Large garden sites and household farms need to be the most modern watering technology. One of the most successful solutions was not so long ago a rechargeable sprayer.
To begin with, we will get acquainted with rechargeable sprinklers and their destination. So, the sprayer allows you to organize landing care quickly, simply and delicately, since the working mechanism supports stable pressure due to the electric pump. Thus, the gardener is not needed to perform pumping manually, as it happens when working with manual units.
The peculiarity of the professional rechargeable sprayer is also considered that It can be used to apply complex fertilizers and fungicidal solutions on plants – while the surface of the leaves and stalks is covered with a thin film, which allows to significantly save the consumption of drugs. In addition to the care of plants, such a sprayer is often used for anti-epidemic processing of cattle, the device is also often used for car wash, whitewash facades, inland walls and ceilings, cleaning vertical surfaces from dust and pollution.
The bulk of this unit falls on the area of the shoulder container, Therefore, it is additionally equipped with ergonomic handles and belts, the user can easily move it even on the fighter distances. The tank of the tank is different, in most cases it varies from 5 to 20 liters. In addition, such devices additionally complete the telescopic board, the length of which over 1 meter. Thanks to this mechanism, you can easily handle low-spirited trees and shrubs.
Together with sprayers themselves, manufacturers sell special nozzles, which can provide several types of spraying:
- in the form of a wet cloud;
The principle of operation of such aggregates is rather simple – with the help of an electric pump in the tank, an increased pressure of water or other fluid is formed, the device independently turns on when it is necessary to increase the pressure, and turns off if the pressure level reached its maximum. As a rule, these models are equipped with a battery of a non-maintained type, which has a fairly long period of use – in most cases one charging cycle is sufficient for good work for 6-7 hours. For this period of time, the sprayer sprays about 500 liters of liquid composition.
Energy consumption of such a garden sprayer – 300 W per hour. When using a device with minor breaks, its period of operation increases to final discharge. We pay special attention to the fact that charging the battery is performed only by connecting to 220V electrical current network. Most of the models are equipped with a filtration system, as a result of which water passes three-step cleaning and gets rid of mechanical impurities and salts of heavy metals.
Advantages and disadvantages
When buying a garden sprayer in front of the homeowner, there is a choice between the rechargeable and gasoline unit. Each has its pros and cons, however, the device with an internal combustion engine is more appropriate in the car garage than in the garden. Let us dwell on the advantages of each of these products. By efficiency, the gasoline sprayer wins significantly, because thanks to the air pump, it can drive a rather powerful air flow through the pipe. At the exit to it, splashes of water or a solution of a specialized drug fall, and the air is spread to distant distance. Usually in winter, such an assembly is used to blow snow.
Rechargeable sprayers work a little different – They have a sophisticated hose and an elongated tube, with a small diameter, due to this, the liquid is ejected by a narrowed cone, although the degree of spraying is quite significant. Nevertheless, it is impossible to blow up a similar pressure, so in winter the electric mechanism will stand idle. But he has a different advantage – most of the modifications presented on sale are equipped with a telescopic barbell, which plays the role of the feed tube, there are no gasoline devices.
It should not be overlooked that if you wear a sprayer of a wound type, then in the case of a gasoline device you will wear not only water reservoir, but also a benzobak – many are not solved for such measures from a sense of own security.
Another advantage of the rechargeable sprayer is the cost. If the prices for electrical models range from 3 to 7 thousand, the cost of gasoline begins from 15. Thus, the purchase of a device with an integrated internal combustion engine is justified only in a situation if you are forced to regularly process several hectares of land. If you have a small household economy, then you should give preference to battery mechanisms. Summarizing, you can designate the following advantages of battery installations.
- Small sizes, low weight, compactness and ergonomics.
- Battery based sprayer does not require the presence of a permanent power supply, and can work in places where electricity has not been carried out.
- The sprayer has quite high power, so that it is possible to process large areas in one occasion.
- Rechargeable installations meet all environmental and sanitary safety requirements.
- The mechanism has a wide sphere of use, ranging from watering and insect-insect combating and ending with repair work and disinfection of premises.
- A large number of different nozzles in the kit causes work in several options.
- Operation does not require special physical efforts and specialized skills.
- During operation, such sprayers do not consume oils and gasoline that are quite expensive. Moreover, the device does not highlight carbon monoxide, so it is often used in greenhouses.
- The cost of battery installations is an order lower than gasoline.
However, do not forget about the minuses, these include the following points.
- The degree of autonomy of the installation directly depends on the battery pack parameters. As soon as the charge ends, the mechanism ceases to function.
- The cost of rechargeable models is much higher than the price of manual products.
Depending on the type of movement of devices, They are divided into three types:
Hand sprinklers during the work held in the hands, the knapsack, like a backpack, put on the back, well, and the wheeled, as a rule, are fixed on the trolley. Manual sprayers are suitable for home winter flower beds when the relatively small number of colors should be processed. Sprayers on wheels are optimal in cases where you need to pour or handle fertilizers large areas in several dozen acres. For cottages and gardens of medium-sized, the wound mechanism will be optimal – its volume is enough for watering, and at the same time a person does not get tired, and the back during the work is in a convenient posture.
Batteries can have different types of batteries – the best are counted country options with a lithium battery.

How to choose?
When buying a sprinkler follows Take into account several key factors:
- Square gardening area;
- landscape features;
- The planned regularity of the use of the sprayer;
- need for additional features.
Be sure to calculate the amount of water that you need for processing and watering plants. On average, one tree is needed about 0.5 liters of liquid, so if you are the owner of a botanical garden or a large greenhouse, the aggregates with a small size of the tank are meaningless. Do not forget to take into account the physical features of a person who will work with sprayer. If you have a device with a 15-liter tank, then wearing it in the garden plot will only be strong a strong healthy man.
In order to choose a sprayer, you should carefully examine the instructions for its operation and get acquainted with all the technical characteristics. For example, if you have many high trees in the garden, then you should give preference to installations with a point spraying and jet limiter. If you plan to water the larger plants for the most part, you can stay on a cheaper and simple model.
It is very important to pay the maximum attention to the security of the sprayer – The body of the tool must be resistant to mechanical deformations, wear and pesticides. Ensure the presence of a trigger when using fungicidal and insecticidal solutions. Reliability of parts is one of the key characteristics affecting the choice of a particular model. When choosing a device, be sure to inspect it yourself, check the quality of all connecting seams and the strength of its components.
Immediately refuse the idea of buying sprinklers who have a metal tank, it is also not worth buying models, the volume of the tank is less than 8 liters – in this case you will have to constantly take breaks to pour into the container a new portion of water. If you buy a Range model, be sure to try it and appreciate the convenience of the belts and the length of the handle, you should be comfortable to work with such equipment on the back. Any technique sooner or later fails, so give preference to domestic brands – you can always easily purchase any detail for replacement. If you have an imported sprayer, then the likelihood you will have to be ordered from abroad and repair will delay for quite a long time.
Pay attention to the presence of a different kind of additional options for automatically turning on and off the pump, as well as the complete set of additional nozzles.
