Description

A knapsack sprayer is suitable for small plantings up to an acre in size. This sprayer is entirely manual and is carried on an operator's back. Also called a backpack sprayer, the knapsack sprayer is designed to be as light as practical. A typical empty weight is about 12 pounds. With 16 litres of water, the weight is approximately 45 pounds. The parts of the knapsack sprayer are the same as those found on most sprayers: a tank to hold the spray mix; a pump to produce pressure and flow; a regulator to control the flow; and at least one nozzle to atomize the spray mix. Tanks on the knapsack sprayer typically are made of plastic or steel and hold three to five gallons. Some knapsack sprayers have a mechanical agitator that moves when the pump is used. Others have jet agitation. Before spraying, shake the entire sprayer to ensure a uniform mix.
Knapsack sprayers can be used to apply liquid fertilizers, herbicides, liquid iron, pesticides, fungicides and bio-stimulants. Also known as backpack sprayers they are mounted on the operator; this provides greater flexibility allowing the user to spot treat in difficult to reach situations, making the knapsack sprayer an adaptable piece of kit.
