measuring cups

I put my measuring cup on my tool box yesterday and drove off with it still there and needless to say its gone. I have a junk 32oz one but wondering what y'all use. I am tank mixing on my T for right now so use it often.

We have probably 25 different ones. From 4 oz to 128 oz.

yup use several different ones,
look at getting/using a premix tank--it will make things so much
faster and easier...

I always ask my dealer for a few when I get an order. They are happy to give away a few.

I like the tip n pour bottles for liquids. Keeps things clean. But sometimes when you tip them too far , more comes out than you wanted and you ruin your whole mix.

measuring cups

I always use the round-up measuring cup.
All equipment is wore out. <- Never mind. All equipment has been repainted and with new decals. It's like I have new mower's again!
48" Ferris WB
36" Ferris WB
All Echo hand helds
<- That's how I feel at the end of the day.

Best is heavy, but transparent, plastic, which makes it easy to read the level. Best to have a cover--so--you don't have to rinse it out each time, but when covered, debris, bugs and dirt do not collect in the sticky residue in the bottom. Graduations should be in ounces and pints. Mine holds two quarts. Stable--not tippy. Metric optional.
I usually mark it with bigger numbers for easier visibility--paint marker.
Feel free to mark it for your product and tank ratio--for instance--a big wide mark at the one-tank level.
Mark it "DANGER PESTICIDE" to reduce the risk of it being used for cooking by whoever might steal it.

Naturally, be sure to have a different measuring pitcher, distinct from herbicides, for use if you spray trees, flowers and ornamentals for insects. Separate pitchers for Roundup and other products might be wise.

You need a separate small measuring cup for 1 to 8 ounce doses.
And perhaps yet another for those careful 10ml dosages.
And perhaps yet another--an eyedropper with ml graduations for mixing up a batch of Quicksilver in a hand sprayer perhaps. I used an infant medication dropper available at any drug store.

I picked up a few from my local Atwoods. (tractor supply type store) One is a gallon with ounce increments and the other is a small 32 ounce cup with ounce increments. I use the big one for tank mixing and small one for backpack/handcan mixes.
