Product Information

solo® Standard Backpack Sprayers - our #1 Selling Sprayer

  • Disease control on animals
  • Weed, insect and disease control on plants
  • Spot spraying
  • Industrial vegetation control
  • No corroding of pump components

This solo® sprayer is designed so only chemical-resistant parts come in contact with the formula being sprayed. As a result, you'll have years of trouble-free spraying. Tanks are made of high-tensile, UV-stabilized polyethylene with high-impact strength and excellent resistance to chemicals and stress. Nylon web straps are padded at the shoulders. Pump handle is adjustable for left or right hand operation. Supplied with two spray nozzles which provide three different spray patterns. Flat spray nozzle is recommended for general area spraying. For spot spraying, the conical nozzle provides a cone-shaped spray when used with the swirl plate and a pin-stream spray without the swirl plate. Large 4" opening with strainer allows fast and safe fillings. Features a handy interlock device for continuous spraying. Weighs 11 lbs. empty. Piston Pump sprayer allows for a wider range of applications. Not recommended for use with abrasive sprays or wettable powders because these substances can score the piston and cylinder of the pump, causing leaks and lowering the life span of the sprayer. Delivers 0.5 GPM at 60 psi. USA made.

      Comments about Solo Backpack Sprayer -- 3-Gallon Standard Piston Pump:

      The pump worked well but constantly leaked down my legs. Considering these are used for harmful chemicals I found this unacceptable. I removed the O-ring and debuted the flashing on the plastic edge but still leaked. Gemplers has kindly refunded my $, what great company. Thanks.

            Comments about Solo Backpack Sprayer -- 3-Gallon Standard Piston Pump:

            I "inherited" this about eight years ago with a broken pump. I rebuilt tihe pump and have put at least a thousand gallons of various weed poison through it since. I like the three gallon tank for ease of lifting and maneuvering over rough terrain. Recently the pump has started to leak a little (wet legs mentioned earlier), and one of the shoulder strap bottom hooks just broke. A good reason to upgrade to the padded straps.

                Junk, Pump plunger comes out of the pump housing almost every use, spilling the chemical down your back and legs. We purchased 3 at the start of the season, and they made it less than 4 days in the field. Don't waste your money....

                  This is an awsome product. Works very well to spray anything you want. Have had a few but problem is pump stops pumping. I rinse it out after every use so I don't no why they stop. I have had four of these and they are very good for a season or two then they stop pumping up. I am a landscaper and use this quit often. Thanks for tlistening
