From backpack, UTV to tow-behind spot sprayers, there are an endless variety of sprayers available to you. Used to efficiently spray liquids such as water, herbicides, pesticides and fertilisers, these sprayers have become an essential tool in agriculture for weed control, animal or tree-watering, unit washdown and even spot fire control.

Despite the diversity of these products, all sprayers share principal components that help spray the liquid fast and evenly. Key elements include the spray nozzle, liquid tank, sprayer pump and pressure regulator. However, due to the variety of conditions that require a sprayer, the assortment of products is distinct, with each model suited to a particular task.

For the home gardeners and the professional garden maintenance contractors, our Backpack & hand pump Sprayer range offers small hand-held sprayers to medium sized knapsack sprayers.



A tow-behind sprayer is as the name suggests – a sprayer which has been mounted to a trailer and is towed behind a moving vehicle such as site-down lawn mower or a quad bike. Tow-behind sprayers can be used in multiple ways; as a spot sprayer or as a boom sprayer which helps with the larger dispersion of fertilizer or herbicides over a greater area. This type of sprayer is perfect for large lawns or garden spaces.

Our range of tow-behind sprayers includes the RapidLine, RapidMix, Spot Ranger and FarmMax series.

Handled in public and high traffic areas, this disinfectant sprayers are utilitised to reduce the risk of virus and/or bacteria spread. Disinfectant sprayers are typically used by contractors or councils and are ideal for cleaning spaces such as

  • shopping centres
