I was hoping version 8 would be much better than this. I purchased the first version a few years ago when they first came out and had a lot of problems with it. I decided then to use the Worx power shot instead, and used Worx ever since. Seeing the new and improved version 8 I thought to give them another chance, especially with the claim that they can handle such a variety of chemicals. However, upon delivery of the unit I was very disappointed. The following is a list of items I found to be deficient. Keep in mind that my basis of comparison is with the Worx sprayer >Flow rate is very low (compared with Worx) even when V8 is set to its highest setting. >Casing not as robust. >Nozzles are of small, none-standard type. The unit is built that it cannot accommodate any other style other than the style provided. >Of the nozzles provided, the spray patterns are not even (cheaply made nozzle). >The supply hose is stiff and of low quality. >Poor design for filter placement. >The power on-off button is redundant and serves not purpose other than to drain the battery. What i did like about this unit was the feature where the trigger will lock on so the user doesn't need to keep pulling the trigger to keep the pump engaged. The other cool feature was the variable pump speed selector.
It was good experience thanks
Pros: Definite improvement over the V7. Much better design and construction. Pre sprayed over 12,000 sq. ft. and battery still on full charge. Going into week three on original charge. Cons: Took 3 months for delivery. Doesn't have fan tip like V7. Not inter changeable due to new design.
