TASK FORCE TIP®
A. INTRODUCTION
TASK FORCE TIP ULTIMATIC 125. The nozzle you have purchased
is one of your primary tools in saving life and property. It has been
manufactured with great care to give you the finest performance
possible. All components are of top quality and extremely rugged.
With regular inspection and maintenance it will serve you for many
years. This publication is intended for those who prefer to perform
service on their own equipment. Factory service is available and
encouraged, and repair time seldom exceeds 24 hours in our
facility. Factory serviced nozzles are repaired by experienced
technicians, and fully tested before being returned. Task Force
Tips assumes no liability, expressed or implied, for damage to
equipment or injury to personnel that is a result of user service or
improper usage, beyond that of repair or replacement.
AFTER ANY MAINTENANCE OR SERVICE, THE NOZZLE MUST
BE INSPECTED FOR PROPER OPERATION AND FUNCTION
PER 2.0 FLOW CHARACTERISTICS AND 9.0 INSPECTION
CHECKLIST IN "TFT HANDHELD AUTOMATIC NOZZLE
INSTRUCTIONS" (LIN-030). REQUEST ADDITIONAL COPIES
FROM FACTORY IF NEEDED.
ANY NOZZLE THAT FAILS THE INSPECTION
WARNING CHECKLIST IS UNSAFE AND MUST HAVE
THE PROBLEM CORRECTED BEFORE USE. OPERATING A
NOZZLE THAT FAILS ANY OF THE ABOVE INSPECTIONS IS A
MISUSE OF THIS EQUIPMENT.
B. GENERAL INFORMATION
1.) THREADED JOINTS have been secured using Loctite
#271 brand thread locking adhesive. Disassembly requires a
minimal application of heat with a oxyacetylene torch to break
the bond. The threads should be heated to approximately 450
F. Excessive heat application will cause damage to adjacent
seals and labels. Replacement parts must be reinstalled using
Loctite #271, or equivalent. Small vials of Loctite for field
service are available; order part # V5010, LOCTITE MINI
DISPENSER.
2.) LUBRICANTS: If parts are disassembled in an area where
o-rings are present, re-assemble using DOW #112 High
Performance Silicone Grease on all o-rings and surfaces that
the o-rings contact. If nozzle is not disassembled, Break Free
CLP (Spray or Liquid) can be used as described below:
a.) Spray clearance between SLIDER [17] and VALVE
ASSEMBLY [12].
b.) Spray clearance between SHAPER WITH BUMPER [54]
and BARREL CONE ASSEMBLY [47].
c.) Spray valve discs, then cycle the VALVE HANDLE [2] a
few times to spread lubricant into clearances.
d.) Spray lubricant down the front end of the nozzle through
the hole in the shaft.
e.) Spray ball race through clearance between coupling and
valve.
AEROSOL LUBRICANTS CONTAIN
SOLVENTS THAT CAN SWELL O-RINGS IF
APPLIED IN EXCESS. THE SWELLING CAN INHIBIT
OPERATION OF THE MOVING PARTS.
When used in moderation, as directed, the solvents quickly
evaporate without adversely swellings the o-rings. For more

lubrication information see the Task Force Tips Field
Lubrication Procedure document #LIT-106.
3.) LABEL REPLACEMENT: If labels become damaged,
remove old labels with razor knife. Remove adhesive with
acetone or methyl ethyl ketone. Surface must be clean, dry and
free from grease. Carefully apply new label.
4.) ORDERING PARTS: Always specify the serial number of
the nozzle when ordering parts. The number is found on the
raised rim of the SHAPER GUIDE [30]. Be sure to use complete
DESCRIPTION and ORDER #, as printed on the parts list. All
requests for couplings must specify thread size. Pricing
information will be given at time of order.
C. COUPLING SERVICE
1.) GENERAL: Occasional replacement of hose gaskets is
recommended. Replace GASKET GRABBER [9] if severe
impact has caused damage.
2.) COUPLING REMOVAL: Remove PORT PLUG [19] from
side of VALVE ASSEMBLY [12]. Stand nozzle upright with
bumper down and rotate coupling back and forth to allow (28)
3/16" STAINLESS STEEL BALLS [18] to drop out. When all
balls are out of the groove, the coupling can be removed.
Remove GASKET GRABBER [9] debris screen and O-RING127 [10] from the coupling. End pressure is needed to remove
and install coupling balls.
3.) COUPLING INSTALLATION: Place O-RING-127 [10] onto
the rear groove on valve body. Place the GASKET GRABBER
[9] debris screen onto the valve body, raised end in. Put the
coupling on the valve and load balls into the ballgroove
through the port in the valve. Insertion of the balls is easier if
the coupling is rotated slightly back and forth as the balls are
loaded. Insert PORT PLUG [19] into port on side of VALVE
ASSEMBLY [12].
4.) TIP ONLY BASE SERVICE: The TIP ONLY BASE [26] is
retained to the front end by threads which are retained by
Loctite. Apply heat to the knurled rib nearest the front of the
nozzle. Damage to seals and labels can be reduced by
protecting them with a wet cloth. The TIP ONLY BASE [26] can
now be unscrewed. Remove and replace O-RINGS [10 and
16]. Clean all threads, apply Loctite to threads and screw
together.
5.) BOLT-ON PISTOL GRIP REMOVAL: PISTOL GRIP [21] is
held on by a SOCKET HEAD CAP SCREW [22]. Remove screw
with a 5/16" Allen wrench. To reinstall, clean thread and apply
Loctite #271. Tighten screw to 20 ft-lbs.
D. VALVE SERVICE PROCEDURE
Tools Required:
3/32" Allen (hex) Wrench
3/16" Allen (hex) Wrench
Loctite #271 Thread Locking Adhesive
Oxyacetylene Torch

