Perfet, thanks for that, set up is very simple and straight forwards, helps me a bunch.

Will save the photos of the convertion and belt set up for reference if you do not mind,

Like the simple belt set up you mentioned in earlier post with the shredder/grinder regarding using the sleeve hitch lift for tensioning of the belt.

The sprayer is a nice touch, new to me, 20 gallon ?

 

Yes, the setup using the tractor lift is slick...I had hydrolift to apply down pressure, and add tension to the belt, but using a manual lift and sticking a pin in the quadrant to hold the lever with pressure would work great too.

 

The sprayer is also a MacKissic...a model AC-TS.  It's 22 gallon, and weighs 95# dry.  It is still offered in other applications (parts available, new) through MacKissic.  I'm not sure when they discontinued the Simplicity-mount design, but know this was offered as an allied attachment for AC and Simplicity through at least the early to mid '70's.

Bingo ! was just looking at the manual thinking about that.

The sprayer set up puts me in mind of the ones the tube frame Bolens used, i take this was the same sprayer used ?

Would love that for the orchard.
