If you need to control weeds over a large area on a regular basis, you might consider whether a dedicated, trailed sprayer would be more efficient than an on-board sprayer. The two do the same basic task, but the on-board sprayer needs to be mounted on a vehicle (designed for quads but could be fastened into a 4x4, pickup or tractor). The trailed unit can be towed by any suitable vehicle and has an excellent basic specification that is able to handle most sizes of spraying jobs. It will give you an excellent work-rate if you have a lot of ground to cover.
All horse owners must be aware of the need to control weeds. Ideally, you should identify all the plants that occur in your paddocks and tackle the undesirables, but make the most of the ones that enhance the grazing and palatability for your horse. As well as poisonous plants there are those that are just a nuisance. Spraying is the accepted method for weed control in many instances.
You should follow the chemical manufacturer’s guidelines for where and when to spray, paying particular attention to the amount of time after spraying that you need to leave the paddock clear. Whether you’re spraying over a wide area with a boom, or spot-treating weeds with a hand-lance, a dedicated trailed sprayer tackles the job with maximum convenience and speed.
Paddocks or any grassed area.
The chemical is mixed in the tank. You have the option of using a boom setup (a number of nozzles at up to 3.5 metre boom widths) or a hand lance which can be attached to a hose reel for ‘roving’ work on foot (for example, when working in restricted places that will not accommodate the vehicle). The integral electric pump (12v) provides the power for the unit and remote controls allow the spraying to be stopped and started from the driving seat.
