Looking for sprayer recommendations

First off, I've never owned (or operated) any kind of sprayer except the little tank-sprayers that have a hand held wand and a shoulder strap.

With the arthritis in my knees walking around lugging a sprayer, isn't much fun anymore.

What I'm wanting to do, is upgrade and get a 3-pt mounted sprayer that will cover 20-30 feet for spraying weeds in my pastures along ravines, creeks, grader-ditches, and other rough areas.
I don't think I need anything fancy with a "reel and wand", but a foam-marker might come in handy for some places.

I don't have a compact tractor, so anything I get will have to fit a full sized tractor.

I'd also like to keep the cost down around $1500.00 (or so) for something new.

Anybody use something like I've described, and do you like it?

If you like it, where do I go to get one?

Old,

I picked on up with a 35 gallon tank, 12 foot boom, and a wand for $500 plus $70 for a pump from Agri Supply, www.agrisupply.com, a few years ago. Works great for me and I don't think they have gone up a lot in price. They do ship if no store is near you. Its a 3pt hitch and I used it this past weekend with a Case 800, definitly NOT a compact tractor. Good luck!

Thanks for the offer Gordo, but the PDF file on the Fimco sprayer says a roller pump is "included" with this particular sprayer.

If I get the sprayer and a roller pump is NOT included, I'll most certainly take you up on your offer.

Thanks again.

If it was me... I'd be looking for a used Hardi and make sure it's got the Hardi diaphram pump.

Roller pumps will make volume but they're limited to spraying certain types of products. That might not be an issue to you if you're only spraying liquids... but you're also probably going to find the roller pump stuck every year when you go to use it, seals leaking, etc. They're just a nuisance to deal with. Their only virtue is that they're cheap.
A hardi pump will last a long time and take a fair bit of abuse... I wouldn't worry about a used one unless it's got water running out when you fill it.

Thanks Gary,... I think I've settled on the Fimco 60 gallon 3pt sprayer with roller pump from TSC for $799.00.

Thanks everyone for your replies and suggestions.

I'd keep your eyes open for an old one that you could rebuild. I bought an older Hardi pull type for $350, put a new pump, new hoses, new regulator, and tee jet tips on. I spray several hundred acres a year with it, and the total cost wasn't much over $1000. I'm thinking you could fix up a smaller one for half that?

Thanks Keith, I guess now I need to find out if a sprayer with a 12 V, 2.2 gpm pump,... is as good as a PTO powered roller pump that puts out 9.76 gpm.

I'm not familiar with either type of pump, but the sprayer with the 12 V pump IS about 1/2 the price, as the sprayer with the roller pump,... which one do you folks here on YT think would be the best choice for dependability and longevity?

Does a person "get what they pay for" with these different type sprayers?

Thanks, and I apologize for all the questions.

Roller pump is limited to types of herbicide, as opposed to centrifugal pumps, but electric pumps are not made for any serious spraying.

You will have to travel slow with a 30 foot boom for a 2.2 gallon pump to keep up your pressure.

Which means you will have to also use very small nozzles that will cause more plugging problems.

I don"t think the 12v 2.2 is what you want for a field sprayer. It will not last for long with constant flow. Then if you need agitation, depending on the chemical you use, you will not have enough volume for agitation.

just looked on Northern Tool web site: Item # 2681781, 55 gal broadcast and spot, 3 point hitch, 12 V. 2.2 gpm sprayer for 499.99. Kinda looks like what you're looking for. Keith

Yeah,... I was wondering about that too, and the wind in this part of the country seems to blow about 360 days out of a year.

Something like that might be what I'm looking for,... I don't mind making a modification or two if I have too. :D

I have a 50 gallon I got from TSC. Works good, but only has a 12' pass. A little welding and some additional tee jets might take it to 20 feet. Thirty would be asking a lot. I think it was around $300-$400 at the time, pump not included.

I have one of their catalogs,... and before posting on YT, I checked Northern's online catalog, but I can't seem to find any 3pt sprayers.
All the sprayers I see, either fit a ATV, slide into a pickup bed, or mounted on little trailers.

My mailed catalog is a 2012 Spring/Summer.

I was kind'a thinking more along the line of a much smaller sprayer, like a 50-60 gallon.

I don't think $1500 is going to do it. I checked at the local dealer on a 150 gallon/33 foot Hardi this week, Just a basic unit was $5300.

Biggest problem with a boomless is dealing with ANY wind when spraying........non-uniform coverage, drift, etc.
