Hood Kit For Self-Propelled Sprayers
You can spray when itís optimal time for your fields and get more consistent coverage with this new broadcast hooded retrofit kit for self-propelled sprayers, according to Willmar Fabrication, LLC, Willmar, Minn.
  The SPK645 kit is engineered to fit specific self-propelled sprayer models including certain Deere, Case, and RoGator models. The kit includes Redball Gen II poly hoods, lightweight aluminum receiver brackets, hardware to mount hoods on center section, and right and left primary boom sections. The hoods are 20 in. wide, with multiple hoods per section. Spray nozzles mount inside each hood.
  The hoods are designed to allow for more effective spraying of field borders. University of Nebraska field trials have shown that compared to open booms, the new hood design helps limit spray drift an average of 90 percent.
  In most cases, the hoods are designed to cover up to 60 or 70 ft. The kitís approximate weight is 9 lbs. per foot.
  Initial installation takes about 10 hrs. After initial installation, hood assemblies can be put on or removed in about 10 min.
  The company is working on specific kits for most self-propelled sprayer brands.
  Sells for $415 per foot.
