What rate do I mix Roundup concentrate in my Sideswipe? Manufacturer recommends mixing Roundup concentrate at a 1:4 - 1:6 (1 part Roundup concentrate to 4-6 parts water) ratio for greatest effectiveness, depending on the type of plant. How do I keep my Sideswipe from dripping in between uses? Carry the Sideswipe with the pad elevated above the handle to help prevent over-wetting the pad. A shut off valve (such as our 55so) can be added between the handle and the elbow to prevent dripping during storage or while carrying from one area to another. The elbow has hose threads for this purpose.
Overall Rating: 1/5
This thing leaks like a sieve, even with an added shut-off. Bought a rope type-much better, no leaking and better coverage. Need to go back to the drawing board on this one.
