Boomless. Never worry about hitting anything. No moving parts. Keep it simple.

Click, click, BOOM!



Homemade and so much durable than the junk you buy. With boomless you can not control the spray around trees and shrubs, like you can with a boom.

love the boomless, i have been using one for along time, you can turn off each nozzle for better control of where your spraying, i put a lesco gun on my spray hose and also put 25' of hose, so i got some nice trim hose.

Boom less is all I run on my UTV and my large AG sprayers. Booms break I don't care how could you build them
