Picked one of these up for Christmas- is there any reason to supplement with the TeeJet nozzles that have been outlined in this forum? I tested today with the fan nozzle that comes with the setup and it seemed fine. I know that the CF valve isn’t needed due to the battery pumping at a constant pressure, but wondering about the other pieces.

I have been on this form for quite some time and tiring to learn as much as I can. Bought this backpack sprayer and decided to spray down Prodiamine. My question is how to do you, or what is the proper way to clean it out? I tried to flush it out with regular water then added a little bit of soap flushed it out again and I still get the bright yellow residue at the bottom. Do you dump it back into the same place into the yard? Also is it okay to spray herbicides and pesticides (obviously not at the same time) any help would be appreciated.

^$150 with the battery + charger

It would be nice as a tool only, but they are not currently selling it.

Another option has hit the market.

Man, I wish I would have seen this before I bought the Chapin. I already have the Ryobi 18v platform across multiple tools, this would have been a nice addition.

I have the one gallon version and bought it as a tool only, I'm sure eventually it will come like that as well. I love the whole 18volt line from ryobi. I have their string trimmer and edger combo and it does the whole yard with plenty of charge.

I was having some trouble with my Stihl backpack sprayer this morning, so I went down to my local farm store and bought one of these. Wow! I'll fix my Stihl when it's a little cooler outside, but I may sell it after using this Chapin 20V today.

You know, as good and durable as the SG20 is, combined with Stihl's fairly extensive battery equipment line, and taking into account their customer base of professional lawn care companies, I'm very surprised we haven't seen a battery powerd sprayer offering from Stihl yet.
