KNOW YOUR SPRAYER
Read this owner's manual and safety rules before operating your sprayer.
Compare the illustration below with your sprayer to familiarize yourself with the various controls and their locations.

................
SPRAY GUN TRIGGER
Turns the flow to the nozzle
on or off.
ON-OFF SWITCH
Turns the pump motor on or off.
NOZZLE
Adjusts the spray pattern from a fine mist to
a straight stream.
BEFORE
STARTING
It is important
to test the 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
flip the sprayer ON-OFF switch on. A pressure
switch on the pump will then turn the motor on
whenever the system pressure is below 40 psi. The
pump will run whenever
a pressure drop is caused
by squeezing the spray gun trigger.
HOW TO STOP YOUR
SPRAYER
The pump will turn off whenever the spray gun
trigger is released and the pressure builds up to 40
psi.
The pump can also be turned off with the ON-OFF
switch located on the pump.
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 or turn
the ON-OFF switch off to conserve energy from the
battery during periods of idleness. If the resting
sprayer is connected and the sprayer switch turned
on, the pump will run periodically as the system
pressure gradually drops below 40 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.
