    We have fitted our Junior 36 with a 3 section fold away boom equipped with Air Injected tips. We believe these tips give a more effective spray pattern than the Flood Jets we were using, and much less susceptible to wind drift. Each section can be turned on independently, giving a choice of a 2, 4, 6 or 8' spray width.

    The boom will retro fit to older JR 36 models.

    Could you go both ways with the boom and 1 flood tip ?

    Yes, but we went to the boom to get rid of the Flood Jet. We would recommend the wide angle tip from Hypro in that case.

    Cemeteries, or weed control only lawns spraying 15 ft beats a 8 ft boom!! May not use it as much as I think but if I do I will have it :) The Z-guys can add it to my machine and it will look good not garage rigged.Plus on big lawns I can open my passes and spray 15 ft to match the fert .

    Very good addition to this machine!

    Can you get a hopper ext for this unit?

    If it were me...I would have the "boomless" tip on every unit!

    Options are always better then not having any! :)
