    No.. The only attachment listed for the 727A, on John Deere's website, is a two bag bagger system.

    I have made several attachments for my 727A myself as I like the smaller frame size. I've attached a photo of my 25 gallon sprayer system I fabricated using a FIMCO sprayer and the front mount weight rack that holds normal 40 lb. suitcase type weights.

    Coincidentally, I am just starting up a fabrication company to manufacturer powered (electric) OCDC for John Deere Z-Traks and Dixie Choppers to start with. Hustlers, Scag and others to come. We're going to be making other attachments as we go.

    Do you spray w/ the boom set that high???? I used to have a setup like that on my Lazer till I bought a PermaGreen. Unless you spray on a perfectly calm day at a real slow ground speed, I would think the drift from your setup would be hard to control at that height???

    I know I guy that made one of these. He uses a 10 gallon tank in front instead of weights and can spray a lot more ground than the 25 gallon alone. I agree that boom is way to high.

    I guess that I beg the differ on that . It looks like that is a boomless sprayer and they are set at those types of heights just to get the distance that they need to get to spray there intended spray width.

    That is the factory height of the sprayer and the droplet size is large enough to control the drift. It does not come out as a fine mist.
