Those of us with Thick Skin always enjoyed his posts. But his cynical sense of humor is not for the faint of heart. He did keep things moving and made you want to hurry home to read his posts. He has mellowed with age and not as anti-authority as he once was. Stone and I are still good friends and he is my go to guy for advice of all kinds that I value.

Me too.

I don't do apps but I learned alot from him. He was one of the few that got me involved in lawnsite. I'll never forget the thread of one of Stone's competitors who wanted to offer health benefits to all his employees. I think it got deleted or moved.

OK, Finally installed hypro jet agitators. The water really rolls much better than stock set up. With both tanks in bypass it runs appx. 15psi. With one tank it runs about 35-40psi. Again I went with a 5gpm pump. Also switched to the 1/4 g/1000 so I can spray 5 acres with 1 fill up. Also added hand gun ext. on the reel w/ 45deg. and used same nozzle as on boom. I purchased a hypro boomless nozzle for fence rows but have yet to install it. So with the extra tank I can spray up to 7.5 acres per fill, Love it....

so are those nozzles spraying out to the sides to further your pattern for very large areas? would that then make your pattern width a good 36ft?

If that is the case...the boom/pattern is right in front of your face and arms.

Traveling a 5+mph and a slight wind and you are covered!

Not sure I understand this set up and I am not a fan (no pun intended) of it at all.

Seems like you are going to be way too high.


Please explain what you are trying to accomplish by adding this?

I think he said it was going to be used to spray fence lines. But I agree it is mounted high and would likely blow back at the operator.
