After testing different pressures and speed I'm ready to spray driveway.
A mist comes in contact with the aluminum

Then drips off. Let you know in a week or two how it works.

According to my calculations, at 11 miles per hour you will achieve lift off.

Why that shield over the boom?

I've worked with a lot of sprayers from that size to field sprayers and I've never seen that before.

You don't need that boom so high. Old baler belts are most often used up here for shielding. Put about 10 inch strip ahead of the boom hanging down, and wrap around the ends toward the back. Keeping the wind from blowin your spray away is the goal.

While I agree your MOD will help with drift and overspray. I also have to ask why you have the boom so high. I assume its to allow clearance for some obstacle in your yard? I would think if the sprayer is for driveway use only, setting the boom 6-12 inches off the ground would accomplish the same thing.

I can adjust spray bar. After many adjustments, I used water and tested spray pattern on pole barn floor.
This height gave me the results I wanted.

I adjusted to get best spray pattern with least pressure and least fine mist.

If the nozzles are 20 inches apart 20 inches high is the proper setting for coverage and difrt per Teejet's pattern for an 80 degree nozzle.

Grizz, what kind of nozzles and how many are you using to get 10 feet wide? Looks like you are using the same pump that comes with it just like mine. Thanks.
