    Unsure at this point.
    I purchased one based on the reputation and positive experience of owning multiple Stihl products. Tired of the throwaway ones (other brands) sold at the big boxes. The quality looks to be great. Unfortunately I discovered it doesn't come with the fan nozzle. I need to spray large areas and not just one weed in a sidewalk crack. The manual shows an optional nozzle for fan spraying and the picture appears to show another nozzle that is yellow which must be that one (the included one is brass). My ... read more dealer tells me they can't get the other nozzle which makes mine very limited. Is this nozzle available or will it become available? Mine is awaiting use till I get the nozzle. I suggest they bundle the nozzle with the product even if they have to add $5 to the price or whatever. Help! I need the yellow fan nozzle.

    Great Tool, Needs Minor Design Improvements
    I have used this product for the entire season, primarily to spray deer repellent on our gardens. This product is every bit as good as the other Stihl products I have used for many years including two leaf blowers, a string cutter, SG 21 backpack sprayer and a power edging tool. It is well constructed, holds excellent pressure and the nozzle does not clog like other cheaper brands. It holds enough liquid to do a complete spray job without being too heavy. The two minor limitations are: 1. the ... read more carrying strap is poorly designed in the way it loops through upper housing, thus limiting how it can be adjusted and used as an over-the-shoulder carry -- and -- 2. the hose is connected with a plastic nut at the bottom of the tank, which is prone to coming loose when used over time. I strongly recommend users ensure that nut is tight before ever use. Otherwise, it will work its way loose and the contents will come gushing out of the bottom of the tank--an especially unpleasant experience if it sprays all over you.

    very well built sprayer
    this sprayer is a must have for any homeowner. very easy to use and maintain. lightweight even when full of solution. feels to be built very solid compared to other sprayers I have had before.

    Perfect for my needs!
    We had hired a mosquito control company to do what they do. I was home one day and watched the tech! He had the Stihl sr200 he walked around my house and yard and was done in less than 10 minutes! Next day I went and purchased my own! I do my 1 acre and my friends acre! It is simple and easy to use, does exactly what you want it to do. Payed for it self the first year, now my mosquito and tick control is free. I'm 60 year's old and wish they made this unit years ago!

    Great Sprayer/blower
    I'm a home owner with about 1.5 acres of property with lots of landscaping. I researched all the reviews I could find on blower/sprayers and landed on Stihl due to the product's features and readily available parts & service locations near me. I struggled with the decision to buy the SR450 or the SR200, (worried that the SR200 would not have enough power to handle my needs). In the end I bought the SR200 and am very happy I did. It has plenty of power for a residential homeowner's needs.

    easy to use, heavy to wear.
    bought the SR 450 and put it to the test right away by puting 60 gallons through it at a campground. first impression was that it was very heavy and awkward when full. The Stanley manual pump backpack sprayer that i own has more padding and a chest strap. I struggled with the shoulder straps digging into my shoulders. The power was good and the flow takes some getting used to. Easy to over apply if not careful. ready to find new straps and keep on spraying.

    works good but is too heavy and it lid is hard to get tight
    my unit does the job beautifully but is too top heavy when full. the lid is sometimes hard to get screwed down and leaks while in use. i'd like to see stihl engineer the spray tank to operate from below the blower utilizing a pump somehow.....

    Great for Mosquito Control
    This misting blower does it all. I have treated my yard once so far with Talstar P and I can go outside in the evening and not get bit at all! I know other reviews say the unit is heavy, but hey 4 gallons of water on your back and a backpack blower are not going to be the lightest thing to carry around. I recommend filling it up on a sturdy table or truck tailgate, and then slipping the straps on over your shoulders after you have started the unit. I can't wait to to use this for fertilization ... read more and weed control soon. This product is not cheap, but it will pay for itself this summer by not having to hire pest control to treat my yard for mosquitos. Make sure you use Stihl's Motomix for fuel on all of your Stihl products as this will extend the warranty. It has a 2 year shelf life too. Not bad!!

    all around efficient
    I love this sprayer. It keeps the preasure. Balanced very well. Easy to use. The price was a bargain when you consider the quality of this and all Sthil products. I love the fact they are easy to use for women, teens etc. With or without coupons it is hands down a great value.

    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.

    If you need parts, they all come from a dealer
    This backpack sprayer worked well, until it didn't. I got about 2 years of good use out of it, but when I needed to replace a part, that's when I was in for a surprise. Unfortunately, when I put the sprayer away for the winter, I didn't completely drain the spray wand, and the plastic handle froze, swelled, and cracked. When I went online to look for a replacement handle, I found out that all parts are sold through dealers. I was very disappointed to find that I'd have to go through a dealer for ... read more all replacement parts. Not only that, but I couldn't buy just the cracked piece, I would have to buy the whole wand assembly for almost the cost of a whole new complete backpack sprayer. To utilize the remains life left in the main unit, I ended up buying a generic wand for replacement. I won't be buying any more Stihl products simply because the difficulty in obtaining parts for a reasonable cost.
