The tradition of protecting and caring for plants and plantations goes right back to the early days of the company itself. It was founded over 70 years ago in 1948, in the wine producing area around Stuttgart. The plant protection sector soon became one of the applications for the small and lightweight two-stroke engine.
At the time, the fledgling business still traded under the name "Kleinmotoren GmbH". Vineyard owners in and around Stuttgart were justifiably impressed by how much easier their work became as a result of this new generation of appliances. This innovation finally made it possible for someone to work on their own, that is to say "solo". It also explains how the current brand name came into being in the early days of this family-run business. Today, the company is run by the second generation of the same family.
All that followed is closely linked to the name SOLO: mobile plant protection technology that enjoys the best of reputations – all around the world, be it in German gardens, the vineyards of France, cocoa plantations in Africa, cotton fields in Asia and coffee plantations in South America. SOLO appliances are also used to disinfect larger buildings. In order to meet these diverse requirements, the range of plant protection appliances from SOLO provides everything you might need – from small, manually operated 1 litre sprayers to high performance backpack misters with large tank and powerful two-stroke engines. An extensive range of accessories rounds off our plant protection appliances.
Four tips to help you choose the right product
Pressure sprayer or backpack sprayer?
The answer to this question often depends on the size of the area to be treated. If it's on the small side, a pressure sprayer with shoulder strap will suffice. For larger areas, backpack sprayers are more suitable as they are comfortable to carry and have a larger capacity. All that is left to decide is whether you want to operate the pump manually or let a battery or petrol driven unit do the work for you.
If you need to treat tall plants, you should use extension wands. They will help you reach the right places and apply the medium more accurately. As well as being made of plastic material, spray wands are also available in robust brass or even ultra-light carbon. The telescopic carbon spray wand, which can be extended up to 230 cm, weighs just 160 g. This protects the operator's joints even during longer working periods.
Liquid or solid?
All SOLO sprayers are designed for applying liquid media. However, the nozzles vary depending on the application: flat spray nozzles for ground spraying, hollow cone nozzles for individual plants, insecticides and fungicides. Herbicides are best applied with deflector nozzles. With solid granulate, SOLO 421 is the product of choice. It distributes the medium evenly over the required area – and can also be used in winter to apply gritting salt to pathways.
When to use a mister rather than a sprayer?
In large scale agricultural plantings, orchards, horticulture, vineyards and in many other cultivated plant stocks around the world, it is crucial for the media to successfully reach and penetrate the crops. SOLO power misters are designed to accomplish precisely this. They generate a powerful air flow which splits the plant protection medium into fine mist to cover all the required parts of the plant effectively.
