Is this sprayer working? Application Equipment Care & Maintenance – John Cotton, B&G Equipment
You use your sprayer almost daily, but do you really know how it works? What happens when you overspray? Do you know what your nozzle flow rate is? John Cotton will take apart and reassemble a sprayer while thoroughly explaining the job and care and maintenance of the sprayer parts. He will also discuss application principles such as pattern, flow rates, and what happens when you overspray or underspray.
