    Solo's have bad designs IMO. You would think that on a heavy set up they would put some sort of handle to pick it up. None of their sprayers have handles far as I know.

    Unless that pump can put out 1.5 GPM at 40 PSI. I know the Maruyama electric backpacks are designed to run multiple nozzle set ups. Not sure if they could do 1.5 GPM, which is what I consider the minimum for a 3 nozzle boom.
