A compression sprayer, the Mesto Profi Plus 3275P has a 5-litre capacity (also available with a 10-litre capacity) yellow, polyethylene tank with a 3 BAR maximum spraying pressure and a maximum flow rate of 1-litre per minute.
The Mesto sprayer is packaged in a brightly coloured box with plenty of good quality, informative photos and basic information and is of a construction that felt strong enough to both hold and give some decent protection to the sprayer.
Upon opening the box the first thing I looked for was an instruction manual and, once I got my hands on it, quite some instruction manual it is. In keeping with some of the other sprayers within the Mesto range, there are over 125 pages of instructions. Only 8 of them are in English but it is nice to get an instruction manual and this one tells you everything that you need to know from a welcome message and safety notices through technical information, assembly instructions, care & maintenance information and a faults guide. Having had a quick read, I decided it was time to have a look at the sprayer itself. Everything was nicely packed around the tank so to remove the sprayer from the box only required a gently pull and wiggle on the handle and the tank lifted easily from the box. My first impression of the sprayer is that it looks like a robust piece of kit with nice bright colours and a big pump handle. I like the brass lance and nozzle and the coiled 2.5-meter hose. The coiled hose reduces the hose length to around 30cm so this is a nice space saving idea which also means that you are not going to get caught up in a long hose. I was slightly disappointed to see that the Profi Plus didn’t have the integrated pressure gauge in the lance handle but that is saved for the 6 BAR sprayers.
After skimming through the instruction manual, the assembly didn’t look too difficult. There are only four parts to attach to the tank the shoulder strap, coiled hose, lance handle and lance. The shoulder strap is fed through the two slots in the rear of the top section with the black, plastic buckle used to hold the ends and adjust the strap length. TIP: feed the strap through the top of the first slot then up through the second slot. This way you don’t have to remove the buckle from the strap. The lance is easily threaded onto the lance handle and the hose connects to the handle and base of tank. TIP: I found the hose quite hard to push onto the lance handle so I dipped the end of the hose into hot water for a few moments and this softened it enough to make it far easier to attach.
The assembly only took a few minutes and wasn’t at all difficult. Remember that there are plenty of diagrams and instructions to help you so if something doesn’t make sense then go back to the instruction manual.
I was now ready to start spraying so I placed the tank on the floor and turned the tank handle anticlockwise and after a few turns pulled the central housing from the tank which allowed me to start filling. The design incorporates a nice wide filling area so spillages should be easy to keep to a minimum. I managed to fill the tank with no issues, replaced the housing and gently tightened it. I only needed to pump the tank handle a few times to bring it to full pressure and spraying was just as I would expect; a nice spray pattern was easily maintained. To release the pressure within the tank simply pull the small, red pressure release valve.
Draining of the tank was easy as the hose it attached at the base so, if you wish, you can simply unscrew the hose and the tank will fully drain.
Can I use this sprayer with your telescopic lances?
Yes. This sprayer can be used with either our 3.2 metre or 5.4 metre telescopic lances, as well as other lance extensions within our range. All you need to connect this sprayer to either of the long telescopic lances is either the Sprayer Connecting Hose or Flexible Connecting Hose.
Is there a benefit to having this type of hose?The Profi Plus sprayer has a recoil hose which is unusual for sprayers, the vast majority of which have a standard hose configuration. The benefit of a recoil hose is that you can have a much longer length of hose which only takes up a small amount of space and it is easy to keep tidy. This sprayer has 2.5 metres of hose which is double the length of many of the sprayers within our range. This is a huge benefit, compared to other sprayers, as it gives you flexibility when spraying.
Why are these sprayers more expensive than others you offer?
Build quality, replacement parts and accessories. All of the sprayers within our range are very good, quality sprayers and will, if looked after, last you many years however you pay for what you get. The reason why the Profli and Profli Plus sprayers are more expensive than others we offer is the overall strength and robustness of the tank, high quality seals, 2.5 metre recoil hose and general build quality. These sprayers are not designed to be used a few times, thrown away and a replacement bought. They are designed to last you many years and have parts replaced when they wear or are broken. Also, with the range of accessories we have, one sprayer is able to handle many different type of job.
