Anybody ever have the plastic wands break on your backpack sprayer? We shell out many plastic wands every year cuz they break, bend, and crack. Shurflo just released 'aluminum' wands that don't break. Cost = just five bucks at Sprayer Specialties. www.sprayers.com Five dollars is a steal....comes complete with threaded hook up & nozzel. Main reason for only five bucks: a large manufacturer renigged on their order. Sprayer Specialties took most of them. They ship world wide, and we have bought from them for decades. Damn good company. The wands are about 3 inches longer than most originals, yet they ain't plastic anymore. We use Shurflo SRS-600 battery-powered backpacks, and they fit right on with no prob. These new wands also fit many other manufacturers' units too. Oh yes, they are made in America. p.s. These wands are new, so you may not see them featured on the Sprayer Specialty website.
