Poncho, nice job, that's a nice looking FORD tractor you got there. What year is it?

Sure it broke when I ran it into a telephone pole but it only took about 5 min. to make another one.
i made something very similar using rifle holders for an atv, they broke from bouncing, how are yours holding up?

Didn't even think about the wind. Good for you man.

It holds up pretty good... Unless you hit a telephone pole

The great thing is that it only takes about 10 min to make another one and a little while for the glue to dry. I'm sort of glad it breaks easy, I'd much rather replace the trimmer rack than a hydro pump or something.

a skid sprayer. nothing original, just useful. i have a 400 gal. tank for spraying lawns, but i needed a smaller, better way to make larger amounts of insecticide and fungicide without having to use the big tank, or accidentally mix products. it saves a lot of mixing on the job, and its 35 gal, 12 volt, i plug it into my trucks trailer plug.

I have something just like that, but I just use it for a nurse tank for my atv sprayer. I have a 65 gallon tank and have it hard wired to the truck because I usually have the trailer when I'm using it.

Except for your middle initial, you have the same name as me.
