The Solo 425 Backpack Sprayer is definitely one of the more popular and professional sprayers on the market. The 425 is the “deluxe” model which means it has some advanced features.
The main added feature on the Solo 425 sprayer is the addition of a pressure gauge. The pressure gauge is very important for giving you feedback on how full the unit is(with pressure) as well as allowing for even distribution of chemicals.
If you have used a sprayer without the luxury of having a pressure gauge, you know all too well how annoying it is to have to guess on how much to pump it up. If you guess incorrectly, you will lose your stream and end up having to pump the unit more than is really necessary. With the gauge, those problems are solved.
Main Benefits Of The Solo 425 Backpack Sprayer
I personally like the fold up handle and wand clips that Solo has integrated with this model. I have used different sprayers in the past that didn’t have wands that fold. It is very hard to place the whole packs on a shelf for storage or in the back of a trunk for transport. The clips that hold the wand really solve the problem of the hose getting tangled on surrounding items as well.
Something that I haven’t really seen on other units, I have found on the 425, quick releases for the straps. When you get your backpack sprayer on, you usually tighten it up and get it fitting snug. This sometimes makes it a touch difficult to get off. Solo has solved this by incorporating some “quick release” straps, that allow you to easily slip the unit off your back.
The nozzle that’s included really covers all of your bases. Without changing the tip on the sprayer, you can easily reach down and adjust it from a fine mist to a 30 foot solid stream. The tip is made of bronze, so it will not corrode or become rusted in place.
This backpack sprayer definitely is on the top when it comes to durability and innovative features that you will love in a sprayer.
