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?
If you play with the pressure you can get more out of it never measured it because I was comparing at same psi.Ray is going to get some more info on the tips and let us know.I turned the pressure up and it was at least 15 ft this tip really wets.My pics were at 35 psi. Rod has the same blue tip but may run higher Psi .

Awesome Bob!

Thanks for the detailed photos! I would say there will be a lot of boomless tips added before spring.

I will have to look as I can't remember which tip we are running. Either blue or green...but not sure. I will also have to check on the psi as I can't remember that either.

I don't run the equipment anymore and also due to the holidays the details have left my mind .

I was getting a good 15 ft though and it throws a good pattern. I definitly wouldn't want to use in a windy day though.

This is for what we call "Iowa type lawns" or sports turf ect.

I only use in cemetaries and wide open spaces.

creech,

Are you using that while spreading fert also?

That means you are overlapping with this nozzle?

Spray only thus far!

If we are spraying and ferting we just use the boom and spread.

I wouldn't be afraid to though as you can run you fert just about 1-3 ft past the spread pattern just like the PG does.

I love the boom so we only use the boomless option for special ocasions.

The greatest form of compliment is to copy. That is just what your doing with this tip use and application. A copy of what the T3000 does.

Is that why you are building a boom for the "T"?

Or better yet is that why you are building a ride on?
