New Product – Electric Backpack Sprayer with Precision Spray Technology
Green Shoots will be offering a new electric sprayer in 2017. The sprayer will operate on ultra low pressure. This has lots of advantages including more precision and less off-target spray. This is especially important when spraying herbicides because off-target spray can harm desirable plants and waste expensive herbicides. The battery will last for a full day. The sprayer can also easily be converted into a foam dispenser. The sprayer will have all sorts of other great features, many of which are shown in the following photos.
The pressure can be adjusted in increments of 0.2 psi and from 1.5 psi to 12 psi. Pressure from about 1.5 psi to 10 psi works great for dispensing foam. Pressure from about 5 psi to 13 psi works great for spray. Green Shoots will also offer a very comfortable backpack frame with a hip belt.
Remember with this electric sprayer there is no pump lever, so one hand can hold the spray wand and the other can be free. Elimination of the pump lever also makes it much easier to maneuver in thick brush.
