    Wand Issue

    By Dale on 08/25/2019

    I have used this product for years and have never had any issue with it doing a good job. My complaint is with the wand. I have the new battery type wand and this is my third unit that has had a bad wand. It works for a couple of months then quits. I have changed batteries and it is still dead. I am getting ready to just start putting it in pressure tanks and spraying from there. The wand needs to be researched and determine why they are not lasting long. The only pull handle worked better than this new design.

    Can’ tell

    By R. on 05/24/2020

    I hear it’s a pretty effective product by those who were able to get it out of its container. Seriously, your Ortho wand is a joke. Only wish you offered the old fashioned pump spray. Unfortunately, our landfills are filling fast with battery operated Ortho sprayers.
