Before using sprayer with chemicals, fill sprayer with fresh water to assure that
you have it properly assembled; pressurize and practice spraying. Also, check for
any leaks at this time. When thoroughly familiar with the sprayer operation, follow
normal operating procedures.
Ensure all pressure in the sprayer is relieved by locking the shut-off valve in the
open position.
Avoid contact with chemicals.
Always wear rubber gloves, safety goggles and appropriate protective
clothing.
Work in a well ventilated area.
Individuals should be trained in the proper use of this sprayer, chemical handling procedures, and first aid/emergency care. Where
training is not available, individuals should study and follow the procedures detailed in this manual.
WARNING:
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. DO NOT USE OR APPLY CHEMICAL. ALWAYS WEAR RUBBER GLOVES, GOGGLES, AND APPROPRIATE
PROTECTIVE CLOTHING!

Do not fill with, use, or spray flammable materials.
Do not modify sprayer.
Never spray in the direction of humans, animals or property which might be injured or damaged by spray formula.
Do not use disinfectants, solvents or impregnating agents unless first tested to ensure they are not harmful to the
environment or sprayer.
Do not use liquids with a temperature above 110°F (43°C).
Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent contact with chemical agents.
Rinse and clean sprayer thoroughly after using. Disposal of contaminated rinse should be in accordance with
applicable ordinances. Observe the precautionary instructions of the chemical manufacturer.
DO NOT USE ANY ACID (INCLUDING CITRUS) OR CAUSTIC CHEMICALS (INCLUDING BLEACH).
Remember that a sprayer with liquid is a significant amount of weight (8 lbs. per gallon). Use caution when
bending, leaning or walking. Bend at the knees rather than the waist.
During sprayer operation, the pressure cylinder (#4400240) contains compressed air and liquid. Compressed air and
liquid under pressure are inherently dangerous. Before making adjustments on sprayers fitted with a pressure
regulating valve body (#4074323) or control knob (#4074344) located on the pressure cylinder or any other repair or
inspection, of any sprayer be sure to relieve pressure through the shut-off valve and wand.

PUMP LEVER INSTALLATION: 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.
FOLD-AWAY PUMP HANDLE* INSTALLATION (FOR DELUXE MODELS ONLY):
1. Remove bolt and nut (A) from pump rod (B).
B
A
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).
SHOULDER STRAP INSTALLATION:
The top of the shoulder straps are pre-attached to the sprayer by means of a buckle. The lower end
of the straps are attached by fastening the strap hooks to the metal frame between where frame
exits the plastic tank and makes a bend.
REGULATING THE PRESSURE: (FOR DELUXE MODELS ONLY)
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. To adjust, push down on the knob and rotate to align the desired number with the
alignment pin. If a spray pressure exceeding 60 psi (4 bar) is required, first release the
excess pressure and then replace the adjustment piece with the optional plug (#4200215).
( DELUXE MODELS ONLY.)
Please note: the maximum pressure the models 425, 435 are capable of is 90 psi and the
474, 475, 476 and 485 models is 60 psi. For operating the 425, 435 at higher than 60 psi, the
pressure control valve must be removed and replaced with an optional plug (#4200215)
(see item B).

FILLING:
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 4 gallon capacity, set the pressure
control valve to the 3 or 4 setting. ( DELUXE MODELS ONLY ) Add 2 or 3 gallons 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:
Prime the pump with rapid pump strokes. When you feel very firm resistance, the pressure chamber is filling with liquid.
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.
3
WETTABLE POWDERS:
Avoid use in piston pump sprayers models 425, 435, 473P!
The Solo models 474, 475, 473D, 476 and 485 sprayers
with a diaphragm pump are generally resistant to abrasive
materials and are recommended for this purpose. Note: If
you use a wettable powder in your 425, 435, 473P sprayer,
be sure it is thoroughly mixed in the formula solution.
Immediately after use, be sure to remove the piston, clean
and lubricate the the Viton® collar with Solo Superior
Grease or 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.
CLEANING:
• After spraying, clean the tank thoroughly. If some spray
liquid is left inside, drain tank completely.
• Pumping causes air to be taken in and the remaining
liquid to be discharged. Pump until liquid and air are
coming out through the nozzle.
• Refill tank with a few quarts of clean water and pump the
water out as explained above (if necessary, repeat this
procedure several times).
• If the shut-off valve is removed, the pump can be
flushed quickly. Improper spray distribution is the result
of a clogged nozzle, which is easily removed and
cleaned.
• Soap and water may also be used to clean tank.
• Do not use aggressive cleaning agents or abrasives.
• Follow the recommendations of the chemical manufacturer for disposal of waste water and chemicals.
• Activated charcoal in liquid or other form may be used to
absorb chemicals in tanks or spills.
NOTE: When cleaning the sprayer after working with
hormone weedkillers, follow the instructions of the herbicide
producers. Neutralize with activated charcoal. (Example:
add 0.35 oz./1 g. of activated charcoal to 1.7 pint/1 liter of
water and leave this detergent in the tank and the lines
approximately 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 104°F (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.

(Deluxe Models Only)
• After operation, the sprayer should be stored away from
direct sunlight to prevent UV damage.
• After removing the pump or when mounting a new
Viton® collar, treat both the collar and the piston with
water-resistant grease.*
• Before winter, drain all liquid in tank, lines and air
chamber. (See “Cleaning.”) Leave shut-off valve locked
in the “open” position.
• For service, call your nearest Solo dealer. Always insist
on original Solo spare parts.
• Regularly inspect hose, wand, pump, tank and shut-off
valve for wear, damage or leaks. Repair promptly.
Avoid excessive wear by:
1) Regular lubrication of Viton® collar, cylinder and piston
with water resistant grease.*
2) Prompt and thorough cleaning and flushing of sprayer.
Soap and water work well.
*Use Solo Superior Grease (#9850). Petroleum jelly may also be used.
