    Water

    I have seven acres and my wife likes to plant flowers and shrubs all over it. My problem is watering them. Do they make a water tank with a long hose and a pump without the boom? I guess what I am looking for is a tank, hose, and nozzle on wheels. Any ideas?

    Do you have a trailer? If so, look at the IBC 275 gallon totes, easy to plumb, and depending on where you're located, $60 to $100 cheep for 275 gallon.

    When I get to the point of needing one that's the direction I'll head. I have lots of landscaping stuff coming up soon, and to me this looks like it would beat a hose.

    Here is a 31-gallon model without a boom from Northern Tool. Something like this should work quite well. By adjusting the tip on the wand (or removing it) you should be able to get a sufficient stream for watering. The plus side is you still have a nice tow behind sprayer for other duties.

    You just need to decide if 31-gallons is enough or do you need bigger / smaller... understanding that you will be towing it with a X580 lawn tractor.

    I was going to recommend something like that as well but he only lists a X580 in his signature. Even only half full the 275 gallon tote is over 1100 pounds.

    Will not argue with your points, other than one doesn't need to fill it full!

    You just need to decide if 31-gallons is enough or do you need bigger / smaller... understanding that you will be towing it with a X580 lawn tractor.
    Just be aware that those types of pull-behind sprayers don't put out a lot of volume, regardless of what type of tip you use. This one linked says 2.2 gallons per minute 'open flow', which I assume is the max. If you're trying to pull water around to plantings you probably want something faster than that.

    The 275 gallon totes seem like a great solution for cheap bulk water moving. I've thought about getting one (a local place has them for about $80) but I just don't have a need at present. For the OP, even a plain 55 gallon barrel mounted in a small utility trailer will gravity feed fast enough to be useful for plant watering with the right size spigot.

    My wife is also into planting on our 5.6 acres. My real problem with that is having to mow and edge around all the shrubs and trees. And, that's all year round since I overseed with winter rye. At least the watering is just 3 seasons.

    I started with a 25 gallon tank I carried around on the pallet forks and watered with gravity. That did not last long as gravity feed took way too long. And with 25 gallons I had to refill at least four times in order to get water to everything. Next came a 12 volt pump added to the unit. That shortened the emptying time but the refills were the same. Then came a larger tank holding 40 gallons, and then both the 40 and 25 gallon tanks together, which pretty much maxed out the front end loader.

    After close to two years of that, I finally had 4 freezeless yard hydrants added near the middles of the 4 sides of the property. Since the spousal plantings are along outside perimeters of the pasture fences and in the aisles in between, or around the barn and house near the center of the rectangle, now I have piped in water sources close enough to use hoses for 95 percent of the plant watering. The hydrants, pipes, trenching and installation labor, plus 8 sprinklers and controller to cover a riding arena next to the barn and labor were about $2,200.

    For me, money well spent.

    Sorry, guys, left out an important part. I have a 2038R coming in a few weeks. I do not have a traitor to put it on, probably would like to find a combo deal. This summer I would put roughly 40 or 50 gallons in several containers in my little model 80 wagon and distribute it by 5 gallon bucket. Not fun. Keep the ideas coming.

    I collect rain water from my barn into 2 old fertilizer tanks, 230 gallons total. I run a hose to the gardens. Gravity feed was too slow. Tanks are about 5 feet in the air. I added a broken jet pump I repaired. Good flow now. I'm thinking about burying black plastic pipe out there now.

    You could put an IBC tote on a small trailer. Northern tool and HF both sell smaller ones pretty cheap or find someone with a snowmobile trailer with a bad bed. Just use boards to support the tote.

    I have four sixty gallon rain barrels I collect water in. I then use a small drill pump to pump the water out into a 35 gallon tank strapped to a hitch carrier on the back of my 1025r. I just gravity feed the water out.
