Default Newest Project - Food Plot Sprayer

Picked up a project Little Wesley Walker Sprayer to use for spraying plots.

Got new tires put on.

Ordered a new starter and took old pumps and filters off.

Need to decide what size tank I want to put on before I go much further so can fab the tray for it.

Interesting machine - would you post some pictures of the drive and how its configured?

I have bought a couple of tanks from these folks - lots of different sizes and can also get viton tank grommets from them.

Got the middle boom frame on. There will be 40Ē wings on each side of this that fold in. I have a boom control that will allow using the three different booms separately or in any combination.

Boom parts came in today. Havenít accomplished anything the last few days. Going to work on the boom arms this week and start some paint then start on plumbing of hoses and controls.

Got the fold out parts of the boom fabbed up. Will be held forward/open with springs so if you hit something sticking out they will have some give back. Going to start working on that part now.


Will probably just have them snap together when folded in.
