    This is a great lightweight machine.
    The SR200 is a very dependable,lightweight machine that hasn’t let me down. I’ve used all sizes of these sprayers and the SR200 was the best fit for me since I have back problems. I have to fill up more often but it’s worth it for my back not to hurt at the end of the day. Thanks Stihl for the dependable,lighter weight model.

    SR 200 does the job but LEAKS like crazy.
    I bought a Stihl SR 200 two summers ago and it has leaked all over my back and leg since day 1. I love the blower, it does a great job but I just don't look forward to getting the product I'm spraying all over me. At first I thought it was the cover on the tank but that is alway dry. No leaks around there. I then thought it was from under the tank, Looks dry to me. I have no clue where it is coming from. I'd love to get this fixed. so I can enjoy spraying and staying dry. Great ... read more product, Just fix my leak please :)

    Good enough
    After the first use my back was drenched. I took it back and the dealer replaced the tank and since then it’s been fine. Like other reviews have mentioned, it’s good for lawns but lacks the ability to spray trees without considerable effort. It also is lacking in the blowing power, can double as a light blower but that’s it. That being said, it has been a reliable product. I can’t complain to much, although I wish it were a little less expensive. I would recommend this product but only for specific jobs.

    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.

    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.

    Great Performing Sprayer
    I purchased this sprayer to apply pest control in my yard. The SR450 is powerful enough to get high into my privacy hedges and trees. It also works great to move leave when I just need a reliable, powerful backpack blower.

    Amazing!
    This sprayer is amazing! This is the best one out there. I have years of experience with the 200 and the 450. The 450 has a major flaw (If you want my un-solicited opinion). The 450 has a tank that you can remove and switch around 180 degrees if you wanna switch between a granular or liquid pesticide. The problem is that if you use it commercially and leave liquid in it while traveling, the lateral motion of the liquid sloshing around will eventually wear out the gaskets that seal the tank. I ... read more don't care what you do after that happens you will never get a good seal again, you might as well throw away the whole thing. So if you have the 450 make sure you use all the liquid after every use. Anyway I purchased this (430) blower because the tank is permanently mounted to the backpack. So far I love it and haven't seen any flaws. It is just a larger more powerful version of the bulletproof 200. Oh, and another point is always use premium gas in any Stihl. They get really tempermental otherwise.

    You won’t be sorry!
    I started with an sr200 about three years ago and was super pleased with it then it needed some minor service and I was told it would be 4 weeks before I would get it back due to a long line of customers ahead of me. So while I was at the shop I decided to by the sr430 to use in the interim. I was impressed with how much stronger it was. Sure it was heavier, but somehow felt more comfortable. I have a pest control business and use this thing constantly with only one issue. The issue is that when ... read more I use it for a long period of time(25min) it has been difficult to get started again on a hot day after sitting for 15min or so on the ride to the next house. Not sure if it’s just a little over heated or what. Haven’t heard a good reason why yet, but if I let it sit for 30 min it will start right back up. I use 93octain, non ethanol gas, and stihl synthetic oil. I still love it and wouldn’t consider another brand.

    A must have in my orchard
    Bought this stihl for spraying my small orchard of 60 apple trees. Cut my spray usage in half from my Utv mounted sprayer, and cut my time by at least half. The throttle limiter allows me to adjust for overspray between my various size trees. Happy to say No leaks after a season of spraying. The tailgate on my truck is the perfect height for getting the sprayer on and off my back( it’s a little heavy and awkward to lift off the ground with a full tank of spray). Overall very happy, Another great ... read more product from Stihl.
