    If you are like me you have about 5 worn out hand sprayers for the yard, to spray weeds for example. Well I found out that if you have an air compressor you can remove the wand end of the spayer and using your air compressor you can charge the sparyer by blowing air back into the tank, even through the handle. So you don't have to pump the thing up 50 times a minute. This is for the cheap folks out there tired of planned obsolesces.

    I spray a lot of vegetation killer around stuff since I don't like the stains the weed wack leaves. A few yrs ago I bought one of those 3 gallon back pack harness sprayers at Home Cheapo. It's great, I just pump the wand every now and again while I'm spraying. Usually one fillup does my whole acre.

    I do have to set it on my truck tailgate to put it on though.

    Yep approach it more like you are filling your air suspension.

    Might have to give this a try...sone used my sprayer last fall on deck (cleaner) & I noticed he didn't rinse very well. Gotta love the "cheap" labor...;) Maybe I'll ask for a new sprayer for Father's Day..??
