We live in a 1940s bungalow neighborhood and this sprayer is perfect. The 1 qt. size goes way farther than I imagined (I use it for insecticide treatment only). I am so glad I skipped buying the 1 Gallon sprayer I had initially considered. The best feature is the adjustable copper tip. Way better than plastic!
The brass tip makes this sprayer better than the rest. Sprays hard far on stream or a nice misty fog on wide. Easy to pump and pressurize. I plan to buy another for weed killer. Wish they came in different colors!
Don't waste your money on this metal-tip sprayer or the CAS Strerifab sprayer. I threw these 3 away after getting a $29 Dura-Sprayer that does what it's supposed to: spray in a fan pattern, plus it has a hose wand so you don't have to stoop, and is half the price!
I am not happy with the adjustable nozzle. When you try to get a fine spray there is only little leaway for the adjustment in the fine spray area. Also it would be nice if the spout was about 6" longer. Would be nice to have marks on the spray body to show 1 qt. and 11/2 qt. I had to put them on myself.
Great sprayer for small jobs and I use it for large jobs rather than a large sprayer because of its lightweight. I have been using the qt sprayer for about 10 years and love them. Just don't pull up too hard when pumping or you will strip the threads in the little top. I have 4 of them and even use one to apply fly repellent on the cows because it streams a good distance and it is quiet so as not to disturb the cows and the repellent is some what thick but sprays great. I use one for herbicide and algae at the pond. It just suits me great!!!!
