You Tube Nitro WeedIt and you should find it.

We removed this system from an older home made 26m self propelled unit and fitted it to the Nitro for a better more comfortable ride. Purchased hardware and additional sensors and solenoids through Total Precision.

(I can't post links yet)
Just watched it , looks much better set up than the spray shop set up on ours

I don't think the technology is good enough yet and purely from a contractors viewpoint trying to get ppl to pay for the technology would be difficult.

Talwood lad what sensitivity are you running your rig at and how small are the weeds you are consistently hit at that setting. Been told by after uses they are hitting fifty cent size on number 2.

That is pretty much what we run at , tried one paddock at #1 and it almost seemed to be going off too much , we get pretty small potato weed on #2 that would generally be between 20c and 50c size

If you can get 50 cent size weeds then the technology must work. Every summer fallow is at least 3 blanket sprays plus sowing knockdown, that's if there's no problem weeds. But there never is. Then your double knocking then maybe giving up on the odd paddock and ploughing, Kelly chaining or the latest useless fad speed tillers.
