What backpack sprayer?

What backpack sprayers do you prefer? I've tried two Stihl SG20's and I think they must just be junk, between dry rotted hoses, split tanks, and pumps not working.

Thanks,
Adrian

Go by one from John Deere Landscapes. There is one in Villa Rica.

They have several different types. Chris can help you out.

My go to back pack has always been Solo. I like the ones with the adjustable pressure dial inside.

Solo is regarded as the best. Plus they're made in the USA. What more can you ask for?

I use the Shurflo Electric. Like it, no hand pumping.
Tip: Buy a higher capacity battery and install it, keep the factory one for a backup.

I use the sthil SG20 with no real problem I did replace 1 tank but I learned that the vent was not working and that was the problem never had a hose crack you have to oil the pump or they will stop working. I looked at a couple battery one's but the weight was as much empty as mine does with 3 gals of water.

solos were great 20 years ago, i have been trying a new backpack everytime i need one. I picked up a smth @ lowes a couple weeks ago, so far so good. I think the shindaiwa is the best bang for the buck!
