    Ahhh cr@p, I dint know they changed. Mines the SP415... http://www.cairnsmowercity.com/prod233.htm
    Heres a rebadged 415 (Australian) http://www.poweruplawncare.com.au/bushranger/x15.html I have one of those too that I won from a dealer. Has the brass lance and an agitator inside the tank that works with the pump. Other than those 2 things, its the same as the Shin 415

    SP sprayers. The only backpack we've ever used. It's awesome.

    Both almost identical to the Jacto...
    I wish I could win something like that Bushranger. One of my dealers will almost give me a Chapin backpack if I buy a 2.5 gal jug of Ranger Pro :laugh: It kind of lets you know just what they're worth... I took the bait one day and that backpack literally lasted about a half day. Never again.

    I have one shindaiwa and two Jactos that have been working great for over 5 years. I don't know it anything has changed, but when I bought them the shindaiwa was simply a re-badged jacto. I went through several solos years ago, and they all ended up leaking down your back... no more for me. Jacto gets my vote....

    The solo's leak out of the lid because the tank lip isn't level. It you'll file down the notch to level, they won't leak.
