There are many options in the marketplace when it comes to sprayers. Depending on your industry, deciding which options and features to include can quickly get confusing.
However, choosing the right sprayer for your job should not be a daunting task. Whether you are jsut starting out in a new business or you are a seasoned spray applicator, there are a few things you should consider before buying new equipment. You should start by answering a couple of questions to help you determine the sprayer that best fits your needs:
- What are you spraying? (Trees? Lawns? Golf Course?)
- Will you be spraying by hand or using a vehicle?
- What type of vehicle are you using to transport the sprayer?
- What chemicals are you applying?
- How big or small is the area you are spraying?
Once you've got answers to these questions, consider the following options:
These sprayers are usually mounted in the back of pickup trucks or utility vehicles. Skid sprayers are popular among pest control operators and landscapers because the sprayer can easily be transported from site to site.
2-Wheel sprayers are often used when the sprayer is pulled by an ATV or another type of vehicle. They are great for large areas such as golf courses and sports fields, where a pickup truck or walking is not suitable.
Since they are easy to maneuver, 4-Wheel sprayers are typically preferred by customers who are in need of a sprayer they can pull by hand. Due to the pivoting front axle and T-handle, these sprayers are ideal for use in tight areas such as greenhouses or nurseries where the sprayer can be pulled along by hand and the operator can spray hard-to-reach locations.
3-Point Hitch Sprayers
3-Point Hitch sprayers are perfect for customers who plan to hitch the sprayer to a tractor in order to spray large areas like golf courses, athletic fields, crop fields, pastures and lawns. Large areas can be sprayed, without the spray applicator having to leave the cab. Booms or boomless nozzles can be attached, depending on the application.
Spot sprayers are the ideal equipment for spraying along fences, keeping weeds at bay and spraying other hard to reach places. They are designed to tackle smaller areas while providing more gallon capacity and a more reliable application than hand-held or backpack sprayers.

Pesticides are widely used across the industries we serve. They offer protection against pests that transmit diseases which can harm crops, plants, humans and pets. There are many different types of pesticides such as herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides. Each is quite effective at controlling pests when used appropriately.
Handling pesticides safely can have a huge impact on the efficacy of your application. There are, however, risks involved when using any type of chemicals. The applicator responsible for spraying the solution must be properly trained on how to handle, transport, mix, apply, and store these chemicals.
The University of Georgia College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences Cooperative Extension Service has made available a thorough guide on handling pesticides. At Sprayer Depot, we’ve done the homework for you. Read below for our quick recap on Safe Handling of Pesticides.
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 experience, 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.
The KT100P15B12 is one of our most popular Kings Sprayers® 2-Wheel Sprayers model. Our 2-wheel sprayers are designed for easy handling as they can be pulled by a utility vehicle, ATV, compact trailer or even a golf cart. Great for tree, shrub, and turf spraying, this sprayer is ideal for lawns, pastures, golf courses and athletic fields.Read More
Spray hose is an essential part of your sprayer, but it's often overlooked. It’s easy to ignore the hose when there are many other spray components to consider. However, making sure you choose the right spray hose for the job is an important step to ensure the quality of your application.
Spray hose come in a variety of materials capable of handling different liquids like pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. It also comes in various diameters and lengths. A few other things to consider when selecting a spray hose include the spraying pressure needed, the flexibility of the hose, and temperature resistance. Our savvy and friendly Customer Service Technicians can help match you with the best type for your application.Read More
Spring is just a few weeks away and now is the perfect time to start planning for weed control. However, before you pull out the chemicals and get your sprayer ready to go, consider the following key elements to an effective weed control application:Read More
Spray tips may be the most neglected component in your sprayer. We sell the best, most reliable and highest quality spray tips on the market, like Hypro and TeeJet. Let's face it though, even the best tips don't last forever. All spray tips wear out and eventually need to be replaced. A worn out spray tip can result in improper chemical application which can often have serious consequences including loss of crop, wasted money and even potential health risks.
The life of a spray tip depends on the abrasiveness and corrosiveness of the spray solution, so it's important to select the right spray tip for the application. Replace spray tips and nozzles immediately if you notice a change in flow rate or a change in pattern distribution.
