5 Tips to Winterize Your Sprayer

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Dec 03, 2014

While the winter season doesn’t officially start until December 21, many parts of the country are gearing up for (or already dealing with) snow. With that, our Customer Service Technicians often are asked, "How do I winterize my equipment?” or “Is there any maintenance I need to do before winter hits?” Regardless of your level of experience in the sprayer industry, this is the time of year to winterize your sprayer. Simply put, get it in tiptop shape before it sits idle for a few months. Putting in the time to prep your sprayer for hibernation now will pay in dividends come spring when the spray season picks back up.

Winterize Your Spray Equipment to Help it Last Longer

Posted by Marketing Manager on Tue, Nov 05, 2013

Is Your Sprayer Ready for the Winter?

Winter is almost here and for many part of the country, that means snow, ice and below-freezing weather.  To protect your sprayer, and help your spray equipment last longer, follow these easy steps:
  • Flush the system with clean water

  • Drain the tank and open all valves; Use compressed air to blow out any liquid from solution lines.

  • Run the pump just long enough to ensure that the system is drained of water

  • Run antifreeze through the system long enough to reach any hoses and booms (We recommend diluting the antifreeze 50/50 with either water or windshield washer fluid)

  • Store anything removable (guns, nozzle tips & strainers) in a clean, dry place

  • Cover any openings on the sprayer so that dirt, insects, etc. cannot enter the equipment 

Wear Protective Gear!

Remember to wear appropriate protective gear when cleaning herbicide or pesticide equipment. It's especially important to wear protective eye gear.
