    You know my veiws on backpack sprayer by now as they are all made with really cheap parts so don't last whichever one you get.

    Contrary to what papa smurf says:p I have had my wcw one for 18 months now & still going strong. The controller packed up ages ago but never used it anyway as control the water flow with a tap.
    My big boy I've had about a year now. Still works well although I would not carry it by the handle. The pole I got with it is also going well.
    Maybe I've been lucky. My wcw one I have changed the hoses on it as the ones that come with it harden up after a while :D
