2.5-metre recoil hose, 10-litre fill capacity and NBR seals combine to give excellent reach with ease of use and high build quality.
The Profi sprayer has a 10-litre recommended maximum fill within a 12.5-litre total tank volume. A 2.5-metre recoil hose is supplied meaning you aren't tied to the tank, placing it on the floor allows you to walk to spray or even climb a ladder without having to take the weight with you. For even greater flexibility you can increase this to a 5-metre hose.
The Profi has a 2.5-metre recoil hose, as standard, which gives superb reach and flexibility when you don't want to carry the tank. Place the tank on level ground and you can freely walk whilst spraying. Another advantage of a recoil hose is that it allows you to keep everything neat and tidy and you don't have to worry about trailing a long hose.
In addition, you have the option of an additional 5-metre hose.
Simply swap the hoses, when required, and you can now move up to
5-metres from your tank. This can be very useful when spraying from a
ladder as the tank can stand on the floor whilst you spray at height or
just leave the tank in one place whilst you walk.
The sprayer is fitted with NBR seals and benefits from a tank ullage (difference between total tank volume and filling capacity) of 2.5-litres which gives a decent spray time, before you have to pressurise the tank, as the larger volume allows for the storage of more pressurised air. This is especially important when you need to start spraying with the maximum 10-litres of liquid in the tank. The build quality is very good when compared to many sprayers, meaning that it will handle more rough & tumble so professional users will also find this a good addition to their kit.
The ideal plant protection sprayer, the Profi can be used to treat all types of low cultures and shrubs in the home garden as well as an applicator for tree treatment and more advanced forestry work and, not forgetting, weed control. The 10-litre maximum fill does give you an advantage when working away from a water source, compared with the 5-litre tanks, as it will save you time.
This sprayer can also be used with a compressor, meaning that you would have a constant supply of air with no pumping (see accessories above).
If you want to use this sprayer with either of our long telescopic lances (5.4-metre or 3.2-metre reach) then we have included them in the accessories section above. These lances are supplied complete with required connectors for use with this sprayer. If you purchase either of these lances elsewhere on this site then they may not include the required connectors.
The box in which the sprayer is packaged is aesthetically pleasing, with bright colours and clearly laid out information. The top of the box has been cut in such a way that a handle can be formed, facilitating the carrying of the unopened sprayer. The packaging feels sturdy and, after giving the box a shake, it seems that the contents have been packed well.
Upon opening the box, I find that this is indeed the case. The pieces fit together like blocks in a game of Tetris. There is little danger of damage to the individual pieces through heavy-handedness in transporting the box. Unpacking the contents, I am presented with a coiled hose. Having a coiled hose as opposed to a standard long type is incredibly handy. Not only does it save space when packing the sprayer, it is also far less likely to get in the way when one is spraying. Next, I pull out the trigger handle. The trigger handle itself is lockable, useful in avoiding inadvertent spraying. The pressure gauge on the handle is pleasing on the eye. Its clear layout and colour scheme make it easy to read the pressure, whilst the ability to read the pressure in both psi and bar caters for either preference. The box also contains a strap, packed individually in a small plastic bag, making it possible to carry the sprayer on one's shoulder, should one so desire. Instructions are written in numerous languages, from German to Romanian, but all clear and comprehensive. Within the instruction manual is a smaller leaflet, which gives information on metering and liquid distribution for plant treatment.
With the box otherwise emptied and the instruction manual read from cover to cover, I finally pull out the sprayer itself. The sprayer is light and easy to remove from the box using the handle on the top of the tank. Placing the tank on my desk, I find that it is a compact piece of equipment that it is both aesthetically and functionally satisfactory. The yellow/black design found in most MESTO products gives the tank a smart appearance. The compression chamber is easy to unscrew with the same handle used for lifting it, and filling to the desired level is made easy with the levels given down the side of the product. To the rear of the sprayer I find two holes for holding lances, as well a pressure release valve.
Assembling the sprayer is simple, with only a handful of pieces to connect. The hose attaches to the bottom of the tank, passing through a clearly visible hole in the black base of the tank. The trigger handle is then attached to the other end of the hose. I found this a little tricky but, after dipping the end of the hose in hot water for a few seconds, the handle could be connected by pushing the two pieces together. Finally, the lance is screwed on to the handle. These pieces all connect in a relatively simple manner, but step-by-step instructions can be found in the manual should one have any difficulty with the assembly.
Ullage is the name given to the difference between the recommended maximum fill and the
total tank capacity. This is an important consideration, with compression sprayers, as the larger the
ullage the more space there is for compressed air and the more
compressed air then the longer spraying time is before
you run out of pressure. This sprayer has an ullage of 2.5-litres, so when the tank is filled to the recommended maximum you have space for 2.5-litres of air.
Can this sprayer be used with your long telescopic lances?
Yes, the Profi sprayer can be used with either our 5.4-metre and 3.2-metre telescopic lances. We have included both of these lances in the accessories complete with required connectors. There are a number of extension lances available including the 2.5-metre lance which is also shown in the accessories.
This just looks like another 10-litre sprayer why is it more expensive than some in your range but cheaper than others?
You get what you pay for. The price of a sprayer depends upon what
features the sprayer has such as hose type, seals, internal coatings and
connectors. It may not always be obvious what the differences are but
our technical specifications should give much of the information for
you. This particular sprayer has a high build quality, recoil hose and metal compression shaft.
Please explain the option for the additional hose
With the Profi sprayer, you have the choice of purchasing an additional 5-metre hose. The sprayer is supplied with a 2.5-metre recoil hose as standard. This is a very useful and practical hose which works very well for most spraying applications. However, some of our customers have found that a longer hose would be helpful especially when spraying from a ladder as the tank can be left on the floor. The additional hose is not a recoil design but is supplied with both tank and stop valve fittings meaning that the two hoses can be easily swapped when required.
Why do you mention the type of seals as I don't normally see this advertised on sprayers?
Seals are important. If you don't have the right seal for the liquid you are using then you could start to see leaks. For a majority of liquids used around the home, such as weed killers, then most seal types should suffice but with many cleaning solutions, oils, fuels or industrial fluids you should check compatibility.
