Remote Spray Tank Gauge AlarmNew remote spray tank gauge mounts in the cab to tell at a glance how much liquid is left in the tank. It can also be fitted with a tank-fill alarm that sets off the tractor horn or other alarm when the spray tank is nearly full. It can also be set to go off when liquid drops to low levels.
The tank gauge operates off a pressure sensor that mounts in the bottom of the spray tank. A clear plastic tube runs from the pressure sensor to the gauge in the cab. The pressure of liquid in the tank is transmitted by air through the tube and pushes the colored anti-freeze up in the spray gauge. The tank fill alarm is activated by two sensors inside the gauge. When liquid reaches the contacts they operate a relay which sounds the tractor's horn, switches on a powerful red light or even stops the fill pump, depending on how it's hooked up.
Sells for $120. The "nearly full" tank guard sells for an additional $130.
