Rated 5 out of 5 by love this sprayer Replaced a whole fleet of sprayers with these at a landscape company I worked for. We had 8 crews with three sprayers each. Everyone loved these things. They are very reliable, very accurate, and hold up well to Comercial use/abuse. I now work at a golf course and when the old sprayers went bad there, I immediately talked the boss into these. Guess what, they love them too. Never had a problem with one. I can't say how easy they are to work on because I've never had to work on one. Great product, what I'd expect from stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Sprayers on the Market We have used Stihl sprayers for years they are one of the only backpack sayers that can hold up to daily use they average 10 to 15 jobs per day 5 to 6 days per week. They will last a coulpe of years with normal cleaning maintenance on the sprayersCliff September 15, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Needs a waist belt Great sprayer, but when the tank is full a waist belt would distribute the weight over the hips and shoulders, reducing back stress. September 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, very easy to use I have over a hundred rose bushes. They have to be sprayed with fungicide at least every two weeks. I grew out of a 2 gallon sprayer and didn't want a battery pack one, too heavy, plus I have a very sloped yard and need to go up and down stairs, so a wheeled one wasn't practical.The Stilh was a great choice. It held over 4 gallons which was nice, it is lightweight, easy to fill and with the extended wand, did a great job getting into all the spots I needed it do, including climbing roses. I am only 5 feet tall, yet even with the backpack full, I found it easy to use and control (just don't bend down!) To get it on, I put the sprayer on a lawn chair, and then fill it. I then sit in the chair and put the straps on and stand up. Works great. It's not that heavy, and I consider my spraying time a 'weight bearing workout'. The pumping is a good exercise for my left arm. I love the freedom to walk around with the sprayer up and down hills without dragging or lifting anything.I did have to repair the hose once, and replace some o-rings, but otherwise it worked great for 7 years. I am now having some issues with the pressure, and since this unit is so old, I will likely purchase a new one. Much more reliable than other sprayers I have used which most of the time didn't last 1-2 years. July 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Overall this was an excellent investment. All back pack sprayers most likely have the same difficultly of mounting after filled. It definitely needs to be at a height that can be put on while standing. However, I may be using the wrong technique. July 17, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by breaks down after about a year After about a year the shoulder straps broke and the tank pulled loose from the frame spilling weed killer all over the grass. The pump also started leaking from the top seal. Not a good choice. July 8, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too Uncomfortable and Requires Too Frequent Pumping and... As someone else said, I own (homeowner) many Stihl products, but this one just doesn't cut it. It is heavy with that heavy metal pump arm, and puts too much pressure on your back (most if not all others' backpack sprayers have a CURVED section that spreads the weight more evenly around your spinal area). Also, the wand is too flexible and you have to keep pumping to maintain a fairly decent pressure flow. It comes with only a single (brass) nozzle, which doesn't give too fine a spray-a little too course for my taste; many competitors provide 3 or 4 nozzles for different spray patterns, at no additional charge. It has a wide lid, which I think is its only plus. It is a fair traded item and the (un-negotiable) price is higher than almost all others. Pass on it. June 24, 2014
