Nineteen graden hose-end sprayers used for applying agricultural chemicals were evaluated for delivery rates, spray patterns, and total spray emitted per unit of time. Sprayers were evaluated at 137.88, 206.82, and 275.76 KPa (20, 30, and 40 psi) water pressures. Each sprayer type is discussed individually. Delivery rate variation of other sprayer types ranged from no application of pesticide to 105% above the desired rate. Sprayer delivery volumes ranged from 1.86 to 12.66 liters (0.49 to 3.34 U.S. gallons) per minute. Spray patterns are shown for each sprayer type. Hose-end sprayers are easy to use, economical, and in some cases have acceptable accuracy when used as directed. The sprayers tested include: Ortho Spray-ette 4; Ortho Super Six Spray-ette; Ortho Lawn Sprayer; Ortho Lawn and Garden Sprayer; New Hayes Insecticide Sprayer No. 101; Hayes Flower Sprayer No. H-4; Hayes Soil and Turf Sprayer No. H-10; Hayes Fertilizer Sprayer No. 102; Miller's Six Shooter Hose-end Sprayer; Miller's Big 15 Hose-end Sprayer; Burgess Redimix 6 Gallon Hose-end Plant, Shrub, and Tree Sprayer; Burgess 3 in 1 Redimix Hose-end All Purpose Sprayer; Big Andy 20 Gallon Fertilizer Sprayer No. A-21; Big Andy 6 Gallon Insecticide Sprayer No. A-7; Gilmour Air-O-Matic 362 Sprayer; Melnor Deluxe All-Purpose Garden Gun; Vigoro Lawn-Weed-N-Feed Sprayer; and the Burgess Redimix 2 Gallon Hose-end Wettable Powder Sprayer.
