All sprayers come with a CD-ROM that covers all aspects of field maintenance to reduce downtime and carry a two-year consumer warranty and a one-year professional warranty.

Commercial Backpack Sprayers

BP5

Heavy-duty blow-molded tanks with UV inhibitors are ergonomically designed for comfort - with adjustable, heavily padded shoulder straps that follow the contours of the body and eliminate stress points. With no exposed parts, the internal piston pump is protected for the rigors of everyday use but, is easily repaired. Spraying pressures from 15 to 168 psi, tank holds 5.3 gallons and has a brass wand.

The BP5 is recommended for landscaping, golf course management, forestry, farming, pest control, arborist and property maintenance and can be used with herbicides, pesticides, insecticides, fertilizers, chlorine-based materials, diesel, wetable powders, stains, sealers and oil-based and solvent-based chemicals.

BP4E, BP4P

These 4-gallon tanks are available with an external piston pump (BP4P) or a sealed Diaphragm Pump (BP4E) -- both of which are repairable and offer spraying pressures from 15 to 50 psi. The diaphragm pump has been skillfully engineered so that there is no friction between moving parts and the piston pump has been tooled for better sealing and longer wear. Both tanks feature UV inhibitors and the BP4E has a 47” industrial hose, 20” brass wand and brass adjustable nozzle while the BP4P has a 40” industrial hose, 20” fiberglass wand and plastic adjustable nozzle.

Commercial Handheld Sprayers

HS4, HS2

Both units come with a 20” brass wand with adjustable brass nozzle, 47” industrial hose and sprayers are available in a 2 (HS2) or 4-gallon (HS4) tanks, with a repairable compression pump. Spraying pressure is 120 psi for both units. These versatile sprayers are great for projects ranging from applying fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, oil-based sealers, diesel, pesticides, and other liquid solutions like chlorine to sealing and cleaning decks, fences, shake roofs, aluminum siding, concrete, brick, and stone.
