Failure to comply with the safety notifications and instructions provided may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. The term "power tool" used below covers both mainsoperated power tools (with mains lead) and accumulator-operated power tools (without mains lead). 1. Work area safety a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents. b) Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes. c) Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control. 2. Electrical Safety a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never AUS modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock. b) Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded. c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock. d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock. e) When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock. f) If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock. 3. Personal safety a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury. b) Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries. c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before connecting to power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energising power tools that have the switch on invites accidents. d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury. e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations. f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts. 1 Airless Sprayer Plus AUS 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. 4. Power tool use and care a) Do not force the power tool. Use correct power tool for your application. The correct power tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed. b) Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired. c) Disconnect the plug from the power source and/ or the battery pack from the power tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally. d) Store idle power tools out of reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users. e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other condition that may affect the power tool's operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools. f) Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in accordance with these instructions, taking into account the working conditions and the work to be performed.

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, safety glasses, ear protection and gloves Flammable materials Do not use the spray guns to spray flammable substances. Danger Explosion protection Danger 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 Danger 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. Electrostatic charging (formation of sparks or flame) Danger 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 twopole-and-earth socket outlet. Ventilation Good natural or artificial ventilation must be ensured in order to avoid the risk of explosion or fire and damage to health during spray work. Secure device and spray gun 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 nozzle and in case of interruption to work. Airless Sprayer Plus Recoil of spray gun Danger 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. operating pressure 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 unit. AUS 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. Setting up the unit Danger 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. Do not spray any liquid of unknown hazard potential. High-pressure hose (safety note) Attention, danger of injury by injection! Wear and tear and kinks as well as usage that is not appropriate to the purpose Danger of the device can cause leakages to form in the high-pressure hose. Liquid can be injected into the skin through a leakage. High-pressure hoses must be checked thoroughly before they are used. Replace any damaged high-pressure hose immediately. Never repair defective high-pressure hoses yourself! Avoid sharp bends and folds: the smallest bending radius is about 20 cm. Do not drive over the high-pressure hose. Protect against sharp objects and edges. Never pull on the high-pressure hose to move the device. Do not twist the high-pressure hose. Do not put the high-pressure hose into solvents. Use only a wet cloth to wipe down the outside of the hose. Lay the high-pressure hose in such a way as to ensure that it cannot be tripped over. Electrostatic charging of spray guns and the highpressure 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.). For reasons of function, safety and durability, only use genuine WAGNER high-pressure hoses and spray nozzles. For overview see „Spare parts lists“. The risk of damage rises with the age of the high-pressure hose. Wagner recommends replacing highpressure hoses after 6 years. i i When working indoors: Vapors containing solvents may not be allowed to build up in the area of the device.

SPRAY Approximately 25 - 30 cm Wrong way Right way PRIME l 1) Switch the pump ON and turn the PRIME/SPRAY knob to SPRAY. 2) When the motor shuts off, unlock the spray gun and spray a test area to check the spray pattern. When enough pressure has built up in the hose, the motor will shut off automatically. The motor will cycle on and off automatically as it needs pressure. Keep the spray gun perpendicular to the surface, otherwise one end of the pattern will be thicker than the other. TIP: 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. Light Coat Heavy Coat Light Coat Good spray pattern Bad spray pattern (tailing) If your pattern is tailing, your spray tip might have an obstruction, your spray gun filter might be clogged or your spray tip might be worn or color is diluted too few. Refer to Spraying Troubleshooting on the next page. Do not flex wrist while spraying. TIP: The spray gun should be triggered by turning it on and off with each stroke. Do not trigger the gun during the middle of a stroke. This will result in an uneven spray and splotchy coverage. Proper way to trigger the spray gun Spraying technique The key to a good paint job is an even coating over the entire surface. This is done by using even strokes. Follow the TIPS, below. TIP: Keep stroke even 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. Start stroke Even coat throughout Approximately 25-30cm Keep stroke smooth and at an even speed. 8 Approximately 25-30cm Pull trigger Keep steady Release trigger End stroke ADDITIONAL TIPS Overlap each stroke by about 30%. This will ensure an even coating. When you stop painting, follow PRESSURE RELIEF PROCEDURE and unplug electrical cord. Keep the hopper lid placed on the hopper during spraying. This will prevent debris from falling into your spray material. IF YOU EXPECT TO BE AWAY FROM YOUR SPRAYER FOR MORE THAN ONE HOUR, FOLLOW THE SHORT-TERM STORAGE PROCEDURE DESCRIBED IN THE STORAGE SECTION OF THIS MANUAL (page 12). Airless Sprayer Plus SPRAYING TROUBLESHOOTING The following is a short list of minor difficulties you might encounter while spraying. If any of these occur, it will reduce the flow of material, making your spray pattern poor, or material will fail to spray from the gun. Follow the guidelines on this page to correct any one of these problems. Unclogging the spray tip Unclogging the spray gun filter This filter must be cleaned every time you use your sprayer. When using thicker paints, the filter might need to be cleaned more often. 1) Perform Pressure Relief Procedure (page 6). 2) Remove the closure by turning it (take care not to lose the spring). Filter top (tapered end) WARNING Do not attempt to unclog or clean the tip with your finger. Filter CAUTION Do not use a needle or other sharp pointed instrument to clean the tip. The hard tungsten carbide can chip. If the spray pattern becomes distorted or stops completely while the gun is triggered, follow these steps: 1) Turn the pump off, and release the trigger and lock the gun off. AUS Hole Spring Closure 3) Remove the filter from the spray gun housing and clean with the appropriate cleaning solution (warm, soapy water) When cleaning filter, look for sediments in the spraying material you are using. Refer to Paint Straining, (page 6). O 2) Rotate the reversible tip arrow 180° so that the point of the arrow is toward the rear of the gun. Under pressure, the spray tip may be very difficult to turn. Turn the PRIME/SPRAY knob to PRIME and trigger the gun. This will relieve pressure and the tip will turn more easily. 3) Turn the PRIME/SPRAY knob to SPRAY. 4) Inspect the filter for holes (see Hole picture, above). Replace if holes are found. CAUTION NEVER POKE THE FILTER WITH A SHARP INSTRUMENT! 5) Replace the cleaned filter, tapered end first, into the gun housing. The tapered end of the filter must be loaded properly into the gun. Improper assembly will result in a plugged tip or no flow from the gun. 6) Insert the spring in the closure and tighten the closure on the gun housing again. Uunclogging the inlet filter 4) Unlock the gun and squeeze the trigger, pointing the gun at a scrap piece of wood or cardboard. This allows pressure in the spray hose to blow out the obstruction. When the nozzle is clean, paint will come out in a high pressure stream. If paint still will not spray from the spray tip, follow the steps on the next column. 5) Release the trigger and lock the gun off. 6) Reverse the tip so the arrow points foward again (SPRAY position). 1) Perform Pressure Relief Procedure, (page 6). 2) Empty the hopper of all spraying material (see Emptying the Hopper, page 10). 3) Remove the inlet filter from the hopper.
