Anybody know of or make a dauber that can go on a sprayer wand for precision work? Or any similar solution that doesn’t require getting on knees to paint on gly?
cool, i like the pvc dauber. I’ll make one of those. Hopefully can control Flow so there is no drops leaking off the sponge.Here's a couple different designs.
I wouldn't trust that setup with gly.My suggestion: Use and hand sprayer or backpack. Attach a sponge to the tip with wire or a zip tie. The nozzle should go internally into the center of the sponge. Squeeze the wand handle when the sponge becomes dry and you need to moisten it with herbicide. Wipe the weeds or--press the moist sponge against them.
If you need to grab the weeds with a long-reach grabber. More difficult--however--it should be possible if you attach the sprayer wand and sponge to one side of the gripper. Zip ties. Use a second sponge or a couple paint brushes on the other side of the grabber jaw. The second side mainly just pushes the weed against the sponge. Invent a rig. Get pictures and show us the results.
That's been my problem every time I've tried this. Dripping is just too risky. Especially with undiluted gly.I wouldn't trust that setup with gly.
I tried the rope wand. I first tried the drill a hole and pull the rope through. That was a drippy severe failure!cool, i like the pvc dauber. I’ll make one of those. Hopefully can control Flow so there is no drops leaking off the sponge.
