The twin wheel pumps spray a fan of solution 6 feet wide at the rate of 1 gallon per 1,000 square feet. It is equipped with large, easy-to-push rubber tires and a heavy-gauge steel frame for the 6-gallon tank. The pumping system and the 6-gallon tank are constructed of corrosion- resistant materials. The spray pattern is delivered from two nozzles in the form of tiny droplets providing a steady, uniform application, which greatly reduces costly chemical drifting. Shutoff controls located on the handle grips allow operators to use the nozzles independently.
