    I was using a 40 gallon FIMCO tank in the back of a Ranger XP, with a handheld wand. Just not very effective, at all, in a pasture. It is great for spot treating or laying down some Bifen IT along the wooded edge of the yard, etc., as well as in our pine grove (row planted pulp pines, 8 feet between rows. The tractor aintagonna fit in there).

    I know it has been awhile since I have been back, but I do want to thank you guys for the feedback.

    I ended up with a 65 gallon sprayer with 20 foot boom spread. It works pretty well, but there was a bit of learning curve on how much pressure to set and how high to keep the nozzles.

    I run 40 psi, and set the cruise (I do like my yuppy tractor) at 7 mph. It take about 90 gallons to get one pasture done, so I have to refill.

    In fact, I'll be using it this weekend.

    I have a 60g 3pt sprayer but with 12V pump. Wish I had paid a little more for a PTO model. I have only 2.2gpm and that means very slow driving. I just wanted to get into this post as heads-up to other buyers. BTW, anyone in my situation upgrade their pump to PTO or a bigger 12V?

    Pesticide. Active ingredient is bifenthrin, 7.9%.

    Works great on everything. I spreay the pine grove to cut down on mosquitos. You do want to be careful with it, as it will kill honey bees also.

    It is very effective, on every sort of insect.
