Get your sprayer set up on your equipment (Tractor, 4 x4, side by side, truck).
Look over your sprayer and check unit for obvious leaks and issues (Implement pins tight, rotation chain tight, wiring).
Check battery on the sprayer to make sure it is fully charged (Engine Driven Units).
Remove spray tips and T-Filter to ensure both are clean and clear then replace.
Check functions of sprayer (rotation of fan, throttle control, solenoid on/off).
Fill tank half full with clean water to check the flow rates and leaks. Remember not to start your sprayer at this point. (Pay special attention to T-Filter and Solenoid).
Turn on sprayer and run water through the entire system to check for any leaks (Tractor PTO, or Sprayer’s engine).
Make sure sprayer is building pressure on pressure gauge (check for leaks).
Check functions of sprayer again while running (rotation of fan, throttle control, solenoid on/off).
Once functions are checked and operation with no leaks your sprayer is ready to go to work!
