 3-pt sprayer

I had bought a 15 gal. pull behing sprayer with boom last month. After talking to alot of you and others the concenses is that 15 gal. probably would be pretty small for what I need. I have not opened the box yet and can take it back. Now that I have had it paid for, for over a month I can afford anouther (larger) sprayer.Laughing out loud. Anyway, I am thinking of going to a 3 pt sprayer for the tractor with boom. Any suggestions for this impliment? Any precautions that need to be took when spraying round up (like getting it on the tractor with over spray?)
Would anyone here NOT recomend a 3 pt sprayer? over a pull behind?

 3-pt sprayer

BrokenArrow; Far as I know Roundup wont hurt paint or corrode things from the drift, but it sure will smack your neithbor ladys prize petunias. Do you like to build things? I built my own from a 70 gal plastic fertilizer tank off a junk JD corn planter, a PTO roller pump, nozels, fittings, etc from TSC. If you prefer to buy ready built I'm sure someone makes one. I've had both, pull type and 3pt. Both have their advantages, the pull type is lots easier to unhook especially if the tank has some product left in it, but on the other hand the 3pt. is lots easier to back into field corners, that's my reason for prefering the 3pt. All kinds of pumps are available; PTO driven,(my favorite), gasoline engine driven, (noisy and sometimes hard to start and of course allways out of gas), and 12 volt electric driven pumps, there small, compact easy to mount most anywhere, but not much on volume or pressure. Sounds like I gave you more op[tions than ordering your next new Lincoln Town Car. Have a great day, Frank.

I would add one small caveat to Frank's comments, he nailed it pretty good already.

If you're going to build your own spray boom, build a few extra cross-arms onto it so that it can be covered with some fabric, like a little tent, so that the spray is completely contained.

As Frank stated, certain plants are VERY susceptible to even relatively small amounts of Roundup. Besides, it will make selective spraying, and not gassing yourself, MUCH easier

Best of luck.

 3-pt sprayer

Well this is a tough call. I have only one neighbor and she is accrossed the highway, since my pine tree plantings are next to the highway and her house is accrossed from that I can gaurentee you the wind will not be blowing toward my trees! Laughing out loud. I build things all day everyday but it just isnt the same when your not gettin paid. Since I work alot of 6 day weeks (most all the time) I am ashamed to say that when I get home and have some time off, I like to work on the habitat and would rather buy a product working at my job to pay for it than to take a weekend day off and build something. (I hope this dont make me sound like I have nothing better to do with my money, just the older I get the more I would rather do something I know I am good at than the other way around)
Getting back to the subject, any idea how spendy those roller pumps or 3-point pumps are? Just priced out a 60 gal. tank and boom/w 3-pt carrying frame at just over $450 without the pump!!! Ouch! startin to think my 15 gal. tow behind wont be that bad to keep filling with roundup for the 1/2 dozen times a year I may use it?
The 3pt would be nice for trails and some of the rough fields (all though after I RU. them and till em they will always be flat there after. Its a tough call, with all the info you guys just gave me to think about, I will atleast be able to make a better sound decision. Thanks again.

 3-pt sprayer

Just got home from my local TSC. I am in the process of building a sprayer. I paid the following for the major components:

65 gallon tank $114.00
6-roller pump $78.00
coupling $18.55
spray gun $45.00
strainer $14.00
suction hose $17.00
ball valve $12.00
Misc fittings $20.00

I am still missing a pressure releif valve. They were out of them. The place had been completely overrrun this weekend, first nice weekend in these parts. I'm guessing I'll be at $350 when I am done. I will fabricate my own torque arm and trailer which I have the parts in stock for.

 3-pt sprayer

Broken; Just a couple other thoughts. Whether you build or buy a sprayer, when you're done using roundup and want to use another pesticide to for example spray your fruit trees, tomato patch for blight, spray the lawn for grubs or whatever get a good quality tank cleaner to get all the roundup residue out of the sprayer system. I've never saw it at TSC, but most any farm supply outlets that handle larger volumes of pesticedes for farm use will have it on hand. Just follow the directions on the can, some call for leting the cleaner soak overnight in the sprayer and some don't I've used both kinds they both work. When you're done for the season pour a couple tablespoons of oil in the intake of a roller pump, turn it a few times by hand then you won't have stuck rollers the following spring. I don't remember what the tank cleaner costs, but I don't think it was all that much. We got a beautiful inch of rain over night here, the corn and bean futures will probably take a nose dive today being a good portion of the corn is planted in our aeria. the Ag business sure keeps you guessing these days, but I've allways loved a challenge. Have a big day, Frank.

Here is another option with a much less expensive components for those wanting to make a dandy pump outfit.

1-55 gal Blue plastic Barrel... 8.00 dollars bought from car wash.
1-12 volt pump at TSC with 60psi shut off switch 86.00
16 foot of 2X2 angle iron...32.00
6 foot of 3/4 galvanized pipe for the boom holding 3 spray tips. One hand wand, 1 brass valve for switching between boom spraying and wand spraying 25.00. Hose, spray tips, and clear plastic tubing. 20.00. Tractor cat 1 pins 6.00. 25 feet of goodyear 3/8ths spray hose 15.00. 2 foot of 2inch PVC for a holster for the spray wand 3.00

Weld up a 3point frame for the barrel. 12 volt pump automatically shuts off at 60ps...if you start pumping it turns on. A remote hand held switch gives you complete control from the drivers seat. Works like a charm. 3 Fan spray tips will give you an 8.5 foot spray path. The hand wand and 60psi will shoot a stream of liquid 30 feet with good volume.

Total cost......195.00

Nice work cutting the barrel cost. I had looked at used barrels, but all had some oil residue in them.

I didn't include the cost of the steel I used for the skid. It was scrap off a jobsite. The skid mounts to a 4-wheel wagon I already had.
