    watch out for those racks.
    I passed a competitor the other day.
    His rack broke at the welds when he went over a bump on the highway.
    I use a trailer instead.

    Thanks, I use a trailer now just hate to pull it sometimes.
    The new racks are $700 seems high to me. Might get
    a better one if i have it made.

    we have a rack that we no longer use. Funny, but i have more faith in the rack than i do with the ride-on. used the rack daily for a couple of seasons (when we ran flat bed trucks)...pretty solid.

    I believe we paid $500 then.

    scweedman,
    This is a common yet easy fix. If you have centuri model the unloader valve is inside tank...If you have ultra model the unloader valve is on top of the tank. With machine off and tank empty on centuri model put your applicators gloves on and goggles too and unscrew the black top and clean any sediment off with clean water. Next put a gallon or so of clean water in spray tank and with both nozzle valves in the off position start and run pump with the unloader valve top off as this will flush out any sediment inside the valve. Screw top back on and happy spraying!

    I have the Ultra
    It is located in the bottom middle and has a cloth like material
    on it connected to a hose.

    scweedman,
    He is talking about the black valve on the top of the tank. The one with the short hose coming from the tank where the water shoots back into the tank if the nozzles are off and the pump is on. If you take the top off, liquid shoots out of it.
