General Safety Instructions
3. Safety of Persons
Read all the instructions. Non-observance of the instructions below
can cause electric shock, fire and or serious personal injuries. The
term „power tool“ used below covers both mains-operated power
tools (with mains lead) and accumulator-operated power tools
(without mains lead).
All local regulations in force must be observed.
a) Be attentive. Pay attention to what you are doing and work
sensibly with a power tool. Do not use the tool if you are
tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication.
Just a moment of inattentiveness while using the tool can lead to
serious injuries.
b) Wear personal safety equipment and always wear safety
goggles. Wearing personal protective equipment, such as
dust mask, non-slip safety shoes, safety helm or ear protection,
depending on the type of power tools, reduces the risk of injury.
Explanation of symbols used
Indicates an immediate danger. Unless avoided,
death or serious injuries will result.
c) Avoid accidental starting-up. Ensure that the switch is in the
"OFF" position before inserting the plug into the socket.
Accidents can occur if you carry the power tool while your finger is
on the switch or if you connect the power tool to the power supply
which it is on.
Indicates tips for use and other particularly useful
d) Remove setting tools or wrenches before switching on the
power tool. A tool or wrench that is in a rotating tool part can
lead to injuries.
Explosion hazard.
e) Do not overestimate your abilities. Ensure that you are
standing securely and have your balance at all times.
This ensures that you can control the tool better in unexpected
Attention: Danger of injury by injection!
f) Wear suitable clothing. Do not wear wide clothing or
jewelry. Keep your hair, clothes and gloves away from
moving parts. Loose clothing, jewelry or long hair can be caught
in moving parts.
1. Workplace
a) Keep your workplace clean and tidy. Untidiness and unlit
working areas can lead to accidents.
g) This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless
they have been given supervision or instruction concerning
use of the appliance by a person responsible for their
safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not
play with the appliance.
b) Never use the tool in hazardous areas that contain
flammable liquids, gases or dusts. Power tools generate sparks
that can ignite the dust or vapors.
c) Keep children and other persons away when using the
power tool. You can lose control of the tool if you are distracted.
2. Electrical Safety
4. Careful Handling and Use of Power Tools
a) The tool plug must fit into the socket. The plug may not be
modified in any form. Do not use adaptor plugs together
a) Do not overload the tool. Use the power tool designed for
the work that you are doing. You work better and safer in the
specified performance range if you use the suitable power tool.
with protective-earthed tools. Unmodified plugs and suitable
sockets reduce the risk of an electric shock.
b) Avoid physical contact with earthed surfaces such as pipes,
heating elements, stoves and refrigerators. The risk through
electric shock increases if your body is earthed.
b) Do not use power tools whose switch is defective. A power
tool that cannot be switched on or off is dangerous and has to be
c) Keep the equipment away from rain and moisture. The
risk of an electric shock increases if water penetrates electrical
c) Remove the plug from the socket before carrying out tool
settings, changing accessories or putting the tool away. This
precautionary measure prevents unintentional starting of the tool.
d) Do not misuse the mains lead by carrying the tool by the
lead, hanging it from the lead or by pulling on the lead to
remove the plug. Keep the lead away from heat, oil, sharp
edges or moving tool parts. Damaged or twisted leads increase
the risk of an electric shock.
d) Store unused power tools so that they are inaccessible
to children. Do not let persons use the tool who are not
familiar with it or who have not read these instructions.
Power tools are dangerous when they are used by inexperienced
e) If you work outdoors, use only extension leads that are
approved for outdoor use. The use of an extension lead that is
suitable for outdoors reduces the risk of an electric shock.
e) Take proper care of your tools. Check whether the moving
parts function trouble-free and do not jam, whether
parts are broken or damaged so that the tool function is
impaired. Have damaged parts repaired before using the tool.
Many accidents have their origin in power tools that have been
Wagner Project Pro 117 - 0418B - Safety Information
maintained badly.
a) Have your tool repaired only by qualified specialist
personnel and only with original spare parts. This ensures
that the tool safety is maintained.
b) If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or it’s service agent or a similarly qualified
person in order to avoid a safety hazard.
Caution! Wear breathing equipment: Paint mist and
solvent vapors are damaging to health. Always wear
breathing equipment and only work in well ventilated
rooms or using supplementary ventilating equipment.
It is advisable to wear working clothing, safty glasses,
ear protection and gloves
Max. operating pressure
Coating substance
Caution against dangers that can arise from the sprayed substance
and observe the text and information on the containers or the
specifications given by the substance manufacturer.
Only use coating materials with a flash point of 21 °C
or above without additional heating.
The flash point is the lowest temperature at which
vapors develop from the coating material.
These vapors are sufficient to form an inflammable
mixture over the air above the coating material.
Do not spray any liquid of unknown hazard potential.
High-pressure hose (safety note)
Electrostatic charging of spray guns and the high-pressure hose
is discharged through the high-pressure hose. For this reason the
electric resistance between the connections of the high-pressure
hose must be equal or lower than 197 kΩ/m (60 kΩ/ft.).
Do not use the unit in work places which are covered
to the explosion protection regulations.
Danger of explosion and fire through
sources of flame during spraying work
In case of high operating pressure, pulling the
trigger can effect a recoil force of up to 15 N.
If you are not prepared for this, your hand can be
thrust backwards or your balance lost. This can lead
to injury.
Continuous stress from this recoil can cause
permanent damage to health.
Max. permissible operating pressure for spray gun, spray gun
accessories and high-pressure hose may not fall short of the
maximum operating pressure of 200 bar (20 MPa) stated on the
Explosion protection
There may be no sources of flame such as, for
example, open fires, smoking of cigarettes, cigars or
tobacco pipes, sparks, glowing wires, hot surfaces,
etc. in the vicinity.
For reasons of function, safety and durability, only
use genuine WAGNER high-pressure hoses and spray
nozzles. For overview see „Spare parts lists“.
Connecting the device
A properly earthed socket outlet with earthing contact must be
used for connection. The connection must be equipped with a
residual current protective device with INF ≤ 30 mA.
Electrostatic charging (formation of
sparks or flame)
Setting up the unit

