    How far out ahead of the ZTR's are you mounting the boom?

    I'm at 18" nozzle height, ground speed 4 mph, 6 (11003 nozzles not AI, @ 35 psi)
    (10' boom) and by the end of day have some chemical standing on locations of mower deck.

    Have looked at the 'screen' Walker has between deck /boom. Would like for all chemical to go to weeds.

    You recommendation(s) would be appreciated.

    Well, consider lowering boom as close to ground as possible. Look at manufacturer chart for recommended min / max tip height, pressure.

    No one else has this problem, except you?
