Have you ever seen a Z-mounted sprayer?

I am thinking about mounting a 30 gallon spray tank on the fron of my JD 777. The spray boom would be in the back hanging from the hitch. I also would like a foot switch to turn on/off the electric pump. Does anyone have pictures of something like this? What do you think? I think the 77 would handle 300 lbs on the front. What is your opinion?
Thanks in advance!

Go to this website www.jrcoinc.com. Our company installed one of these for a customer and as far as i know he really likes it. When the unit came it looked impressive.

I have built several units. I find it's cheapest to start will a pull behind unit and adapt it to your needs. My suggestions: Put the tank on the rear mounted into a 2" receiver for easy on and off. Put the boom out front and make/ use breakaway booms. Don't waste time on the boomless nozzles they are too inaccurate. Use quick couplers for the hoses so you can take it off easy. Use shutoff levers so you can take it off without emptying the tank. Do a search on my name and you will see some of the units I built. Some of the other guys here have built some nice units too. Search.

1 piece of 2 x 6, 4 heavy duty bungee straps.

Mount the sprayer to the 2 x 6 using 2 bungees, lay that over the front frame of the mower (works on my exmark 60's), and strap that to the frame on each side with the other two bungees. Been using it like that for years. Not a permanent install but it costs less than 15 bucks
