I got tired of my backpack pumpup sprayer. I could spray about 8 gallons a day before getting wore out pumping.

So I made wooden mockups of a bumper mount and a sprayer mount for the bumper on the lawnmower. I welded it all up and did a test with it today. It works better than visioned. Now the weeds don't stand a chance. I bought a 26 gallon sprayer, with an demand pump, from northerntool.com. The tank and mount just hangs on the bumper. The wiring has alligator clips on the battery cables, so it can come off it a minute or two to mow. It's all 3/8 and 1/2 inch. The tank support plate is 1/4 inch.

Mike,
I can't help it. My Grandpa was an inventor and my Dad was a farmer. I have a mechanical mind and can't shut it off. Even watching movies, I focus on something in the scene and think...........how does that do that?
