OptiPhil 32292 102 Pathetic sprayer either
Pathetic sprayer
This must be the worst sprayer I have ever been in contact
with. I think an unmotivated Russian could design and build
a better sprayer than this one. :-P

Re: Pathetic sprayer
Those sprayers are not all that bad, they are used a lot
around here(NC) to spray tobacco and cotton.

Re: Pathetic sprayer
I've spent quite a few hours in a JD rowcrop-sprayer similar
to that one (in corn). Kind of an interesting
design-approach but worked really well.
I had no problems with it.

I guess it is a very cost efficient way to build a sp
sprayer to work in tall crops.

Sure bets having to spend $200,000 ofr more on a new sprayer
if you only need it for a small farm.

What is point of having 3 different wheels running crop
down?

Re: Pathetic sprayer
Those sprayers are extremely useful and reliable for row crops like cotton and tobacco and do far less crop damage than the big four wheel sprayers. They are made for row crops, not cereals, although they are also used in drilled grains. The small wheels do surprisingly little crop damage, The machines can be used to straddle 2 wide rows or four narrow rows and width is adjustable. The belly tank keeps the center of gravity low and makes the machine stable even in a three wheel configuration, although they are also available in four wheel configurations. All-wheel drive is an option. Machines like this have been in use in the southern US since the early 1960s, long before the advent of four-wheel sprayers. They are quite popular and since Deere recently stopped producing them, the values of used ones has escalated. It amazes me that people who dont know much about the machines are so quick with opinions...
