WARNING:
Chemicals can be harmful to individuals and the environment if improperly used. In addition, some chemicals are caustic, corrosive or
poisonous and should be avoided. Read warnings and chemical manufacturers’ instructions. Solo high density polyethylene sprayers are
fitted with chemical resistant seals which are compatible to a wide variety of agricultural and household chemicals; however, care should be
exercised to ensure that sprayer components are clean, functioning properly, and in a good state of repair before and during use.
If in doubt about a particular chemical, check with the manufacturer. If you suspect or observe indications that the material may be
unsafe in a Solo sprayer...STOP. DO NOT USE OR APPLY CHEMICAL. ALWAYS WEAR RUBBER GLOVES, GOGGLES, AND
APPROPRIATE PROTECTIVE CLOTHING!

Read and follow operating instructions.
Do not fill with, use, or spray flammable materials.
Do not modify sprayer.
Never spray in the direction of humans, animals or property which might be injured or damaged by spray formula.
Do not use disinfectants, solvents or impregnating agents unless first tested to ensure they are not harmful to the
environment or sprayer.
Do not use liquids with a temperature above 110°F (43°C).
Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent contact with chemical agents.
Rinse and clean sprayer thoroughly after using. Disposal of contaminated rinse should be in accordance with applicable
ordinances. Observe the precautionary instructions of the chemical manufacturer.
Do not use any acid (including citrus) or caustic chemicals. For bleach solutions, try our Solo 475-B or 475B Deluxe sprayers.
Remember that a sprayer with liquid is a significant amount of weight (8 lbs. per gallon). Do not climb when wearing
the sprayer. Use caution when bending, leaning or walking. Bend at the knees rather than the waist.
During sprayer operation, the pressure cylinder (#4400240) contains compressed air and liquid. Compressed air
and liquid under pressure are inherently dangerous. Before making adjustments on sprayers fitted with a pressure
regulating valve assembly (#4800182) located on the pressure cylinder or any other repair or inspection of any
sprayer, be sure to relieve pressure through the shut-off valve and wand.

PUMP LEVER INSTALLATION: All hardware necessary for pump lever installation is included
D
with the sprayer. The pump lever (C) should be installed as follows: place lever handle (C) onto
the shaft (A). Align bolt holes and install the two bolts (E) and washers (F); then tighten. To install pump
lever on the opposite side on a Diaphragm Pump sprayer, remove the stop plate (D) and washer,
install the pump lever as above. The stop plate (D) should be mounted on the inner bolt hole with
the closed end of the stop plate pointing downward on the opposite side of the pump shaft.
FOLD-AWAY PUMP HANDLE INSTALLATION (FOR SELECT MODELS ONLY):
B
A
1. Remove bolt and nut from pump handle.
2. Slide handle assembly over the pump rod and align the holes so that the rear (elbow) portion
of the handle points up and slightly forward (approximately 45 degrees) and away from the
Solo logo. Reinstall bolt and locknut. Pump handle can be installed on the opposite side of
the sprayer for right hand pumping. (For Diaphragm Pump Sprayer, stop plate will need to be
relocated to the left side.)
3. The handle can be rotated to either down (pumping) or up (storage) positions. Note: The handle
swings away from the sprayer, then up or down as desired. The spray wand attaches to the
clamps on the handle assembly for storage (does not apply to the brass or stainless steel
wands).
SHOULDER STRAP INSTALLATION:
The top of the shoulder straps are pre-attached to the sprayer by means of a buckle or pin. The
lower end of the straps are attached by fastening the strap hooks to the metal frame between where
frame exits the plastic tank and where the frame makes a bend.
REGULATING THE PRESSURE: (FOR DELUXE MODELS ONLY)
The Solo backpack sprayer is equipped with a built-in regulator to control output pressure. This
regulator is operator adjustable. Make adjustments prior to filling tank. To adjust the regulator,
remove the tank cap and the filter basket. Look inside the
spray tank; you will see the top of the regulator. There are 4 fingers on the regulator
knob. The finger farthest to the left is #1; to the right is #4. They are numbered 1, 2,
3, 4. 1 = 15 psi, 2 = 30 psi, 3 = 45 psi, 4 = 60 psi. The higher the pressure, the more
chemical applied from the sprayer in a given amount of time, but the droplets will be
smaller with more drift. If the spray pressure must be changed, excess pressure in
the pressure cylinder must be released back into the tank through the spray tube.
To adjust, push down on the knob and rotate to align the desired number with the
alignment pin. To operate the 425-DELUXE and 435 at higher than 60 psi, first release
the excess pressure and then replace the pressure control valve with the optional
plug (#4200215).

