



water supply and/or public sewer systems with
spraying agent or cleaner!
Ensure to avoid contamination when mixing,
filling, using, draining, cleaning, servicing and
transporting by using adequate procedures and
suitable containers.
Spraying agents and cleaners must never be
allowed to enter the mains water supply – not
even by back-suction when filling, public sewer
systems, sprayed onto wastelands, allowed to
drain into natural bodies of water or disposed of
together with normal domestic waste. This also
means that appropriate care must be taken
during filling to ensure that none of the spraying
agent is drawn back into water pipes. Spraying
agents and cleaners and any unused leftovers of
spraying agents and cleaners must always be
collected in a suitable container and disposed of
via approved facilities for household chemical
waste. Please contact your local authorities for
information about your nearest disposal facilities.
Avoid any direct contact with spraying agents.
In case of contact with health hazardous spraying agents, immediately rinse the affected body
parts with plenty of clean water, immediately
change the clothing soaked with spraying agents
and immediately seek medical advice.
Never eat or drink when handling spraying
agents.
Stop working immediately if you start to feel
unwell while working, or if you become unusually
tired. Seek medical advice if the condition
persists.
Never allow children or anybody who is not
familiar with handling this type of spraying agent
to handle the spraying agent.
Clean the spraying agent tank and all other
spraying agent carrying parts whenever the
spraying agent is changed. To flush out any
residue from the pump and the hose, run the
pressure sprayer with clean water after cleaning
the spraying agent tank and before the next
spraying agent is filled in. This will prevent the
risk of any chemical reactions taking place
between the different substances.
Never spray in narrow or enclosed spaces –
spraying agents are toxic and there is a risk of
poisoning. Spraying equipment must for
example only be used in greenhouses if
adequate ventilation is provided. Signs must be
put up in greenhouses that have been treated.
Nobody should enter the greenhouse again until
it has been thoroughly ventilated.
When you have finished spraying, prepare the
device for storage according to section 9.8,
thoroughly wash your face and hands with soap,

Always ensure that the pump is switched off
(setting "O" of the pump toggle switch) and
that the shut-off valve (8) as well as the drain plug
(18) is closed before filling any fluids into the
spraying agent tank. Take the device off your back
and place it on a suitable surface on the ground.
When filling the spraying agent tank, always use
the filling strainer (3) located in the filler neck of the
spraying agent tank and observe the total filling
process.
Before filling the tank check the filling strainer for
dirt or damages.
Cleaning the filling strainer: See section 9.8
If the strainer is damaged, replace it by a genuine
SOLO replacement part (part no.: 42 00 166 25,
mesh aperture: 1.65 mm [0.0650"]).
Avoid any direct contact of the filling hose and the
contents of the spraying agent tank.
The designation of the
spraying agent used has
to be attached to the
device and has to be
updated every time when
the spraying agent is
changed.
CAUTION:
Never fill different spraying agents into the
spraying agent tank without first thoroughly
cleaning the tank and all parts that come into
contact with the spraying agent and flushing the
system with plenty of clean water.
Recommendation: Use the special SOLO cleaner
for plant protection sprayers (dosing bottle of
500 ml [approx. 16.9 oz], part no.: 49 00 600).
Never use aggressive, acid- or solvent-containing
cleaning agents (gasoline for example).
8 Using the pressure sprayer
Fill level markings (4) are applied to the side of the
spraying agent tank (1).
The spraying agent tank has a maximum capacity
of 18 litres [4.76 gal] (top marking). When filling up
the spraying agent tank, ensure you do not fill
above the top marking.
Never allow the spraying agent tank to overflow or
public bodies of water, rainwater drains or sewage
drains to become contaminated.
Immediately wipe up any spilled spraying agent.
After filling, firmly close the spraying agent tank
cap (2) on the filling opening to prevent the
spraying agent from escaping.
ENGLISH 12
Ensure that you follow all of the safety
instructions when using the pressure sprayer.
Every time you use the pressure sprayer, first
check it all over to ensure it is safe to use
according to section 10.
8.1 Spraying
 When applying spraying agent, ensure by using
appropriate measures and procedures that the
unintended release of agent to other areas is
minimized and the drift to the surrounding areas
is prevented.
 Always proceed with the greatest care when
spraying.
 Never use the device under windy conditions or
if it is raining, as this would risk widespread
drifting of the spraying agent.
 Check the wind direction before starting work
and select the spraying direction downwind of
the user.
 It is best to perform spraying work in the morning
or evening, as it tends to be less windy then.
8 Using the pressure sprayer
 Ensure that you only wet what is in fact intended
to be covered with spraying agents.
