    First off, let me thank @encapman for allowing me to purchase this at his reduced price. Truly appreciated.

    I'm really liking this sprayer. It has already outlasted and out performed my Ryobi sprayer. Built much tougher and more versatile. I'm not running solvents through it because i'm hearing guys are having issues with the seals. But for deodorizing and upholstery, it rocks.

    Looked at them at Menards for $105 . Says on the box it's only to be used for water. Nothing about using any kind of chems. Let us know how long it lasts.

    Show us a video the next time you use it, if it's still working and then we'll believe you. If it survives 2 jobs, then it can be certified "Damon Proof". I think as long as you rinse immediately with water, it should last. I'm looking for them Canada but haven't seen them yet.

    I use mine every day and pump every normal cleaning solution through it. When it dies, I'll buy another.

    Just a FYI.

    There is a safety switch that will not allow hi pressure without the wand

    This, I assume, so no one 0 tips their hand

    You can bypass with small piece of metal if so desired

    Never let the smoke out. It is hard to put back in.

    It's a decent sprayer.. My only gripe is your can't turn the jet spray pattern sideways and the battery takes long to charge.. I'm not a 100% sure if the DeWalt 20v battery is compatible but it looks like the locking clip is the same..

    Works as intended and only used it with the long lance on it as @Old Coastie posted about the shorty not doing the greatest...

    I put a 100 psi pump on a 5 gal sprayer I paid $100 for. Forget those heavy hudson sprayers had one. Mine has wheels on it. www.ruralking.com Countryway 5 gal rechargeable sprayer LG 05SS

    Had it for at least 5 years now. Replaced the battery once just because I felt it was time.

    If you want a pic I can send you one by cell phone.

    Hard to believe someone would talk so much crap about the IPS sprayer and then go and buy this cheap POS knock off. Smh

    My IPS sprayer was probably the best purchase I made in a while. Used on literally every job and still going strong and was purchased before any of the upgrades.

    When they get them back in stock I'll buy another one then I can take the inline sprayer I keep for back up off the truck for good.

    And know I don't keep a back up sprayer because I don't trust the IPS, I keep back ups of everything that I reasonably can.

    I have an IPS with the upgraded seals and like it very well. I use it for when I need an even spray, like putting down Ultraseal. However, both batteries are conking out; that is an issue. Good sprayer.

    The WORX is also a good sprayer, for different reasons. A spare battery is always smart.

    My IPS stopped pumping when I tried using some car was shampoo through it. I figured it was too foamy so as I bent over to check that the hose was at the bottom of the bucket I dropped it from a foot off the ground...

    Francois sent me some new seals to try, no go.
    Next we tried a new pump head, no go..
    Than the battery started smoking during testing.
    One of the batteries was also on the way out after just a few charges..

    I'm so hooked on the concept that I'm going to try the Worx for uph, deo and mild (non boosted) presprays

    Maybe I've been lucky but mine is all original and it's already outlasted my corded multi sprayer, my battery multi sprayer and my rocket sprayer and each of those were $400 plus compared to the $240ish i.paid for the IPS.

    I run Powermax, slop and gobble, Judson O2, shorebest 2790 through it daily. I've even ran muriatic acid through it with no issues.

    I haven't dropped it and I stow it away in a safe place in my van between jobs.
