Revolver 9-Pattern Spray Gun
This excellent hose-end trigger sprayer comes from the people who invented the water breaker. That same Dramm technology changed the way we water. (Remember when you discovered there was a screw-on device that changed a water blast into a gentle stream for watering plants?) There have always been a variety of nozzles that would mist, or even blast the dirt off the patio by turning a dial. Unfortunately for those of us who like the convenience of a multipurpose tool, most of those were of poor quality. The Dramm revolver features a die-cast metal valve, reinforced fiberglass lever, and a comfortable, ergonomic grip. Available in red, orange, purple, and yellow, it won't get lost in the hedge, either.
