Stihl introduces liquid-only high-capacity backpack sprayer

The new Stihl SR 430 gasoline-powered liquid-only backpack sprayer delivers a large spraying range, reducing the time it takes users to treat large areas. Its high performance pressure pump provides a constant flow of product with no loss of pressure, regardless of the spray angle. While the engine is running, the pump also continuously mixes and agitates the tank contents, delivering a more consistent application of product. The sprayer is also comfortable to wear, featuring an anti-vibration system, soft rubber grips and optional chest and hip belt accessory to evenly distribute weight. The SR 430 is ideal for farmers, foresters and pest controllers.

“The Stihl SR 430 will save you valuable time on the job,” said Thomas Techow, product manager at Stihl Inc. “With more power and 20 percent greater spraying range, this high-capacity backpack sprayer saves one hour for every five previously needed to treat the same sized area*.”
