Stainless Steel Sprayer - 6 litre
This stainless steel Inox Plus sprayer boasts 6 bar maximum spraying pressure and a single piece tank that gives maximum strength together with a large base that allows for stability even on uneven ground.
The 2.5-metre recoil hose is great for keeping your spray area tidy however, should a longer hose be useful then we can offer an additional 5-metre or 10-metre length (not recoil design) complete with fittings.
This sprayer can be connected to a compressor which would give you a constant supply of air. To do this we can offer three different types of connector; there is the single valve that threads directly into the tank, a replacement handle for the compression cylinder that incorporates the valve and the third option is another replacement handle which not only incorporates the valve but also an adjustable pressure gauge.

Mesto 3565 & 3595 are both 6-litre capacity compression sprayers with a 6 BAR maximum spraying pressure and a maximum flow rate of 4.5-litres per minute. The 3565 has a yellow coated, mild steel tank whilst the tank of the 3595 is constructed from stainless steel.
Both sprayers are packaged, as usual, in brightly coloured boxes with plenty of good quality, informative photos and basic information, and are of a construction that feels strong enough to both hold and give some decent protection to the contents. I like the way that the box lid is cut so that it can form a handle. A nice touch.
Upon opening the box, I look for the instruction manual and with these sprayers we get not one but two. The first is more of a leaflet which opens out and gives technical information on metering and spraying rates. It looks very technical but is very informative and a reminder that these sprayers are intended to be used not just by amateurs but also by professionals. The main instruction manual is printed in six languages, so the 47 pages are not of interest to many of us. However, the 7 that are printed in English tell you everything that you need to know, from a welcome message and safety notices through technical information, assembly instructions, care & maintenance information, and a faults guide.
Having had a quick read, I decide it is time to have a look at the sprayers themselves. Everything is nicely packed around the tank so removing the sprayer from the box only requires the hose to be put to one side. A gentle pull on the tank handle and the sprayer lifts easily from the box. My first impression of the 3595 is that stainless steel makes for a very impressive looking tank. The 3565 has a yellow, polyester coating which, whilst not as attractive as the stainless steel, still looks bright and does make the printed markings stand out well. I like the brass lance and nozzle and the coiled 2.5-meter hose. The coiled hose reduces the hose length to around 30cm. This is a nice space saving idea which also means that you are not going to get caught up in a long hose. The sprayer itself has three storage holes for lances, a nice big tank handle, a pressure release valve, a pressure gauge, and a small storage compartment. These last three are all recessed into the top of the sprayer which kept nice sight lines. This is not important when it comes to the operation of the sprayer but I feel it shows that time has been taken to design a sprayer that isn’t just effective but also looks good.
After skimming through the instruction manual, the assembly doesn't look very difficult. There are only three parts to attach to the tank; the shoulder strap, the coiled hose, and the lance. The hose and lance handle are already connected to each other, so there is one less job to do. The padded shoulder strap is fed through the two slots in the rear of the sprayer and, whilst a little fiddly, it only took me a few moments to fit. The lance is easily threaded onto the lance handle and the hose screws into the base of tank. TIP: There is a small lock that, when pushed into place, stops the hose from accidentally unscrewing. I would suggest that it is a good idea to use it.
The assembly only took a few minutes and wasn’t difficult. Remember that there are plenty of diagrams and instructions to help you so go back to the instruction manual if something doesn’t make sense.
I am now ready to start spraying. I place the tank on the floor and turn the tank handle anticlockwise. After a few turns, I pull the central housing from the tank which allows me to start filling. The design incorporates a nice wide filling area, so spillages should be easy to keep to a minimum. I have no issues filling the tank so replace the housing and gently tighten it. I only need to pump the tank handle a few times to bring it to full pressure and spraying is just as I would expect; a nice spray pattern is easily maintained. To release the pressure within the tank simply pull the small, red pressure release valve.
Draining of the tank is easy as the hose is attached at the base so, if you wish, you can simply unscrew the hose and the tank will fully drain. Alternatively, you can just remove the central housing and empty any contents that way.
TIP: The brass thread on the lance handle, to which the sprayer lance attaches, can be unscrewed. This will reveal a larger thread. This larger thread is required should you wish to use telescopic lance extensions or many other types of attachment.
I would class the 3595 & 3565 as top quality, compression sprayers that are designed to be used by amateurs and professionals alike. The 6 BAR maximum working pressure and the option to pressurise via compressed air (with the addition of a valve) mark these sprayers apart from much of the competition. Metal tanks are very robust and look great.
Why is the tank size different from the working capacity?
With compression sprayers you must have room, within the tank, to pressurise air which will then push the liquid out of the tank. This is why there is a difference. This sprayer has a 9 litre tank but we recommend a maximum fill of 6 litres which gives 3 litres of air which you can pressurise. The more pressurised air there is within the tank then the longer spray time between stopping and re-pressurising the tank. Be careful when buying sprayers as you need to know the fill volume/capacity not the tank size. This is a 6 litre capacity and a 9 litre tank size.
Why should I use a Stainless Steel sprayer?
They are strong, look very good, robust and give very good chemical resistance when used in conjunction with the FPM seals.
