3 Pt flat fold spray boom
"So far as we know, it's the first and only wide spray boom on the market that folds flat hydraulically right from the tractor seat," says inventor-manufacturer Verlyn Fast, Mountain Lake, Minn.
"The 20 ft. wide booms fold flat on top of the 20 ft. wide main frame without requiring any cables or chains. When the right or left boom is operated independently to spray a fence line or ditch, for example, the folded-up idle boom lies flat on top of the main frame rather than teetering vertically, as is the case with other makes of hydraulic-fold booms I've seen," notes Fast.
The 20 ft. main frame is made of 5 by 5 by 1/4-in. square tubing. Flat-fold hinges al-low the booms to flex and follow ground contour. Adjustable castor wheels are avail-able on the main frame as an option. Or, the 3-pt. rig can be used as a "suspended boom" without wheels. Boom height for broadcast or band spraying is adjustable from 15 to 30 in. Rear tongue hitch allows a large spray tank and trailer to be towed behind.
Sells for $4,345, including sprayer plumbing except nozzles and the spray pump.
