they still have them, not sure if every store has them. everytime i go there i see lots of them for sale.. my dumba$$ thought it was some special sale the first time i saw them priced that low (because i to only saw them for 90 bucks) so i bought a bunch of them.. they are just cheaper backpack sprayers. they work fine though! and still a pretty good buy for your situation.

I think HD was just phasing out the rest of their inventory of their old model Solo's for $39.00. They intro'd new Solo's that are pretty much just the same except with new logo design early this spring at the full $89.00 or whatever price. I got lucky and picked up a cheap one too when I saw them.

just go ahead and buy a good one like a stihl sg20. it's a little over $100 but you'll never have any issues out of it.
