NorthStar ATV Broadcast and Spot Sprayer - 26 Gallon, 2.2 GPM, 12 Volt
works great around the farm
I bought this sprayer to mount on my atv and spot spray around buildings,grain tanks,etc. and it works great ..we use a spot sprayer a lot on all the farms to keep up around all the structures and this one has held up nice ..just strap it down plug it in and it will spray all day long with zero trouble,i have also found a lot of uses for the broadcast nozzle on food plots,driveways,and even yard maintence, I highly recommend this sprayer

Best Purchase I've made for a long time!
This is the best purchase I've made for quite some time ... so far!!! Just used this today, from the back of my little pickup. I first used the broadcast feature of the sprayer on about an acre of land --- it took just a few minutes. I then held the spraying wand and sprayed the fenceline of my entire property --- it went SO quickly!!! I LOVE the convenience & speed! I have a rolling 3 gallon sprayer, manual pump that I used to use. This sprayer was SO MUCH FASTER and the coverage was complete!! LOVE This Tool! Would definitely recommend!

Very easy to assemble and worked perfectly right away. Will for sure get my use out of it for food plots, garden and watering trees on my property.

Nice Spray Rig
Purchased this sprayer for our small vineyard. I mounted it to a garden wagon and tow it behind our lawn tractor. Use it to spray insecticide and fertilizer. Only issue we have had is the wires were not long enough for this type of set up so I lengthened them. When the tank is full the sprayer moves around a lot on the cart. At times it wanted to fall over. I'm going to mount feet to the bottom to spread the footprint. All in all we really like not having to use a back pack sprayer that has to be refilled so many times to do the same work.

This worked out great. I was able to spray my lawn and kill the weeds. I ended up mounting it to my aerator to be able to tow it. The wire could be longer and have a cigarette lighter attachment but I used it differently than intended.

Good Sprayer at an affordable price
I needed to find an inexpensive sprayer to spray about 10 acres for weed control and fertilize. This sprayer has done just that. Be aware application rate is substantially different between broadcast and spot, you need to be conscious of that. The broadcast sprayer is pretty nifty, without big long arms to get damaged. Be aware that the final mounting height of the sprayer affects coverage as well. Assembly, Hook-up and operation were easy and straight forward. Good product without breaking the bank.
As mentioned, the only real concerns I had were application rate needs to be dialed in for each product applied AND application method, as the tank does not last long on broadcast vs spot spraying. Need to determine application method prior to mixing each tank to acheave correct application rates. The other issue is, without spray arms, the spray pattern is derectly affected by the height of the sprayer off the ground.
None of these are big deals, easily worked around, Just need to be aware of it.

Strapped the sprayer on a homemade rack that mounts to the receiver of my John Deere gator UTV. This unit is awesome with having the remote switch in hand while using as a broadcast sprayer when spraying my yard for controlling ants. Also works great as a spot sprayer for spraying the ant mounds prior to using the broadcast mode. Great product & I strongly recommend purchasing one if you are the owner of an ATV or UTV!!! You won't regret investing in this product for the price you pay for it, especially if you have pride in your yard as I do for spraying insecticides or herbicides!! Thanks northern for having such wonderful products at these affordable prices. Not to mention having those big cutback sale prices on so many different products!!

I have used the sprayer around my house and farm quite a bit. I have sprayed weeds with the broadcast wand and used the spot sprayer wand. I have put quite a bit of fluid through this sprayer. I have found the sprayer to reasonably reliable, the pump works great, the tank never leaks, hoses work good. The one downside of this is the sprayer wands. They are made out of plastic and are constantly cracking and breaking, I've had to replace them a few times. Because of that the extended warranty is a great option, but I've found I can get replacement wands at my local hardware store cheaper than the warranty. The sprayer works great but why can't they see the weakness and just up the price a couple of dollars and use metal handles on the sprayers????

Use it everyday
Works great for broadcasting and spot spraying on the fly. Pump has some issues short circuiting at the wires coming from the head of the pump. A great unit overall.
