    just wondering what you guys are using for back pack sprayers, i have two of them, one is a lesco, and the other is a shindiawa. i have to say i prefer the design of the tank on the lesco over the shindiawa, but i prefer the nozzle that the shindiawa comes with better. so what are you guys using??????????

    I still really LOVE my Birchmier 10k (2.5 Gal). Light, Superdependable and the stock cone nozzle goes A LONG WAY when spot spraying!

    Easy to rebuild and maintain too....Never Leaks.

    I have the Stihl too. Its a solid unit. The only thing I absolutely HATE about it. The straps. The straps will not keep tension at all. I am going to tape it tight I guess.

    I'm starting to hate my lesco and schiindy after i got a stihl sg 20 this season. Same price as the schindawa but FAR more superior than both.

    I haven't had a problem with the straps. Original black Goodyear hose on mine is beginning to crack. Just need to replace with some clear threadweave hose. Other than that, I love it! Folds up nice. Packs away tight.
