Rated 2 out of 5 There has to be something better
I'm a Stihl fan and don't use my equipment commercially, just to maintain my own yard, etc. I'm on my second SG20 sprayer. The first sprayer's tank split where it was unusually thin at the bottom. The hoses on both sprayers dry rotted in about a year. I only use my sprayer a few times each year, and store it empty and cleaned each time. I store it inside a barn. I last used my sprayer about a month ago and and the pump has now stopped pumping. I own half a dozen pieces of stihl equipment and the sprayer certainly isn't the same quality as all my other equipment.

I have had my sprayer five years and it doesn't do anything wrong. My first repair was a new hose after the other finally dried out. Getting ready to buy another for a friend. Great value.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stamas Nice, but leaks
Have several of these, for work and home. Light duty on all. Works well.
The fitting need to be constantly tightened or it will leak. The one for home use leaks from the bottom fitting on tank, can't tighten that. New so took it back but still waiting for it to be repaired.
Am going to track down a powered sprayer for treating for mosquitoes.

I purchased this sprayer 2 months ago. The first time I used it the coupling on the hose came loose and sprayed all over me. I tightened it up and it worked for a month or so. Now it started leaking again and I cant fix it and had to take it to the shop. I am getting tired of having a wet shirt full of chemicals on my skin. The sprayer is also very heavy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Teuflhund Good product but
This is a good sprayer but when it loses "prime", it's hard to get it to spray. When flushing it out, it loses it's prime and I wind up taking about an hour messing with it to get it to pressurize it again. Either I'm missing something or there must be some trick to getting it to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rich Very easy to use
Used for the first time today. Sprayed an area that would take 2 or 3 hours in 45 minutes. Everything worked perfect. Easy to pump with a good spray. Actually enjoyed spraying the yard for the first time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by glck911 I had no luck with this product
After 1.5 years the product failed. The unit started leaking and the parts are very expensive. I feel that a product of this price should have lasted longer. Also the straps are not very padded and seem to cut into your shoulders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by groundzero298 Best I've found so far.
Works great for the property I manage. Easy to use, back pack is a plus, keeps my hands free. Separate air tank is great, nice being able to open it up without the puff in the face. Pumps ups quick, holds a nice even pressure.
Not the lightest when full.
