We have been using this sprayer for several years and the boom was mounted stationary with the mounts coming off of the spray tank frame resting on the tailgate. So the tips were up about the top of that tailgate. I have been wanting to fix it where I could easily adjust it and get it lower when needed. It's also a little farther behind the machine now. Now I have to fix a receiver mount stand for a place to store the boom when not in use.
