NorthStar High-Pressure ATV Tree Sprayer - 16 Gallon, 2 GPM, 12 Volt
Better than expected....
The product was easy to put together with good directions. Pump primed right up and the sprayer worked better than I expected. I am super happy with this product so far...

Good product for small to medium jobs
I have a 5 acre fruit grove. This sprayer is being used to spray specific trees at times that the turbine sprayer is not needed. I have owned the sprayer for 3 months and it has worked well. It has a powerful pump and will allow fine mist or long throwing spray. The only improvement would be to package this with a larger tank. The spray pistol is very good quality as well.

hi-pressure atv tree sprayer
this sprayer has many good features and originally worked like i expected: good spray height (30ft), hose length, light weight and mostly easy to clean.
after several uses i now have some on-going problems:
1. the wires continually pull out of the on/off switch causing repairs to be made during the middle of spraying. i finally just by passed it and leave it on since the on/off switch is such an issue. luckily, the cord is set up to bypass the switch.
2. after only 4 uses my sprayer now will only generate 50 lbs of pressure instead of 150 and that is WHEN i get the pump to prime. the directions don't provide enough problem solving.
if i cannot solve this prime/pressure problem then i'm going to return it and hope i got a lemon. i'm definately going to try a replacement because the unit really works well when it works.

Great little sprayer
This is a great little sprayer. Pretty easy to assemble out of the box. I really like the adjustability of the gun. It used to take me 5 to 6 hours to complete the spraying of my little orchard and vineyard. It took only 1.5 hrs to do the same spraying program, with much better coverage. If you want to ease the burden of spraying, buy this sprayer. Very easy to assemble, use, and clean. So far, no negative aspects. I had no problems spraying my large trees or my little trees. Got great coverage, and I was able to stay out of the mist pretty easy due to the range the spray gun has.

ATV Tree Sprayer
I purchased this unit to do double duty,i.e: spray about 100 trees for pine beetle control ,and to use as spot sprayer for weeds. The advertised 30 foot spray height is a stretch. Even a very short burst barely reaches that high. I pumped about 100 gal through it summer without any problem. Using the same nozzle for both applications works well.

High presser sprayer
I use this sprayer for my orchard and my garden. The greatest thing I like is it has enough reach for the full grown trees and it has a wide spray for spraying things like pole beans and sweet potatoes. It does take some time for it to get it's prime.

I have used a bottle sprayer for years to try to keep the pine-tiop-moth under control, with no luck. I have looked for a sprayer for my ATV and came across this sprayer fro their catalog, finally found one that works perfectly, after 20 years finally got control of the moth, and with the spray mist I can keep flies and mosquitos under control. We live on the edge of the Palo-Duro-Canyon, so we have all kinds of insects, but no more.
One thing when puttting hoses on make sure you double clamp and tighten securely, the first time I pressured up to 200 lbs water went every where, also tank needs to be full to get the primer to prime all lines. Spray head works great for misting or straight line sraying. Need to use spray burst for 200 lb spraying too keep pressure but around 175-180 lbs sprays pretty continously.
Yes I have actually recommended this to several people. Thanks for a great product !!

OK for a price
I bought on about 3 years ago and the pump gave out this year. So it worked good for 2-1/2 seasons. I used it about 4 times per season. I Bought another one this year, because I couldn't find a competitor and the first one was wired wrong and wouldnt work. They replaced it and it works but not to the pressure advertised. I will find something different next time if it kills me. I only use it for home pesticide.

NorhtStar ATV Tree Sprayer
Very pleased with sprayer, tried other types however created more work than benefit... this one much easier to use and operate. Great for spraying eves around house for mildue, the 35 foot hose is also very handy when getting to out of the way places. I use my sprayer in a UTV bed--- fits nicely.
This is a keeper for me.
