Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty Very well made
I have owned several sprayers and have found this Echo to be well made and reasonably priced. The wand functions flawlessly. I have a sprayer for every chemical I use so I don't have to keep washing them out especially when I go from weed killer to bug killer. The large numbers on the side showing you how much water to put in so you can accurately mix your chemicals is great. It also carries a lifetime warranty so this maybe the last one you ever buy if returned to have it repaired instead of just throwing it away.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Faisal Perfect in its class
It ships fully assembled; you have to screw the wand on it which requires no tools. I am using it for small size spraying tasks. Even though it can hold up to 3 gallons but it also adds fatigue to walk around with 3 gallons of weight if spraying large area.
The pump fills up the pressure really fast and the wand has decent throw. My hands always thank the added convenience of trigger lock. Included three additional adapters are very handy especially when I have to target specific points in tight areas.
User Manual clearly illustrates how to replace them.
When I am done using it, the pressure release valve helps me make it ready for storage in shortest time. Its slim design does not occupy much space in my garage. It’s perfect in its class and I recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DennisJ Best I've Had
This is the best sprayer I've had, and there is a difference.
It has a reinforced heavy hose that is built to last. It has the most comfortable handle that I have used. It has a rubber grip and a trigger lock, so you can lock the spray on, instead of squeezing. It also has a feature that works like a safety, that will prevent you from accidentally squeeze the handle when in place.
It has a large capacity pump, with a very comfortable handle, whether you're pumping or carrying. The high capacity pump saves a lot of time. Theses a relief valve on top to safely release pressure, if needed. The wand is fiberglass, so it keeps its shape and comes with four nozzles, so you can customize the spray to suit your needs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by timtsb Great sprayer - very strong/sturdy construction.
Just as expected, Echo has produced a very durable sprayer. The second I opened the box I knew I had a quality product.
Out of the Box:
The sprayer comes in 3 pieces – the 3 gallon container with the hose already attached, the pump/handle, and the long nozzle that attaches to the regulator on the hose. Simply screw on the pump and nozzle and you’re in business in less than 30 seconds. As previously mentioned, this is a top notch product. Echo didn’t cut any corners with the materials used to make the sprayer. The 3 gallon container is made of a sturdy, seemingly indestructible plastic. The pump and the hose both feel strong. The side of the container is very clearly marked in half gallon intervals for easy measuring. Included in the box are a couple extra tips to adjust the spray, but honestly I’ll never bother with them - the standard nozzle is fine for my needs.
Using the sprayer:
The pump is efficient - it builds pressure fast and easily. All of the seals around the pump, hose, nozzle, and pressure release valve are air tight – I didn’t detect a single leak. The regulator does a good job spraying at a consistent rate as the PSI in the tank fluctuates.
When I write a review, even for a great product I always look for at least one aspect/feature that can be improved upon, even if it’s negligible. I honestly can’t think of anything for this sprayer. Sure, it’d be nice to carry it on my back rather than by hand, but Echo makes a whole line of backpack sprayers so I really can’t complain. I could purchase one of those, but the extra money to get a backpack sprayer just isn’t worth it to me. I have a 1/4 acre property so it won’t kill me to hold it for the 5-10 minutes it takes to cover the property.
Bottom line: I couldn’t be happier with the sprayer. I’m confident it will provide many years of service. Highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jbb49 Great capacity
What can one say about an Echo product except that it is great! This sprayer assembles in about five minutes and works great! I spray constantly outside due to lots of poison ivies and various other issues one finds in rural areas. I love the 3 gallon capacity as it is just about the right amount to cover an acre or two. It is a bit heavy, but I just put it in a wheelbarrow to move it around larger areas.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TimAllen Forget the warranty in reality there ain't one.
Echo plays games with warranty parts. They don't answer the phone, you have to leave a voice mail. They don't return voice mails. When you do actually get someone on the phone they want to argue with you about whether it's a warranty part or a "wear item". Then they want a receipt. You find the receipt and call back they don't care about the receipt. Then they send you the wrong part, three times in a row. If your time is worth anything you are better off to throw the defective sprayer in the trash and buy a new one. As far as buying the five cent part you need from Solo, they charge $4 for the part, $7.95 to ship UPS (as opposed to putting it in first class mail for less than a dollar) and a $7 small order junk fee.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Korny Great value. Sturdy construction. Works well as advertised!
This is a great sprayer for the money. Saves money compared to individual bug killer sprayers.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by frustrated more junk from ECHO
Right out of the box it leaks water out of the hand valve, all over my hand/pants/shoes. It has cheep plastic on plastic parts that don't seal. The "adjustable" spray tip made a worthless spray pattern that would be no good for killing weeds .Pump and bottle are good, the rest is junk. This will be going back for a refund. I recently bought a echo blower that is now junk too. I will never buy an ECHO product again.
