Be warned of the dangers of loading your vehicle in excess of its carrying capacity.
It is important to understand that any loads or attachments whether fastened to or placed on a vehicle will
alter the stability or handling characteristics of that vehicle.
Spray tanks or other equipment must be filled only to a level where the gross weight is within the load limit of
the vehicle.
Safety is a primary concern in the design, manufacture, sale, and use of spray tanks and other equipment.
As manufacturers of spray tanks and other equipment we want to confirm to you, our customers, our concern
for safety. We take this opportunity to remind you about the simple, basic and common sense rules of safety

Plumbing (12V Pump)
Connecting to a Sprayer with an existing spray gun;
Cut the sprayer output line from the pump in an easily accessible position, and install the quick release valve.
Connect the delivery hose to the hose reel, cut the hose to a length so that it can be connected to the quick
release valve using the 10mm male hose shank connector.
Connect the remainder of the sprayer output line to the existing spray gun, to the remaining male hose shank
connector.
Direct Connecting to Pump;
Remove pump cover from sprayer.
Connect the delivery hose to the hose reel, cut the hose to a length so that it can be connected, using the hose
clamps provided, to the output elbow on the pump without kinking.
Run the pump with water and check for leaks before refitting the pump cover. Tighten clamps further if required.
Refit the pump cover making sure not to over tighten the pump cover screws, as this may strip the hole of its
thread.
Plumbing (PTO or Engine Driven Pump)
Connect the Hose Reel delivery line to a spare outlet port on the sprayer pressure regulator, secure with hose
clamps provided. Extra regulator outlet ports are available (depending on specification).
9
THEORY OF OPERATION
Spray fluid is placed in the tank where it is drawn through a suction filter and pumped to a control valve. The
excess flow from the valve is returned to the tank via the bypass hose. Fluid at a nominal pressure of 3-25 bar is
pumped to the spray gun via the hose reel.
Pulling the trigger on the spray gun may control the amount of fluid, distance, pattern and size of droplet
transferred to the target, depending on the model of spray gun used.
Adjusting the nozzle on the spray gun may also control the pattern and droplet size, depending on the spray gun
used.
OPERATION
With water in the spray tank;
Unwind the required length of hose from the reel.
Open the dump valve on the regulator, and screw the pressure control knob fully open (counter clockwise).
Turn on the pump,
-12V sprayers;
Switch labelled ‘PUMP’ on the switch box
-PTO sprayers;
PTO lever on tractor
-Engine sprayers;
Pull start or electric start on engine
Ensure hoses and lines are free of kinks and blockages, and let fluid re-circulate to the tank.
Close dump valve on regulator.
Allow time for the air to be expelled from the hoses and lines.
Open a valve, operate the spray gun, and adjust the tip for the required spray pattern.
Screw the control knob in (clockwise) until the desired spraying pressure is reached.
Water should flow evenly out of the spray gun tip.
The nozzle will form the droplets, thus creating the spray.
Shut down procedure;
Open the dump valve on the regulator, and screw the pressure control knob fully open (counter clockwise).
Proceed with cleaning if tank is empty.
Turn off pump.
CAUTION
Prolonged exposure of chemicals to tanks and spraying systems may cause them to prematurely fail. It is
recommended to empty the tank and flush the system three times, with fresh water, at the end of spraying.
10
MAINTENANCE
After Use
At the end of spraying, flush the system three times with fresh water. Finish with a final rinse using C-Dax
Neutralise rinsing solution.
Remove the strainer basket under the lid of the sprayer, rinse and refit.
Remove the main filter element, clean and replace, ensuring that the filter bowl ‘O’ ring is in place, and the bowl
nut is tight.
Clean the outside of the sprayer to remove any spray residue.
Routinely
Check the spray tip patterns for wear, replace if necessary.
Lubricate any moving parts.
Check spray hoses for kinks or damage, replace if necessary.
Annually
Replace spray tips
Filters
Your Hose Reel System is fitted with two-stage filtration consisting of:
a)
Filter basket at the tank inlet, and
b)
Suction filter between the tank and pump.
Check all filters after the first four hours of use, then at the end of each spraying session, more regularly
depending on the water supply and chemicals used.
