Be Prepared, and Stay Ahead of Your Competitors

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Dec 19, 2017

Benjamin Franklin once said "By failing to Prepare, you are Preparing to Fail." There's a lot to soak in regarding that famous quote, especially when it concerns running business or dealing with turf management issues.  Not having a vital piece of equipment on hand could mean the difference between upholding a customer relationship and getting kicked to the curb.  Keep your company running smoothly and your customers happy by having the tools you need to perform your service.

Inspect Your Sprayer Parts and Accessories and Update Your Inventory

In between seasons or during scheduled intervals, make it a point to examine your various sprayer parts including, but not limited to your strainers, spray hoses, strainer.jpgand spray tips, to look for worn or damaged areas.  Make a list of what extra parts you have on hand and how many you usually use in a season or a set time period.  As they say, "time is money", and having to stop what you're doing or reschedule a job so that you can order a part, then wait for it to arrive could spell trouble for your business if it occurs frequently.  Of course there Some things you cannot help, but being prepared is not one of them!

Staying Organized is the First Step in Staying Prepared

Keep a journal of the various sprayer parts you use the most. Use that running list to help you keep an idea of what and when you need to reorder specific products.  Whether it's taking a picture of a needed sprayer accessory with your smartphone while out in the field to serve as a reorder reminder, or simply jotting it down on paper, always have a solid idea of the equipment you need to reorder to keep your business running smoothly.  The key to a more productive business is being able to go to your personal supply room and get the particular part that you need as opposed to bringing your business to a grinding halt as you wait for the arrival of a parts shipment.  So stay organized, and stay one step ahead of the game!

Beginner's Guide: How to Complete Your Fall Sprayer Maintenance

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Nov 23, 2016

It's that time of year again...the leaves are falling, the temperatures areKings Sprayer Maintenance.jpg dropping and for many, it's time to put the spray equipment away for the winter months. It's the ideal time to perform preventive maintenance and put together a checklist (don't worry, we've got one you can download by clicking the button at the end of this post) for an annual maintenance plan.

Fall Sprayer Maintenance in 5 Easy Steps

  1. Check spray tips for wear and tear, and replace as necessary. Spray tips don't last forever! You can read more about how to tell when it's time to replace them in this blog post we published earlier this year.
  2. Change the oil in your pump, gearbox and engine. Consult your manufacturer’s recommendations on appropriate fluid changes.
  3. Flush the pump and tank with clean water and make sure to dry them using a clean rag.
  4. Remove any debris from the strainer and flush it with water. A clean and properly sealed strainer will allow proper flow to the pump and contribute to a longer pump life.
  5. Remember to calibrate your sprayer before storing it. Follow the steps outlined here for more information on how to perform a calibration.

We recommend the use of a Maintenance Checklist to keep track of each maintenance task. To help you get started, we have created a Sprayer Seasonal Maintenance Checklist that lists all components that need to be serviced daily, weekly, quarterly and semi-annually. It also includes a winterizing checklist! Check it out:
