    For whoever has a SG20, if you do not mind would let me know how you like it? I am thinking about buying one.

    Love it on all accounts. It's comfortable to wear, holds four gallons and builds up some insane pressure.

    I've never had any trouble out of mine works great and does not leak like others
     
  4. IMO all the major brands are good products. I own 2 redmax that have been great. I've used echo which are good and I've heard people say shindys are great.

    Well you answered my question I ask you in the other forum. Also because I ask I guess I should have looked at your signature. ha

    I just bought one last week, $129.95, I am using it for round-up spraying. I like the set-up and the heavyduty construction, however the seals around the tube and the plunger on the handle are leaking, I tried tightening and this did not work, am taking this section back to he dealer today to get his idea of were to go.

    You just bought it last week? I would take the whole thing back and get a replacement.:usflag:

    i own 3 of them. i prefer the stihls over any brand.

    however, i just bought an Earthway S25 walk behind sprayer. This thing is really cool. It holds 6 gallons of liquid. You push it just like a spreader and it sprays up to 5ft wide.

    it has cut my spraying time down by 15 minutes at least. especially when trying to kill weeds in an entire lawn
