Growing a vegetable garden is a rewarding experience. Planting rows of luscious lettuce, tomatoes, and herbs pay off at harvest time, giving you fresh fruits and vegetables for your family\u2019s dinner table. Unfortunately, gardeners will experience the threat of pests and disease to their crops, and they need a solution to manage the risk of these threats. Fortunately, you can control the types of pesticides and fungicides you use on your plants with the Chapin 63985 4-Gallon Backpack Sprayer we can recommend even if it didn\u2019t make our Best Backpack Sprayer\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Chapin 63985 4-Gallon Backpack Sprayer\r\nWhen it comes to backpack sprayers everyone likes something simple and with comfortable shoulder straps, hardworking and reliable. This is arguably all of those things. The hand pump and ease of use to perform your own pest control or watering your hard to reach plants makes Chapin 63985 4-Gallon Backpack Sprayer ideal.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nWith three different settings spray stream can mist spray or come out as a solid stream, the last reaching up to 20 feet away with a horizontal spray stream and 27 vertical spray stream all thanks to the Black Decker Volt lithium ion battery powered motor. With one flaw it seems that over time the pipes running to and from the motor come loose over time requiring the fastenings to be tightened at the start of every season and before initial use for safety.\r\nDesign\r\nThe four gallon tank is accessible by a wide mouth with a filter to keep out any dust or dirt, the lid with it\u2019s viton seals and six inch wide mouth also acts as a carry handle if you don\u2019t like the padded straps. With three filters to make cleaning easy and prevent impurities from damaging the brass tip, speaking of the tip also gives three different sprays for different uses making the Chapin 63985 4-Gallon Backpack Sprayer highly versatile. It has a wider mouth then the Chapin 61900 4 Gallon Commercial Stainless though more costly then the Professional 190328 Backpack Sprayer Killing or the Chapin International 61500 ProSeries Translucent.\r\nValue\r\nWith the rechargeable volt lithium ion battery and reliable components with a little maintenance to the piping this is a safe investment for both the home gardener and someone needing to spray chemicals for pest control. Due to the many options available I would say it\u2019s worth the 186.19 asking price.\r\nChapin 63985 4-Gallon Backpack Sprayer Wrap Up\r\nOnce aware of the problem with the fastenings we found it a simple to use and reliable option for pest control and watering plants making both tasks easier then using a manual pump or watering can. The higher quality tip and the multiple filters make up for the little bit of work required to get started.