January 1995, And Before Serial Number TFTB-166900, Consult Service Department For Previous Edition Of This Document.
18 x 1/2 BUTTON HEAD SCREWS [4] from VALVE HANDLE
[2] using 3/16" Allen wrench. Remove CAM PIN [3] and
SAFETY PIN [7]. The handle may now be pulled up and off.
Service to interior valve parts should be done prior to
installing new handle.
b.) SLIDER AND SEAL REMOVAL: Remove #10-32 x 3/16"
SOCKET SET SCREWS [14] from VALVE ASSEMBLY [12],
using 3/32" Allen wrench. Unscrew front portion of nozzle
from valve. SLIDER [17] is pulled out from front of valve.
Remove and discard O-RINGS [11, 15 and 16].
2.) VALVE ASSEMBLY SEQUENCE
a.) SLIDER AND SEAL INSTALLATION: Insert O-RINGS
[11, 15 and 16] into proper grooves. Lubricate and insert
SLIDER [17] into valve, aligning groove with corresponding
holes in handle.
b.) HANDLE INSTALLATION: Insert (1) each SPRING [8]
and 3/16 DIA. TORLON BALL [6] into lugs in handle, then
snap handle into place, with offset holes FORWARD.
Carefully align the groove on SLIDER [17] with front offset
hole in disc and offset hole in handle. Start SAFETY PIN [7]
into offset hole in handle. Push down into engagement with
groove in slider, until head of SAFETY PIN [7] is flush with
handle. Repeat procedure with CAM PIN [3]. Loctite (2)
5/16-18 x 1/2" BUTTON HEAD SCREWS [4], and insert
through lower handle holes. Thread each into corresponding
center disc hole. Tighten both 5/16-18 x 1/2" BUTTON HEAD
SCREWS [4] securely. Handle should snap firmly and
smoothly into all detent positions and SLIDER [17] should
move back and forth.
c.) VALVE SHUTOFF ADJUSTMENT: Shutoff sealing of
valve is adjusted by the threads between the valve body and
the front portion of the nozzle. While holding the VALVE
HANDLE [2] against stops in the OFF position, screw front
end into valve body until contact with valve plug is felt.
Actuate the handle to the ON position then, screw the front
end assembly in 1/12 of a turn further to give valve shutoff
compression. Replace #10-32 x 3/16" SOCKET SET
SCREWS [14].
d.) VALVE ADJUSTMENT FOR SEVERE COLD: To help
prevent hose line freezing in cold climates, the valve may be
adjusted for intentional leakage by unscrewing the front end
slightly. The valve may then be returned to normal
adjustment during warm weather as stated above.

ASSEMBLY IS UNDER PRELOAD.
Service to this assembly requires special tooling and training. In
the event that this should need service, please return the complete
nozzle to the factory for repairs, or replace the entire barrel
assembly.
1.) FRONT END DISASSEMBLY SEQUENCE
a.) SHAPER REMOVAL: The rubber bumper and stream
shaper are molded together as a single unit SHAPER WITH
BUMPER [54]. The shaper is attached to the SHAPER GUIDE
[30] by a threaded joint that is retained by Loctite #271. Grip
rear portion of nozzle in vise with padded jaws. Direct a hot
narrow flame around the rear portion of the shaper. Heat for
approximately 20 seconds, being careful not to damage the
bumper or labels (a wet rag wrapped around these areas will
help). Use a strap wrench to unscrew the shaper from the
shaper guide. Remove the shaper. Inside the shaper are (46)
1/8" DIA. NYLON BALLS [53], some of which will fall free as it
is removed. If the shaper is to be reused, clean ball track and
replace QUADX-4225 [52]. Service to remaining front end
parts must be done before reinstalling shaper.
b.) SHAPER GUIDE REMOVAL: The SHAPER GUIDE [30]
may be serviced by removing the (4) 7/32" DIA. TORLON
BALLS [32]. The SHAPER GUIDE [30] can then be removed
from the BARREL ASSEMBLY [33 or 36]. The balls are
intended as a "fuse" to prevent permanent damage to
BARREL ASSEMBLY [33 or 36]. In the event of severe impact
they will shear off. The pattern control however will remain
functional by merely sliding back and forth.
2.) FRONT END ASSEMBLY SEQUENCE
a.) SHAPER GUIDE INSTALLATION: Slide SHAPER GUIDE
[30] over BARREL ASSEMBLY [33 or 36]. Insert (4) 7/32"
DIA. TORLON BALLS [32].
b.) SHAPER INSTALLATION: Install QUADX-4225 [52] in
front groove of SHAPER WITH BUMPER [54]. Grease the
seal and ball groove heavily. Place (46) 1/8" NYLON BALLS
[53] into greased ballgroove. Apply Loctite #271 to male
thread on SHAPER GUIDE [30]. Start shaper onto shaper
guide threads, screw down until threads bottom.
