Mini-Buggy Sprayer
DeJong Welding, Sheridan, Oreg., has come up with a spray rig that doubles as a dry fertilizer applicator. The "Mini-Buggy" features a 151 cu. in., 4-cyl. gas engine with a 4-speed manual transmission. It has a 104-in. long wheelbase and is 60 in. wide, equipped with flotation tires. Its spray tank interchanges with a dry fertilizer hopper.
"It's a lightweight, high-flotation spray buggy with three wheels so you don't double-track your crop," says Michael D. Brown, manager of De Jong Welding. "The steel spray tank holds 200 gal. and has a mechanical agitator. The sprayer's equipped with a centrifugal pump and electric boom control valves. Booms can be, custom-built to any size needed. The machine has a rear axle rated at 7,500 lbs. and weighs 4,300 lbs. empty.
"The heavy-duty components are especially good in rough terrain while the light weight of the machine lets you go through soft spots without leaving deep tracks," says Brown, noting that you can switch from flotation wheels to narrow wheels for in-crop work.
