Fed up with messing about with 100l sprayer on quad, temperamental pump, sprayer on quad when you need it for something else etc.
I have a 400l ex Hardi tank and frame and am going to build a trailed sprayer mainly for lance and small boom work doing hedge bottoms, lanes, yards etc. It will have a 6m boom and a couple of hose reel lances pumped by a 12v pump run off a large 12v battery so it is all independent and can be hooked on and off quite easily. Big question is what is the best 12v pump to put on and secondly what control set? Any other ideas to include much appreciated.

Don't have a real answer but a basic red flat fan nozzle at 2bar sprays 200l/ha and each nozzle moves 1.3 odd litres per minute. So at 50cm nozzle spacing you have 12 nozzles needing 15l/min.

its all in the design , needs a flow regulator /divider so theres application volume adjustment and that the pump is working all time for consistency of pressure, less start up stress....... not stop start on the pressure build up switch, common or garden atv sprayers arent high enough spec but they are cheap enough to buy i guess.
If youre building one it will be straight forward to plumb it in..it snot rocket science.

Yes I agree so thats why Im starting with pump, have looked at control sets and had something like this in mind.
Allman Control unit 194-151 (simperstradecounter.co.uk)
But would have liked one with 5 sections for the different bits and bobs.

ah yes, i see setion control is another matter and thats including a pressure gauge as well...

Is pressure control not included in the one I posted? Or is it better to have it seperate?
