At one time, I used a Gilmour product to spray herbicide or fertilizer on
the lawn. It was a bottle with spray nozzle that attached to the hose. I
primarily used it for herbicide for broad-leaf weeds and used it selectively
in limited areas of the lawn. The plastic bottle could hold liquid product,
and a dial on the sprayer head was rotated to select the correct amount to
be dispensed. The herbicide or fertilizer would be mixed with water when
the faucet was turned on and the handle of the sprayer was depressed.
This worked very well, but I have not been able to find one for a long time.
It was made by Gilmour, but I don't see the item on their web site (and
email bounced back). Does anyone know if the item can still be found, or
possibly a similar product? It was much easier on my back than using a
Thanks for the link. That looks similar, although it does not "look" like
as good a product (but looks can be deceiving). However, that is the
closest I have seen to what I want. If no one here can direct me to Gilmour
or a look-a-like, I will try this one. Thanks, again!
Thanks. This looks like the set to get. This one even comes from the
Gilmour group, but (as with a previous message) does not look at good as in
the past -- the dial looks like basic plastic instead of the nicer dial they
once had. Still, it will *not* get frequent use. And, yes, I do need two.
I always keep herbicides separate from other applications and *never* mix
the two, not even after thorough cleaning.
I just bought one today at my local seed and supply company. It has the
brass parts and here is a link to it on the Gilmour website:
Fantastic! The one on the left (model #362) is what I was looking for --
with brass parts, as you said. I had just about given up hope that it was
still made. I had gone to what I thought was Gilmour's home page, but the
email link bounced. The site you gave even has a "partners" link, so maybe
I will have success this time.