FILLING:

Mix the spray formula and the proper volume of water in a separate container. Pour
the mix through the filter basket in the tank opening. This keeps debris from entering
the sprayer. Pump the sprayer handle to prime the pump and pressurize the pressure cylinder. The volume of liquid in the
sprayer tank will appear to decrease as the pressure cylinder is pressurized. Remember that it’s not necessary to completely
fill the sprayer tank each time. Mix only the amount needed to get the job done. Chemicals should not be stored in the
sprayer.
Always read and carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions printed on the product label. This can save money and help
prevent injury and crop and environmental damage.

*Brass adjustable nozzle and Speed Tip nozzle are not standard items on all Solo sprayers but each may be

WARNING: Handling the brass parts of this product will expose you to lead, a chemical known by the State of
California to cause birth defects and other reproductive harm and/or cancer. Wash hands after handling.
SPRAYING:
Prime the pump with rapid pump strokes. When you feel very firm resistance, the pressure chamber is filling with
liquid. With repeated piston strokes, the air in the pressure chamber is slowly compressed. In a safe area, point
the wand upward and press the shut-off valve lever spraying for 10 seconds or until no air and only liquid is coming out. This will bleed all of the air out of the hose and wand. By pressing the hand lever, the valve opens, and liquid is
forced through the nozzle. The shut-off valve has a retaining clip which keeps the valve in the “OPEN” position for
continuous operation. Pump using the end of the pump handle, as it is less fatiguing. The volume of liquid delivered varies
with the working pressure which should be as high as needed to ensure an adequate spray pattern for each individual
application.
NOTE: Should the pressure drop very quickly, drain the tank completely and pump without liquid. By this procedure, the air
chamber is refilled with the required volume of air. It is advisable to pump the tank completely empty from time to time.

WETTABLE POWDERS:
MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE TIPS:
Avoid use in piston pump sprayers models 425, 425Deluxe, 425-HD, 425-L, 435, 425-PAF, 473-P! The Solo
models 475-B, 475-Deluxe, 475-B Deluxe, 475-PAF, 473D, 473-ECS, 478 and 485 sprayers with a diaphragm
pump are generally resistant to abrasive materials and are
recommended for this purpose. Note: If you use a wettable
powder in your 425, 435 or 473-P sprayer, be sure that it is
thoroughly mixed in the formula solution. Immediately after
use, be sure to remove the piston and clean and lubricate
the Viton® collar with Solo Superior Grease* or petroleum
jelly. Thorough flushing of the sprayer will extend the life of
its working parts. If you use wettable powders in the piston
pump sprayer, be sure to inspect regularly for seepage
around the piston, lubricate and/or repair accordingly.

CLEANING:
• After spraying, clean the tank thoroughly. If some spray
liquid is left inside, drain tank completely.
• Pumping causes air to be taken in and the remaining
liquid to be discharged. Pump until liquid and air are
coming out through the nozzle.
• Refill tank with a few quarts of clean, soapy water and
pump the water out as explained above (if necessary,
repeat this procedure several times).
• If the shut-off valve is removed, the pump can be
flushed quickly. Improper spray distribution is the result of
a clogged nozzle, which is easily removed and cleaned.
• Soap and water may also be used to clean tank.
• Do not use aggressive cleaning agents or abrasives.
• Follow the recommendations of the chemical
manufacturer for disposal of waste water and
chemicals.
• Activated charcoal in liquid or other form may be used to
absorb chemicals in tanks or spills.
• After operation, the sprayer should be stored away from
direct sunlight to prevent UV damage.
• After removing the pump or when mounting a new Viton®
collar, treat both the collar and the piston with waterresistant grease.*
• Before winter, drain all liquid in tank, lines and air
chamber. (See “Cleaning.”) Leave shut-off valve
locked in the “open” position to prevent freezing.
• For service, visit our website to locate your nearest Solo
dealer. Always insist on original Solo spare parts.
• Regularly inspect hose, wand, pump, tank and shut-off
valve for wear, damage or leaks. Repair promptly.
• Occasionally lubricate cap gasket.*
NOTE: When cleaning the sprayer after working with
hormone weedkillers, follow the instructions of the
herbicide producers. Neutralize with activated charcoal.
(Example: add 0.35 oz./1 g. of activated charcoal to 1.7
pint/1 liter of water and leave this detergent in the tank and
the lines approximately for 24 hours.) This is very important
if other chemicals will be sprayed as the residues of the
herbicide may damage susceptible plants. Cleaning after
application of products containing carbolineum is
imperative.
If the chemicals are not water soluble,
cleaning should be done with a 5% soda lye having a
temperature of 104°F (40°C). Rinse with plenty of clean
water.
Avoid excessive wear and prolong sprayer life by:
1) Regular lubrication of Viton® collar, cylinder and piston
with water-resistant grease.*
2) Prompt and thorough cleaning and flushing of sprayer.
Soap and water work well.
*Use Solo Superior Grease (#9850-P). Petroleum jelly may also be used.