 Never spray the agent towards persons,
animals, open windows or doors, cars or
anything else that could be damaged by the
spraying agent.
 Use the spray nozzle suitable for your
application. Applicable nozzles: See section 12
 When spraying, ensure that the spraying agent
is applied evenly and homogeneously to the
treated area.
 Carry the properly adjusted and prepared device
on your back.
 Leave the shut-off valve closed when you switch
on the pump (i.e. do not pull the lever).
 Select the required operating pressure at the
pump toggle switch according to the required
range and delivery rate.
In setting II the pump automatically switches off
when the operating pressure is reached at the
shut-off valve. If the pressure drops while
spraying, the pump will automatically switch
back on again. This ensures that the full capacity
of the rechargeable battery is used in the best
possible way.
In setting I, the switch-off pressure may not
always be attained even if the shut-off valve is
closed, and the pump will then run continuously
as a result. In this case we recommend
switching the pump off manually using the toggle
switch during breaks in spraying.
Always completely switch off the pump using the
toggle switch before extended breaks or at the
end of spraying.
 Never allow the pump to run with an empty
spraying agent tank. Running the pump dry will
result in pump damage.
Spraying:
Hold the spray tube at the shut-off valve in your
hand.
Start the spraying process by pressing the shut-off
valve (8).
The red clip can be used to secure the shut-off
valve in its rest position to prevent accidental
spraying. For this, pull the lever slightly away (a)
from the handle and lock the clip (b).
The spray tube (10) can be rotated in the shut-off
valve (8) – after loosening the threaded collar.
This is useful for spraying under leaves.
If the spraying agent is not applied properly, spray
nozzle or filter elementcould be blocked or
damaged. If necessary, clean or replace the nozzle
and the filter element.
Cleaning: See section 9.8
Replacing the spray nozzle and the ball valve filter:
See section 9.4
If the operating pressure built by the pump drops
noticeably and the pump fails to get the pressure
back up to the normal operating level, stop
spraying with the current battery and recharge the
battery.
8.2 Residual spraying agents /
finishing spraying
Switch off the pump immediately when any air is
sucked in and sprayed out through the spray
nozzle. This is indicated by a mist being sprayed
from the nozzle. At this point the spraying agent
tank will still contain a residual amount of less than
280 ml [8.45 oz]. If you do not want to add more
spraying agent and wish to stop spraying instead,
dilute this leftover amount with 2.5 litres [0.66 gal]
of clean water and spray it on the treated area.
After switching off the pump, hold the spray tube
facing down towards the treated area and operate
the shut-off valve to discharge any residual
quantities of spraying agent left in the highpressure hose.
Never allow the pump to run with an empty spraying agent tank. Running the pump dry will result in
pump damage.
Releasing the shut-off valve stops the spray
process.
When you finish working, prepare the device for
storage according to section 9.8, thoroughly wash
your face and hands with soap, take off your work
clothing and ensure that it is washed regularly.

9 Maintenance, cleaning and storage
9 Maintenance, cleaning and storage
9.1 General operating and maintenance
instructions
After running in the device for approximately
5 operating hours, check all accessible nuts,
screws and bolts to ensure that they have not
become loose. Retighten them as required.
9.2 Trial run
At least at the start of every spraying season and in
frequent use at least once a month, perform a trial
run with clean water to check the following:
 Tightness of all equipment components at
maximum permissible pressure with open
and closed shut-off valve
 Function of all active components
(shut-off valve (8), pump toggle switch (12),
pressure gauge (9))
 Dosing and distribution accuracy of all the
nozzles used by measuring the spraying agent
delivery rate according to section 9.3
Never start working if there are any irregularities or
leaks, if you can see any damage to the equipment
(including the support frame), if any of the adjustment settings are incorrect or if the equipment is
not working properly in any way. In this event have
the device checked by an autorised SOLO
workshop.
9.3 Checking the spray nozzles and the filter
elementby measuring the spraying agent
delivery rate
Fill up the tank with clean water to the maximum
marking, start it up and spray for exactly one
minute. Then measure the quantity of water
required to refill the tank to its maximum level.
The value measured corresponds to the delivery
rate of the device in l/min for the selected setting of
the pump toggle switch.
This value must not deviate by more than 10 %
from the value indicated in section 12.
If the actual value is too low, this may be caused
by deposits in the spray nozzle and/or in the ball
valve filter or a discharged battery.
Charge the battery, clean the parts and repeat the
check.
If the actual value is too high, this may be due to
wear or damage to the spray nozzle.
When checking the nozzles, also check whether
the spray nozzle is producing an even, fan-shaped
spray pattern.
