View Full Version : 5 gal boom sprayer

Has anybody used and would recommend a portable boom sprayer?
electric or ground speed driven. I saw a 5 gallon boom sprayer with what looked like a 6' boom being used by a company on a parkway.
By the time I could turn around, the guy was gone. ( major road with lots of traffic and few side streets). Any information would be greatly appreciated!

I got one but I converted it to fit my zero turn mostly for Liquid Nitrogen for a quick green up in spring all right but be best extremly large areas where not to worried about drift but would not really recommend unless spraying large areas

Tiedeman, Yes he was spraying the parkway.

The unit I saw looked like a appliance dolly with a small 5 gal tank
on the front and a boom attachment about 12" from the ground. I think "Weed Man" franchise has a electric model. The one I saw looked like it was wheel driven.

Im looking to do small yards.

Thanks for your interest

Do you want it to go on a riding mower or something?

I would like a push type sprayer that resembles a Drop spreader - only for liquid chemicals

I could be wrong, but doesn't lesco offer a type of rotary spreader that has a liquid insert container that you can set in there
