Ok guys here's the flood tip install

I have been promising to do this for weeks here it is.So first step was head down to LT Rich to get the parts.Ray took me to the assembly area to get the parts I would need.They had about 15-20 machines going together plus Andy was heading to Grand Rapids Michigan for a show.The new junior 36 with a boom was pretty cool and will probably be my next machine.Any ways back to the flood tip.They gathered all the parts I needed and gave me instruction on how to install it.Back at the shop I gathered up the tools I needed a uni-bit,5/8 wrench,and 3/8 nut driver.All I needed to supply was 2 wire ties,and Teflon tape.First I installed the valve you need to remove the plug on the valve tape the threads and install.I had to remove the pump hose to get enough room.Run the hose down to front of boom.Measure to find the center and drill hole big enough to fit the elbow into.install hose clamp push the fitting through then tape up fittings install filter,and tip.I put two wire ties just to make sure hoses stayed put.I took pics of boom spray pattern,then flood tip pattern.Both at 35 psi for 3 seconds.The whole install took me 1/2 an hour and was very easy to do.The tip sticks out 4 inches but is behind the front bumper.

I think I will use this more than I had planned. This is all you need to install. Thanks Ray for your help!

Nice job but i would have mounted it up and behind the boom thats what it's for to protect the nozzles one of these days it will get broke off . it's like running around with a 3 ft nose sooner or later your going to close it in the door

Its behind the bumper so I feel it's somewhat protected.The worst that could happen is break the plastic elbow wich is less than a buck at farm stores.

ok, bob, you are the SH(T!

that was a great install and the pics were excellent. this makes me def want one now, if you put the psi at closer to 40 does it get to 15 ft?? i would like that even more, but dont know if it would casue too much drift as i already use our booms at 30-35psi. this is more gpm so maybeok,

Rod, chime in here and tell us what you expereinced with this , what psi and if you truly get a 15ft pattern instead of bobs 13ft?
