If you’re in a rush, could you just put in half the required water, open the big tank lid, pour in the chems then top up the water?

then find a manual when it’s raining.

Looks like the induction hopper is nearly full already…I used to be a PA2 assessor and the times I’d see people get the taps wrong; each mistake back-filling a little more liquid before the inevitable happens! The Venturi in those hardi sprayers isn’t the best; as others have said keep plenty of revs on. If all the taps are pointing to the induction hopper logo rather than the boom section logo (from memory but you catch my drift) it should work unless it has an issue. Always helps to empty the induction while actively filling with water on those if I recall correctly.

Yra they all there but cant get the correct model 😆

shouldn't matter to much cos most induction hoppers work on same principle

in the current pic....1/switch the suck up off (bottom tap)....2/switch top tap to induction.....3/as said plenty of revs then open tap below induction hopper

caveat....can't see what second tap down is about....looks like an on/off for summat.....if the symbol is induction then that might need to be on :scratchhead:

induction hoppers best thing ever invented for sprayers but bit scary when outta nick nacks and back filling:)

Have the hopper rinse on and turn the tap at the bottom so there is always a litre or so in the bottom - the system doesn’t get air then so doesn’t froth or back fill
