Also curious if anybody out there uses a misting sprayer / blower (akin to the set up linked below) for Michael's holistic spray mix, straight neem oil, or other 'thick' sprays. While the mister seems it might get better coverage in theory, I wonder how much of the spray mix it actually is able to pick up (assuming it was well emulsified).

Thanks.

We have a Stihl 450, and it does very well with anything I've put through it, including surround, sulfur, neem oil, compost tea and synthetic fungicides. It will happily spray many things our 3pt airblast won't, and has (thus far) proven to be a great and reliable machine.
The downside is that it has a very high center of gravity, with the tank at shoulder level, and is quite heavy. Walking while wearing it takes some getting used to.

I'm choosing to interpret your comment to mean that your Stihl gives an amazing strength training workout. Sounds good. winking smiley
