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 Viton®
seals which are resistant 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.
WARRANTY
Solo backpack sprayers are covered by Solo’s WARRANTY
(5 years for models 425 & 475, 2 years for Model 425D, 425
LC). Solo manufactured parts which fail due to defective
material or workmanship will be repaired or replaced
without charge. Refer to Warranty sections for consumer
and commercial use, of this Owners Manual, for full details.
MAINTENANCE TIP
Cap gasket is pre-lubricated for improved
sealing. Occasional lubrication is recommended.

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.

PUMP LEVER INSTALLATION
(MODEL 425D, 425LC ONLY)
All hardware necessary for pump lever installation is included
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, 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.

FILLING
FOLD-AWAY PUMP HANDLE*
INSTALLATION (FOR 425 & 475 MODELS ONLY)
1. Remove bolt and nut (A) from pump rod (B).
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 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. (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 wand).
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 sprayer.
Note: To fill the sprayer to its full capacity, set the pressure control valve to the
3 or 4 setting. (425 & 475 models only) Add 10 litres of spray formula mix. Pump the
sprayer handle to prime the pump and fill the pressure cylinder. The volume of liquid
in formula mix tank will appear to decrease as the pressure cylinder is filled. Liquid
will flow through the top of the pressure regulator when the cylinder is completely full.
Add the remaining formula mix to the tank.
Remember that it’s not necessary to completely fill the sprayer
tank each time. Mix only the amount needed to get the job done.
Always read and follow manufacturer’s instructions printed on the
product label. This can save money and help prevent crop and
environmental damage.

SPRAYING
WETTABLE POWDERS & MARKER DYE
Prime the pump with rapid pump strokes. When you feel very firm
resistance, the pressure chamber is filling with liquid.
Avoid use in piston pump sprayers models 425,425D & 425LC.
The Solo models 475 sprayers with a diaphragm pump are
generally resistant to abrasive materials and are
recommended for this purpose.
With repeated piston strokes, the air in the pressure chamber is
slowly compressed. 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.
Note: If you use a wettable powder in your 425 sprayer, be sure it is thoroughly mixed
in the formula solution.
Immediately after use, be sure to remove the piston, clean and
lubricate the Viton® collar with petroleum jelly. Thorough flushing
of 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 and repair accordingly.

Solo Australia warrant the product from the date of purchase, for
a period as stated below. The warranty covers manufacturer’s
defects in material or workmanship. The warranty does not
cover malfunctions due to misuse or due to failure to follow the
instructions in this manual. Any alterations to the product are
to be performed by a Solo Australia approved service agent.

NOTE: When cleaning the sprayer after working with hormone weed killers, follow the
instructions of the herbicide producers. Neutralize with activated charcoal. (Example:
add 1g. of activated charcoal to 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
should be sprayed as the residues of the herbicide may damage susceptible plants.
Cleaning after application of products containing carbolineum, if they are not water
soluble, should be done with a 5% soda lye having a temperature of 40°C. Rinse with
plenty of clean water.
MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE TIPS
To protect the piston, cylinder and Viton® collar, a fine mesh,
stainless steel screen is located on the pressure cylinder inlet.
If you find that your sprayer will not empty the formula tank,
check for a clogged inlet screen (2). The inlet screen is located
at the bottom of the pressure cylinder on the side that faces your
back.
One indication that it needs cleaning is that when you let
go of the pump handle, it “springs” to the down position.
The screen can be cleaned with a small bristle brush or a
discarded toothbrush. See diagram for location of screen.

PISTON PUMP REPAIR KIT (06 10 407-K)
Note: Always wear rubber gloves, safety goggles and
appropriate protective clothing when repairing a sprayer.
Work in a well-ventilated 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.

9.Next, assemble the piston cylinder. First grease the O-ring on
the piston cylinder, being careful not to get any on the valve
plate, and then place the piston cylinder into the pressure
cylinder. Screw the piston cylinder clockwise until it is tight
and the bottom O-ring is no longer seen. When properly
seated the notch on the piston cylinder (G) will line up with
the indent on the pressure cylinder (H).
10.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 12. 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.
