In 1948 the brothers Hans and Heinz Emmerich designed the first small two-stroke engine weighing in at 14.3 pounds, an incredible feat for that time. Shortly after, in 1951, the brothers developed the world´s first engine driven backpack mist blower. Instead of using stationary engine driven pumps with long spray hoses and lots of manpower, the new machines were able to be operated "solo", by only one person - the birth of our future trademark name.
Today SOLO Incorporated is a world-wide leader and innovator in the production of backpack, hand-held and one-hand compression sprayers. Other Solo products include spreaders, mist and air blowers and cut-off machines. In 2012 we launched a more durable, technologically advanced and innovative brand of cut-off saws for cutting materials such as concrete, steel, asphalt, castings or stone.
Solo products are built tough and made to last. That is why they are the first choice of farmers, professional landscapers, construction and janitorial workers everywhere. If you rely on equipment that contributes to your livelihood, it only makes sense to choose those that will increase your efficiency and productivity.
Solo. The better choice. Since 1948.
