Hey guys, just got a 1 year old new holland sprayer, bought it from a JD salesman that couldn't tell me anything about it, sprayed a bunch of glyphosate so far but haven't figured out the right way to manually flush or prime the booms while stationary, only getting flow when I move. I'm sure this should be easy but can anyone give me a few tips? Thanks

go to tool box. select machine tab then there is a tab in the bottom right for zero speed. turn it off then you can run your booms while standing still. make sure you turn it back on when your done

No idea mate doesn't really sound right. I'm mainly familiar with jd2630 & raven. I figured it would probably be a raven. Might be a good idea to get a new holland bloke out to run you over it with you even if you do have to pay them. Might save you a few headaches.

I turned the boundary control and overlap controls off and had it manual but no dice and zero speed shut off was off. I talked to New Holland and they have been fairly helpful for anything mechanical but as to actually running it they seem fairly lost. Otherwise so far it seems like a really nice unit, as for balance that seems quite good but the right rear tire is the one that gets you stuck, wouldn't think the hydraulic reservoir and what not would make that corner that much worse but can have 3 tires on solid ground and that one punches through and that's where she waits on the tractor. Also having issues with booms wanting to fold back in a turn or even going down the field, like leaky cylinders or accumulators maybe?

If the booms fold back hydraulically the breakaway pressure is set to low. There is an adjustment on the valve body on the center boom section.

The right rear tire getting you stuck is wrong. The machine has two hydrostat systems working opposite corner tires. That machine should be near impossible to get stuck with 2 tires in the mud, let alone just 1. It could be the pressure relief on the LR/RF pump is set low.

You will have a boom override that you can use.Set the time up to give you enough.We took the end caps off all sections and but ball valves on to do clean outs quicker.It will take 22 ga to charge the 120 ft boom .

Is there actually no way to set steady pressure in these? New holland said pump only builds pressure when your moving, makes for pressures from 20-50 depending on speed and inconsistent starts on the nozzles. I've never had one like that so seems odd and isn't doing a good job if that's actually how it has to be. Thanks for all previous info it was all helpful.
