 Roundup tank pull behind sprayer with boom

Anyone have any experiance with a "FIMCO Industries" trailer tank sprayer? Hope I did not mess up but I bought one, a 15 gal. tank on a trailer with a boom covering a 80" swath. 2.1 GPM at 60 psi. Has a 12v demand Diaphrapm pump says it Roundup ready? That is what I need it for. The price was right new at $227.00 small but I hope it puts out enough gpm for my needs of roundup applications? Any comments or suggestions? I do have the reciept still and have not took it out of the box yet.

 Roundup tank pull behind sprayer with boom

sounds like a good buy. your probley going to wish you went with a larger tank though. then again I guess it all depends on how much area you want to spray, as you will go through 15 gallons rather fast.

 Roundup tank pull behind sprayer with boom

Plots1
OK, Talk to me my friend! Here is my master plans for the uses. (biggest projects first) I have 10 acres open field (old hay field) I plan to kill it off completely, Mow it close to the ground first sign of warm weather, then the June 1rst First spraying, wait 4 weeks and spray it again. wait anouther 3 weeks and disk the living heck out of it, (If I cant get down to 3" or so I will till it ) wait for any new growth from disturbed weed seeds and round up it for the last time.
So 10 acres hit 3 times with RU.

I have another (full) 2 acre field in the back of my 160 acre woods that needs the same attention as the bigger field but needs a few weeks of rock picking in it also. I have also anouther 2-3 acres that is active in crops.
I also may elect to spray around 1- 1 1/2 miles of trails (dont know yet though, maybe just cut em and forgetem) Laughing out loud.
SO total will be 12 acres 3 times this year. Not too much I guess but I realixe it will take more time than if I had a larger tank.
Your conclusion???? How many times would I need to mix the round up for the bigger field each time? In other words, on average how much acreage can I expect to get out of 15 gallons of mix? I have one field that looks as good as yours in one of your pics, amazing what the right ph and fertilizer will do for a draw, (you know what I mean anyway)
Thanks for responding???

 Roundup tank pull behind sprayer with boom

Brokenarrow, I really don't know anything about Fimco brand sprayers. But I have had lots of experience with Roundup, so I'll just share a few thoughts. Roundup is a nonselective herbicide, meaning it kills any plant it contacts other than roundup ready soybeans, corn, cotton, etc. I really don't know how low you can go on volume and still have roundup be effective, but using 60 lbs. of pressure in even the slightest breeze is going to let the product drift farther than you think and will kill things you did'nt want dead. To be safe you need lots of volume, a coarse spray pattern nozzle, and low pressure to prevent drift. Most farm supply stores have low drift high volume nozzels basicly intended for roundup, 2-4-D, and other such herbicides that can drift onto adjacent things, no matter how well equiped you are never spray when the wind can carry the product toward another plant you don't want damaged or killed. I'd have to dig out some spray nozzel charts, but I dont think a 15 gal. tank with the correct nozzels will get you very far. You may have a nice neighbor lady who brings over a fresh apple pie when you plow her drive, but if you smack her prize petunias with roundup things may change. Enjoy the day, Frank.

I would not cut it close before spraying with roundup I find it works much better if you get good coverage on the weeds or grass

 Roundup tank pull behind sprayer with boom

I'm not sure how much you'll be mixing , but 15 gals at that psi don't seem like you get far before remixing. I think you should get with a neibor that does a lot of field work and listen an learn, that is what I do. Them old boys can learn you things fast beings they tried it all and seem to know the best and fastest way to prepare a field.

 Roundup tank pull behind sprayer with boom

I have used a 15 gal spot sprayer on my quad to spray hawthorn saplings and was real surprised on how often I had to remix, but then I was really soaking then as to be sure they were killed off. didn't like them future tire destroying tree growing! Them tree's will spread like a house fire if you don't get a handle on them.

 Roundup tank pull behind sprayer with boom

I've used Roundup to control weed and brush along some old stone walls, but have always applied it with a hose end applicator or hand-carried tank. For the acreage you have, I think you should look at a much larger tank, and check if you can get a generic glyphosate in bulk. Most literature on the net gives rates of around 4 pounds per acre of the glyphosate, which is a gallon of 41% concentrate. You have to dilute it so the vegetation is well covered, as it is absorbed thruogh the leaves and stems. Any that runs off is wasted, as ground contact inactivates it. It is also quite expensive, if purchased in the retail 1/2 or 1 gallon bottles. Best retail I've seen here is 1-gal of 50% at around $60, if my memory is correct.
Just my 2-cents...

WOW, I guess I will have to do a little unpacking with the sprayer. The box says roundup ready so I guess I will need to see how far I can go on the 15 gal. tank. Its not to late to get a 25 galloner. Thanks for the input.

BrokenArrow,
Just a short followup: Tne 4 lbs/acre was for brush control using Honcho, a generic glyphosate. You'll have to check the specifics for whatever you use, as there are different salts of glyphosate. Some make the mixture extremely corrosive (will cause Permanent eye damage) which is not the case with the trademarked Roundup.
I've seen rates of from well under 1 lb-acre for use on some crops to 'drill holes in stump and fill with undiluted product' I'm thinking of getting big a sprayer myself, but am still very undecided as whay I really need...
