Home Built Crop Sprayer

My home-built crop sprayer has a 33-ft. boom with 6-ft. breakaway extensions on the ends. It's got a tandem axle and all wheels are spaced for 30-in. rows. There's a 3-lb. Whitney valve on each boom supply to stop "shut-off dribble". It's fitted with an Ace hydraulic centrifugal pump. Total cost to build it was less than $2,000, a big savings over any commercial unit.
