I love it...quality cut! The front tires have been a pain though. They are small...and the bead seal had to be patched up, but everything else is great. Here is a picture of a lawn i cut today with it....

Is the Echo MS-100 a better choice? Whats the price on an Echo?

I like mine. You can fill the tank without loosing pressure. It looks to be very simple and easy to work on if ever you needed to and of course Stihl parts and customer service are great. The top has a filter to keep grass and debris out. Not sure how it compares to Solo or one of the other brands but it serves my purpose well and has several attachment heads.

I like the ones that have the pump handle that you can stand up vertically, it takes less room in the truck. The four gallon Echo is a pretty good choice but the 5 gallon has better straps with pads, but the handle doesn't go up on the 5 gallon on the old models.

WJW- I have the Everride Hornet 48" also. I am having the same front tire problem. What was your solution?

I have and like this sprayer. The only problem I've had is with the vent cap on the lid but that was quickly replaced by Stihl. Much better and more durable than Lesco/Solo sprayers IMO. I'm going to look into the sprayer attachments.

I love mine ! However, I have pinched the tar out of my finger on more than one occasion when lifting it out of the truck from the handle as the pump shaft spring upwards. OUCH !
