Master Gardener Rechargeable Cart Sprayer - 12 Volt, 9 Gallon Capacity, Model# PCD-E3-009B-MM
Sprayer was easy to assemble taking just a few short minutes, charged the battery overnight as suggested. Went out to spray weeds and was surprised at how much faster this was versus a pump up, completed my yard (7 acres) in less then an hour and the battery was still at full strength. Cart moves around the yard very easy and even when full it was very balanced.
I would rate this sprayer as one of the top on the market right now.

My wife loves using this for her compost tea spraying. We have had the sprayer for about a year and it stopped working while spraying last week. I looked at the manual on line and went through the steps to find out what was wrong. I removed the electric pump and removed the cap on the pressure switch and found there was a screw that had come out which holds the pressure switch to the motor. I put the screw back and the motor worked fine. This has been the only issue we had with the unit. I would certainly recommend this. One other thing to be aware of is if you live in a cold climate you must make sure that the unit and the spray gun are free of water over the winter. If not the water can freeze and the spray gun can crack and the pump may be damaged.

This is just what I wanted and it works very well. Pulling (not wearing) the sprayer and not pumping by hand is wonderful! Charges quickly and runs for at least an hour - have not gone beyond this yet. Has just enough power to do the job and I wish the spraying hose was longer, but this is the ideal solution for and older person (or anyone who wants the convenience). As with MANY products now the directions for assembly are not very good, but with a little experience it was easy to put together.

No more hand pumping for me! This battery powered sprayer really puts out. I have been using it for weed and vine killing, but I am thinking of getting another one for watering / fertilizing. I recommend that you get some lock washers for the handle knobs as the knobs and pins will get loose and fall off as you work. Assembly instructions for the front spray nozzle are sketchy, but you can find more info and video on the internet from sites other than the manufacturer. The large wheels are nice when going over rough terrain and the solid rubber means no need to inflate or check pressure of the tires. This sprayer is so much easier to work with than any other sprayer that I have ever used. I wish I had known about it sooner. Those hand pump units are just a big waste of time and energy. The 9 gallon capacity of this sprayer seemed like a lot, but you will hardly notice the weight with the wheels and handle so easy to move as needed. If you have several acres of land to weed, this is the sprayer to get.

I went from a pump sprayer to this because I was tired of pumping and refilling. This sprayer holds a lot or produce and does everything I hoped it would be. Very impressive.

When I purchased the Master Gardener Sprayer my husband was very skeptical. He felt that it would be too hard to roll for me. However, I only fill it up about half way and it is very easy for me to use. I have not run out of a charge, even when spraying our fence line. The only complaint I have is that it is difficult for me to empty and too time consuming to run out through the boom. I absolutely love this sprayer. A bit pricey. If it holds up, it will be worth it.

No More Hand Pump-Ups
Finally got it put together and tested with water only. No leaks or problems occurred, Will spray for weeds like we want, The coil hose is cute but limiting. I will change it to a 20' straight hose to allow a little more range from the unit before moving it to the next section,. The charger and battery worked great.
The pump does stall out when you release the trigger, and that saves battery charge. The directions could have been more specific. The pictures on the box helped, but the website and directions were poor.

I was looking for something that was smaller than my wagon sprayer used for large volume spraying. I had a back pack sprayer as well. This is working out wonderfully. It has a large capacity, it was easy to put together, easy to maneuver even with 8 gallons , charges fairly quickly and is powerful. My wife even said she could use this to help do our drive which is a 900 foot gravel drive. So far it is working great after two months of use

After having purchased at least 3 other sprayers in the last 2 years ( all failed/became unusable within 6 months) this is a sprayer that is fairly rugged; it holds about 9 gallons.It is heavy for me when fully loaded, but does wheel with effort.
I use it to spray my small fruit tree orchard.
Thus far( have only used it twice) it holds a charge for at least 1 hour, and is easy to rinse out when I am done.
My only comment to improve this would be to have a longer hose or longer wand to reach taller objects.

Product does everything that is claims to do and appears well made. the wheels make it easy to move on uneven ground and full of liquied. I had to lengthen the on/off switch cord so my wife could drive the lawn mower while towing the unit and have enough cord to reach the drivers seat. We'll see how long the battery will recharge and last.
