This manual contains information that must be read and understood before using the airless sprayer equipment. When you come to an
area that has one of the following symbols, pay particular attention and make certain to heed the safeguard.
This symbol indicates a potential hazard that may cause serious injury or loss of life. Important safety information will follow.
This symbol indicates a potential hazard to you or to the equipment. Important information that tells how to prevent
damage to the equipment or how to avoid causes of minor injuries will follow.
NOTE: Notes give important information which should be given special attention.
HAZARD: Injection injury – A high pressure fluid stream produced by this equipment can pierce the
skin and underlying tissues, leading to serious injury and possible amputation. See a physician immediately.
DO NOT TREAT AN INJECTION INJURY AS A SIMPLE CUT! Injection can lead to amputation. See a physician immediately.
The maximum operating range of the sprayer is 3200 PSI/221BAR fluid pressure.
• NEVER aim the airless spray gun at any part of the body.
• NEVER allow any part of the body to touch the fluid stream. DO NOT allow body to touch a leak in the fluid hose.
• NEVER put hand in front of the gun. Gloves will not provide protection against an injection injury.
• ALWAYS lock gun trigger, shut pump off, and release all pressure before servicing, cleaning tip or guard, changing
tip, or leaving unattended. Pressure will not be released by turning off the motor. The PRIME/SPRAY valve handle
must be turned to PRIME to relieve the pressure. Refer to the PRESSURE RELIEF PRESSURE described in the
• ALWAYS keep airless tip guard in place while spraying. The tip guard provides some protection but is mainly a warning device.
• ALWAYS remove the spray tip before flushing or cleaning the system.
• Paint hose can develop leaks from wear, kinking and abuse. A leak can inject material into the skin. Inspect
the hose before each use.
• NEVER use a spray gun without a working trigger lock and trigger guard in place.
• All accessories must be rated at or above 3200 PSI/221 BAR. This includes spray tips, guns, extensions, and hose.
NOTE TO PHYSICIAN:
Injection into the skin is a traumatic injury. It is important to treat the injury as soon as possible. DO NOT delay treatment to research toxicity. Toxicity is a concern with some coatings injected directly into the blood stream. Consultation with a plastic surgeon or reconstructive hand surgeon may be advisable.
HAZARD: EXPLOSION AND FIRE – Solvent and paint
fumes can explode or ignite. Severe injury and/or property damage can occur.
• Provide extensive exhaust and fresh air introduction to keep the air within the spray area free from accumulation of flammable vapors.
• Avoid all ignition sources such as static electricity sparks, electrical appliances, flames, pilot lights, hot objects, and
sparks from connecting and disconnecting power cords or working light switches.
• Do not smoke in spray area.
• Fire extinguisher must be present and in good working order.
• Place pump at least 20 feet (6.1 m) from the spray object in a well ventilated area (add more hose if necessary).
Flammable vapors are often heavier than air. Floor area must be extremely well ventilated. The pump contains
arcing parts that emit sparks and can ignite vapors.
• The equipment and objects in and around the spray area must be properly grounded to prevent static sparks.
• Use only conductive or grounded high-pressure fluid hose. Gun must be grounded through hose connections.
• Power cord must be connected to a grounded circuit.
• Always flush unit into separate metal container, at low pump pressure, with spray tip removed. Hold gun firmly
against side of container to ground container and prevent static sparks.
• Follow material and solvent manufacturer’s warnings and instructions.
• Use extreme caution when using materials with a flashpoint below 70° F (21° C). Flashpoint is the temperature at which a fluid can produce enough vapors to ignite.
• Plastic can cause static sparks. Never hang plastic to enclose spray area. Do not use plastic drop cloths when
spraying flammable materials.
• Use lowest possible pressure to flush equipment.
GAS ENGINE (WHERE APPLICABLE)
Always place sprayer outside of structure in fresh air. Keep all solvents away from engine exhaust. Never fill fuel tank with a
running or hot engine. Hot surface can ignite spilled fuel.
Always attach ground wire from pump to a grounded object. Refer to engine owner’s manual for complete safety information.
HAZARD: EXPLOSION HAZARD DUE TO INCOMPATIBLE
MATERIALS – will cause severe injury or property damage.
• Do not use materials containing bleach or chlorine.
• Do not use halogenated hydrocarbon solvents such as bleach, mildewcide, methylene chloride and 1,1,1 – trichloroethane. They are not compatible with aluminum.
• Contact your coating supplier about the compatibility of material with aluminum.
HAZARD: HAZARDOUS VAPORS – Paints, solvents, insecticides, and other materials can be harmful if inhaled or come in contact with body. Vapors can cause severe nausea, fainting, or poisoning.
• Use a respirator or mask if vapors can be inhaled. Read all instructions supplied with the mask to be sure it will
provide the necessary protection.
• Wear protective eyewear.
• Wear protective clothing as required by coating manufacturer.
HAZARD: GENERAL – Can cause severe injury or property damage.
• Read all instructions and safety precautions before operating equipment.
• Follow all appropriate local, state, and national codes governing ventilation, fire prevention, and operation.
• The United States Government Safety Standards have been adopted under the Occupational Safety and Health
Act (OSHA). These standards, particularly part 1910 of the General Standards and part 1926 of the Construction
Standards, should be consulted.
• Use only manufacturer authorized parts. User assumes all risks and liabilities when using parts that do not meet
the minimum specifications and safety devices of the pump manufacturer.
• Before each use, check all hoses for cuts, leaks, abrasion or bulging of cover. Check for damage or movement of
couplings. Immediately replace hose if any of those conditions exist. Never repair a paint hose. Replace with
a grounded high-pressure hose.
• All hoses, swivels, guns, and accessories must be pressure rated at or above 3200PSI/221 BAR.
• Do not spray outdoors on windy days.
• Wear clothing to keep paint off skin and hair.
• Always unplug cord from outlet before working on equipment.
This product must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by
providing an escape wire for the electric current. This product is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with an
appropriate grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
DANGER — Improper installation of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. If repair or replacement of the
cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the green grounding wire to either flat blade terminal. The wire with insulation
having a green outer surface with or without yellow stripes is the grounding wire and must be connected to the grounding
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if you
are in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided. If the plug will not fit the
outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Cover for grounded outlet box
Use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3-blade grounding plug and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept the
plug on the product. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure
to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop
in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating.
A 12 gauge cord is recommended. If an extension cord is to be used outdoors, it must be marked with the suffix W-
A after the cord type designation. For example, a designation of SJTW-A would indicate that the cord would
be appropriate for outdoor use.
