    Sprayer for my Zero Turn

    I spent the day fabricating this contraption to support a 40 gallon Fimco Sprayer. This unit is made to go on a tractor three point hitch but I wanted to use it with my zero turn mower. The booms have about a 12 foot spray width. This should make putting out fungicides and insecticides go much faster. I think it came out quite nice.

    It does look nice,, BUT,,,
    do you really want to drive into a mist of fungicide spray??

    Is there any way to mount the sprayer on the back of the ZT ??

    Not to mention an extra 400 pounds of weight on the front end if the sprayer is full.

    Great idea! But I would’ve went with a pull behind sprayer. I have a mounted 25 gallon sprayer on my X590, and a pull behind for my Z950R.

    I hate to talk down upon someone's creative work. But seriously??? Are you actually seeing what you've built? You just set yourself up drive directly into a constant cloud of chemicals. I have that same sprayer. What you've made is incredibly dangerous and unhealthy. I would never ever use such a thing. This is why sprayers are always behind the operator.

    Anyway to relocate the sprayer boom behind the ZT.

    You did great work on the front mount, probably is a reasonable way to mount the spray boom on back,
    you'll just need a little extra hose which should be no problem.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Not sure if they sell it separately but I have the DFS Collection System for my Z950R. I also have that same sprayer. It would be pretty easy to modify that sprayer to accept a connection to that mounting bracket. I had never thought of that and right now run the sprayer on the 3pt on my X585. The problem with it on the X585 is that it has a limited 3pt meaning it can't lift it very high. I was considering modifying the sprayer to shift it higher but maybe I will modify it to the rear.

    Several people mentioned changing it to the rear of the machine. I agree that it would be far better to have it in the back as pointed out to not drive though the chemical spray. That or wear a tyvec suit and respirator. However the issue with mounting it to the rear is the excessive weight. Part of the kit for the DFS collection system is a front weight bracket and 6 x 42# suitcase weights to go on the front of the machine. When I run the collection system you have to add that ballast to the front. I normally keep those weights on my heavy hitch on the X585 as I don't use the collection system that much. In the fall when I do run it, I have put the hopper on and went back up to the shop where the X585 is and even the empty hopper makes it really easy to wheelie the Z950R. While one could rig up something to mount it to the back of the machine and take off the rear weights/bumper, you would probably want to add some ballast to the front if one did that.
