The filler hole is an excellent size and the basket filter is deep. There are holes all the way round and in the bottom of the filter, so you can be sure the liquid will pass through into the tank quickly and that the air from the tank will be equally well displaced.
We like the fact that there are so few wearing parts to this sprayer. This is an uncomplicated design and one that quickly dismantles for cleaning and maintenance - no tools needed. And just take a look in the pump handle. There's room in it to store your spare nozzles. Now that is a clever idea.
On the other side of the unit we find that the 500mm lance is comfy to hold and has a lightweight trigger with spring-loaded, quick acting valve.
Our tester suggests a little more padding to the shoulder straps would help but he praises the adjustable waist strap, which features a quick-release buckle.
"This definitely keeps the sprayer in a straight position on your back while you are pumping. And the strap is adjustable so you can always be sure of a good fit," he says.
