Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TruthfullySubmitted Wonderful Backpack Sprayer
This sprayer is like comparing a Cadillac to a Yugo as far as performance. I had a Roundup tank sprayer and the spray nozzle was constantly malfunctioning. Besides, I had to lug around the tank and pump it frequently by hand. This Echo Backpack Sprayer was so comfortable to carry and the spray pressure was constant and GREAT! It was great to simply pump the handle for pressure as I walked and sprayed. I highly recommend this and recommend that this is to be bought at this price even though there are others that are cheaper. The quality on this one is so much better. I cannot say enough other than to say do not buy the cheap ones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MC67 High Quality, Works as advertised and easily assembled.
I purchased this sprayer a little over a month ago and wanted to use it a few times before writing a review. I can now say this about the sprayer: It arrived a day before the estimated delivery date. It was easily assembled and I used it the first time within an hour of receiving it. It works perfectly, it is easy to carry, there are no leaks, the valve on the handle shuts off completely when the trigger is released and the spray pattern heads are solid brass and should last a life time. I am extremely pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Home Depot and ECHO!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doug Operationally the best yard sprayer I've used
My third yard sprayer and by far the best of the bunch.
The capacity and easy of coverage is a big plus and the ability to keep the pressure in the container without having to stop applying makes application a snap. Only complaint I have is there is very little how to use documentation that accompanies the product. It took me some time to interpret the visual assembly process through trial and error....

I own alot of Echo Products including ; Weed Wacker, Chain Saw , Blower, Etc. & decided to buy this unit because of years of excellent use. It has lived up to all my expectations, & works very well. It is easy to pump & spray while on your back as opposed to carrying around the old 2 gallon unit that i had to keep refilling, & carry with 1 arm. It is a great unit with 5 year warranty, & that also prompted my purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Daunbyjsunax Fool me thrice, no more Echo
These sprayers are inherently faulty. In one year, I have owned THREE Echo sprayers, each one being replaced by Home Depot after the previous one failed. The pump WILL fail and bind-up, regardless of your pumping speed. I am done with Echo products in every way, shape and form possible. Do not buy these faulty units.

I use this sprayer a lot. It has not dissapointed me yet. This is a good product that if taken care of will last. We use multiple units in our School District and I continue to buy more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RoboCop The best backpack sprayer ever.
I bought this backpack sprayer after my Round Up hand held three gallon sprayer died. This wasn't available in the store, so I had to order it online ... but shipping was fast and free. The unit was well packaged and the directions were clear and easily understood. Assembly was a breeze and all tools necessary were included. It took only a minute to fill it with some weed killer and off I went! What used to take me 30 minutes to do, now takes me less than 10 minutes. I'm amazed at how much ground I can cover in such a short amount of time. The sprayer tip allows for easy, fast adjustment for different kinds of spray patterns (fan, mist, stream etc). Since you can pump and spray at the same time, the unit really doesn't lose much pressure so output stays at the same rate which allows you to cover a huge area in a short amount of time. I've found the shoulder straps to be comfortable and it even includes a "sternum strap" to prevent slippage. The only annoying thing I've found is that the left strap will suddenly pop of its frame anchor while I pump the handle. Somehow the pump handle makes contact with the plastic anchor clip and it flicks it off the metal frame. It happened twice in 30 minutes, so I might have to zip tie it on. Despite this minor annoyance, this unit is SOLID! Buy it ... you'll be glad you did.
