    • Store in a cool, dry space
    • Before freezing weather, make sure to drain all liquid in the tank, pump, pressure cylinder, hose, shut-off valve, wand and nozzle
    NOTE: do this to avoid liquid expansion which could crack interior sprayer components
    • Lock the shut-off valve in the “open” position
    • Inspect the hose, wand, pump, tank and shut-off valve for wear, damage or leaks on a regular basis, and repair defects promptly
    • When service is required, call your nearest Chapin dealer and always insist on original Chapin manufactured replacement parts

      Storage and General Spreader Maintenance

      • When finished spreading empty hopper of any remaining material
      • Thoroughly wash spreader
      • Be careful to not spray directly into the gearbox
      • DO NOT use a power washer, you may use a garden hose
      • Allow to fully dry before storing
      • For some models: remember to fold down handle
      • On models with a grease fitting, it's recommended that you apply a general-purpose great at least once a month
      • Check tires for proper inflation after storing spreader for long periods. Inflate to 20 psi

      For some models, specifically salt spreaders

      • Thoroughly wash spreader with a garden hose after each use
      • Some ice melt products, such as magnesium chloride will cause rusting to any stainless steel in wet conditions
      • Calcium chloride is less aggressive but will rust stainless or mild steel in a matter of weeks
      • Some materials are much more aggressive oxidizers than others
