tow behind spreader
Hey everyone, this is the story on Sears tow behind spreader, 15 gallons. I wanted to spray a weed killer on my lawn and I chosed the above spreader, yes, it did a great job especially the boom that covers about 8' across but the hard to get spots was easy also using the wand tha gets the corner or around areas you need to protect, but, I then used it to spray my trees and then some bushes and the reson I could is it cleans up so well you can use a weed killer clean it then use another product with the knowledge it wont kill othe r things. Remember clean it well. thanks Sears Stan

Tank Failure on my Craftsman Tow-Behind Sprayer:
I'm having a problem with my 15 gallon Tank Failing. I use my sprayer to control weeds around my large yard. You will notice the tank attaches with 4 bolts. The nuts are permanently secured into the bottom of the plastic tank, over time the nuts leak and your chemicals drip out. (Killing my lawn!) I bought a second tank, and installed the bolts loosely, with a dab of silicone to glue/secure the tank into position. The Tank Failed again after one season!!! I'm now on my third tank. To fix this problem, Sears needs to use straps that secure the tank to the frame. I'm 100% certain your tank will FAIL!!! Do Not Buy This Sprayer From Sears Until They Change There Mounting Supports.

Gets the Job done

I bought this sprayer to work in my 3 acre lawn. Came in a box much smaller than I expected, had to put together some but not all of the sprayer. Only difficult part was the wheels and axle, they used those axle caps you pound on with a hammer instead of a pin. So you will not be taking the wheels off for storage unless you drill the axle and put a clip or pin in it. Sprayer and motor work well, after some adjustment got the spray pattern and spray arms where I wanted and everything seems to be working fine.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good for covering a lot of territory

I confess I am lazy. And I have Horse Property that generates a lot of bugs. The biggey being Ticks. They need to be sprayed often. This Tow behind Sprayer is perfect. One has to keep in mind it sprays at a reasonable level. Patience is and will be your best virtue when using this.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Broken tank

When I unpacked this sprayer from the box, it was already bolted to the frame and there was a piece of paper stating it was checked for leaks, but when I put water in it to test it it leaked out the bottom right corner. Very disappointing. I'm going to make my own tank that will be much better than this. As for the rest of the item, I like the frame, sprayers, pump etc.. Wish they would find some other source for a tank.

Craftsman Tow-Behind Sprayer

Bought this in 2009. After using about a dozen times, the valve that switches between the tank and hand wand quit working and only the wand could be used. When I called Sears about a new valve, found out sprayer parts are not stocked in the local warehouses. To order it would cost $11.99 for the valve and $7.99 shipping. (It used to be when the warehouse didn't have a part, they would order it and the customer didn't have to pay shipping. Sometimes the shipping is more than the part!) Went to the local hardware store and bought ball-cock valve for $7.99 and it works great. The wand handle has a split in it that sprays out about as much as at the end of the wand. At $36.25 + shipping to replace it, I'll figure out another way to fix it. Have also had problems with the plastic clamps that don't stay tight and have to be replaced and the wand hose kinks really easily.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Tank Problems

I have the same problem as some others. Used it once or twice, emptied it, put it in the shed. Took it out the other day and the **** tank is cracked. Fortunately I was smart enough to fill it with water first to check instead of mixing the weed killer in first.

Ordered a new tank and I am going to take a look at a different mounting scheme.

15 gallon tow behind sprayer

Got the sprayer put together yesterday and used it today. Had to get it because my Creeping Charley was starting to get ahead of me. I am to old to carry around a pump up sprayer. The only thing I didn't like about it was the only switch was on the pump. The manual says to reach back and turn on the pump. Heck, I would have to have an arm six feet long. So, I shortened up the wires between the sprayer and mower and added an on/off switch in the line so it would be by the tractors speed control.Works great. Otherwise it is handy piece of equipment. I like the spraying wand and the width that the unit sprays.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

BETTER THAN OLDER REVIEWS But Has Some Issues

Older reviews sight problems with leaks attaching the tank to the frame. Sears seems to have addressed that. Mine arrived already well attached to the frame in the box. There are no leaks or problem so far after one use. Overall, I had little difficulty pulling the sprayer with my lawn tractor to apply chemicals to a 3/4 acre yard. But THERE ARE ISSUES THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESSED FOR THE SPRAYER TO WORK WELL: BAD PLASTIC HOSE CLAMP Part R plastic Hose Clamp 3/8" is too large. The spray boom hose cannot tighten onto the on-off valve using this clamp. It will not tighten down tight enough. Plan to secure a 3/8" hose clamp at an auto supply store instead. POOR BOOM SPRAY CONTROL Controlling the spray booms via the on-off switch on the pump and/or the on-off valve mounted next to the pump is a VERY BAD DESIGN. You cannot ride on a lawn tractor and reach back to these controls from the seat. What is needed is an in-line switch on the wiring harness between the battery harness and the long pump harness. Also the battery harness is TOO SHORT. It would not reach from the battery terminals on my small John Deere lawn tractor back out to where the quick couplers are accessible to the operator. I solved the problems by soldering extensions into the battery harness, including a heavy duty in-line lamp switch in the red(+) lead. A better solution would be for Sears to offer a short optional connecting harness between the battery harness and the pump harness, that would include a switch for use by the operator when seated on whatever is pulling the sprayer. SPRAY GUN FALLS OFF The clips that are supposed to hold the spray gun and wand on the side of the tank are poorly made. Any little bump whatsoever causes the spray gun to fall off. Bending the clamps will help a little but will not solve the problem completely. TANK NOT REALLY 15 GALLON The tank holds 14 gallons with less than 1 inch of remaining space. One can only assume that 15 gallons is an exaggeration based on every hose and part being pumped full of liquid. Plan your use of lawn chemicals based on a 14 gallon tank fulls.

another tank failure

Against my better judgement, I just ordered another 15 gal. tank after being unable to stop the cracking and leaks around the tank to frame mounts. I've tried epoxy inside and out to no avail, and other patchwork remedies. This unit is functional when new, but not of the quality that one used to expect from the Craftsman name brand. I believe that the new tank, if it's the same as the old one, probably won't last a year of usage w/o leaking.
