    Sprayer Rig for 425

    Finally! I have been planning this project for
    several years. No more pumping and no more
    sore back! You can call me "The Weed Whisperer."

    Do explain. I see a rear weight bracket, c clamp and ratchet straps maybe? I think I have the same sprayer and would love to find a way to cheaply tie it to the back of the tractor. For now I just strap it down in my 80 cart.

    Nice job. When I had my 425 I put a trailer receiver on it and used one of those cheap harbor freight cargo carriers that go in the hitch. Just put the sprayer on it and hold in place with bungies. I bought one of those battery charger extension cables with 2-pin connector, like 10 ft long. Connected it to the battery and tied it to the frame coming out the back. Worked great. Just watch your hose and don't let it get caught up in the tires.

    You are correct K91. Two heavy duty 10x12" shelf brackets clamped to the weight bracket with a couple of
    1x2s joining them crossways. And, some rubber tarp
    straps. Next project is to fabricate a mount using the
    shelf brackets that just hangs on the weight bracket for
    easy on and off. And, then cobble up a 4 or 5 ft. boom
    with a couple of nozzles for spraying large areas.

    That is a rare "cement flower basket" tree that belongs to
    my wife. What you see is part of a bail type handle and supports on both sides. It stands 5 ft tall and weighs about 350 pounds!

    Once I get the permanent mount made I intend to leave it on the tractor in the summer.

    On/Off Switch for pull behind weed'r

    I know this is an old thread but Nice idea. Always wondered why JD never installed an aux switch. Since my sprayer is a pull behind with a Femco pump I spliced into the rear lights with a plug. It really makes spraying a lot easier when all you have to do is turn the lights on/off to control the pump.

    New ones, at least the x7 series have a switch controlled aux that I use for my pump.
