Re: Restoring MacKissic Boom Sprayer

That's quite a rig there! Does that run off the PTO somehow or is there an engine on there I'm missing?

Re: Restoring MacKissic Boom Sprayer

Yeah, it mounts to the rear hitch system and runs off the rear PTO. I have seen a few later fitted with swing-out booms, which is what I would like to try if I ever find one for sale =]

Re: Restoring MacKissic Boom Sprayer

Well got some parts in and the decal set that I ordered. The air filter is giving me fits because all the B&S sites show the filter but when you try to order it cross references to a pre-filter which just won't do the job! I was going to do some painting but the temperature dropped last weekend (had a snowstorm on Saturday) and couldn't paint without the temp dropping to far in the basement. I have to keep all the windows open and a fan drawing air or the whole house get's fumes!

Re: Restoring MacKissic Boom Sprayer

Well the garden tractor parts tree looks like it's blooming today! Got started on painting the frame and other pieces (temp above 60 degrees!) today.

Re: Restoring MacKissic Boom Sprayer

Well in between all the other maintenance I've been doing I'm slowly progressing on the sprayer. Here are some pics!

Re: Restoring MacKissic Boom Sprayer

Well I wouldn't say excited, I had to wait till the weather allowed me to paint outside or this would have been done earlier (War Department put painting in the basement off limits!). I will be glad when I have it done though and it should look very "Deereish" behind the 322!!!

Re: Restoring MacKissic Boom Sprayer

Well was prepping the engine for painting and one of my "covered" openings wasn't as covered as it should have been. Looks like I'll be tearing the Briggs and Stratton apart to flush the engine and ensure no blasting media remains!

Re: Restoring MacKissic Boom Sprayer

Yeah, but I guess there must be some reason for it. I was hoping to not tear into it as it was running alright but maybe I'll find something that needed fixed when I get in there (looking for divine intervention to justify a dumb mistake!).

Hate it when that happens, but better safe than sorry.
