NorthStar ATV Tree Sprayer - 26 Gallon, 5.5 GPM, 12 Volt
OK But Could Be Better
I have a small apple orchard and use the sprayer to apply a variety of sprays to the trees. It works OK but not great. It will not get a spray higher than about 20 feet. I am not sure if my unit has a problem but it tends to entrain alot of air leading to a pulsing of spray.
I like the fact that the agitator is built in and it does seem to work well to keep the sprays mixed. This is particular important with Surround, which is a clay mixture that tends to settle quickly.
The sprayer appears to be designed for use on the back of an ATV - but I use it with my Kubota (put it in the bucket of the front end loader). All in all a nice unit for the price.
