We hope to... the big thing was, 1) I spent 312 engine hours in the 1155 and sprayer this year... that was a LOT of spraying time.

2. 2WD tractors, sloughs, and hills don't work that well together...

3. We had a 9700 custom bill to get some sprayed for fungicides... wanted to spray a half for berthas and couldn't get a custom sprayer in in time so probably figure we lost 5bu/ac on that...

Bought this thing for less than the custom bill/yr for 5 yrs... plus the amount of time and fuel saved.

Also wouldn't mind doing some custom acres to help pay for it, which isn't hard with the extended family ;)


If anyone has any tips on these units, let's hear em... sprayed post harvest but feel there's a lot to learn yet to get the maximum out of these things.


The little spray air we had was awesome... never a breakdown, just kept on going, but was getting too small. It's at tomorrow's Ritchie sale actually...

Nice unit and I'll bet you'll use it a lot and like it but does it come with an elevator to get to the cab and oxygen for that high altitude in the cab?

mainsilver, it's like riding on air.... I accidentally ran over some ruts at 14mph and couldn't even feel them...


w-mFarms, if you run a SprayAir with the fan you suck a lot of fuel... 180 liters of diesel (40 gallons) would spray 300 acres....
