New Sprayers 2022

In order to combat PC and other plagues on my trees this year. I invested in a new sprayer. I had wanted a backpack battery powered unit but I wasn’t happy with the prices or buying a battery other then the same I am using for my other eq.

I ended up getting a Ironton ATV Spot Sprayer - 8-Gallon Capacity, 1 GPM, 12 Volt for $79 but its now down to $59. : Ironton ATV Spot Sprayer - 8-Gallon Capacity, 1 GPM, 12 Volt : Patio, Lawn & Garden

Because it was so much cheaper $9 vs $100 I got a telescoping spray rod from Aliexpress

To improve my coverage I picked up some multi nozels

My power is coming from portable jump starter from harbor freight
630 Peak Amp Portable Jump Starter and Power Pack with 250 PSI Air Compressor (

The sound you here is because irontron ships a cheap pump, with a pressure switch rathe then a reflux type pump.

the plastic on brass fitting of course leaks leeks.

Fortunately able to fix that with some thread lock from harbor freight.

Nice setup Carroll. I was faced with exactly the same dilemma and opted for the ATV sprayer just like you did. I just wheel it around in my Gorilla Cart. I did get a voltage regulator and a couple of Makita battery bases so I can run it off of my existing Makita batteries. Been running it for a year now. Works like a dream.


Nice I am going to need to get a cart I didn’t realize how heavy it gets when filled.
