wilger end flush valve

Has anybody used these boom flush valves? How good do they work? Or is there something better?

WilgerIndustries can you tell me if these would work on a JD with 1" poly booms?

I have had them on for several years. I rarley use them because they are almost impossible to turn after the first year. I wish I had regular ball valves on that are usuable and will still work afte being in the dust for a while.

I have them. Very hard to turn, I agree with the ball valves being better.

I think Wilgar should redesign a better valve and offer a recall. They were not cheap and the functionality has been terrible. Defiatley go with good ball valves if you can. Wilgar at the shows has said to spray them with silicone. That is not a solution. I do not have the time or desire to be monkeying around on a regular basis with a spray boom coated in chemical trying to get 10 valves to turn using silicone spray.

I use them on the sprayer fairly regular so I can still turn them but yes they are a b**** to turn some days but they are better than a cap to unscrew

There junk. I could not get them to seal on my 1in SS pipe.
Tried pipe dope. Tried teflon tape. Nothing worked. Its like the threads
bottomed out before tighting.
Got tired of them consently dipping while spraying and all over the
sprayer while in the cradle.
Took them off. and put my plugs back on.

I get along "OK" with mine. Standard o-rings in adapters(if required) won't work! Had to use green viton o-rings. Use them each time I change chemicals. Air in booms afterwards is an issue.
If ball valves can be used, would be much handier.
Need Hypro and Wilger to get together and combine their ideas!!

Express end caps are the answer IMO. no monkeying around with ball valves AND they bleed the air out. Only way to go IMO.
