Advantages of an Electric Power Sprayer
1. Lower Cost – Electric sprayers are generally simpler, have fewer parts, and are much cheaper than gas-powered sprayers. Typically, the pump and motor are one unit, which is cheaper (compared to gas power) and requires no extra assembly, saving labor and assembly costs.
2. Less Space – Electric power sprayers usually take up less space. The electric pump and engine are usually slightly smaller than the engine and fuel pump assembly. Small footprint has many advantages:
- Ability to use a smaller vehicle. Smaller vehicles typically cost less to purchase and operate. - More space for other equipment and products. For pest control professionals practising IPM, this can be an especially valuable benefit.
3. Less Maintenance – Electric sprayers have fewer moving parts and often have simpler plumbing. This means fewer defects, fewer parts to keep in stock, and easier maintenance.
4. Greener Image – Because they do not use gasoline, the operator can claim to be a greener company that doesn't use gasoline engines.
5. Quieter – The electric motor makes almost no noise unlike a gas-powered sprayer which can be quite noisy. This can allow operators to operate earlier and later in the day without disturbing customers and neighbours.
