    25 Gallon Click-N-Go Sprayer HELP!

    Hi Guys,

    I need some help. I got the Deere 25 G Click-N-Go Sprayer. I never used one before as I used to spot spray and this year ive decided to blanket spray and hit everything.

    Is there any particular advice with using this sprayer?
    I am using a product called Quincept, can anyone work out how much I need to add to water and spray from this sprayer?
    I have just under a half acre to spray.

    The next week should be sunshine so I was going to spray tomorrow as its been raining here all week until today.

    Thanks in advance.

    I am trying to do the math on Quincept but not screw it up either.

    Quincept says use 128 Fl. Oz per 1 Acre.
    I have to do a 0.35 Acre Lot only so I calculated 45 Fl Oz of Quincept needed for weed kill.

    Then, on pg 15 of the Sprayer handbook it says the spray GPH released is fixed, and amount released determined by speed. at 4MPH the amount per nozzle sprayed would be 27.2 G per Acre, so again for a 0.35 Acre I calculated 9.5 G Spray released per Nozzle at 4mph. How to determine speed will be pretty difficult, I took that speed as its half way from highest speed of 8mph.

    Does anyone use this sprayer that could give me just a better idea?

    I’ve a question.

    Is the ground speed – 4MPH or 4km/h?

    4 MPH seems fast if you desire thorough wetting of the weeds. Before starting, please confirm 4MPH is the recommended ground speed.

    Otherwise, you’ve correctly calculated the amount of Quincept product to use for .35 acre.

    Hi there

    Thanks for your reply. So the speed can be 2-6mph, and the rate differs. Its MPH not KPH!

    2 MPH = 54.5 Gallons Per Acre Per Nozzle Rate
    3 MPH = 36.3
    4 MPH = 27.2

    I just dont know how I can accurately estimate the speeds!

    you can use gps on your cell phone to give you real time speed.

    Hi!
    This is what I was looking for earlier in the app store but I didnt think there were any accurate for low speeds.
    Can you recommend any low speed accurate speed app?

    Most were 0-200 but in 20 MPH increments....so not very accurate in the 0-5MPH range

    I have not looked for gps apps. But, gps doesn't care how fast or slow. Accuracy is pretty much the same. So, it sounds like you just need an app with enough resolution. Maybe look for hiking or orienteering gps apps, or walk nav apps. Or a stand alone GPS navigator like hunters might use.

    Here's what is says in the 25 gallon sprayer owner's manual:

    Checking Machine Ground Speed
    1. Check ground speed in an open area.
    2. Measure a test area that is 30.5 m (100 ft) in length.
    3. Operate the machine at wide open throttle. Operate machine at a low
    speed and drive the machine the test distance. Record the time needed to
    travel that distance.
    4. Make three passes, recording the time for each pass. The average time
    should be 23 to 27 seconds to achieve the recommended operating speed
    range:
    • The recommended operating speed is 4.0 km/h (2.5 mph). At this
    speed, the average time traveling the test distance should be 27
    seconds.
    5. Adjust accordingly to achieve recommended speed range.

    25 Gallon Sprayer Application:
    The 25 Gallon Sprayer operates at a fixed pressure of 689 kPa (100 psi).
    This yields 20 minutes of spraying time using the spray boom or 42
    minutes of spraying time using the handgun. When operating the spray
    boom, plan on driving about 4.0 km/h (2.5 mph) or 67 m/min. (220 fpm).
    That provides 3065 m2 (33,000 sq ft) of spray coverage per tank. Plan on
    about 10 percent overlap, so put enough chemical in the tank for 2787 m2
    (30,000 sq ft) of spray coverage.

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    My broad leaf spray which I use is mixed at a rate of 1.5 ounces per gallon of water. Some products, excess density of the chemical doesn't help the effectiveness of the spray and is only a waste. Also, your ground speed needs to be at a pace which isn't bouncing the sprayer and you and the tractor going across your lawn or you will likely have inconsistent application.

    Funny thing is in all of the spraying i have done for years, I never involved the speed in the product mixture calculation. I simply mix enough product to cover the area based upon prior results. It's better to have to apply another spray in a few weeks than to either waste product on too heavy of an application or from going too fast and not getting the good penetration on the weeds. Getting the weeds leafs wet is what kills them from my experience.

    Also, if you have a paved driveway, you can put JUST water in your sprayer and see how wide of a pattern you get and how much water say 5 gallons, provides in coverage as far as distance x width for total square feet. I suggest you do this so you know where to overlap, etc. and make sure to plan with the wind, etc.

    Practice with water on the pavement to get feel for the flow. As far as the MPH, if anything, use your phone to determine your average speed for driving at a decent speed and then go from there.

    Yes, I struggled with ground speed for spraying purposes, too. Eventually, I mounted a CatEye to my tractor, which works very well. I mounted the wire type, not wireless.

    However, you need to spray, now.

    Is your yard fairly level? I would guess that our X758’s go between 3 - 4 MPH at engine idle with the forward pedal fully depressed.

    I’d determine what that speed is. Do you have an open, level space where you can measure the distance your X758 travels in 15 or 30 seconds (for example) with the engine at idle and the forward pedal full depressed? Covert the time and the associated distance traveled to MPH.

    If my guess that the tractor ground speed is in the vicinity of 4MPH, calculate the amount of water needed for the actual speed you'll be traveling. You’ll need more water if the speed is slower than 4MPH and less water if the speed is faster than 4MPH, obviously. No matter how much water you use, the amount of Quincept used per acre remains the same.
