    Why isn't it working?
    Have a look
    Battery is cheap
    Pump is cheap
    Wiring can be fixed if loose or broken
    Don't write it off as once you have a look at it you will see it is simple
    Could even be the inline fuse in the wiring if something is shorting

    Open it up and check the internal fuse and also that the fuse holder is OK. The other thing to check is that the battery terminals are on.

    We are on our second converted sprayer in 6 years. The only reason why the first one was replaced was that a strap become unhooked and the sprayer dropped to the ground and broke.

    This is the one we use but not at this price
