STIHL has launched the new SGA 85, the manufacturer’s first cordless, battery-powered backpack sprayer, ideal for spraying in farms, gardens, orchards and vineyards.
The new cordless sprayer features a powerful diaphragm pump, providing high operating pressure without the need for manual pumping. An easy-to-access rotary knob located below the storage tank varies pressure during operation between 1 and 6 bar, visible on the handle mounted pressure gauge. A wideband volume flow covers multiple spraying applications using the various nozzles and accessories available.
Designed with maximum comfort in mind, the SGA 85 boasts a comfort-carrying system that utilises a height and width adjustable chest strap. As well as a padded belt, distributing the weight of the tool evenly to maintain comfort during operation, even over long periods. A carrying handle also offers convenient transportation when not in use and refilling the tank.
The 17 litre tank is simple to fill thanks to the large opening and a strainer helps pre-filters liquids, preventing larger particles from entering the tank. A separate tank filter provides uninterrupted and reliable flow operation and prevents any dirt from entering the pump.
Other features include a lance holder on both the belt and tank for safe storage and a battery protection flap stopping dust or water splashes. The SGA 85 is ready for STIHL’s Smart Connector, ensuring users can easily reap the STIHL Connected system benefits.
