About a year ago I searched the forums with no results and then posted asking if anyone had ever mounted a NorthStar broadcast sprayer on their B-series tractor. There was no response so I figured it hadn't been done before. I proceeded to build one using a sleeve hitch as part of the platform. Hopefully the attached photos will adequately explain the concept. Used the sprayer for the first time this past weekend. Unit worked very well and was stable on the slopes.

I got me a winter project. Thanks everyone. So much better than towing one around too. Just a quick question. If you don't finish all of the mixture up of Glysphate / roundup is it OK just to leave it in the sprayer

I have trouble with my backpack sprayer when I leave it in, the spray nozzzle handle gums up and has to be torn apart and washed out. I wouldn't leave it in, you need to wash out the spray handle.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
