This copper beauty is the sine-qua-non of backpack sprayers and is still familiar in Europe, especially in the Italian wine country near Venice.

Other sprayers on the market are made of plastic or galvanized steel. and all have plastic working parts. This has all metal parts. Because the sprayer is made of copper (and not plastic, which can leech fluid) you can use a variety of liquids including water, herbicides, deer repellant, insect repellent, "dormant oil", fungicide, and so forth (not for use with cleaning or degreasing solvents).

The sprayer, with its curved-back shape and integral canvas harness, sits comfortably on your back, and holds up to 3-1/2 gallons. The side handle is pumped to create pressure, while your other hand directs the spray lance. The nozzle can be adjusted from a fine mist to a stream that will shoot 20 to 30 feet. Perfect for watering beyond the reach of a hose or for spraying your vegetables, fruit trees and flowers anywhere.

You can replace the standard Single brass tip with a Double or Triple delivery tip. Volume delivery will be correspondingly increased, although pressure (maximum distance reach) will decrease. (Additional air shipping charges apply.) Made In Italy.

Pretty Good
Reviewed By:   (New Ashford, MA) 
Nice sprayer, I thought to spend extra for the quality, some parts are plastic, the handle leaks a tiny bit, other than them sending me 2 by mistake it's a good buy, we use it for foliar feeding seaweed to fruit trees etc

But The Strap
Reviewed By:   (Manchester, CT) 
Instruction manual is printed in light red and very hard to read, which doesn't matter much since there is little useful information there. This doesn't matter much as it's easy to figure most of the assembly... That is except for the non-padded nylon strap. I had 6 people (2 engineers) trying to connect the straps so the device can be carried, but to no luck so far. If you can't get it on your back, you can't really use it. I guess we'll figure it out one day... It looks nice...

Great Sprayer
Reviewed By:   (Wichita Falls, Texas) 
Having used a Copper Backpack Sprayer some 46 years ago to treat Mesquite I now need one again. Searched online and ordered one from GarrettWade.com. New sprayer works so great,I need to order more. Tell me when they will be available.
Thanks,

Follow Up
Reviewed By:   (Memphis, TN) 
Couple of things I have come to understand about this sprayer. The write up does not tell you but you can change the sprayer from left hand pump to right hand pump. The instruction manual is just about useless but just as well because putting it together. The spray head is two piece and comes a part for easy cleaning with an O ring between the two. After cleaning screw the two back together until you can no longer see the O ring. Then to adjust the spay turn both parts of the spray head as if they were one. In the beginning just fill it with water and fool with it. It will all make sense.

This Sprayer Rocks
Reviewed By:   (Memphis, TN) 
I would not have bought this if Garret Wade did not sell it. I am not fond of things made in Italy but this sprayer totally rocks. It is well made and works better than I could have imagined. Looks even better than it works. From the spray head to the pump it is all quality. Still not going to buy a FIAT.
