Whether you own a landscaping business or have a yard you need to maintain, weeds can be a constant and nagging problem and one that’s tough to get rid of. Sometimes it’s a good idea to have professional landscaping and garden materials to get the job done right so it’s not a task you keep having to revisit. Having weed sprayers can help exponentially when it comes to getting rid of pesky weeds. There are several different types of pumps to consider depending on your needs.On-the-Back Sprayers
Sprayers that fit on a worker’s back or on your back are the most common. They’re also known as knapsack sprayers and there are different types available. Holding the nozzle as you walk gives you extra control as to where and how you’re spraying the poison. Larger capacities may be troublesome on sensitive backs which is why there are different options.Wheeled Sprayers
Wheeled sprayers, instead of fitting on the back like a knapsack, are attached to a rolling mechanism that you can roll on the ground. With wheeled sprayers, you may still have to do a bit of bending and crouching, but the tank does not rest on your back. There are two different types of wheeled and knapsack sprayers; manual and motorised with different types of pressure.Motorised Sprayers
Both knapsack and wheeled sprayers offer motorised options. This type sprays a certain amount of poison each time and you don’t have as much control over how much poison to spread on a particular area. However, the motorised options allow for less time-consuming measurement of each spray so the job can be performed more quickly. With an pneumatic, non-motorised sprayer, you must measure as you spray each time, requiring two hands to spray the poison.Differing Capacities
When it comes to sprayer tanks used for weed and pest control supplies, there are different capacities. Larger lawns will need a higher capacity tank so you don’t have to refill the tank with poison numerous times to perform a job. Smaller capacities are easier for the on-the-back sprayers, however. Popular capacities include 50L, 60L and 100L, although there are larger tanks.