Pliers, Hammer, 13mm Socket or Wrench, T-25 Torx Screwdriver, Grease or Petroleum Jelly, 2X4 Piece of wood 18” long
1. Using a 13mm socket wrench
remove the handle bolts, and set
aside. Lay unit on its back with
pump assembly facing you. See
figure 1. Loosen hose clamp (E).
Pull off sprayer hose. Caution:
There may be liquid inside the
hose and pressure cylinder even
when the tank is empty. Wear
protective gloves. Next, remove
the nut and bolt from protective
cap, and remove cap (C). Rotate
the pump shaft to access the two
lever bolts in the center (B). Using
a 6mm allen head wrench, remove
them. Pull the piston (F) out of the
piston cylinder (D).
2. To remove the piston cylinder
assembly, turn the cylinder counter
clockwise when viewing from the
bottom. Figure 2. Caution: The
piston cylinder has sharp edges.
3. Check the outside of the piston
and inside ot the cylinder for
scratches. If the piston or cylinder
are scratched, replace with part#
0610409-K (piston) or part#
4073190 (cylinder). Figure 3.
6. Install a new valve plate and
firmly reseat the retaining pin using
needle nose pliers. Figure 6.

4. To replace the Viton® collar,
push it off the top of the piston with
your thumb. Figure 4. Install the
new collar on the piston onto the
form fitted sides.
5. Remove the valve plate and
O-rings from the outside of the
piston cylinder. Install the new
valve plate and the two O-rings
making sure the O-rings seat in the
grooves. Finally, inside the piston
cylinder you will find a second
valve plate. Using needle nose
pliers, pull out the red or orange
pin and remove the valve plate.
Figure 5.
Figure 4.
Figure 5.
7. If the sprayer was leaking at
the pressure cylinder, it may
be necessary to remove the
pressure cylinder. First, unscrew
the pressure regulator control,
if equipped. Remove the large
clamp at the bottom of the cylinder.
Using a block of wood and a large
hammer, forcefully hit the top of
the pressure cylinder, driving the
assembly through the bottom of
the tank. Figure 7. Replace and
lubricate the O-ring at the bottom
of the pressure cylinder, then
reinstall the pressure cylinder using
the block of wood and hammer.
Reattach clamp.
8. Next, assemble the piston
cylinder. First, lubricate the O-rings
on the piston cylinder, being careful
not to get any on the valve plate.
Screw the piston cylinder clockwise
into the pressure cylinder until it
is tight and the bottom O-ring is
no longer seen. Figure 8. When
properly seated the notch on the
piston cylinder (G) will line up with
the indent on the pressure cylinder
(H). Figure 9.
9. Apply a light coat of grease to
the inside of the piston cylinder wall
and on the Viton® collar, and then
re-install the piston into the piston
cylinder. Figure 10. To insert the
piston, tilt at a slight angle with
the leading edge of the Viton®
collar placed over the slot. When
seated, install the 6mm Allen Head
bolts through lever base into shaft.
Replace the protective cap and
tighten the nut and bolt. Reinstall
the handle. Replace the hose and
black hose clamp making sure it is
firmly secured.
Note: Always wear rubber gloves, safety goggles and appropriate
protective clothing when repairing a sprayer. Work in a wellventilated area. Prior to repair, flush unit with water by filling,
then spraying the water into an appropriate container or area.
Ensure that all pressure is released by locking the shut-off valve
in the open position. Once a repair is completed, fill the unit with
clean water, pressurize, and check for leaks. If the sprayer leaks,
DO NOT USE. Repair leaks and recheck.
