    Chemical mowing at its best. Have to start 20 acres tomorrow and a total of 7 miles of silt fence, both sides. Stakes, pins and lot signs. Not to mention another week worth of bush hogging starting next week.

    Its a blast. especially when I dont get along with the guy who lives next door, so friday I had to calibrate it, so all i had in it was plain water and bullseye indicator, and had around 25 gallons of mixed water left. He was on vacation so i used the high pressure hand gun to dye his pool pretty blue. Hopefully the color stays until he gets back.

    correction. It is the most dull mind numbing thing I have done yet. At least bush hogging you can see the difference as you go. All this doe is turn everything blue for now. Another full day of it tomorrow.:hammerhead:

    You can always put a nurse tank in the bucket of the tractor. Lift the loader to fill the spray tank and cover more ground. :laugh:

    Lol. now thats an idea.

    Hindsight being 20/20 I should have gotten the 100 gallon instead of the 55.

    Oh well, they pay by the hour, so who cares. They are happy so I am happy.

    Glyfosate only. Acres and acres of glyfosate.

    Wow! 7 miles of silt fence is a lot! I just removed about 250 feet of double row Type "C" silt fence and it was a PITA! Armed with a post puller and a 9000 pound winch I finished last Saturday. Do to the location of the fence it had to be removed by hand.
