STO here who is spraying and applying in season 28% with a mounted sprayer and mounted side dress bar. We still use a chart and pressure gauge to keep our rates where we want them, but to stay on we have to tweak rpm frequently while re-checking the chart and starting out the back at the gauge while trying to stay off of the rows... I know there is a better way.
I am thinking about getting a rate controller of some sort and know very little about what is out there. I dont need anything fancy... just something that will auto adjust to keep my rate consistent on the fly. What do guys like?
We have a gen 1 20/20 monitor for planting, but I assume we would need to upgrade to use precision products.
Thanks in advance for your input!
I just got into the rate controller world this year with micro trak spraymate 2 systems on two different sprayers.
So far, I really like them. Bought new through shoup and not all that expensive. Detailed instructions and great service over the phone directly with micro trak to help with set up etc.
