The Chapin 62000 Tree&Turf Pro Backpack Sprayer is one of Chapin's top backpack pump sprayers. The sprayer is designed for professional landscapers as well as homeowners. One feature that sets this sprayer apart from some of the others we've looked at is the Control Flow Valve technology and pressure gauge on the handle. If you're trying to control your chemical application strictly, this might be the perfect sprayer for you.
Before we even start to praise or criticize another product we want to make one thing clear. All of these sprayers work! Some are better than others, in general, but what people as buyers should look at are the specific details.
Brands, in general, will always try to convince potential clients that their product is the best option for them. Trying to paint a picture where the product becomes an absolute necessity and not just a simple, handy tool. We like to think that most people know this, but we wish to make that clear. Because there are some people out there, who write to us complaining about some of the products we have “endorsed.” The problems they claim to have with their products most of the times though are based on how uncomfortable or unhappy they were with a particular product. What can we say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and we could sit here arguing on which is the best sprayer out there for days on end, and we would never come to a unanimous consensus? It all depends on which one best fits your body, needs, tastes, budget, etc.
Now that we are done venting let’s go to the next order of business. In this case, the next order of business is the Chapin 62000 4-Gallon Tree/Turf Pro Commercial.
Is it a pro or is it commercial? Can it be both? In our experience, a product’s performance is never affected by how it’s marketed. However, how it is sold does change how the product is perceived. If you build expectations too high in your marketing campaign and then the product can’t deliver the performance you are going to have a problem. This might be the case with this 4-gallon sprayer. It mostly contains all of the standard features that most of the Chapin backpack sprayers come with.
The Chapin 62000 backpack sprayer includes a three-step filtration system that is one of the best in the industry. This filtration prevents clogging and ensures you are spraying chemicals in the purest way possible. Filtering out possible dust particles or even plastics or things that could appear in the tank over time.
Also included with the Chapin 62000 sprayer are three nozzle types including a fan, cone, and adjustable brass. Other comparable backpack sprayers include the fourth nozzle.
One of the features that make it stand out from some of the other backpack sprayers from Chapin is the padded straps with lumbar support. A lot of these sprayers have been criticized for not being as comfortable for the users as they could be. Putting the straps more as a decorative add-on than an asset for heavy duty use.
There are people online calling the Chapin 62000 a "deluxe" version of a typical Chapin sprayer. This is probably due to the added back support and padded straps it includes. It also features an upgraded frame and wand, as well as the pressure gauge.
We agree that when it comes to comfort, this might be one of the best products in the Chapin line-up. We usually advocate for more comfort inducing add-ons in these sprayers. Especially when it comes to Chapin. So it is a definite plus that people are noticing about the Chapin 62000.
We liked the fact that when Chapin made the Chapin 62000 backpack sprayer, they were preoccupied with giving it better comfort features. Like we said this is rare for Chapin products. We can now say they finally listened! The 3 stage filtration makes all of the Chapin products a safer option. Especially when dealing with hazardous chemicals.
The Control Flow Valve technology along with the pressure gauge in the handle make this an excellent sprayer if you need to control your chemical application accurately. This may be the most compelling reason to buy the Chapin 62000 Tree&Turf Backpack Sprayer.
The Chapin 62000 backpack sprayer is a little expensive for a manual pump sprayer. The Control Flow Valve and pressure gauge are nice upgrades though and may make the price worth it for some. If you don't absolutely need that flow control, we recommend you look at the Field King Max 190348.
If you need precise flow control, you should consider the Chapin 62000 4-Gallon Tree/Turf Pro Commercial Backpack Sprayer.
I give it 3.5 stars!
It is an excellent all-around backpack sprayer. The Chapin 62000 sprayer features fantastic performance for a hand pump sprayer as well as excellent build quality and durability. The well-padded backpack straps really add to the comfort.
That said, we believe that if you do not need the extra flow control, it might be worth your time to check out the Field King Max 190348 Backpack Sprayer.
