Power Spray Equipment | Pest Control Sprayers | Weed Control Sprayers
Owners of power spray equipment have plenty of problems to deal with. As the reader(s?) of my blog know, I feel strongly that it is cheaper to prevent pest control sprayer problems than to fix them. When my kids were young and would spill something, I would ask them if they knew the best way to clean up a mess?" After a few times being asked this question, they learned the answer: The best way to clean up a mess is to not make it in the first place".
This is really true in business and I was reminded of this during a recent business trip. While boarding a Southwest Airlines a saw this locked cabinet (photo).
The combination lock was secured to the cabinet with a thin cable to prevent the lock from being lost or misplaced. What a great idea. Southwest probably lost a few dozen locks before they thought of securing them.
When it comes to your weed control sprayers or other equipment, what can you do to prevent problems?
Here is a photo of a weed sprayer we built a while back. There is a boomless spray head that gets inserted into the post shown. We used a locking pin to secure the spray head. We used a small chain to prevent the loss of the locking pin.
Do an inspection of your vehicle and spray equipment. What are some of the problems that a little brain power and elbow grease can avoid? A few minutes spent on this activity can prevent headaches, dowtime and unnecessary expenses.
