Well. I am a Firm believer in a corded. So much less trouble.

And how many places a year (lets be generous- A decade) you actually do that have no electricity....and your Hydro-force would not work if needed, for that once in a decade black swan event? :winky:

And how many fractions of a second, that difficult plug-in event, steals from your life expectancy?
so lament the corded....

The battery will be the weak point in any cordless sprayer. If you do go cordless, Multi-sprayer. If you go corded, I prefer the Flexipro. The corded Multi-Sprayer is also good.

Scott, you've confused me.
Not hard to do.
I've had a FlexiPro Sprayer for many years & have been VERY happy with it.
My FlexiPro is a battery job, not corded. ?????

I am not saying that all battery sprayers will have problems. Rather that the percentage of battery sprayers with problem is higher than with corded sprayers.

We sold our own Omni-Pro and later FlexiPro battery sprayer as well as two other brands of battery sprayers. The percentage of complaints on all the battery sprayers was about 4 times as high as the number of complaints about corded sprayers.

Most battery sprayers and most corded sprayers worked fine, but the odds were that a battery sprayer was more likely to have a problem.

The original had the base of a tool that used Dewalt batteries. I have about a dozen Ryobi drills, so after taking apart the original sprayer I cut the base off a donor drill and attached it exactly like the original was. Looks factory.

Ryobi has three new sprayers, 1 gal, 2, gal and 4 gal backpack.
Takes standard battery like all their stuff.

have one.
Got it free last year with the purchase of Ryobi hedge trimmer
the trimmer is decent, the sprayer is too light duty and not near enough pump volume for carpet pre-spray

good to spray the occasional dandelion that pops in the mulch bed
but a rinky-dink POS for "professional" use

They are crap. Everything breaks. Made of thin plastic. Be carful. Mine lasted about 2 weeks.
I just bought the 1 gallon sprayer today. 90day bring back to store, 3year warranty, and I paid $12for an extra 2 years.

I’m gonna try your Best Buy method of swapping them out when they crash

i bought a worx hydroshot 4 months ago got two of the bigger batteries with t, each battery will last me like at least 4 jobs, when it dies in the middle of a job i just put the other in and away i go.

I run just fresh water thru it at the end of each day to flush out all the chems, this is important to do on any sprayer in my opinion.

I love my worx sprayer and its all i use now. When it dies i'll just buy another gun only for $89, there will be no need to by another hole set up since i already have two batteries and the charger

I don't know what it is with you people that the only problem I ever have with my hydroforce is that I got to refill it once or twice a day
It's much more convenient to have a worx sprayer onboard to do post deodorization work. Or if you want to apply protectant without unwinding all your hoses, emptying out your HF to fill it with the new chems, and dragging all the lines through the home.

Ok, sometimes before a tenant moves out, they piss all over the house to make the landlord have a bad day. It's shitty olefin carpet so the urine doesn't always show up under UV light. So, after you clean it it smells worse. Then there is the more common occurrence where the tenant tries to clean the carpet themselves with a rug doctor and just smears the love all around evenly. That's when Damon comes in with his magic chems and works sprayer and makes everything all better.

I just did a tenant revenge piss apartment this week. $700 bill. I made video.

The hydro force isn't good for uph0lstery or carpet protectant. That's why.

But if the goobs above are using the electric sprayers for a carpet prespray...well, I don't know what to say

Loved the M-1 for upholstery. We had 5-6 of those little guys.
I've used them for carpet too when I'm scrubbing with the crb before setting up the TM. It's just a lot slower but that's not such a bad thing anymore.
Easy to switch out the jug for other products and even protector at the end.

And it's always worked.
