H.E.R.O. INDUSTRIES LTD. 1100MD OWNERS MANUAL - “B” VERSION
SETTING UP TO SPRAY
1. Remove unit from shipping carton.
2. Remove shipping seal from under hydraulic tank cap.
3. Re-position paint tank lid knob from the shipping position, on the underside
of lid, and place on the lid top.
4. Attach paint hose to outgo tee (ref# 43) and gun to paint hose.
NOTE; Spray tip and tip guard should be attached to gun prior to attaching
5. To assist in clean up, use and install paint tank plastic liners ( accessory item
5 GAL PL ). Line the inner sides of tank, ensuring that the liner does not
block the tank screen in the bottom of the tank. Fold excess over the outside
6. Install strainer bag (accessory item 5GAL SB) in tank and secure with large
rubber band ( accessory item 106 ).
NOTE; Strainer bag must remain 4 inches from the bottom of tank.
7. Trigger gun to release any pressure in the unit. Use extreme caution to ensure
that the gun is not directed towards anyone or any object which may be
NOTE; Unit may contain storage solution.
8. To remove storage solution, add one gallon of thinner, compatible with the
type of paint to be used, to the paint tank.
9. Turn pressure control knob (ref# 71) to lowest pressure setting.
10. Be sure motor switch is in "OFF" position. Plug unit into 115V, 15 amp.,
NOTE; If using an extension cord, you MUST use a #12/3 wire grounded
cord, up to 50 feet or #10/3 wire grounded cord, up to 100 feet. DO NOT
EXCEED 100 FEET OF EXTENSION CORD. If distance is greater,
purchase and install additional lengths of airless spray hose.
11. Turn motor switch "on" and increase pressure slowly. Trigger gun into a
waste container. Continue spraying until pump runs dry and all thinner and
holding solution has been removed. Keep pressure low.
12. Pour paint through strainer bag into paint tank.
NOTE; Pour paint (particularly thick paints ) slowly, to allow paint to
enter the intake hose while at the same time allowing air the opportunity to
escape up the intake tube. Pouring paint in quickly can trap air in the intake
tube ( air lock ) and make priming difficult.
13. Replace paint tank lid. Keep tank covered at all times to prevent
contaminates from falling into the paint.
14. Increase the pressure, slowly at first, by turning the pressure control knob
clockwise. Spray a test pattern.
NOTE; Begin by spraying a test pattern onto old newspaper or other scrap
material. Continue increasing the pressure until the spray pattern is
uniformed from top to bottom, with no heavy areas. Secure pressure control
setting, by turning the silver lock ring (ref# 73) counter clockwise until
snugly against the face of the pressure control knob. If heavy areas are still
visible at maximum pressure setting, thin the paint with the correct thinner,
according to the paint manufacturer's recommendations.
