SR 430
SR 430 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from ok i ran 6 of these all summer they do ok, but when it gets hot, the have issues starting even when running all day. Vapor lock i suspect is the issue. They are a bit particular with the blend of fuel, we were very careful to use 91 octane, no ethanol gas and mixed it ourselves as close to perfect as possible. Never broke, just running issues, had to rebuild carbs a few times but they ran 50 plus hours a week easy. these could use a much better designs backpack pad, larger as in wider thicker shoulder pads, and a hip belt, padded would be good as well. 8 to 10 hours a day up and down hills ect it wears on you. a padded hip belt would seriously help along with a better pad design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the trick.for me I bought the SR 430 to spray my apple trees. It works great for the purpose which I intend. Yes it's heavy, yet it's manageable once on your back. There's no way to get around the weight. It's going to be heavy. On the positive side it works so well I do my trees in half the time. I have thought of putting it in a cart or on one of my ATV's Anyhow I'm please with it. I wanted serious tool, not some piece of junk to spray trees which many retailers seem to be selling for hundreds of dollars. This machine can also be used as a leaf blower in the fall. The way I look at it you get two tools in one. Oh and by the way my local Stilhl dealer was great. Stihl isn't inexpensive but you get what you pay for. I own other Stihl products and have been happy with them also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stihl, always quality! Stihl products do exactly what they are suppose to do and many others don't. When I pick up any of the 6 items I own I want them to start and perform as expected. Very first Stihl product I bought was without much knowledge of what I expected. It didn't perform. Took it back next day, upgraded after a discussion of what I expected and since then all my products have performed as I expected because the dealer took the time to consult with me.
