Best Spot Sprayer
I'm sending along a photo of what I think is the best spot sprayer in the country. I've used this Honda 90 trail bike for 20 years on my farm. To make the sprayer, I made a frame out of 1-in. angle iron and fitted it with two pieces of 8-in. dia. stove pipe. Each pipe carries a 4-gal. capacity hand pressure spray tank. The pistol grip spray nozzles fit into tubes on each side made out of 2 1/2-in. dia. boiler tubing with flared upper ends. The tank carrier quickly slips on or off so I can use the scooter to check fence or round up cattle. I mounted the largest possible knobby tires on the rear and a 68-tooth rear drive sprocket to give me lots of power and traction. The bike is narrow enough to follow any cow trail and go through narrow gates. It's been worth its weight in gold on my farm. (Conrad Morasch, 22821 S E. 20th St., Camas, Wash. 98607)
