Why is my backpack fogger tank leaking?
The most common leaks to backpack foggers can be fixed simply by reattaching tubing within the tank.
1. Remove the cap from the top of the fogger's chemical tank. 2. Leaking may be caused by the tubing attached to the strainer 3. If the tubing is loose or disconnected from the base of the tank, reattach the tube 4. Fit the tube tightly around the the nozzle at the base of the backpack fogger's chemical tank. 5. Dry off your fogger thoroughly and fill the chemical tank with water to monitor the leakage
Why is the engine not reaching full throttle and stuck and low acceleration?
When your engine is bogging down usually this results from the amount of fuel let into the carburetor. If your Tomahawk Power TMD14 Backpack Fogger engine is bogging down or only runs with the choke open, follow these steps. 1. Identify the engine’s carburetor in between the engine cover and air filter 2. Tune up your carburetor by adjusting the keyhole 3. Use a carburetor adjustment tool* to tune the engine’s carburetor while the engine is running 4. Turn the tool to the left or right until the engine is is running correctly** 5. Use the fogger’s throttle handle to listen for a high pitch, steady hum & find the right speed * The carburetor tool changes the ratio of air and fuel let into the engine. A ratio too high will bog down the engine or too low will choke the engine. ** The engine’s carburetor is very sensitive to adjustments. Only make turns in 25° increments (1/4 turns) until the ideal adjustment is achieved.
