Herbicide Spraying - Vehicle Set-ups

    Hi All,

    Has anybody got a successful spraying vehicle set-up that they would like to sprook about?

    We are changing the way we approach spraying and are looking at having a spray vehicle that can provide a multi-function output for our sporting field needs and also our Rural roads and Roads Authority spraying.  We are aiming to have it a one man operation, at least the majority, however, a two-man operation may be our fall-back.

    Thanks All...

    We use a std 60HP tractor (fitted with cabin pressuriser) with a rear mounted Quikspray unit with spray bars for wide area spraying, for road side it has a front mounted LH or RH side removable tilting bar with "dangling" spray nozzles so that guide posts and culvert edges can be done, all controlled from cab, "workmen ahead" signs carried on spray frame.
