Do any of you have and use one one of these Stihl Leaf Blowers/sprayers?
I want to try it on my peach trees. From what reviews I've read it should work great.
It says you can even use it to sprea granulars.

I have been using a blower like that for many years for spraying trees to control aphids, works very well only thing you need to master is getting the application rate correct as can be a bit hit and miss

I have used them, more Solo ones in my area. They can work very well. As the other guy said they can be hard to calibrate and not precise on application. They can be a workout for the operator. Better if you are about 21 and a rugged man! Some people mounted them on atv etc. If you have a lot to do you will want a tractor sprayer instead. There are many used ones around and ebay used to be loaded (there are several brands of them).

I have used a Solo for many years. Had a good dealer in this area. Used for mosquito control with my John Bean Mist Blower. I am 77 and still using one.
