sprayer or atomizer ???

My trees are growing in and I expect that next season I will need a more robust applicator for fungicides or insecticides.

Any suggestions pro-con re: Atomizer vs. Sprayer for this job.

Thanx, Mike

I use gas powered pressure to spray my garden its mount (or setting back Kawasaki Mule) use 12v 25 gallon to feed water to pressure washer I can spray full size peach tree 2 to 3 seconds 10 foot from foliage of tree. This blow moths out tree and cover insecticide some leave tree as coming up to next one I get them in mid air as drive along in trees. To spray this up stream from air movement important. It lightly wet both side foliage I use wide tip in pressure washer gun on short trees for distance I use lesser flat fan tip and garden because spray across about 8 44" inch rows at time early morning are late after noon spraying. I choose pressure washer over high pressure sprayer 400 psi because pressure can be use for other washings lol.

Nice idea but won't work for me. My trees are espaliered in rows and the rows are 7-8 feet apart. I am too close to the tree to be able to use the pressure washer. But you gave me an idea. I have one of those airless paint sprayers that I can try to hook the feed tube to a 5-10 water bottle. OK... that is another project to contemplate over winter.
