        Comments about Solo #425 Deluxe Backpack Sprayer:

        Just want to say that I like the sprayer.The shoulder strap part where you weave the strap thru ( small black plastic piece) to tighten straps.I am very disappointed with the very cheap quality of this part.Both of mine broke the first and only time I have used my sprayer.This piece needs a very serious upgrade.I would not waste my time replacing it with the same piece if you were to send me a replacement.I am very disappointed with the quality of the piece.I had to use a piece of wire to hold the straps together before I could use it for my first and only use and then I still could not adjust the straps.Unacceptable. I am just a homeowner,not professional use.

            Backpacks are not as good as the ones that i purchased 2-3 years ago. Hose comes off of bottom of backpack and the strapes will pull threw plastic after a month of use. Thought about sending all of them back for replacements. Not happy at all with these backpacks.
