Automatic Shut Off On Sprayer
I put an automatic shut-off on the sprayer I use along with my planter. I tapped into the single-acting hydraulic system of the planter to activate a lift cylinder (salvaged from a combine reel) that's tied into a manual spray control lever. When I raise the planter it shuts the sprayer off. When I lower the planter, it turns it back on. I ran a pressure line up to a guage in the tractor so I can be sure the valve doesn't fail. I also have a manual valve up by the operator that lets me turn the sprayer off when crossing water-ways, etc. I use a similar setup on my grain drill.
