    Was hoping for a little more than that. Is there anywhere on the net that I can find it?

    Stihl will not publish parts lists because you are supposed to go to the dealer for everything. I will buy Maruyama and Solo sprayers because parts lists and the actual parts themselves are available online.

    Stihl parts often are so expensive , has been my experience , that it is just a better investment to buy the whole new backpack sprayer. For example I have had two of their backpacks this season fall off the trailer or get banged up and need to replace a handle or trigger....the last time was the hose, handle and wand was something like $89 dollars ....the BP only cost $110 new....so it was not a hard decision to make to just replace the whole thing.

    The last SG20 I bought was 6 yrs ago. It lasted one season and the pump seals failed. I was disappointed with the cost of parts and the lack of availability so I stripped it down and converted the tank to a saddle tank for my Z spray. An electric pump and a few plumbing parts and I now have an independent sprayer with jet agitation for my ride-on. It sprays 1/4 gal per minute.
    I have been using Echo BP's since and have had zero issues. Even though my MS-50's have been discontinued by Echo, I am still able to view parts lists and purchase parts online.

    I understand mfg to dealer loyalty but not offering parts online is poor business for this day in age in my opinion.
