Like: The wand is attached to the hose better than the Hudson that I purchased before this one. That one broke and sprayed me with copper sulfate fungicide. Felt like throwing up for three day. Had to call Poison Control Center.
Dislike: The cap leaked where the pump part is embedded in the cap. It also leaked through the threads on the lid. Possibly from molding problems.
Why I bought it: The first sprayer that I bought broke, sprayed me, and I ended up being in bed feeling like I had to vomit for three days. So I went to AM Leonard thinking they have REAL tools. But it was defective out of the box. Solo was polite, but it was a holiday and quite frankly I needed it. It took extra days to get it replaced and in the meantime, I was losing crop. I needed next day air...or whatever it takes to get it to me immediately. That's not what happened. Too slow for my needs. Guess I still didn't pay enough.
A.M.Leonard:We have contacted the customer and he has been taken care of
I bought it because I have been very satisfied with the back pack sprayers. I have 2 of the back pack sprayers and they have been very dependable. The hand held sprayer has continued my pofessional satisfaction. It will provide many years of service in my career as a professional gardener and designer.
I actually bought two of these---one for herbicides and one for non-herbicides. Good quality, easy to use. I have had a little problem with some dripping out the end after I have released the trigger.
I already had this sprayer which I use for insecticide and fungicide applcations in the landscape and for our small vegetable orperation. I liked it so much that I got a second one which is dedicated to spot treatments of weeds with glyphosate.
I won't buy any other brand of sprayer. Solo is 100% dependable! They are easy to pump, and hold their pressure, and give us no problems what so ever!
