Broadcast Sprayer Selection Considerations
Know and understand your job and what type of sprayer will be used to get the job done.
- Will you be doing spot spraying or broadcast spraying?
Remember, spot spraying is for isolated areas and broadcasting is for covering more surfaces. This question will help you narrow down the many combinations of sprayers we carry that are ideal for your application.
Determine How Your Sprayer Will Be Transported.
- Will you be using an ATV, UTV, truck bed, or tractor?
Remember, broadcast sprayer applications are ideal to be used with ATVs, zero-turn mowers, UTVs, Tractors, and other commercial machinery. Once you establish the need for broadcast spraying and the style of transportation that will be used for the application, you will need to determine the size of area being sprayed.
Understand the sprayer’s performance applications and model differences.
- What is the size of the area being sprayed?
Small to Medium Areas (Under 3 Acres) w/ ATV – 15 or 25 Gallon ATV
Small to Medium Areas (Under 3 Acres) w/ Zero-Turn Mower – 12, 15, 24 & 25 Gallon Trailers
Medium to Large Areas (Around 3 Acres) w/ UTV – 36 Gallon Trailer / 50 Gallon UTV
Field and Larger Areas (3+ Acres) w/ Tractor – 40 or 6 Gallon 3-Point
If you are looking to go beyond 4 acres of spraying with commercial vehicle or tractor, we recommend looking at our available 150 or 200 Gallon broadcast sprayers.
Establishing the Ideal broadcast spray boom for your job
- Should you purchase a broadcast sprayer with a boom or boomless style kit?
Boom Style Kit – Used on even turf, pastures, and food plots that have no obstacles. Spray coverage between 5-23 feet
Boomless Style Kit – For long stretches of road ditches, fence lines, or has obstacles. Spray coverage between 16-52feet
Please Note: Master Manufacturing broadcast sprayers have a universal setup that gives you the flexibility to switch out boom or boomless kits, depending on the job at hand.
