Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Useful Backpack Sprayer - SG 20 This backpack sprayer harness is adjustable so the equipment fits me comfortably during the application of my weed killer. fertilizer and pesticides. Also, the applicator wand is adjustable and ensures my spraying accuracy because it holds my adjustments without slipping out of adjustment. Finally, I enjoy the constant pressure feature that allows me accuracy and control in my yard maintenance tasks.The Stihl Engineers did an impressive job of designing the pressurized fluid reservoir separate from the main tank. It helps me maintain constant pressure even through refills. This keeps my property looking good without splotchy blobs of overspray scorching the vegetation and ruining the appearance of our home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent performance I've been using my sprayer pretty hard for a couple of months now. Perfect from the beginning. No leaks. Excellent wand control, power and spray patterns. I have only one suggestion - devise on-board storage for the hex wrench that comes with the sprayer. Hasn't happened yet but I know the wrench and sprayer will eventually be separated. July 22, 2016

Rated 1 out of 5 by UNHAPPY with SG20 I am also an unhappy owner of a Stihl SG-20 back-pac sparyer. I have owned mine for a little over 3 years and my wife uses it around the house & farm spaying grass in garden and yard. I own 4 Stihl grass trimmers FS80 & 85, a Stihl pole saw and a Stihl Farm Boss chain saw in which I am very pleased with and would not own anything else. But back to my problems with my SG 20, we are having the same problem with the pump not being able to pump it because it is locking up. I have always lubricated the piston every time we use it but still having this problem. Also due to it being hard to pump now the hose on the sprayer is leaking at the pressure chamber. It leaking on my wife's back every time she uses it. As good as all of my other Stihl products are I am Very disappointed with this SG 20!!! June 19, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sprayer Pump ceased to work I too am an unhappy owner. I've owned mine for for just over 3 years, and the pump no longer works. It's as if the pump piston is "stuck" and it won't move. Yes, I did lubricate it before EVERY use. this is more than disheartening since the Solo brand previously used tended to leak the contents out onto my lower back. I'm sorry folks....but a company that sells a premium product like Stihl should NEVER be able to accept the poor craftsmanship that this SG 20 has proven to have. This wasn't the only thing that failed. The wand lever also broke off in my hand...and it was only a few months old at this time.I hope that Stihl reads this critique, and makes this right by me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Very very disappointed I have had this sprayer for two years. The spray gun has cracked two times and had to be replaced. The hose from the tank to the sprayer gun is now leaking profusely. Because of constant repairs I have only been able to use the sprayer a few times. For the cost and the cost of constant repairs, I would not recommend it. June 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by To all the with bad reviews This is by far the best back pack sprayer you will ever buy. You can replace every single piece on it. As a professional pesticide applicator with licensing thru pennstate university and work for landscaping company, I have 3 of these that are well over 5 years old and the only issues are replacing the nozzles when worn, which you have to do for every sprayer because that's normal wear and tear, and changing and keeping the diaphram/piston area full of clean oil. These are used an average of 25 hours a week each by two of us. I have one for lawn care products, one for tree, shrub and flower products, and one for non-selective herbicides. So as I said anybody that has something bad to say about these products, abused them, or do not know how to properly used them or maintain them. Which is scary because they are very rugged and very simple to maintain. The only con I have is they are heavy and that's only due to the high capacity, so to fix that only put 3 gallons in at a time. May 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best sprayer for the money, no question about it. I own Honest Pest Solutions in Lawrenceville Georgia! These are the only sprayers we use. We can afford to buy any sprayers we want regardless of cost.. But the Stihl SG 20 is the best. I think the majority of the negative reviews about these sprayers are clearly operator error. We use them everyday all year long and owning many of them I can honestly say we haven't had any of the problems some of the people on here have had. Plus there is no actual proof they are giving truthful reviews or even own the SG20. The only con I have are the straps could be thicker, more padding. I hope this helps you decide and become a proud Stihl owner like we are! Do the research, educate yourself, and own a Stihl SG 20. I promise you won't be disappointed. May 1, 2016
