    Dad used Solo for years but this last time he bought a Shindaiwa 415 I think it was. I need the pump on the right hand side whatever it is.

    I don't think you can go wrong with the Solo models, also the knock-offs that are basically Solo's but sold under a different name... At least they can be pumped from either side. I've not tried others, since my trailer rack only works for the Solo style.

    I bought two Shurflo battery powered backpack sprayers last spring. Other than replacing the wands they have been great. I plan on buying one or two more this spring.

    Solo/Lesco backpacks are nice and easy to rebuild, but when your'e ready to buy one to keep you can't go wrong with Birchmeir.

    I'm thinking of purchasing one of the Fastpac units. Those that have been using them for a while, do you still like it as much as when you first got it? It really does look like a great product to cover those smaller yards. I'm a little concerned about reliability though.
