Backpack Sprayer Buyers Guide

Back to Sprayer Buyers Guide > Backpack Sprayers Buyers Guide
Backpack sprayers are extremely useful in a variety of horticulture and agriculture applications. They're typically used for medium-duty spot spraying of fertilizers and pesticides in home gardens, lawns and small orchards.

Unlike handheld sprayers, backpacks provide the added benefit of not having to carry the sprayer around with you by hand. This is why they are such a popular choice among professional lawn care contractors who are spraying yard after yard, all day long.
How they can vary
  • Wand and/or spray nozzles can vary by design, spray volume and spray pattern
  • Different types of pumps, i.e. piston vs. diaphragm, internal vs. external
  • Some have more durable, metal pump components
  • Some are powered by a battery or gasoline engine
  • Some serve as "misters" which is popular in greenhouse, vineyard and orchard applications where very fine spray particles are needed to provide total plant surface coverage
  • Some serve as blowers and allow for the application of dry particles (dust)
Looking to buy the best backpack sprayer you can find? The experts from GEMPLER'S can help steer you in the right direction.
