I've never used one of the 3 gallon hand sprayers, so I can't compare;
but I do use a Solo 3 gallon backpack sprayer. It's easy to pump; pump
it up some to start, then just pump occasionally with one hand while
continuing to spray with the other. They also make battery-powered
electric versions that you don't have to pump at all.
I strongly agree with the recommendation to get one with a hip belt. As
long as you have the hip belt, they're pretty comfortable to wear.
