push lever through opening on pump,
place washer on pump lever and then
place hairpin lock and push through.
On the same side where the pump is
located, place the round portion of the
pump handle through the hole on the
base of the sprayer. When it is almost
through, place the bent portion of the
pump lever through the hole on the flat
portion of the handel. Once through, place
on one washer and, then the locking pin.
(See figure 3). The round tube comes
through the base of the unit and extends
out 6.4mm (1/4”), exposing the hole
drilled through the tube. Place on the
other washer and the other holding pin.
The pump handle assembly is now
complete.
HIP SUPPORT
Take the black plastic hip portion and side
the two end sections into the two
receiving notches on the base, the
rounded side up.
STRAPS
Hook the plastic clip attached to the
shoulder straps into the appropriate
lateral opening on the hip support.
SPRAY WAND AND NOZZLE
Attach spray wand to spray gun and firmly
tighten. To adjust nozzle, tighten (turn
clockwise), cap for a fine atomized spray,
or loosen (turn counter clockwise), for a
coarser spray or solid stream.
THE SPRAYER IS NOW READY TO
USE.

6. Pre-operation
NOTE
Hose clamps are not completely tight.
Please tighten hose clamps prior to using.
Hose clamps are left loose to extend life of gaskets and fittings.
WARNING
Oil cap gasket before using and lubricate weekly so the
gasket will seal properly and prevent chemical leaks.
Oil check valve and maintain breather hole clear of debris.
Your failure to oil may can cause the tank to collapse and
crack due to vacuum created by pump lubricate with "3 and
1" oil.
IMPORTANT
Before using, oil cap gasket, felt pump washer, and check valve,
and maintain breather hole clear of debris. Your failure to oil,
clean check valve, and maintain breather hole open to allow air
into the tank, can cause the tank to collapse and crack, due to
vacuum created by pump.
1. Before you remove cap, be sure there is no pressure in the
tank. in order to release pressure, invert unit upside down and
squeeze spray pistol (aim away from you). Pressure will
escape; when hissing stops, all pressure has been released.
Remove pump assembly by turning counter-clockwise. The
pump handle has two locking positions, one turning clockwise
and one counter-clockwise.
2. Remove cap.
3. A unit that has been used with herbicides should never be used
to spray insecticides, unless the sprayer has been properly
cleaned and all other chemicals neutralized. Failure to do this
could cause you to kill plants that have been sprayed. Consult
with the manufacturer of the chemicals in use to obtain proper
instructions.
4. Always oil the gasket on the cap of the unit, as well as the
check valve. This will extend the life of the seal and is important
for obtaining a proper seal with no leaks.
5. Mix solution in a separate container, following the
manufacturers’ directions.
6. Pour pre-mixed solution through strainer into tank. Reinstall cap
tightly.
7. Place sprayer on back and pressurize tank by pumping
approximately 5 to 11 times.
8. You will need to pump occasionally to maintain the desired
spraying pressure.
9. For best results, the sprayer should be pumped every five
seconds on a continuous basis. This will maintain your spraying
pressure. If you do not pump, you will not have pressure to
spray.
7. Operation
• Always release pressure in the pump prior to filling, cleaning, or
servicing the sprayer.
• Before opening a container of pesticide or other spray material,
carefully read, understand, and follow all instructions on the
label.
• Do not use flammable materials in the sprayer: they can ignite
and/or explode, causing serious injury.
• Never use caustic or corrosive materials in the sprayer, which
could result in damage to the unit.
■ HOW TO ADJUST THE NOZZLE
• To adjust nozzle, tighten cap (turn clockwise) for fine atomized
spray, or loosen (turn counter-clockwise) for coarser spray or
solid stream.
■ HOW TO PREPARE YOUR UNIT FOR USE
• Normal working pressure should be from 25 psi to 40 psi. Too
much pressure will waist chemical and over apply, as well as
causing potential damage to pump tube.
• Pump occasionally to maintain the desired spraying pressure.