Vapors containing solvents may not be allowed to
build up in the area of the device.
Setting up the unit on the side a way from the sprayed
Danger object.
A minimum distance of 5 m between the unit and spray
gun is to be maintained.
Under certain circumstances, electrostatic charging
can occur on the unit due to the rate of flow of the
coating material when spraying. On discharging this
can result in the emergence of sparks or fire. It is
therefore necessary that the unit is always earthed through the
electrical installation. The connection must take place through a
correctly earthed two-pole-and-earth socket outlet.
Recoil of spray gun
Flash point
Health protection
Secure device and spray gun
For secure handling of Airless high-pressure spraying units the
following safety regulations are to be observed:
All hoses, fittings, and filter parts must be secured before
operating spray pump. Unsecured parts can eject at great force
or leak a high pressure fluid stream causing severe injury.
Always secure the spray gun when mounting or dismounting the
tip and in case of interruption to work.
5. Service
Good natural or artificial ventilation must be ensured in order to
avoid the risk of explosion or fire and damage to health during spray
f) Use the power tool, accessories, insert tools, etc. in
accordance with these instructions and in a fashion
specified for this special tool type. Take the working
conditions and the activity to be carried out into
consideration. The use of power tools for purposes other than the
intended ones can lead to dangerous situations.
Wagner Project Pro 117 - 0418B
When working outdoors:
Vapors containing solvents may not be allowed to
blow toward the unit.
Note the direction of the wind.
Set the unit up in such a way that vapors containing
solvents do not reach the unit and build up there.

A) The key to a good paint job is an even coating over the entire
surface. Keep your arm moving at a constant speed and keep
the spray gun at a constant distance from the surface. The
best spraying distance is 25 to 30 cm between the spray tip
and the surface.
B) Keep the spray gun at right angles to the surface. This means
moving your entire arm back and forth rather than just flexing
your wrist.
C) Keep the spray gun perpendicular to the surface, otherwise
one end of the pattern will be thicker than the other.
D) Trigger gun after starting the stroke. Release the trigger
before ending the stroke. The spray gun should be moving
when the trigger is pulled and released. Overlap each stroke
by about 30%. This will ensure an even coating.
When finished spraying, perform Pressure Relief
If the spray pattern becomes distorted or stops
completely while the gun is triggered, follow these
1. Release the trigger and lock the gun off. Rotate the reversible
tip arrow 180º so that the point of the arrow is toward the rear
of the gun (see figure 12).
When attaching the tip guard to the gun, align the tip
guard as shown in figure 9 (a), then tighten by hand (b).
4. Slide the PressureTrac™ to its highest setting. The paint hose
should stiffen as material begins to flow through it.
5. Unlock the spray gun.
6. Trigger the spray gun to bleed air out of the hose.
7. When material reaches the spray tip, spray a test area to check
the spray pattern.
8. Use the lowest pressure setting necessary to get a good spray
pattern (A). If the pressure is set too high, the spray pattern
will be too light. If the pressure is set too low, tailing will
appear or the paint will spatter out in blobs rather than in a
fine spray (B).
Only follow these instructions when using watersoluble materials. If you are using solvent-based spray,
follow the Cleanup and Long-Term Storage steps.

your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to
the terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter E or by the
earth symbol or coloured green or green and yellow.
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the
terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured brown.
Should the moulded plug have to be replaced, never re-use the
defective plug or attempt to plug it into a different 13 A socket. This
could result in an electric shock.
Should it be necessary to exchange the fuse in the plug only use
fuses approved by ASTA in accordance with BS 1362. Only 13 Amp
fuses may be used.
To ensure that the fuse and fuse carrier are correctly mounted
please observe the provided markings or colour coding in the plug.
After changing the fuse, always make sure that the fuse carrier is
correctly inserted. With out the fuse carrier, it is not permissible to
use the plug.
The correct fuses and fuse carriers are available from your local
electrical supplies stockist.
