This sprayer feels very sturdy. On par with the more expensive Solo backpack sprayers I've used professionally. Initial assembly (attach nozzle, handle, shoulder harness) was quick and easy. Large fill opening and very sturdy lid for easy on/off/cleaning. Metal spray wand won't break or crack if you hit something while vigorously spraying. I expect with proper maintenance and storage, this unit will last a very long time! Made in the USA with global parts. Not as good as manufactured and made in the USA, but about as good as it gets these days in most categories. Try finding a good hand tool that's made here, ha!
