Performance

If you’ve had enough experience using backpack sprayers, then you know that sometimes you just want to spray a little differently for different reasons, and this is why the Roundup 190314 comes with up to 3 nozzles for you to choose from. There’s the poly adjustable nozzle for switching between a solid stream and fine mist, the high volume fan for a broader coverage of large areas, and the low volume fan for confined areas. The 4 gallon sprayer also has a large piston pump that pressurizes in a lot less pumps compared to the Chapin 61900 4 Gallon Commercial Stainless, and it also features Viton seals for increased resistance from chemicals. Spray pressure is at a decent 90 PSI, and while this might not compare with the best backpack sprayers in the market, it’s still strong enough to get the job done.

Design

Aside from having padded shoulder straps for easier carrying, the Roundup 190314 backpack sprayer also comes fitted with built-in lumbar support to reduce the strain on your back, making it slightly more comfortable to use compared to the Field King Professional 190328 Backpack Sprayer Killing. This Roundup backpack sprayer also comes with a heavy duty poly wand that’s 21 inches long, and a lock on feature that allows for continuous spraying. It’s 4-inch wide mouth opening allows for very easy filling, and its removable in-line filter helps prevent clogging.

Value

This, and its padded shoulder straps help make your work a lot more easier. Also worthy of mention is the 5 year warranty that the Roundup sprayer is backed with. In case of any issues with your purchase, make sure you contact customer service as soon as your sprayer arrives and they’ll be more than happy to help.
