come with an outstanding 5 year frame / 5 year tank / 1 year parts and labor warranty (limited to manufacturer defects).

For more information and to discuss if a de-icing sprayer is right for you, talk to one of our expert Customer Service Technicians:  call 800-228-0905 or email or use the Live Chat feature on our website.

1.) Snow Removal

Our friends up north could use the 2-wheel trailer sprayer for snow removal in the winter months, as this model doubles as a de-icing/anti-icing sprayer. After all, not all de-icing jobs are highways. Keep areas like driveways, sidewalks and parking lots safe and free of ice. Just add a de-icing solution to the tank and go to town clearing a path with 12’ booms in action. Use the boomless nozzle to spray frozen tires on your vehicle too. It’s a great tool to increase safety and access in the winter.

2.) Watering

An obvious choice, the 2-wheel trailer sprayer is a great resource for watering. With this product on hand, all you have to do is fill up the tank and be on your way watering large areas with the 12’ boom option. We’ve even seen some customers who tow the 2-wheel sprayer behind a mower, allowing them to multitask by watering at the same time as they cut the grass. Talk about efficient. Using the spray gun option you can easily spray trees and have a tank full of water at the ready for multiple stops.

3.) Fertilizing

Using the 2-wheel trailer sprayer to fertilize commercial, residential and recreational areas is a practical alternative to walk-behind rotary fertilizers. It’s also a time-saving option and has shown that this type of application results in applying product more consistently for the job since employees become less fatigued than they might otherwise with the push options. On top of that, using a liquid fertilizer reduces potential runoff and allows for more chemical control.

4.) Herbicides

These sprayers are a great option for herbicide application, or weed control, by allowing you to spray a pre-emergent herbicide to an entire lawn using the boom, as just one example. After all, there are a variety of herbicides used to combat a variety of weeds, in order to achieve a healthy lawn.

5.) Insecticides

Pest control is a popular use for the 2-wheel trailer sprayer within the lawn and landscape segment as outdoor spaces are often threatened by a multitude of pests. With a two-wheel sprayer, folks can easily apply an insecticide across an entire lawn or planter area using the 12’ boom or boomless nozzle.

Groundhog Day’s Impact on Spray Season

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Mon, Feb 02, 2015

GroundhogStep right up, folks. It’s Groundhog Day and quite a show for some. Wikipedia tells us, “according to folklore, if it’s cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early. But if it’s sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will persist for six more weeks.” Whether you believe in this folklore or not, it’s hard to tune out the predictions that are blazoned across news sites. After all, these predictions could mean spray season would come sooner, or may be delayed.

We tuned in while Punxsutawney Phil made his annual ‘prediction’ calling for six more weeks of winter. Brr! Let’s take a look at what these scenarios can mean for our industry.

Keep in mind, if the groundhog’s prediction for six more weeks of winter weather is true, that means spray season could be delayed in most parts of the country as snow and ice will likely hinder any chances of planting for our agriculture friends, and continue to keep pests away for those in the pest control industry, to name a few implications. For most of the U.S., the spray season doesn’t typically start until March/April anyway, but with the thought of six more weeks of winter and the impact #Juno had on the Northeast a few weeks ago you can see how we may be looking at an April season, as opposed to starting earlier in March.

However, if Punxsutawney Phil predicts that spring will come early, many in the spray industry will rejoice. With an early spring season, planting could come sooner as grounds have time to thaw and weeds could breath new life meaning our friends in the horticulture field will be spraying before we know it, to name just a few spray season effects. 

February is a great time to prepare for the coming season. Keep an eye out here on our blog for our forthcoming post that will share “Tips for Preparing for Spray Season.” We all have to do it, so a handy checklist can make the process go that much smoother. More on that later… 

Of course, no matter what the groundhog predicts, it’s Mother Nature who will truly predict when spray season will creep up. One thing is for certain - we’ll keep an eye on how this pans out and continue to provide you with resources to stay on top of your game throughout the season. And for those in snow-covered areas, we have some great de-icing sprayers like this Kings Sprayers model.
