STARTING
USING
It Is Important to test the boom and spray gun with plain
water before attempting actual spraying. This will enable
you to check the sprayer for leaks and to adjust the spray
pattern. If a leak should occur, thread tape may be used
to better seal the fitting.
HOW

YOUR
•
SPRAYER
•
Once the sprayer is connected to a power source
the pump will start whenever a pressure drop is
caused by squeezing the spray gun trigger. A
pressure switch on the pump turns the motor on
when the system pressure drops below 35 psi.

SPRAYER
The spray gun has an adjustable nozzle which allows
the spray pattern to be adjusted from a cone shaped
fine mist to a straight stream.
Do not subject the pump to continuous rapid on and
off cycling (one second intervals) for long periods of
time. This occurs when the spray gun is adjusted for a
very low rate of flow.
Disconnect the sprayer from the power source to
conserve energy from the battery during periods of
idleness. While the resting sprayer is connected, the
pump will run periodically as the system pressure
gradually drops below 35 psi.
Stay clear of flowers, shrubs and evergreen trees
when spraying weed control solutions. Avoid contact
of the solution with these sensitive plants.
The pump will turn of whenever a pressure buildup
to 35 psi is caused by releasing the spray gun
trigger.

CLEANING TANK
•
After each use, fill the tank part way with water, start
the sprayer and allow clear water to be pumped
through the plumbing system and out through the
handgun. Use the handgun to thoroughly wash all
internal parts of the tank and the outside of the tank.
•
Refill the tank about half full with plain water and a
chemical neutralizer and repeat the cleaning instructions above. Flush the entire sprayer with the neutralizing agent. Follow the chemical manufacturers
instructions for disposal of all was h or rinsing water.
CHECK FOR LOOSE FASTENERS
• Before each use make a thorough visual check of
the sprayer for any bolts and nuts which may have
loosened. Retighten any loose bolts and nuts.
CLEANING STRAINER
• Periodically clean the strainer in the end of the intake
hose at the bottom of the tank. Remove the nylon
swivel nut from the hose, pull out the screen and flush
it with clear water.
The sprayer should be winterized before storage by
pumping a 50-50 solution of water and R. V. antifreeze through the entire plumbing. Proper care and
maintenance will prolong the life of the sprayer.
Drain all water out of the sprayer, paying special
attention to the pump and handgun. These items are
especially prone to damage from chemicals and
freezing weather.
