ATV Sprayer Runs Cheap, Gets Into Wet Fields
"You can spray crops a lot less expensively with an ATV sprayer and go places you'd never go with a pickup or tractor sprayer," says Tom Turbes about his company's new high-flotation, pull-behind ATV sprayer.
  The "Quality Built Sprayer" mounts on four 25 x 12 x 9 flotation tires equipped with high speed hubs. The tires are adjustable on the axle to fit any row width (wheel spacing ranges from 54 to 90 in.). The tandem axle sprayer is equipped with a Honda 5 hp engine and either a centrifugal or roller pump and available with either a 110 or 150-gal. tank. Boom width is 28 or 30 ft., with nozzles spaced 20 in. apart. The boom comes with spring-loaded breakaway hinges and its height is adjustable from 18 to 36 in.
  Optional accessories include a handgun and 15-ft. hose, foam marker, 2-in. ball coupler, manual fence line kit, 5 1/2 hp Honda engine, rinse tank with hand rinse, and Calc-an-acre monitor.
  The base sprayer, equipped with a 150-gal. tank, 30-ft. boom, and centrifugal pump, sells for about $3,600 plus S&H.
  A 2-wheel model is also available with a 55, 85, or 100-gal. tank and with boom sizes of 10, 15, 21, 28, or 30 ft. A 2-wheel model with an 85-gal. tank and 21-ft. boom sells for about $2,600 plus S&H.
