NorthStar ATV Broadcast and Spot Sprayer - 26 Gallon, 2.2 GPM, 12 Volt
This product replaces an ATV sprayer that had a traditional boom delivery system. This boomless system is great although we will probably rejet it to achieve proper droplet size. Additionally it comes with the Northern Tool pump which are a world apart from the standard shurflow.

Should have purchased one years ago. Great product works as designed. Spraying distance great. Would recommend this product.

I had peviously bought a Northstar 8-gallon spot sprayer for use in the bed of my Gator for weed control around the house. This year, due to heavier rains, we've had a horrible influx of Russian Thistle (tumbleweed). As I have four acres, I need to kill back the weeds and get the land returned to wild grasses. The prior spot sprayer worked so well, I decided to get this 26-gallon one. It will also fit in the bed of the Gator, kicks out 2.2 gallons per minute, and sprays a 14'-wide swath. To run this weed control program next spring, I need to spray the whole area, and this one should turn the trick, at a much lower price than most such.

;Pretty darn good
+Easy set up, mostly assembled, instructions only in English. .No missing parts or hardware, SAE hardware.,
Rugged construction, quality nozzles, wands and hoses.
Performance better than advertised.
Brute of a pump draws a continuous 8 amps, suggest keep ATV or Quad running to keep battery charged
Sprayer is a keeper.

Much better than expected!
WOW! I had another brand that I used for years but sold it at my farm sale. Found I needed one at our new house. I debated between the 2.2GPM or the bigger unit. Very pleasantly surprised at the quality, pressure and capacity. Using the broadcast wand I sprayed over 4 acres in 30 minutes going through two tanks. I highly recommend this unit over any farm store brands. This also was my first purchase from Northern which has greatly enhanced my view of purchasing more items from them. Very Satisfied customer.

NorthStar ATV Broadcast and Sprayer - 26 Gallon
I would highly recommend. Assembly was very easy. The Sprayer is simple to use. The attachment straps makes it easy to afix to ATVs or even pickup truck tailgates, plug in reciever trays for SUvs. I filled with my Roundup and water and the 26 gallon was perfect for my 2 acre food plot with no water source on site.
I would recommend the 26 gallon tank over the 15 gallon version.

I had to tighten the clamps.
I had to use some additional teflon tape to stop the leaking of the 2nd port for the additional line.
I really would like a pressure release port that would cause product mixing when not spraying with the wand.
I think for the price I paid that these three items could be fixed and included

Northstar ATV Sprayer
Sprayer was easy to set up and works as described. The one nozzle design for the broadcast sprayer works very well. The option of using the wand sprayer in conjunction with the broadcaster is also a nice feature. The motor has plenty of power and shoots a consistent stream. Good product for the money..

should have bought 2 years ago
I used the sprayer on 60 acres with areas of noxious weeds. It worked very well. I was done in 4 hours with what used to take me 2 long days with a hand sprayer. I would definitely buy again.

Best Purchase of the Year
This sprayer cut my spray time from several hours down to about 30 minutes. The unit is well designed and sturdy. The volume output is perfect for my 2.5 acre lawn. The wand will shoot about 20 feet and the spray boom delivers about a 12-14 ft wide pattern. The on-demand pump is nice and needed no prime to start spraying. The included straps for holding the tank down work well and there are four threaded mounting holes on the bottom of the tank which allowed for even more secure mounting to my trailer.
I mounted the rig longways on a modified mower/lawn trailer so I had to modify the spray boom feature since I mounted the tank 90 degrees off it's intended design. See Pictures). My local hardware stores plumbing department had everything needed for the modifications.
This sprayer is nice and lends itself to a variety of applications. Mine is self powered/contained using a 12 volt top mount truck battery and a modified lawn trailer so I can use it with a golf cart. I love it.
