I have not been the the forum in a while. I have been in search of a solution to haul my 25 gallon Fimco tank on the back of my X485. I don't have a 3pt hitch setup.

Bottom line is I finally bought a Hobart 140 welder :thThumbsU

I have fabricated myself a mount to hold the spray rig and I am very excited. It bolts right to the bottom plate. I will post a picture up after I get it painted (going to paint it JD Yellow).

Several years ago I messed up and bought a "4 wheeler Sprayer" and boy that was a mistake!! Although now that it will be mounted on the back of the JD it will be fine. It was far to heavy for the ATV and the turning radius was far to wide.

Take care and have a great weekend!

Learning to weld well enough to make my own stuff is a dream for me. Maybe when I retire. Mounting behind the tractor is an advantage.

I made a pull-behind sprayer for my tractor that works well enough, Plastic garden wagon, Northern Equipment 25 gal sprayer for a 4-wheeler, and some iron pipe. Weighs about 100 lbs empty, my GT 235 can pull it up hills when full, the X748 doesn't know it's there. It has a 12' spray width.

I've had my sprayer mounted behind my GT235, X500, and now my X540 and love this setup!

Also when sprayer is not in use I can attach the trunk(which dumps).
