Rolling Backpack Sprayer
“This is my latest modification to make my life easier,” says Billy Gilbert, Apex, N.C., who was tired of carrying around a heavy backpack sprayer.
    “I’ve been using a backpack sprayer with a hand pump to spray weeds for many years. I recently bought a battery-operated spray rig from The Petra Company (www.petratools.com) which is easier to use but still heavy. When I spray weeds, I use six to seven backpack loads so it’s a fair amount of work and it’s also getting harder to fill the sprayer and strap it on.
    “So, I came up with the idea of using the frame from a dead pressure washer and turning it into a carrier for the sprayer. Since the sprayer is electric-powered, I just have to pull it around and spray. When I’m finished, I take off the bungee cord and take the sprayer off the plywood base to flush it out. Works great.”
