    Saw one of these today, spraying weeds all along the roadside.

    Thought to myself, that could be easily converted for WFP. Not sure how much water they hold, but would be great for pulling right up to a house and cheap to run I'd imagine.

    What you think?

    By "class" do you mean noisy and inconvenient?

    That tank doesnt look like it would hold much. A trailer might be do-able, but that would reduce its appeal with regards to getting right in close to a house. Also, while it me be a realistic proposition to some of you guys with a small round (distance wise), not very appealing to me when most of my days involve travelling 50+ miles (and a few nearer 100), dont fancy driving far on that!.

    I think it would be a great idea, can they be driven on a provisional?? You would tow a small trailer with tank etc.

    It holds 95l, might do for a small round. And yea you wouldn't wanna travel far, but most of my stuff is within 10m of home.

    I'm not thinking of getting one, but was intrigued when I saw it so thought I would post it up.

    hi ya ;) i have seen quads used by the local council for weed killing they have a tank at rear and front, dont no how many ltres they hold, the driver holds a lance and zaps the weeds along the pavements, if it has a pump you are almost there for a WFP system, i will have a closer look next time i see one .......pete

    Here's a link to a company that sells atv sprayer rigs in the US, ones that fit on the back of the 4 wheeler and also have tow behind.
