    Got a new piece of equipment to drag around.

    After wearing myself out with a 2 gallon pump sprayer, I broke down and got a 20 gallon Fimco to drag behind my old 355D. Man this will make life much easier!










    Now I can get rid of some of this!!

    I think you are going to have fun with your new tool. I don't want to change your thread, but curious what everyone likes to use for general weed control (at an affordable cost). We have both lawn and a two acre field. I use 24-d on the field, but would love any thoughts.

    I just put my new Fimco 40gal 3PT boom sprayer to use this morning for the first time. All went well and my usage calculations were correct for my acreage.

    Can I get a picture? I'm ready to pull the trigger on the same thing. Thanks.

    I use 2 4-d on my lawn.I used to use the Amnie 400 at TS at 3oz to the gal.Found 3 way select herbicide at Site one (formerly John Deere landscapes) but only 1.5 oz per gal.
    Anything that is small leaf like clover use a surfactant.It brakes the surface tension and coates the leaf for a better kill. Johnson's baby shampoo is a cheap surfactant low foam. 1oz per gal. will do.

    Thank you! I bought the 355D new in July of 2000, and it's been a good one. I just replaced all idler pulleys on the tractor and deck, put new bushings in the pivot shafts, replaced the pivot shaft on the deck, and put a new seat on it this last month. It just hit 600 hours this evening while using the sprayer. Also being I hated having the loose wiring for the sprayer I did a little redneck engineering before I used it. What I ended up doing was simply unplug the headlight switch, cut the positive wire on the sprayer harness and added 2 terminals so it would plug onto the headlight switch. I then ran the wire under the floorpan, over the fuel tank, and at that point it had a connection so you could just unplug it. The factory switch I just leave on, and when I want to spray I just pull the headlight switch, and when I want to shut it off, I turn the headlight switch off. Here is some pics.

    I will shoot a picture or two tomorrow of my 40gal setup.

    I just applied Powerhorse http://www.walkersupplyinc.com/ESW/F...ower_label.pdf I just pulled this link off the internet for the specs, but my local supplier sold a 2 1/2 gallon jug for $191.

    I used about 30 gallons of water to 3/4 gallon of herbicide running about 4 mph at 30psi 10 foot wide spray pattern for 2.5 acres. I put myself just a little above 1/2 for maximum application per acre per year so that I can re-apply this fall. Also used marking dye to help make sure I just had a little overlap as I ran the yard.

    I had some good help from my grounds guys at the school golf course to make sure I had my numbers straight and did waste product and didn't overkill and be responsible in my application. Amazing how much a homeowner can get away with it you wanted to with herbicides and things compared to the strict regulations the golf course has to follow and document.

    I know for something pushing close to 20 years old (or older) that tractor looks brand new. When did they stop making 355D? It was a short model run wasn't it because I rarely see them for sale?
