These sprayers easily and effectively handle disinfectants, fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and formulations for tree, shrub, and plant protection. The UV-stabilized polyethylene tank accepts water or oil-based chemicals, and the Viton® seals resist corrosive chemicals. Not recommended for acids. The 28˝ unbreakable wand offers excellent reach, and a commercial shut-off valve with lock-on/lock-off feature minimizes user fatigue. Also features an easy-fill, extra-large tank opening; interchangeable pump handle for left or right-hand operation; 48˝ nylon-reinforced high-pressure hose for extended reach; double filtration system (filter basket and nozzle filter); padded adjustable shoulder straps; and rugged metal frame.

The piston pump sprayers have a maximum pressure of 90 psi, and the diaphragm pump sprayers have a maximum pressure of 60 psi. The diaphragm pump is made of top-quality Tivilon® material for outstanding resistance to harsh chemicals and can be used with wettable powders, liquids, and bleach solutions.

I have had several Solo back pack sprayers over the years. They both sprayed as expected but both suffered failures at early stages and would serve for light use. The first units pump leaked the first season running chemicals down ones legs. the second the handle failed the second time it was used. The forth season the pump leaked and broke. These units were used for spot spraying with only about 50 gallons per season use.


Have been using the Solo sprayer for 25 years. Excellent tool for broadcasting our chemical a fair distance, whether on foot or from a boat.The resevoir capacity is more than sufficient for large spraying assignments. It is fairly easy to clean and maintain and worn parts are easy to obtain.I don't think anybody would put these sprayers to the test like we do and they perform admirably.
