    I have 2 1/2 acres to spray burn down on, then to plant soy beans.

    There are Lots of trees and shrubs around.

    I have the chemical and anti-drift.

    Is there something like a weed whip that you can drag behind?

    Any recommendations would be appreciated

    I would be interested in hiring somebody On Wednesday May 23, 2018 near Clifton, Il, If anybody is close and interested in such a small job.

    Any suggestions on getting this done would be appreciated.

    Wondering about something like this. It says it goes on the front of the tractor. This one is 5" wide . I would like a little wider.

    Do they make something to go on the back of a tractor, 4 wheeler or whatever that hooks to the sprayer pump?

    Are you a soybean grower--or--do you intend to plant soybeans as a source of natural nitrogen?
    Perhaps you intend to kill the beans and over seed with grass about 8 weeks before frost.

    What exactly does this post mean?

    I have no idea what you were trying to say. Use your words

    Not much help for me there.

    If you want the money, make the part - I probably have most of the PVC here and come over and get the grass and weeds killed.

    Or just come over and kill the weeds.

    Exactly how many dollars worth of PVC and fittings are in the picture?

    Wasn't there also a bracket or something?

    If you have something that will do the job better, I am looking.

    Why does it say this unit goes on the front of whatever machine you are using? I would think the back would be better, so you are not immediately driving over what you just applied.

    Unless you are driving back to a road immediately from what you are spraying, I could see an issue with dead tracks

    We'll get in there with a chainsaw and loppers hedge trimmer and such and remove and burn the brush... I don't understand why or what the PVC thing will do?!?

    You use chainsaws on grass and weeds?

    Burndown = Roundup What exactly do you think I am doing?
