    HOLY COW!!!!!!!!

    That thing is rode hard and put away wet, on top of bieng a museum piece!

    Finding parts would be impossible, even if the old Kaiser motor might still be running for now.
    The pump and regulator would be the biggest pain to maintain as it's an old piston model.
    Then the manifold itself.

    It's cheap, but there's a reason for that. LOL!!

    Spray wise, the blast sprayers wont get much more than 20' without directed air flow like a volutte.

    Take a look at these. A1 Mist Sprayers: Mist Blower Orchard, Grove, Tree & Windbreak Spraying
    My BIL bought one two years ago, and it's been a solid unit so far. Height isn't a problem because of the adjustable Volute angle.
    They will manufacture to spec if one of thier stock models isn't to your needs. Not sure they have a trailer model.

    Best part is all of the components are off the shelf, so if something breaks replacement parts can be sourced from just about any good industrial supply outfit like Motion industries.

    I will be going past the tractor dealer to the south, in the morning. I'll stop in and check on the used unit he has out front and get a price.
    Been busy and havn't gotten out for the last 3 days. Apologies.

    What price range are you looking to stay under?

    That would narrow things down in a hurry.

    Thanks yeah I figured it was no good. Really want a pull type would be a nightmare refilling those 3pt types.

    No dice at the McCormick/ LS dealer. The unit he had out front was new Turbo Mist 350 series, and it lasted all of 6 days before it was snapped up.

    Heads up on a PM.

    Went and talked to a local grower with a fairly large collection of Orchards this morning.

    He's Got 2 you would be interested in.

    A 350 gallon Berthoud PTO driven he keeps as a back up. It's solid and working, but older, with the typical Berthoud 3 piston pump. It would be turn key but at the limits of your T75, and as a blast sprayer, might not get the coverage on your taller trees.
    Price is right...real right. If you don't snag it, it wont be there for long.

    The Monster.
    500 Gallon Stainless steel tank Jon Bean, with a DETROIT Diesel power plant, on double wide diamond tread flotation tires and rims.
    It's in working condition(Was working fine when parked), and comes with a spare pump off it's old sister unit.

    It's been sitting for a while though. Since the middle 80's everybody has gone to smaller Trees in greater numbers, and the older monsters that were needed to get 25' into a canopy and cover the spacing became too big to haul around and were parked when all the older Orchards were rotated out. So it's been sitting for half a dozen years or so.

    For a 20+ year old sprayer, it's solid, and has been stored indoors, but needs some minor TLC after sitting. There is plenty of life left in the old girl.
    It will definately get your coverage, and Jon Bean parts are readily available as they have not changed a whole lot. Detroit is Detroit...parts will be common even in Mexico.

    Best part is, it was hauled around the orchards with an old 40hp Deere for years, and wont overwhelm your T75.



    Not the unit in question but a newer version.

    If you still need one, I have a nice airblast sprayer that I could part with. Pull type, 500gal ss tank, Ford industrial gas engine. We are no longer in the orchard business and could sell it.
