To start the review of this
sprayer, I thought that I would quote a paragraph from the instruction manual: ‘The sprayer is made from highly resistant
materials so as to be used with different chemicals for dust protection
cleaning, disinfecting, degreasing, stripping, cleaning swimming pools, with
15-20% diluted acid, and for many other purposes. Adjustable nozzle. Adaptor for accessories. Directional lance. Metal Handle.
Filter in lance. Hose with nuts
without clamps. Supplied with a full set
of Viton seals. Strong polypropylene
tank with contents indicator and instructions for use. Visible filling level. Lance fastener. Right-angle chamber elbow. Chamber locking cover with sealing
gasket. Highly resistant chamber. Stainless steel ball in valve and
sleeve. Tank cover with non-drip valve. Carrying
handle. Large filling filter with
indicator of contents. Hook directed,
adjustable, anticorrosive and non-slip straps.
Mechanical agitator. Can be used
with either the left or right hand. Can
be fitted with a 50cm extension. Set of
interchangeable nozzles and hose.’
I have written several reviews
for our range of sprayers but this is the first time that I have quoted (or
copied) anything directly from the instruction manual. I decided to do it this time as, if we excuse
the poor English, it really says everything that we need to know. Well almost everything.
This is a 12-litre knapsack
sprayer and, upon opening the box, comes pretty much assembled for you. All
that is required is to decide which hose you want to use and connect it to the
sprayer and handle. That’s it. It took me around a minute from opening the
box to having the sprayer fully assembled.
I mentioned that you needed to decide which hose that you required, this
is because the sprayer is supplied with a choice of two. The grey hose is for use with all types of
chemicals except oils and fuel, for which you should use the black hose. There is also a choice of nozzles with either
hollow cone or fan depending upon what you are using the sprayer for.
Putting the sprayer on is easy
enough especially if you put it on a table and fit it from there. It just means that you have less distance to
lift the tank and swing it onto your back.
Straps are quite easy once you remember that one is fitted to the base of
the tank and the other just hooks on to the bottom of the tank. This means that you pass your arm through the
fitted strap, lift the tank, and the other strap is then passed over your
shoulder and hooked on. Both straps are
then pulled tight. To remove the tank,
just unhook the strap and the tank can be easily removed.
I found this to be a very comfortable and effective sprayer to use. It feels good on your back and everything, I thought, had a good feel. It is easy to see that it has been made with the professional market in mind. The selection of hoses and nozzles give a wide range of use and the polypropylene tank and viton seals mean that the sprayer is just a comfortable with an acid or an alkaline product. I would have no hesitation recommending this sprayer to either a professional or amateur.
Our backpack sprayers are designed for maximum strength, ease of use, comfort and flexibility. This IK Multi sprayer has a high strength polypropylene tank providing excellent chemical resistance, so that most types of chemical products can be used within a single sprayer.
This knapsack sprayer has a 12 litre capacity and is both easy to assemble and comfortable to wear. The pump handle can be mounted on either side of the tank allowing for ease of use by either left or right-handed operators. It has a moulded carry handle and adjustable, anticorrosive non-slip straps as well as a mechanical agitator within the tank. This ensures that the contents are always mixed so that no separation can take place during the spraying process. The spray lance is made from fibreglass so is both strong and light and we only use Viton seals which are both chemical resistant and long lasting. This knapsack sprayer is also supplied with a metal spray lever (as opposed to plastic that are generally supplied with this type of unit) providing greater strength. All plastic parts and washers are resistant to most acids and solvents, as well as chemical agents widely used in the world of industry, automotive and professional cleaning.
A full operators manual is supplied with each unit.
