Just trying to get an idea of what the average hours and acres a year everyone is doing? Also are you commercial or private applicator.
Care to share your secret?Application hours average since 2007 only 185 application hours , nearly double that in engine although the gap is narrowing since I figured out how to fill engine off. Jd 4920
I think there are actually two secrets, first I learnt was to turn on the solution pump in the cab and turn off the engine, that seems to leave the big tap open at the bottom of the tank.Care to share your secret?
That would explain your handle.1000 eng. Hrs. Private& commercial
You might have to explain what you mean, isn't it just another shutdown? I would like to fit a turbo timer to allow me to idle the engine a bit more. I now only use the second method where I just dump the air. That can be done while the engine is running as the replenishment is not fast enough to close the valve and then once I have it filling I go back upstairs to turn off the engine.How do you handle your gps and power surges when you start your sprayer when you are turning it off and on for the fill?
I know exactly what your talking about, I can't count the amount of times cycling power has caused me monitor issues. If i was going to shut off the engine every fill I would run some sort of a switch to keep the monitor on at all times. I have thought about shutting down to save engine hours but figured that speeding up my fill times would just be a better idea.How do you handle your gps and power surges when you start your sprayer when you are turning it off and on for the fill?
