We had terrible luck with Solo backpacks filled with glyphosate.  The stuff would turn to "snot" in the bottom of the tank.  Then you had to get the pressure tank out from inside the main tank to unclog.  We had brand-new sprayers failing the day of purchase.

But....our tap water is quite "hard", i.e. full of minerals and relatively high pH, so that seems to have been a factor.

Get a Stihl GP-20 backpack and you'll never look back.  Don't clog, pressure tank is external (smart), and all in all, a much better tool.

Battery power ain't no thing;  A few pumps on the handle as you're spraying or walking is simply not a problem.

Me?  I've probably sprayed thousands of gallons of glyph. thru backpacks by now.  Maybe tens or even hundreds of thousands.  But I forgot to keep track lol!
Far as I can tell, it's 6 of one, half a dozen of the other...

I bet your efficacy was a bit off too.  Glyphosate (and many forestry use chemicals) is fairly sensitive to pH.  The active gets bound up in the minerals and sediment.  I have carried around a test kit to check batch water.  It is one of the major reasons for chemical failures.

Ah, we're old hands at this stuff.  I must have read of that-pH effects on spray solution in what, 1980?

Never had the stuff not work.  

BTW, if anyone wants to do cut-stump or basal-bark work on any type of maple-in my case it would only ever be box elders, the junk maple-don't bother with glyphosate.  It won't work.  May as well just reach for the old standby-triclopyr, AKA Garlon.

I had one tank turn to snot (technical term) but I blamed the surfactant. My only gripe with the SOLO products is the harness leaves much to be desired.

Yeah......My wife says she wants to follow the same route.  She's eying Pop's greenhouse.  I'll set up the nacho stand and donut shop next door.  I would fry some bacon, but can't afford that right now.  The idiots that wrote this Virginia law could have used a little help.  This thing is going to be a cluster*.  It is legal to possess up to 1 ounce.  A "household" can grow up to 4 plants "legally".  Possession between " 1 ounce and a pound" carries a $25 civil penalty.  Possession over 1 pound is still a felony..........guess those 4 plants can't produce much.  And they are still trying to put the tobacco producers out of business. :-\ :-\

Ya it is grey, But ive read it and know it like the back of my hand, the 1 oz thing is on your PERSON, so if you leave your primary residence, you can ONLY carry up to 1 oz, (They think your selling, and if you can smoke an entire 1 oz in one setting god have mercy on your soul haha).


Now whats NOT written, and is just... Accepted. There is no print on how much you can have at your house, the primary resident, cause its like you say, no one can tell how much its gonna produce.. well I can.. after 13 years experience lol lol.
You can have as much as you want at home, I can have 5 lbs if I want, if my 4 plants produce 1.25 lbs a piece dried. I just cant LEAVE my house with more then an oz. the license process hasnt started, CCA just got created and their still hiring people. Cause Im filling out my license application as soon as its available and build my green houses and schedule them off as Class A facilitys. (Can grow more then 1% thc then)

I'm finishing up a backpack job this week.  You are about as late as you want to go, but it is still doable.
