Yes you can--use an airless sprayer (paint pump)--

Be careful of cars--sidewalks--any thing close----stain will drift in the air for quit a distance--
Pick a windless day.

You can also use a low pressure sprayer (Hudson-type garden sprayer). It is less prone to overspray than an airless. It will also provide better transfer efficiency. Once the spray is applied, you can brush or roll to even it out.

It can be done. Me personally, if I was gonna spray stain I would use an HVLP or a Cup Gun. Airless is dangerous with over spray. I wouldn't use a garden sprayer as commented above that is a disaster waiting to happen.

What kind of stain? Oil? Waterbase? Solid? Semi-solid? Translucent? Semi-translucent? What brand? Depending on the answer to these questions it may or may not be efficent to spray the stain.

You will have no problem spraying SW solid woods capes stain with an airless sprayer. I would suggest you use a 415 tip. It will give you an 8 inch wide fan and a little bit better control with less over spray than a tip with a larger orifice.

I would back brush the first coat and just spray the second. You could even use a roller and back roll it sideways instead of up and dowm

I would recommend spraying it, and then brushing it to fill it in.
