Nice work! I have always wanted to do something like this. I have a few gravel parking lots at a storage facility that I take care. This would be great for spraying RU there.

I like the idea of the boom mounted in the front. I am afraid though of running my tires over the chemicals or fert. What is the advantage beyond just being able to see?

I plan on mounting a hopper to a reese hitch so i can hook it up easy.

no stiff neck from looking behind you Like my 3 point spray I have I run on one of my tractors

I like to see what the boom is doing I see every tip all the time never know when one might plug up

Mine setup just for spraying now I built it back in late 90s about 5 years a go I removed the deck since it was hanging me up getting over some curbs
Then I had to had 160 lbs to front end my spreader is mounted doesn't come off unless you unbolt it

Your front deck mower would be a pain I think trying to spray lawns with

.

Nice looking design. The lower boom level will help avoid over spray.

I have my boom just as far above the ground as you do. In fact I might be just a tad higher or on top of the caster wheels. But my point is I had to do tip changing and some geometry of fan angle to get calibration and even coverage. I drive my up the street and watch how the pattern dries as my final test. I don't want any streaks.

Because my properties are very small I installed a momentary button instead of a toggle switch. I stop pushing the Button at the end of each pass to turn around. Double spraying is what I am trying to avoid.
