Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MadMax I concur...Buy something better!
I like Echo...I have a chainsaw, a weedwacker, both great products.
This...Not so much. I purchased this tonight to spray some pretty nasty pesticide to get rid of two carpenter ant colonies. I'm glad I had on three pairs of nitrile gloves because the mixed product was leaking from where the hose attaches to the wand.
Everything seemed to be in order in terms of gaskets and O-rings, but it leaked horribly!
I've owned two other lesser quality sprayers that DID NOT leak!
I am returning this tomorrow to get another one. I'll update my review if the new one doesn't leak.
On a side note: Once the pesticide was inside the container and pressurized it was too late to do anything about the leaks. If you're going to be spraying hazardous substances, I would suggest doing a leak check with just plain water first...Maybe that goes without saying? But I'll make sure from now on whenever I buy one I'll leak check it first!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by psno Buy something better
I was once again fooled by thinking the product made by a good name and sold at Home Depot would be the same in quality. When will I ever learn? All the fits on the sprayer were so poorly made that the product I was applying was leaking out all over. The more pressure, the worse the leaks. I disassembled it and checked all the gaskets and orings, and they appeared to be in place. When I released the application trigger, product continued to dribble out. It was just manufactured poorly. I will buy something for twice the price if I have to as long as it's a quality product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RyanM I bought and returned every cheaper model before spending the extra $$ on this one....
Needing a pump sprayer, I purchaced the Home Depot branded one after one use the pump handle lock broke. I returned it for another brand. Same issue, as they all seem to be manufactured by the same company and use the same cheap plastic locking clip. After looking at every one my store carried I bought the echo. It is constructed much better than the cheaper models. Although this isn't perfect it's a great sprayer and so far I'm on my second year with the echo and I haven't broke it yet. So, needless to say as of now, I'm happy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Mixed quality at best
I got this to do some spraying around the yard as it seemed to have a decent sized tank and would work for my purpose. I don't want a tiny 1 gallon, nor do I want a large heavy tank. I got it home and it wouldn't even go together despite a fair amount of trying. The problem was the feed tube to the wand. It would not fit into the fitting it was meant to be fit into. The instructions say to lubricate it, which I did, and it wouldn't fit. Honestly it seemed to be a poor fit as it was too snug to even work. So I cleaned it off, took it back and when I took it to the returns counter the guy looked at it and asked what was wrong with it. I said nothing, except it sucked for me. He started to laugh so I asked what was so funny and he said "This is not the first one to come back....".
Go ahead and try it, but do keep your receipt! I wasn't impressed. From the other reviews I would expect that some have better luck than others, and that doesn't mean nobody else will have great success with it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by itsanss Solid pump sprayer
This is a pretty good pump sprayer. It is my second one in the last couple of years. I have yet to find a pump sprayer that lasts more than a couple of years no matter how well taken care of they are. So I won't dock this one too much for it not lasting more than a couple of seasons. Anyway - pumps up fine, holds pressure great and sprays for a long time without having to pump again. Only thing that's kind of sort of a con is that the "lock" when you turn the handle after you're done pumping doesn't catch super well. After you pump up pressure and are ready to carry the jug and go spraying, sometimes just the slightest twist or wrong movement will unlock the pump handle and the jug will fall on the ground and you'll have to stop, push the handle pump back down, and then twist to lock again. You should probably expect to this to happen at least a few times during each 3 gallon mix you spray. But I usually find that my shoulder and arm need a rest anyway when that happens. Happy spraying! Don't drink the tank mix or rinsate!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillWell A much better sprayer........
Had to replace my 10 year old sprayer. This item certainly did fill the bill. Much easier to use. Much easier to repair (if required). All sub-assembles are easy on,,, easy off.
It's a sprayer,,, so not much else could be said about it.
The only rub would be that is does NOT include a shoulder strap.
