Hi-Rise SprayerI built this 4-WD, 4-wheel steer hi-rise ma-chine to control shatter cane in milo. It's fitted with an up-front weed wiper. The frame was made from 3 by 6 by 3/8-in. tube steel, has 4 ft. of ground clearance and a 90-in. wheelbase so it's very stable. Power comes from a 2.31 Ford industrial engine connected to a hydrostatic. transmission. Each wheel has its own hydrostatic motor.
The two steering axles were made out of a pair of 1370 Case front-ends. You can steer each axle independently or steer them together. The front boom raises and lowers hydraulically. !plan to build a spray boom for it to spray greenbugs, devil claws, etc. (Joe Stenger, HCR 63, Box 150, Densmore, Kan. 67633 ph 913 622-4356)
