The Z-Spray Mini Max
The 2009 Z-Spray Mini Max from L.T. Rich is a junior version of the Z-Max. It is powered by a 9 hp Briggs Vanguard engine and has a 35.5-inch width, making it accessible to gated properties. The split, 7-gallon spray tanks allow for multiple liquid products and can run independent of each other, with agitation on both tanks. The unit features a 3 GPM spray pump and three-section boom with 25-inch coil hose, as well as a hydraulic hopper system, 150-pound fertilizer capacity and zero-turn pump wheel motor transmission. The top ground speed is 8 mph and it has a GPS speedometer.
The Z-Spray Mini Max can be carried on a carrier rack instead of a trailer.
The WS-485 Grounds Wheelie II is the newest spreader in Wheel Spray Corporation’s product line and features a motorless system for quiet, low profile chemical applications. The WS-485 delivers chemicals by the speed at which the sprayer is pushed, therefore, the faster it is pushed, the faster it pumps.
The unit applies liquid fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides and growth regulators. The twin wheel pumps spray a fan of solution 6 feet wide at the rate of 1 gallon per 1,000 square feet. The shut-off controls, located on the handle grips, allow the operator to use the two nozzles independently.
