A lightweight, value-priced backpack sprayer that’s ideal for small tree farms or vineyards.

Product Description

When you need more power than a manual sprayer, but want the same portability, the STIHL SR 200 is the answer. This value-priced sprayer is in a class of its own, featuring a low-exhaust-emission, fuel-efficient engine that delivers up to 20% better fuel economy than most conventional 2-stroke engines. It’s easy to use with a one-hand joystick-style control handle and provides excellent control over rate and range of spray. And because it’s a STIHL, it uses high-quality components and a comfortable, ergonomic design. With the SR 200 backpack sprayer, a little goes a long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for residential applications This model is great for DIY. Not to big, not to heavy when full, and plenty of power to spray up into tree limbs or across yards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Piece of Equipment Was slightly hesitant after some of the reviews about repeated leaking, but that must have been resolved by Stihl. I've used mine 9 times now, and not a single issue. Using for mosquito control and it is awesome. Well worth the money. My neighbor has one too, no problems from their unit either. GET IT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Problem updated Due to the many reviews here regarding leaking product, I called Stihl and the customer service rep said that a leaking cap has been a problem and has been replaced with an upgraded product cap. The old defective one is smooth and flat on top. The new cap has a cris-cross design on it. Apparently this has corrected all leaking issues. Aug. 15/19

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaked On First Use The very first use of the SR200 it leaked while using Talstar P to treat for mosquitos. After a few minutes, I felt something dripped on my back and pants. I finished treating my lawn and tried to find the leak to no avail. I took it back to my Stihl dealer for repair. I called Stihl tech support and while they were helpful basically said this does happen and asked me if I bent over or caused the liquid to be on the cap. A yeah......... Isn't this suppose to not leak, ever. The cap shouldn't leak if you turned it over in my opinion. I'll see what the dealer says but if I'm soaked again they are going to take it back and will probably upgrade to the 430 SR which has great reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Employees appreciate the effort on the mosquito war. Would highly recommend. I am a small business owner and use many different types of construction related equipment. I live is the South and the mosquitos will eat you alive in our lot. The quality of this sprayer is fantastic. After having read the instructions and teaching my employees, we will soon have a lot less blood hungry bugs. Runs very good, easy too start and use. Easy to spay under buildings and around the many hard to reach areas on or lot. (recycle scrap piles and pallets). Employees appreciate the effort on the mosquito war. Would highly recommend. Will consider other STIHL products in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks - Do Not Purchase I purchased this machine solely for home use and have maybe used it 10-15 times in total over the past 3 years for spraying bug killer. Unfortunately, the entire backside of my pants are covered with bug killer now because this machine leaks from the reservoir. This is a huge problem if you have something with any toxicity like bug killer. I am very happy with all of my Stihl products (MS261 saw, FS90 trimmer, BR600 blower) except for this product, it is poorly designed and has the potential to harm your health. I am surprised Stihl has not recalled all these units. I might reach out to Consumer Reports and report this issue, which many others appear to be having based on recent comments. The machine is currently in the shop, and if they cannot fix the obvious design flaw, I will stop using the machine. It is not worth the risk to your health, esepcailly in light of all the recent headlines around chemicals and cancer (Roundup).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too bad It’s not a coincidence that so many reviews talk about leaking. This thing is a leaky mess and I’ve already had in the shop twice to repair leaks from the tank/hose area which has a poor design, and from a gasket inside the blower at the handle. When the hose to the tank fails pesticide will leak all over your backside and legs. It’s just too bad, because people are always saying how good Stihl is and my first experience is this. I would never be able to recommend this product. Unfortunately, I’ve only found one other company making comparable sprayers to these and they are even worse... need more competition in this area. Maybe that will produce a better product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable product This prayer is unreliable, it has a flawed design causes it to leak all over the user and Reservoir hose comes off way too easily pouring chemical all over the user. Do not buy this product unless you just like throwing money away.
