Sprayer Made From 1949 IH Tractor
Key to versatility of the tractor-sprayer are the rear tractor tires. Gallaher widened the tread of the tractor's 11 by 38 tires by splicing an 8-in. wide piece of metal into the rims. When finished, the tires were 20.8 by 38.
"It's not hard to do. I used 8 ga. metal and just beat it into a circle with a hammer and welded it into place," says Gallaher, who's made the modification on other equipment. He's currently making a spray tractor out of a 1951 Farmall "M" which, he says, will be the "Cadillac" of farm tractor sprayers.
