Any body have any experience with these sprayers? Looking at a 2004 model. Will go on a 6630 and a 6115r only doing about 500 acres of spraying a year.

Be careful, very careful. I ran one for 6-7 years. Was a good sprayer BUT look very carefully around the boom suspension point. Mine started cracking up and I had it welded twice. Cousin also had one of these and had similar problems. Was a good sprayer to buy new but knowing what I do I would not entertain a second hand one.
