Default sprayer for ATV ...

I'm going to need to spray two large areas on my land to kill grass and weeds for future replanting, one plot is 8 acres, another is a little over 7 acres.
Which works better on an ATV, a pull-behind sprayer or one that is mounted onto the ATV itself? Price will also be a big issue.

For smaller tanks I much prefer the ones that mount on the fourwheeler. Easier to maneuver in tight brush areas. Plus you don't have to worry about flats with a trailer pull-behind. I use my four wheeler tank to spray fencelines and tight areas that my tractor can't get.

For larger applications I got a 150 gallon 3-point mounted tractor sprayer. Same reasons as stated above, but allows me to cover larger pastures.

That's what works for me and my application.

I much prefer one on the ATV with a boomless tip. Still 15 acres is a lot of spraying for a atv sprayer but doable.

Pull behind will be able to carry more fluid but they are more expensive. I have a 40 gallon I carry in my rhino with a boneless nozzle. I'm calibrated at 12 gallons an acre. So your water availability will be an issue. An ATV will haul a full 25 gallon sprayer at best. Where you located I have a spraying side business I may could quote you cheaper than you buying everything?

I’d go with the 30gal mounted on back of atv. It will spray about a 12ft width. I have a pull behind and rack mount and they both have there uses. The pull behind works great behind my lawn mower in the yard for pre emergent and herbicide treatments.

Atv mounted and BOOMLESS! No need in adding flat tires to a simple process

Top nozzle is on my 25 gallon tank called a “boominator” will spray about 16’ with a 1.8 gpm pump

Bottom nozzles are on my 500 gallon rozell and spray about 30’ @45 psi. These are the only 2 I would have. @&$^ a bunch of booms. Unless you just like to weld things that break... them get booms

Mounted to the atv would work best. That tow behind would probably flip. Is there no feed store near by that you can rent a big rig from?

Do have a decent size disk and shredder? Shred and then disk a few time to kill the grass and weeds.

that was my concern with the pull-behind. There are farmers around me with rigs but haven't gotten any quotes from them.
I'm needing to kill stuff permanently for replanting later, am thinking the spraying would be better than just discing.

Here’s a boomless in action I use to spray food plots and around feeders.

Each side can be turned off if needed.

I have a pull behind from northern tool. It works good on the small plots, but 15 acres is a lot of strips.

Those pull-behind are a real pain if you have to back up...

10-4 on the shredding first.
Our field are so thick with grass I doubt we will get much a kill this year. And we poisoned heavy last year.

Be careful turning if you put it on the back rack. I did it for years with a 25 gallon sprayer on the back rack of my ATV, with no problems. Turned too fast and too sharp this year and ended up pinned under the **** thing. Didn't have a cellphone or anything with me. Finally cut the straps holding the sprayer on and was able to lift the ATV off of me. Good thing was I finally got some color on my scrawny white legs.
