Gem SP Sprayer question.

I have a Gem Emerald. The answer is possibly the same on a Sapphire, I'm not sure.

I have a switch in the cab to increase and decrease the pressure in the Ramsay Valve. Presumably this is done by a small compressor somewhere.
When I press the switch, the fuse blows so something clearly isn't right.


Where IS the compressor? I can't find it anywhere?! There is a chance it's not there, and that's part of the problem.

This may be of no use at all.
Never had a trailed sprayer, but did have a Case mounted.
The little compressor they used was in a black box with four screws that had seized.

There could be something like this on yours ?

It housed a 12 volt compressor that could seize up, but was cheap enough to sort.

Try and follow the pipework from the Ramsay back. The compressors are similar to those used in a 12v tyre inflation kit so if can find a cheap one to break, it up may save you a few pennies.G

On my emerald it’s in the engine bay right hand side as you sit on seat. I just have a cheapo 12v compressor running it cost about £10

Ah, another Emerald owner! Few and far between!

Have you ever had any bother with the foot switch for switching between 2 and 4 wheel steer?

Not that I remember only problem with 4ws was a knackerd switch to tell if wheels are straight. @Graham Smith sieted me a new one. Been a good reliable sprayer

Can only assume it's meant to be here:

I inflate the Ramsay manually at this valve.

@Graham Smith Can you tell me any more about this steering switch? Where can it be found
