Hudson Trombone Sprayer - 150 PSI, Model# 61224
The Hudson Trombone Sprayer is just the ticket for small home spraying operations. Adjusting the spray tip allows for a fine spray to a stream that will reach over 10 feet. Used to spray small fruit trees and bushes, as well as garden plants. For the price, this sprayer is a great value and usable tool in the garden. I have a friend with tens of apple trees that uses this product to spray the trees each season - it was he who recommended this sprayer to me.

Easy and Excellent sprayer
I love this sprayer! It makes it very easy to spray all of my fruit trees. The spray is adjustable and it can spray really far. Just fill a bucket and start spraying. The spray comes out on both the push and pull of the "trombone" so it makes quick work of a project. I also used it on a very large project to spray a sealer on our new redwood fence and to seal a manufactured interlocking cement retaining wall. The spray gets into all the cracks and crevices. I did have to replace the sprayer after doing the fence and wall because the oils contained in the spray made the trombone "slip." I couldn't find any way to repair it so just bought a new one. Someone else may have an idea of how to get that oil out but it was worth the price of the sprayer in the time it saved me. I tried a regular pump sprayer but it kept getting clogged and didn't work nearly as well as the trombone for the fence and retaining wall project. I hope they keep making this and would like to see better instructions on how to take it apart and how to get any replacement parts if you need them. I do think that it should have been repairable. Northern Tool gave great service, shipped it quickly, and I will continue to buy products from them.

I have used my trombone sprayer frequently for 5 years to spray bleach solution 20 feet to the top of carport and under eaves in our humid southern climate. Other container sprayers I have tried and even the pressure washer will not deliver the bleach solution as high. The sprayer is not being damaged by the caustic bleach except for the weighted end which is loosing its vinyl protected coat. I do rinse it well after use and allow sprayer to dry before putting away. I have just ordered my second sprayer to keep should this item disappear from marketplace - cannot do without it!

It does what they advertise!!!
My father had a trombone sprayer while I was growing up. This trombone sprayer does everthing they say it does. It works as good or better than my dad's use to.

I love using the trombone sprayer. I can spray our fruit trees without having my husband get out the lawn tractor and the big 12 gallon sprayer. It works great for spraying in small areas, such as the roses and the vegetable garden.

Hudson trombone sprayer
The performance was poor or maybe fair on this sprayer. I would suggest buying a pump sprayer. It indicated this sprayer will spray up to 20 feet this is true but only for two seconds then you have to pump again and again. Save yourself time and money and purchase a pump up tank sprayer.

I have used this sprayer twice now on my fruit trees, it does a nice job, no problem reaching upper branches. This sprayer is well made & the price at Northern tool was outstanding

Great Problem solver sprayer
This is the sprayer I have been waiting for. No tank with unused chemistry, easy to clean, and far far greater range than a tank sprayer. Love it.

Just bought this replacement trombone sprayer. The old one I had was 30 years old and washer parts no longer available. New one has many improvements and works well for the small spraying jobs that I have. Too bad it is not available in retail stores.
