    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.

    Great sprayer all the way around.
    I post a lot of reviews because the Exterminating Company I own uses a lot of Stihl products. We believe in this brand. I personally use the SG 31 to treat carpets for fleas and upholestry it gets the job done beautifully, a highly reliable sprayer. Do not let the fact that it is made out of plastics fool you about the durability. I like the fact it's a higher volume spray than the metal sprayers we use. It is a great intermediate sprayer between the full size backpack sprayer and the smaller ... read more handheld sprayer. Also another great feature is the strap because when it's full it can get heavy and that certainly helps maneuver around homes when we're treating them. The biggest testimony I can give about this product is it went From a backup product to a mainstay product for different applications.

    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.

    Serious commercial unit
    I purchased one of these last year to incorporate Mosquito control into my landscape business. It's a great unit with the exception of the weight when it's full of fuel & chemical, near 55lbs and top heavy. I wish they could have designed it with the tank on the bottom. Gets much easier to handle with less chemical. Otherwise it's a great machine, being as I'm a small framed person I'm getting the new SR200 which is smaller & lighter.

    The best and most reliable mister/blower on the market.
    Stihl SR 450 is a beast period. It is great for large areas and extra large areas. If you aren't using this product you are selling yourself, your company, and your customers short. The Stihl SR 450 has more power to get way into wooded areas and up into trees and dense foliage. When full it can be a bit heavy, but the upside is you can get alot more area serviced. If you own a pest control company and this is not in your arsenal of tools. You are not on the cutting edge of premier service. Buy it now!

    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.

    Excellent Product!
    Let me start by saying we own & use several SR450's for mosquito control, the SR200 is like the baby brother of the 450. We just purchased the SR200 & I'm very impressed, its lightweight & has just enough power to get the job done quickly. If you use one of these professionally like we do you will really appreciate the more compact size & lighter weight of this unit. Its perfect for spraying shrubs & small trees, very fuel efficient & priced competitively. The straps much like the larger unit ... read more could stand to be upgraded to those that come on the BR600, but overall its a great product & we will be purchasing this unit from now on!

    This product is the perfect tool for our mosquito control services
    STIHL's SR200 lightweight sprayer is the perfect tool for our mosquito control services! It has allowed us to become more efficient in more ways than one. The lack of weight and simplistic controls allow our technicians to apply the services in a faster, more accurate way while the system itself retains more of our reduced-risk formulas. This means we end up spending less on supplies in the long-run and can further reassure families that they are receiving the most effective, least invasive ... read more mosquito control service in the area.

    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!
