Next upgrade for z-sprays

Just pondering and I thought that having multi spray tips/nozzles on my machine would be great. I hate changing spray tips to spray different products. For example, I would like to spay dismiss at .5 gal per K and then back over to .25 gal per K for weed control. Acclaim @ 1 gal per K and back over to weed control @ .33 per K. I was driving behind a sit down spray machine on a trailer that had 3 nozzles like a star for each spray section. I have the interminate with 3 tanks.

Is this what your looking for they even have ones that you can turn on and off with a electric solenoid. That would be the cats meow. But will they fit in a Zspray boom. Good luck

Good idea but you will also need separate hoses. U need to get the new product from its tank to pump to nozzle.

I have considered running a separate pump and hose for my aux tank for spraying prosedge or revolver. But I'm not smart enough to know if I can run everything off the battery currently on the zspray or how to run the setup.

Wow. You are going to need three separate tanks, pumps, and hoses running to its own nozzles on the boom. There will also have to be separate switches for each product as well. I have to wonder if this is even a good idea. Revolver and Prosedge are not like Three Way in terms of product stability after being mixed. Not to mention, how expensive those products are.

Its a lot easier to apply everything at the same rate of gallons per thousand and just make a fill chart for the product according to the amount needed per 1000 sqft.
Calibrate once and done.

Or calibrate several times and just adjust the pressure for different products.

Or adjust he speed--half as fast for double the gallonage rate.

LoL, I forgot all about that. A fill chart would be useful.
