JD 6000 sprayer
Not sure if many of you have even seen these, but these are
used extensively down south for crop spraying by cotton and
tobacco farmers. Very nice to have that air conditioned cab
when its 95 degrees w/90% humidity in the summer. This is
also coming up on auction.

Re: JD 6000 sprayer
Lance my Dad used those to spray for years. I went to his
house yesterday and he just got a new 4260 CIH sprayer
though. That is one sharp unit I also got to checkout his
new "toy" as he called it, a STX 375 Quad track, That is one
sharp tractor with leather seats and chrome controls in the
cab.Very Nice. Pics to come soon.-Matt
Re: JD 6000 sprayer
I think the last one he had was a 6500 with a wide front
Re: JD 6000 sprayer
Matt, a sprayer the size of a 4260 or a JD 4710 or 4700
would be waaaaay too large for our fields. 60' booms are
wide enough for us. I bet that STX was impressive, I've
never seen one up close, just photos. Heard they are great
horses though. Guess we'll stick w/the 9250 for awhile.

Re: JD 6000 sprayer
Lance I can't say for sure his 9370 Quad was impressive Dad
wouldn't let me parade it around his muddy fiels with the
subsoiler but I'm sure it won't dissapoint. Take care-Matt
Re: JD 6000 sprayer
Lance I'm a little ignorant when it comes to cotton and
tobacco but I plant 30" corn rows and 15" soybeans what kind
of row spacing do you use on crop such as cotton and tobbaco
as well as your other crops and there is this new "thing"
going around up here on soybeans with less than 30" rows
that people are building their own planters or they modify
their excisting ones to leave a 30" wheel track and that
track matches up with all their equipment so they only have
on track every planter width that gets all the traffic I
even know of a wheat grower 20 miles south who does this any
thing like that in your part of the country? Take care.
Re: JD 6000 sprayer
Matt we normally plant on 30 or 36 inch rows. That's corn,
tobacco, and cotton. Usually we drill soybeans. Lots of guys
drill and plant their beans. I haven't seen too many
"rigged" up planters around here as you speak of, guess our
part of the country is "slow" to adapt to changes like
that.:-D Take care,
