Einhell cordless pressure sprayers in test conditions: Here's how they performed
We have subjected our pressure sprayer models to the intensive Einhell test and can tell you how they got on in practical use.
An important factor in the pressure sprayer test was the ease of assembly. The Einhell pressure sprayers are ready for use in just four steps. First, the spray tube is screwed onto the pistol handle, then the hose is plugged in and fastened with a nut. In the third step, the hose is screwed to the housing. Finally, the only thing missing is the charged lithium-ion Power X-Change battery – just click it in and you're done.
If you want to wear the pressure sprayer for more time-consuming work in order to distribute the weight better on your body, depending on the model, you can hook in the practical shoulder strap and adjust it to the individual length. Thanks to the special carrying straps, our cordless pressure sprayer GE-WS 18/150 Li can even be worn on your back like a backpack. The tank for this backpack sprayer holds up to 15 litres of liquid, which you can comfortably carry on your back during use.
Depending on the model, the battery pressure sprayer can be worn on your back or hung over the shoulder like a bag.
Depending on the size of the surfaces to be sprayed, you will need different amounts of spraying agent. So that you don't have to constantly refill, you should pay attention to the maximum capacity of the tank when making a purchase. The tanks in the Einhell models are equipped with a fill level indicator, which shows how much spraying agent is left in the tank at any time.
When filling, it was important for us during testing that the tank can be opened easily. While our cordless backpack sprayer has a large twist lock for filling, the smaller pressure sprayers can be conveniently filled through a filling opening on the top using a watering can or hose. The closure for this opening is a practical measuring cup that can also be used to precisely dose, mix or dilute the spraying agent.
An easy-to-use pistol handle, the automatic pump and low device weight are some of the points that make using the pressure sprayer enjoyable. The adjustable spray jet is also helpful, and thanks to its brass spray nozzle it can be regulated from a point jet to a fanned spray or to fine spray mist. This works very easily with our devices by turning the spray head clockwise or anti-clockwise.
If the spray lance of the two pressure sprayer models GE-WS 18/75 Li and GE-WS 18/35 Li is too short for you, they are telescopic, so you can simply adjust them. To do this, loosen the locking nut as described in the operating instructions, pull the spray pipe to the desired length and fasten the locking nut again.
Once you've finished working, the pressure sprayer should be cleaned so that no spraying agent residue remains in the container. The easiest way to do this is to fill the tank with clean water, close it and shake it. Then spray the water to remove residue from the spray lance and the valve. The spray head and nozzle can also be removed and cleaned with water and a fine wire. To prevent moisture from remaining, you should allow the container to dry in the open state.
