I have a JD x584. I was thinking about getting the mounted sprayer . Which one do I get? Lp22861 or 22862? I currently own the 14 bushel bagger system ,but don’t have the click and mount system. Am I better of buy that kit and getting 22862 ? Does the 22862 version come with the normal mounting bars too? So that I don’t have to get the kit right away?
thanks
Steve

The LP22862 sprayer uses the Click-n-Go mounting system which is used on the X700 series tractors and OLDER X400/500. Keep in mind that the older X4xx and X5xx were the same as today's X700.

What you have is a X584. You need the LP22861 sprayer that fits the current X300/X500 series tractors.

The LP22862 sprayer uses the Click-n-Go mounting system on the x700 series as well.
I just used my sprayer for the first time this morning. It worked nicely.

I guess I’m still confused then. Should I consider the click and go system? I have the bagger system . Would this make it easier to swap? Instead of taking metal brackets on and off.

I think we're all confused. :) The Click-n-Go system is not for the X300/X500. It is only for the X700-series machines.

For those with a X700, you must first purchase the Click-n-Go option (BM20714). Then if you buy the correct mounted sprayer it attaches to these brackets.

For X300/500 tractors, the mounting system is completely different. All the required hardware comes with the sprayer for the X300/500. You do not need to unbolt anything to remove bracket "H". It is held in place with two hairpins "I".

Now, if you are saying you have somehow adapted a Click-N-Go system to your X580, then I am at a loss. :)

You have a X700-series machine. The OP has a X584... apples and oranges. :)

Don’t see how bracket “H” is going to install on mine with the all wheel turn ( bolts ) in the way
That bracket does not mount flush to the rear panel on the tractor, it is spaced out a bit. The installation instructions mentions 4WS tractors. Before purchasing I would verify the X584 is on the list but it looks like they've taken 4WS models into account.

Thanks for all your help. I’ll call my local dealer tomorrow.

Do you believe I can leave the bracket on permanently without interfering the 14 bushel bagging system?

Without seeing more details of exactly how your bagging system attaches, it is impossible to say.

I've been through this mixer/spreader/sprayer thing over the past few years. I have been through the JD electric spreader (nice), JD PTO driven spreaders, pull behind, and a few different sprayers. Last week I ordered the sprayer and spreader that will resolve all of my issues with either a sprayer or spreader.

Top of the list;
Chapin mixes on exit 15 or 25 gallon sprayer.
No mixing, no waste, different solutions can be setup in a couple of minutes, no chemical waste, little exposure to chemical, made in USA.

Chapin 97761 Mixes On Exit 25-Gallon Tow Behind Sprayer

For seed;
Chapin 8620B 150-Pound Tow Behind Spreader
Graduated and exact flow control and the flow stops when you stop. NO levers or cables to push/pull or break. No turning around in the seat, decent capacity for small acreage, well built, and built in the USA.


Both of these fit the OPS needs without additional hardware needed for his tractor.

Interesting. The manual gives a lot of assembly information but doesn't say much about actually using it. If it starts and stops when the tractor starts and stops, how do you travel from one area to the next without dispensing material? Example, I was to fill it up in the garage and drive out to the back yard to spread. I wouldn't want to be spreading material the whole way out to the back yard.

Interesting. I’ll have to look into this. Not big on the idea of tow behind. I like the idea of mounting for maneuverability purposes .
Thanks for sharing!

After using a towable sprayer and spreader for years, I have to say the newer Rear Mounted Sprayer and Spreaders are light years easier to use. On the separate tanks for mixing, Imho I don't see the need, at least for me. For my one acre lot, I know exactly how many OZ to a tank I need for a proper mix, so it's pretty easy. I suppose for larger areas this could be helpful in some cases?

Mounted sprayer yes but I'm still not sold on the mounted spreader. They typically shoot way too much material up into the back of the tractor. I don't have that problem with the tow-behind spreader.

Interesting the mix on exit sprayer. Never heard of such a thing.

I see a lot of threads of sprayers and little thought put into calibration, keeping pesticide on target and proper timing of applications. Half the battle is knowing what to use and when. I see a lot of really bad information given out. Remember, the label is the law. FIFRA.

Hope it works out for you.

Jgayman,
They actually cover that in the manual. You set the output to zero (0), and travel to wherever you want without spreading.
