Loading Compound into the Taper

To fill the TapeTech automatic taper, first swing the gate valve lever down and back towards the drive wheels to the “closed” or “fill” position. Be sure to close the valve all the way or you will pump joint compound out through the head instead of into the tube. Turn the taper upside down and insert the filler tube into the gooseneck opening. Now, start pumping. Watch the video to learn more.
