VW Spray Rig
"It's great for post-emergence work in corn and soybeans or for low volume Roundup application just before corn emerges," says B. Jerome Schulte, Canton, Ohio about his "VW" spray rig built with the engine, transmission, clutch, brakes and steering wheel from a wrecked Volkswagen.
"I wanted a light load machine with a narrow wheel track. The tank holds about 100 gal. and has an extra large filler hole because I bolted the bottom of a large plastic jug to the opening for quick and easy fills. Wheel spacing is wide enough to straddle four 30-in. corn rows. The boom folds out to cover 12 30-in. rows. Height of boom can be raised or lowered with two bolts. Nozzles are spaced on 30-in. centers.
"Putting the booms down keeps most of the spray pattern off corn when using Banvel plus 2-4D and it leaves only a minimal track in drilled soybeans."
