2nd weekend tring to get on the school field to spray and its 40 mph winds again, all weekend both weekends. Worst part of it is I know they will call Monday and want to know how much I got sprayed.
next year Im going to try pre emergent and see if I get a bigger spraying window.


Just had to vent. By the way what type of spray are you guys broadcasting for pre-emergent???

Is there a time in the morning or at night when the wind calms down?

Get a hood for your sprayer. You can set it right at ground level and big winds won't even drift.

They work that well?
Do you know who makes them for an 18ft boom?

This is the brand I had. I never used it , I bought it to resell it. It had 3 booms about 8' wide each with electric lift. It would spray around 24' I think. Look for used ones from a golf course or school district.

This is the actual one I had. I paid around Can $250 for it and sold it for around $1000. Some School districts aren't allowed to spray anymore so they can be bought cheap.

Wind doesn''t stop me... www.prolawnsprayshields.com

I use the grasshopper mounted sprayer, and use it on my biggest accounts... 11 ft swath @ 4mph in any wind... thats about 3500 sq ft per minute.

Our local inspector told me that the application area (inside the shield) will always have 0 mph winds, so I could 'theoreticly' spray in any weather.

That's good enough for me :)

Did I mention customers love it? it's so 'enviormentally friendly'