ENGLISH 14
If the delivery rate is still too low after cleaning the
nozzle and the ball valve filter, or if the nozzle
and/or the ball valve filter are worn or damaged,
replace the nozzle and/or the ball valve filter by
genuine SOLO replacement parts.
Changing the spray nozzle and the filter element:
See section 9.4
9.4 Changing the spray nozzle and the filter
element
Only the spray nozzles listed in section 12 and the
genuine filter element (part no.: 40 74 922 25,
mesh aperture: 0.8 mm [0. 0315"]) must be used in
this pressure sprayer.
Before disassembling the nozzle attachment,
switch off the pump, unplug the charger from
the charging socket of the device and depressurise
the device! To depressurise the device, with the
pump switched off, hold the spray tube in the
spraying agent tank or in a suitable container for
the spraying agent and operate the shut-off valve
until no more fluid is sprayed.
Changing the spray nozzle or the filter element:
 Rinse the nozzle attachment with clean water.
 Disassemble the nozzle attachment (11).
 Clean the O-rings, the filter element (b) and the
spray nozzle (a) with clean water and a soft
brush. Never use your mouth to blow through
the spray nozzle! Never use hard objects to
clean the nozzles!
 Replace the previous nozzle by the new one or
the previous ball valve filter by the new one.
 Reassemble the components of the nozzle
attachment according to the above figure.
9.5 Information on using the rechargeable
battery
When used properly, the rechargeable battery will
remain in good working order for many years.
It is important to note that the rechargeable battery
should never be fully discharged.
If the operating pressure built by the pump while
spraying drops noticeably and the pump fails to get
the pressure back up to the normal operating level,
stop spraying with the current battery and recharge
the battery.
9 Maintenance, cleaning and storage
If the pressure sprayer with rechargeable battery is
not used for an extended period of time, we
recommend recharging the battery once a month
with the supplied charger. This will prevent the
battery from deep-discharging.
9.6 Replacing the fuse
The replacement glass fuse 5x20 mm 4A (part no.:
00 84 055) can be ordered at your local SOLO
dealer.
Replacing the fuse:
 Release the fuse holder (14) with a screwdriver
(turn it half a turn anti-clockwise) and then pull it
out.
 After inserting a new fuse, slide the fuse holder
back in and lock it by twisting it half a turn
clockwise.
Never use aggressive, acid- or solvent-containing
cleaning agents (gasoline for example).
After cleaning, leave the spraying agent tank open
to dry.
Cleaning the filling strainer, the spray nozzle and
the filter element:
 Rinse the nozzle attachment with clean water.
 Disassemble the nozzle attachment (11).
 Clean the filling strainer, the O-rings, the filter
element and the spray nozzle with clean water
and a soft brush. Never use your mouth to blow
through the spray nozzle! Never use hard
objects to clean the nozzles!
 Reassemble the components of the nozzle
attachment.
If the fuse blows repeatedly, have the device
checked by a specialist SOLO workshop before
returning it into use.
9.7 Greasing the cap gasket
For proper sealing of the spraying agent tank, the
cap gasket must be well greased with silicone
grease.
9.8 Draining the spraying agent tank and
cleaning the spraying agent carrying
parts
Before opening the spraying agent tank and
before disassembling the nozzle attachment,
switch off the pump and depressurise the device!
To depressurise the device, with the pump
switched off, hold the spray tube in the spraying
agent tank or in a suitable container for the spraying agent and operate the shut-off valve until no
more fluid is sprayed.
Cleaning the spraying agent tank:
Drain the solution tank daily (draining into a
suitable container by opening of the drain plug
(18)) after use and thoroughly flush it with water.
Drain the spraying agent tank and all other
spraying agent carrying parts daily after use and
particularly at the end of the spraying season and
thoroughly flush them with clean water.
Any unused spraying agent that is left over in the
device could cause corrosion and hence damage
the device. Special attention must be paid to
wearing parts like spray nozzles, filters and seals.
9.9 Taking the sprayer out of service and
putting it into storage
Prepare the device for storage according to
section 9.8.
Store the device protected from sunlight in a
secure, dry and frost-free location at a maximum
ambient temperature of 35 °C [95 °F].
There must not be any open fires or similar
nearby.
Even when the device is not in use, regularly
recharge the battery once a month with the
supplied charger.
Ensure that the unit cannot be used by
unauthorised persons, in particular children.
Please read and observe the cleaning instructions
supplied with the spraying agent.
Recommendation: Use the special SOLO cleaner
for plant protection sprayers (dosing bottle of
500 ml [approx. 16.9 oz], part no.: 49 00 600).
