General Information

 

Since its launch into the market in the 1960's, the Solo backpack sprayer has retained its pleasing appearance, efficiency, and ergonomic design. While little has changed in the sprayer's physical appearance, it has undergone many significant changes in functional efficiency, materials, and durability.

Often poorly imitated, the Solo backpack sprayer maintains its worldwide leadership role through adherence to quality and performance standards which are widely envied. Solo offers customers a wide choice of products and features.

425 (4 gal.) and 435 (5 gal.): piston pump generates higher pressure to atomize the formula. The droplets are smaller and hence suitable for pest control. Use a Solo 425 or 435 sprayer when treating shrubs, bushes, and trees with insecticide or liquid fertilizer.

475 474, 476 (4 gal.) and 485 (5 gal.): diaphragm pump generates lower pressure resulting in larger droplets with less spray drift but thorough coverage. The diaphragm pump is preferable for use with wettable powders whose abrasive nature may cause wear to piston pumps.
