Chapin 2 Nozzle Boom Wand

Post by Brodgers88 » Sun Jun 04, 2017 12:45 pm

Ware asked me to share a little information ​regarding the 2 nozzle boom wand I'm using with my backpack sprayer. It is the chapin 2 nozzle poly boom. I bought it pre assembled for around $30. First off I love it and wouldn't do any broadcast spray applications without it! It sprays about a 40" swath which makes quick work of my 4,700 sq ft of turf. I use 21 psi cf valves and teejet extended range nozzles. The chapin nozzle caps work fine with these teejet nozzles. For foliar applications I use the xr teejet extended range flat fan 110 02 nozzle and for soil applications the xr extended range air induction flat fan 110 03 nozzle. I probably differ from others here but I use around the minimum amount of recommended carrier for my applications. For pgr/iron I'm spraying about 0.5gal/1000 and for pre-m/insecticide around 0.75gal/1000. Everything seems to work well for me at these carrier rates and it also allows for spraying the entire turf area with one mix per app.Image

Great write-up! Thanks! :thumbup:

I understand and agree with your minimizing carrier logic. That's something stressed in the Rutgers Videos - with the right setup you can be very efficient with a backpack sprayer. Glad to hear it is working for you. I'm sure it really cuts down on the pumping too!

Where did you get the 2 nozzle wand or did you build it yourself?

No problem Ware! That Rutgers video is pretty awesome. I watched it several times a few years back when I was ready to get into broadcast spray applications.

Wardconnor, I bought mine from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Chapin-6-7780-2- ... B006Y85G9M also available at domyownpestcontrol http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/chapi ... 11499.html

I was spraying just the other day and wished there was a multiple tipped wand to help speed the process.

Thanks!

Hey sorry to wake a few week old thread but has anyone bought the boom wand for a Greenworks (Harbor Freight) 4gal. backpack sprayer? I called Chapin today and they said that their thread pattern is patented and HF is no help either. I haven't seen a universal boom wand yet. I'm just trying to cut down my spraying time with a bigger swath and you would think all these things would just screw on easily to any sprayer.

No worries. That's why it's here!

I think they all use a proprietary thread pitch. Just a thought, you could buy a Chapin sprayer, swap the wands, put a Chapin multi-nozzle boom on the backpack, then use the 2gal tank w/HF wand for spot spraying. They also sell replacement wand parts, so you could build your own, but it looks like it may be just as cheap to buy a second sprayer.

I have a solo backpack sprayer hand pump.

I bought the Chapin cf valves red from Amazon. I bought the chapin 2 nozzle boom. The boom did not come with any adapters. The cf valves did however come with 2 adapters I threw the package away but on the back of the cf package it stated that it was compatible with all models with supplied adapters.

I didn't need the adapters for the cf valves because I bought the Chapin boom that went with the Chapin cf valves. Because I didn't need them for boom to valve I used the adapter to adapt from my crappy flimsy solo wand to the Chapin boom. It worked great.

I might work for you but its a gamble. The cf valve package said it was universally compatible.

I really need to get a dfw_pilot wand setup but am holding out because of funds. What I really need is a Mightyquinn Franken sprayer because of my large lawn setup. There is no shortage of ways to spend my money. In reality dfw_pilot would rather me save my cash for later years.

Oh wait.. There's more..... I also need another eley hose reel for this post and hose. Like I said... Everyone wants my money.

lol, I like the way you think! I'm always happy to see guys buy quality stuff - it will last a while and cost less in the long run. However, you are wise to remember that this hobby can quickly get you to buy a lot more equipment and toys than first imagined. And it quickly adds up.

Long asleep thread......

Any reason you went with the 2 nozzle boom vs the 3 nozzle boom?

Thanks

Pump capacity. More nozzles running, the more GPM the pump needs to flow at a given pressure. My current set up involves a 3 GPM pump capable of maintaining 500 PSI. I can run a 4 nozzle boom on it and maintain 40 PSI at the nozzles.

So I have a Chapin 24 volt battery back pack sprayer and it claims to spray at 35-40 psi and the pump is rated at .4-.5 gpm

I ordered the 2 boom sprayer with teejet XR11002vs (yellow) nozzles so at .02gpm@40psi I would be right at 0.4gpm@40psi which is what I am getting now with my XR11004vs (red) nozzle.

I will just need to recalibrate my 1000sqft mix rate for carriers?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Almost there!

Waiting on my teejet 3/8 to 11/16 adapter to attach this to my DFW wand!
