Image Wife picked this sprayer up for me and I thought just whar I need , already have three backpacks. I was wrong . It has two quick release nozzles for wide and narrow applications , and rechargeable 18V battery. The pressure is adjustable and wide covers a big area saving a bunch of time . Really impressed so far after 5 gallons . Dan

Yes ! Plan to use mine again after a short cold spell coming in . Impressed how far it can spray with the wide and will use the narrow attachment soon on a hard to get to spot . I have been using Tribune and Prosecutor mix to great effect . Dan


narrow attachment on a very hard to get to spot . Dan

Image We got lucky today and Granddaughter’s husband was free to help us reblock the second island . Ripped out old , supplied black dirt and hauled these large blocks to project . Old blocks were hauled below and stacked . We started around 10:00 and finished up at noon . Spent afternoon mowing since rain is coming in tonight . Dan

Our place is undergoing dramatic modification.

- one month ago I had all the weed trees on the front facing property cut down and hauled away
- a few days ago I had the fence in the backyard removed and any weed trees along the fence-line removed
- next, a new split rail fence goes in
