I bought a backpack sprayer last year, turned out to be a piece of crap.

It was pump operated, I should have known better.

Anyway, I am interested in purchasing something that would actually work!

Show me what you've got forum!

What kind was it? In previous posts gilmour backpack sprayers got positive reviews here.

I have an Echo Back Pack sprayer, old as the hills. Have to spray the trigger once in awhile with PB Blaster but other than that she works like a charm.

I have no idea. It was a tank you wear like a schoolbag, and you have a gun you hold in your right hand, and you constantly have to use your left hand to pump air into the tank. It barely does anything. It just mists maybe a foot in front of me, evaporating before it touches what I want to spray LOL.

$100.00 junk.

You could tool time it. Stihl makes a backpack blower with a sprayer on it.

I am sure you could rig up some kind of tank float gauge. :)

that is not for spraying fertilizer it is for bugs. However most of the brands offer decent backpack sprayers that are of good quality. Redmax even offers one that has a top feed so it will not likely leak down your back and also stirs the mix while you are working. But echo, Shindawa also offer good sprayers.
