    Summary: If you really have to spray, and eventually almost everyone does, you might as well use a good tool. Makes the job easier, more enjoyable, and faster. The Solo 425 sprayer is a great tool for the job! I've been using Solo backpack sprayers ... read more

  • PRODUCT LEAKS, dangerous

    Pros: Very good pump, pack sits well on back, easy to pump and spray
    Cons: Leaks from Bottom.  Dangerous.

    Summary: I love the pump and ergonomic design of this sprayer.  however, it has one fatal flaw that makes this sprayer useless: it leaks.  mine leaks from the bottom, the more pressure the more it leaks.  not good with any chemical but especially ... read more

  • Good sprayer, lousy internal filter

    Pros: Easy to operate, high pressures developed, excellent for home gardening.
    Cons: Must destroy sprayer to clean inlet filter.

    Summary: Solo makes a great piston sprayer but the fluid inlet is at the bottom of the pressure 'bottle' and requires total disassembly of the unit to clean.  After disassembly you'll likely need all new o-rings and a lot of luck to avoid leaks, because the ... read more

    Pros: Easy to operate
    Cons: lids leak and can be hard on the back

  • Good spray performance but Quality issues

    Rated Show
    Pros: Sprays good, Adjustable nozzle is reasonable, pump is efficient, has bushings for pump shaft.
    Cons: Frame is not formed quite right. Lid leaks pesticide on your back.

    Summary: My 425 sprays like a champ. Efficient pump but a bit hard to pump at the highest pressure and may not be best choice for higher pressures. Not a 4 gallon unit no matter what the company says. Even if you could get 4 gallons in you wouldn't want it ... read more

  • CAUTION: SOLO BACKPACK SPRAYERS LEAK!

    Jun 9, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Holds pressure well and is easy to use when working properly.
    Cons: These have major problems with their lids and keeping chemicals inside.

    Summary: After owning 2 of these in the last year and a half I am convinced these are dangerous sprayers. The 2nd is a replacement from Solo for the 1st and the problem is the same. Both have major leak problems with the lid which can cause chemicals to leak all ... read more
