View Full Version : New Skid Sprayer/ Shop Pics

03-04-2009, 03:01 PM
I am in the process of building a new spray unit. The old one i have out grown so this winter i got the plans put together for a new setup. This is how far i have gotten in one day. Should have it completed later this week. Its going to be a two 110 gallon tank sprayer with electric hose reel. Also will be able to lift the unit in the back of the truck with the forklift. That is what the forklift pockets are for on top. I use the shop at my dad's work sometimes for the larger project. I would says its a 40x80 with two bifold doors. Also has a heated floors which is great in the winter time.

I saw your truck at Dairy Queen in Norwood on Monday! I didn't know you had a Ford, just thought you had a Dodge. I just thought it was a different Andy's Lawn Care

Yep that was me coming back from Minnesota Wanner. I got everything from them besides the tank and saddles. I got the ford this past fall for snow removal.

I will get some updated pictures in a few weeks when its starts to warm up around here. Still have everything put away for the winter. I don't know how to weld and my buddy that is doing it will not be back till friday to finish the engine and pump mounts. The ford has 182,000 miles on it and still going good knock on wood. The ford will be used for lawn spraying and for cleanups.

Well here is how far i have gotten so far. The past few days have been busy with little time to work on the sprayer. I have to make a mount for the motor and pump behind the tank yet. Should be able to get that accomplished on Monday, then finish painting and connect everything.
