Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by David Poor pump design
This is a decently built sprayer but after the first use I found the pump stroke to be extremely short. After further investigation I found the diaphragm arm hits the plastic shroud that covers the diaphram. This requires lots of short strokes to pump the unit excessively to keep pressure. Of course this resulted in a worn out arm by the time I finished the first tank of spray application. After looking for the receipt which was gone months ago I opted to take my Dremel tool and cut away the plastic that was impeding the pump arm which made the unit more user friendly. After reading some of the posts here about "clicking" and "popping" during use I can only assume this is a design flaw rather than a one time incident. I have since relegated this unit to weed killer as I don't apply much of that and have purchased another brand for my heavier spraying jobs.

You would think with the oversized lid and handle that you would get it tight enough to not leak but that's not the case with the one I bought. Used it a handful of times in the last year and when I put it on my back the lid leaks. Won't buy this brand ever again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thechadlee Great purchase
I love this sprayer. Works great and I can cover a lot of area in a short time. It's heavy when filled with 35lbs of fluid but that's to be expected. The plastic clips and straps are a little uncomfortable on my lumbar/spare tire area. I might wrap them with padding and a lil black tape.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Floridabrush Pump position and pressure really sucks
Will be taking it back. Exhausted by it. If you are doing a lot of spraying, forget this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by r123 Glad I made this purchase
This product is very user friendly. I have acreage that weeds take over if not controlled. This little sprayer is just the right size and performs great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bajabound91 Very good product compared to others that I reviewed on the Internet
Solo and other brands were pretty badly reviewed on the Internet. Many said that the straps were weak and that the diaphragm failed soon after purchase. This sprayer has excellent straps and is comfortable to wear. It works well. The only issue I have is the pump handle makes a clicking noise each time I pump it. I have not isolated where the noise is coming from yet. It does not seem to interfere with the operation of the sprayer so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty Easy to use
I have 5 acres of land so this 4 gallon sprayer allows me to spray most of the weeds growing on my property without filling up a second time. It is remarkably comfortable but at 60 years old my shoulders do get a little tired even with the heavy duty pads. I set it on my work bench and back into it to attach the harness to my body. This sprayer is well made and carries a lifetime warranty. Keep the o-rings greased and it will function flawlessly. You can use it for liquids and powders and it won't clog. I like the large opening to pour the water in so it keeps me from getting the whole tank wet. It has a pressure chamber so you don't have to be pumping the whole time you are using it.
