Does anyone use a mixing/rinsing system or does everyone do it by hand?
I pour from 2.5 gallon jugs. I have an inside-the-tank measuring bucket. So i never need carry a measuring bucket full of herbicide up a ladder to my hatch cover.
I park my truck on containment rinsing pad. State law.
We use a bulk filling station (no......NOT gasoline)
Capacity = up to 5000 gallons of fert plus up to 2000 gallons of water. We often nearly use up the 2000 gallons of water each morning, so we have a garden hose with a "float" shutoff (with backflow device) to keep it filled. We empty the 55 or 30 gallon drums of herbicide into 2 1/2 gallon jugs to make measuring easier.
We can fill a 300 gallon spray tank in less than four minutes using a trash pump (Northern Tool & Equipment) and a digital flow meter (Sprayer Specialties, Inc). We use 3" and 2 1/2" hoses with quick disconnects on our spray tanks.
This system is not that expensive, but it works like a champ. Hope this gives you ideas.
Do you have any pictures that you could share. That sounds exactly like what we are interested in setting up. Thanks for your help.
