    SG20 is nice. I like the fact that you don't have to pressurize the tank after you take the lid off to refill. It has a chamber that keeps the pressure. Also only four pumps to reach full pressure

    Shurflo - And you don't have to pump it, which is more comfortable on your arm.

    just bought the stihl sg20 and put 16 gallons thru it.
    straps definately need to be more padded

    I like my Shurflo electric BUT NO 4 gal backpack is going to be comfortable for any length of time. Consistently carrying 35-40 lbs on your back gets old fast.
