The one I'm having made up is just a standard spray gun with a 300mm extension piece and the offset in simple terms it means I don't stand face on when spraying and with the extension I don't need to use a hop up on single stories. Any way best of luck with your new toy mate I'm sure once you get a few outings with it things will get easier ?

Its like the long spray guns chris. They are good because you dont need to bend or stretch to spray but i find them too big for scaffold work

yes i do have a shop of sorts. I sell PFT products and plastering tools plus bits and peices like masking, firtree plugs, gaffer tapes, nail floats, feather edges blahdee blahh. The long lance is about 100 quid plus vat delivery. The av3000 comes with all the fittings ready to go and a European plug which will need an adapter. i suggest you replace the euro plug for a 16 amp blue mutherfukka and buy a 3 way adapter to draw ur power from. innit
as far as what else you need to use the pump its a pipe from the water butt to the pump and from the pump to the machine. I reccomend a sturdy 1" suction pipe with non return valve that you drop in the butt and a sturdy 1" pipe with geka pressure fittings from the pump.

Sorry to throw a pebble in the pond here but I hated the av3000. Far too big n heavy for something that should be a small unit on the machine anyway. Downgraded to the av3. It also made the machine hesitate slightly on startup as it kicked in a nano second after the machine liked. A little pedrollo from machine mart with a brass impeller is all you really need but the av3000 is sexy if size or budget is not important

I had looked into other pumps goody but the av3000 is the only 1 which would turn its self of when u stoped the machine.
