Professional injection gun for use with Fiesta®, Sevin®, Dimension®, Nematodes, Roundup® and most other products.
Applicators have told us that when applying Fiesta with the Pestjet gun as a spot treatment you must walk at half speed. This professional injection gun uses a siphon principle to inject product from the 1750 mL (60 fl oz) bottle.
Rittenhouse developed this gun for use with the insecticide Sevin, which requires the highest injection rate available with this gun. At lower rates, users of the Pestjet gun reported success using Roundup, Dimension, or Nematodes. When applying Nematodes, approx. 5000 sq.ft. of lawn can be covered with a single bottle.
Lower injection rates can be achieved for other products. With this gun, you can choose from 5 different injection settings. Each product concentrate must be calibrated separately as product viscosity can greatly vary the injection ratio. The applicator must calibrate using the desired product to achieve accurate application rates for that product. An injection rate chart is not available due to the wide variety of chemical product choices.
However, in order for the siphon principle to inject product, a Spraying Systems TKSS-20 nozzle (or equivalent) must be used and 40 to 60 psi spray pressure must be maintained.
Replacement parts available for trigger assembly and wand/nozzle assembly.
Siphon mechanism is not repairable.
Approved in British Columbia and Eastern Canada, Deltamethrin can be used in this gun for the prevention of chinch, ants, web worm and cut worm.
Choose between 3/4" garden hose thread (GHT) or quick-connect (QC) ends.
The trigger assembly requires yearly maintenance. Repair kits are readily available. The trigger can be repaired 2-3 times before having to be replaced. Disintegration is usually caused by corrosion.
Regarding the quick disconnect: it is a proprietary disconnect, if you order the Pestjet Gun w/Qc (PESTJET-QC) you will need to also purchase the Quick Couplers Socket (10-321-1415)—You will not find this item in your local hardware store.
