spraying pt fence


I intend to spray my pt fence soon using a Tradeworks 150 (purchased at SW). I've never sprayed before, so this will be a daunting task. I have approx. 200 linear ft of 6ft high.I am in the process of pressure washing the fence now. I intend to use a solid stain. I will put up a barrier on the side facing my neighbor when I am staying to contain over spray.
Any suggestions or warnings before I begin?

As much as possible, remember to keep the spray gun perpendicular to the plane of surface you are coating. There is a tendency among new sprayers to start and end a spray pass on an angle, and this where you get a lot of overspray. Have a brush or roller handy to spread out the drips and sags. Paper, tape and dropsheet anything nearby you don't want to coat.

Appreciate the advice. Hope to get started as soon as the wood dries out from pressure washing.
