I'm setting up a small spray rig from scratch and would like some input on what style of nozzle you prefer,and what boom heights you prefer.

I've been looking into the Teejet XR and the Teejet Floodjet styles. There will be 2 nozzles on the boom,flo-jet 1.8 GPM pump.
I'll be using it to apply post- emergent herbicides,,Speedzone , Trimec, etc.
Thanks for your opinions

My sprayer that I built for my Lazer has 2 TF-5 TurboFlood nozzles spaced at 40" and about 15-18" off the ground. Works great for spraying broadleaf weed herbicides. My pump is a 3 gal. per minute ShurFlo.

I use tee-jets for all low volume applications. They have served me well for years.

Also the supplier I get them from has all kinds of great charts that show flow rates and various pressures. It was great info to have when I was setting up my rig.

Don't know if they still make them or not, but when I was in the golf course business, I was hooked on Delavan Raindrop nozzles. Excellent coverage, no streaks.

Teejet Lawnjets.

Make sure you get at least a 3gpm pump.

Yea, I think you are right,I took the sprayer out to calibrate yesterday (with the 1.8gpm pump) ,,just spraying water on dry concrete,and wasn't too impressed with the output. Ahh well that's part of the joy of "engineering" your own stuff :o




Teejet Lawnjets.

LGF: Were you refering to what TeeJet calls "Turbo TurfJet " nozzles? I've searched their site and that's all I've seen.
Thanks

Thanks Yeah that's it Turfjet.

Large droplets, wide pattern, perfect for your application.
