https://www.tidyingwithtania.com

As the dull, drab weather and Lockdown3 continues, you might decide to put your time to good use and tackle some ‘garden’ jobs like tidying out the shed, planning this years vegetable planting, and servicing your sprayers!

Hopefully, you cleaned it out after it’s last use, before storing away. if not, you might find that the lance (wand) has been frost damaged, or you may have misplaced your nozzle cap! We have replacement lances for all major sprayer brands – Cooper Pegler, Berthoud, Matabi, Marolex, IK, Mesto, Hardi, Cuprinol and Ronseal – most of the standard replacement lances are listed here, and you’ll find triggers and lance O’Rings, washers and nozzle holders within the section for your sprayer type, from here, along with extension lances and boom kits.

Service Repair and Seal Kits containing most of the seals, springs and small internal parts you need to give your sprayer a good pre-season overhaul can be found here.

For Cooper Pegler Maxipro, Classic and Series 2000 sprayers, many small parts can be bought individually, with parts drawings available to help you identify the correct part you need. They can be found here

We have collated useful videos showing simple stripping, rebuilding and repairing of some of the most popular sprayer brands on our YouTube channel.

If you need any help to find the right parts for your sprayer, please don’t hesitate to contact us. During Lockdown3, the best way to do this is by email as we continue to operate on a reduced staffing basis.
