Had to bite the bullet and get a 3pt hitch sprayer as I want to use the old 70 gal pull behind as a watering unit for the garden as I am tired of setting up the sprinkler system and then trying to till around it all when it is weed control time. Here is a link to the company's site.
It is a 62us gallon unit and I got the 6 roller PTO pump as well.

I have a 55 gallon unit, and 50 gallons will make the front end very light. Originally I used 3-42# suitcase weights but had to add 2 more home made weights to bring the total weight up to about 225 #'s in the front.

I used it last night up in the orchard and 2000 rpm will spray over 30' vertically at 100psi.:fing32:

Thanks

I have 5 suitcase weights that I use with the 460lb box blade and used them with the Landpride 5 1/2 ft disks. The 2320 is abit heavier so it should be ok. It is rated for 1120 lbs 2ft back from the lift links. and that sprayer full should only come in at bit over 625lbs as it weighs 110lbs and 62 gallons is abt 517lbs.

I sure hope it does show today as I need to get some spraying done, assuming the wind ever stops.

And the finished product.. Actually the one is before the pump was installed, I seem to have lost a pic somewhere of the finished thing showing the pump from that side.

Looks good John. Let me know how the tow behind unit works for watering. Did you sneak a gator purchase past me, that I don't know about?:fing20:

Geeze can't get anything by you.. The CFO wanted one for her chores instead of pulling a cart now that we have Llamas (poor excuse is better than none) But it got me a JD 42" lawn sweeper, the new sprayer and a Frontier BB2060 Box Blade 2 new compressors (one new little one a 400lb oldie) so I cannot complain.

Hi

Looks good. You may need some weight on the front end. If you have the JD front hitch you can cast a concrete weight to pick up with the hitch and get 250lbs of weight for almost nothing. I did that on my X475 when I had a dirt scoop on the back. Another bonus is that you just drive up to it and pick it up no lifting required. You don't want to be doing wheelies up hills while spraying.

Cheers
Brian

You have a very nice place Saskman49.. Your home is very nice. Is there supposed to be a covered front deck on the home? Looks like a door upstairs above the main door on the front. Anyhow Very nice place.. you must be very proud.

It did have an upstairs balcony in the past. We plan on redoing it maybe next year as were kinda tapped out for the rear as we did a complete kitchen makeover with all new built in appliances, all new carpets up and down stairs and new entry doors front and back, and hopefully change from electric to NG for 80% of the heat and all the hot water had the basement walls parged as it has a stone foundation as well as some other changes that were not as significant.

Thanks for the compliments though. The house is 105 years old and with luck and some TLC will stand for another 100+ years

Good luck with the new tool/toy. Looks like you will have lots of chances to use it.

How about a few gator shots for the rest of us that want one?
