    I have a stihl sg20 I like it, except the straps suck.

    Got a SOLO that we have had over 15 years. Gone through a tip or two as well as a handle. Tank remains in great shape, as does the seal. Worth the money.

    Wish someone would had posted earlier, I took the chance already and ordered the Solo 475 model.

    Thinking the more expensive one might be more bang for the buck :confused:
