Advantages of 'Plus' model 4705 over standard 4505

Longer hose 2m v 1.5
Unbreakable fibre glass lance with flow control lock
Separate dosing cap with last use indicator
Wider footing for stability incorporating on board storage for lance
3 year v 1 year guarantee
3 in 1 rucksack style harness for portability

The Plus 4705 is around £30 while the Standard 4505 is £20.

Is the extra cost worth it? Depends what you use them for and how often, I only use smaller pump sprayers for chemicals because I don't use that much of them. A 2 litre solution of TFR for example, does one car and then gets purged and cleaned out. My 5 litre sprayer is only used for water but if it had anything stronger going through it regularly then I doubt the seals would last. If you are going to use and store chemical solutions in them then Hozelock also do a heavy duty range with Viton seals, but again, it's a case of justifying the extra cost.

Anybody tried one of these?
Quite expensive but they use Viton seals so should last even with TFR's and such.

My 5ltr std Hozelock sprayer has nothing but TFR run thru it, never gets cleaned thru with water and sits with TFR solution in it if I don't use it all on my prewash.

2yrs now using it like this with TFR and no leaks, problems or lance issues. Best £20 I've spent on a sprayer whereas the worst £20 spent was on a Venus Foaming Sprayer, constantly having to pressurise it, used once and immediately sold.

In an attempt to clear up the ambiguity about the last drop technology issue I have checked the base of the plus model today which shows the location if the output hose. This is how every last drop is removed.
I appreciate the standard model does not leave much according to comments but this is quite definite and clarifies how they do it.
