I've been looking for a better way to apply pre-spray other than my backpack sprayer. I'd really like something with some better pressure. I like the look of the penguin emporior 300 but it is 659 dollars and that seems a lil high for what it is. I've searched and searched for other sprayers, but none seem to exist. I ran across this on northern tool. Does anybody have any experience with this sprayer

It seems like something like that would add more work for you. Being a 16 gallon capacity, you'd have to run hose from it to where you are cleaning. I'd just go to an inline sprayer. I guess there are also battery powered sprayers that are like 2 gallon capacity that have a cart to make it easier to wheel around.

Yeah I'm not a fan of an inline sprayer myself. I felt that the consistently wasn't their. I think your right it might be a lil different to pack that thing around. But it had a lot of good things about it I liked. If it were only a little smaller.

When someone talks about the consistency of the inline sprayer I just tilt my head to one side and say "huh." What they lack in consistency (which is about 5% variation) they make it up in ease of use many times over. Nothing else stores more easily in the van. Nothing else can take the heat of heated prespray.
