Default sprayer

I need suggestions on sprayers with a boom that will fit a polaris ranger 800!

This is the sprayer I use, its boomless (which is best for me on my uneven terrain) but I have had it for 3 years now and for the price I love it. We plant 7 acres of round up ready corn and 2.5 acres of the lickcreek rotation, this is the sprayer we use for all of that. We are talking about upgrading to a 3 point model with a boom if we can grab one for the right price.

We use a 25 gal sprayer with boom and hand wand from Cabelas and works great. We have it on our polaris 500 and its easy to put on and take off..

You could probably mount the sprayer on a pallet built to fit in your Ranger. then ratchet strap the pallet/sprayer into the bed.

Go on over to the PRC forum and do a search. There are some guys who have sprayers in their rangers with pictures.

I really like the north star sprayer, I am curious how to hook it from the bed of the polaris to the battery? It says it can be run off a 12volt, can you just buy a 12volt batter and hook it up to that?

I have a 25 gal. boomless Moultrie sprayer. It is made for a 4 wheeler, but I have also pulled it in a trailer behind a truck. The nozzles are on a piece of steel that is held to the plastic tank by two screws. You can remove the piece of steel and put the tank in the back of the UTV or trailer. The steel/nozzles can be clamped to the tailgate or to a piece of wood accross the bed, etc. A battery or jumper pack can be set in the bed with the tank.

thanks! So you do not hook it up to the battery of the 4 wheeler or UTV. I was confused on a video I watched about that!

I hook mine up to the battery of my ATV, and just strap the sprayer to the back rack with two old ratchet straps. You just have to be slightly careful on hilly terrain as the water makes you very top heavy and sloshes around.

I saw a video on youtube and the guy just ran the straps around the sprayer and then down through the gap between the tailgate, and bed on the utv.

So if I just buy a 12volt battery though, that would work right brownie?

A separate battery will work. You would of course have to charge it up as needed, but you should be able to do plenty of spraying on a charge.

thanks!

Ok so once I get this sprayer and spray my grass herbicides, do you guys mix the crop oil with the arrow or arrest?

Do you spray a crop oil later?

I am a total newbie to all of this!

You have to mix the crop oil with the clethodim or it probably won't kill the grasses at all.
