500-Gal. Spray Tank Bolts To Back Of 3-Pt Sprayer
My 500-gal. spray tank mounts on a 2-wheel frame that bolts to the back of a 3-pt. sprayer. It provides an extra 500 gal. of storage if you already have saddle tanks on your tractor, or it can be used as the primary spray tank. The caster wheels follow in the same track as the tractor. It's also easy to back up. Part of the weight of the tank is shifted onto the 3-pt.,
taking some of the weight off the assist wheels and reducing compaction. The wheels can be adjusted to fit 30 or 22-in. rows. Larger 750 and 1,000-gal. tanks are also available.
I also custom build heavy-duty sprayers equipped with 60 to 90-ft. long front-mount booms that fold to a width of 16 1/2 ft. and a height of 12 ft. 4 in. One model folds to only 12 ft. wide. The front-mount booms provide good visibility. There's a 14-in. support wheel on each end of the boom on the 60-ft. model and two wheels on the 75 to 90-ft. models. Spring-loaded end sections at the ends of the boom snap back out of the way if you hit a pole or fence. The sprayers mount on oscillating tandem axles that can be adjusted in width from 60 to 120 in. depending on row spacing. Either 3-pt. or pull-type models are available. Tank size is 750 or 1,000 gal. (Tom Turbes, Turbes Enterprise, Rt. 1, Box 255, Lamberton, Minn. 56152 ph 507 752-7713)
