Ok, so here we go again, another side project, but working toward some kind of goals. This one was presented by the wife, so I figured I would give you guys a little info on the back story and where this is going.
As you know from previous posts, I took my blower and mounted it on the rear of my 140. Well winter moved in rather quickly and I did not get it powered the way I wanted to. The shaft for it was connected to a belt running under the machine to some pulleys to the front PTO. Thank goodness I did not have to run it this last winter. As you also know, I recently built an engine hoist mounting trailer to move a Van Norman #12 mill to my basement. Lastly, we had our yard sprayed for the first time this year, which they spray it 8 times, and it came to a grand total of $160. It went up $10 from last year. So, as the wife was working on paying the bill, she looked over and said, you know that sprayer you talked about building last year...build it.
So, here are some things you are gonna see:
- Finish the 3 point hitch PTO that was modified from a model 33 tiller braket
- Take the trailer(that was designed for this) and make the sprayer skid that can be bolted to it
- Use a PTO style pump (HYPRO 4101) to plug into tractor
So here is my first question:
- Does any of you more experienced guys have any recommendations for sprays to use in the amazing state of Connecticut, where almost everything is banned unless you are a licensed sprayer? Keep in mind, I am only 15 minutes from Lyme, CT where the disease came from and I would like something that kills those nasty little bugs. We currently use ASPENN for spraying, and it would be good to use something like they do. Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated.
