BEFORE
STARTING
It Is Important to test the boom and spray gun with plain
water before attempting actual spraying. This will enable
you to check the sprayer for leaks and to adjust the spray
pattern. If a leak should occur, thread tape may be used
to better seal the fitting.
HOW
TO START
YOUR
SPRAYER
Once the sprayer is connected
to a power source
the pump will start whenever a pressure drop is
caused by squeezing the spray gun trigger. A
pressure switch on the pump turns the motor on
when the system pressure drops below 35 psi.
HOW
TO STOP
YOUR
SPRAYER
The pump will turn of whenever a pressure buildup
to 35 psi is caused by releasing the spray gun
trigger.
USING
YOUR
SPRAYER
The spray gun has an adjustable nozzle which allows
the spray pattern to be adjusted from a cone shaped
fine mist to a straight stream.
Do not subject the pump to continuous rapid on and
off cycling (one second intervals) for long periods of
time. This occurs when the spray gun is adjusted for a
very low rate of flow.
Disconnect the sprayer from the power source to
conserve energy from the battery during periods of
idleness. While the resting sprayer is connected, the
pump will run periodically as the system pressure
gradually drops below 35 psi.
Stay clear of flowers, shrubs and evergreen trees
when spraying weed control solutions. Avoid contact
of the solution with these sensitive plants.
CAUTION: Wear eye protection, gloves
and protective
clothing when handling
and working with lawn chemicals.
