Another nice break from the norm. Looks perfect for Ash Tree's period mate. Nice one indeed. 8):)

(You may well struggle finding pics, Sean. . . . you're spelling the name wrong even though it's plastered down the side of the cab in that pic ::) )

far as i can remember it was the only self propelled sprayer round ours pete ,when we bought it ,all the rest were mounted or trailed

was deff different i must say, cab was very spacious, driver sat to one side so the bit by the door was all clear. been ages hunting down what it was like i said at the start

does anyone know how long they were made for??

tried all sorts, even tried with the right spelling just now, with very little joy, just the few i have found that's it?

meant to say, shes now in bits again, fitted a different back end for the arms which helps no end, pulls the overhang in, and have cut 1cm there abouts out of the tank size, this should all mean i can paint the tank separate to the chassis / metalwork saving me a headache,same will apply to the cab as that will loose the platform at the back to the main chassis work

yeah the door will open mate, its all cut out ready, did come across a pic of one with a fiat skid unit, cab and all, before i found this one, didnt put two and two together so dismissed it, fiat cab threw me

we had the thing till pretty much when we sold up i belive, we did get a mounted sprayer back a few years later, but no front tank

so was ash tree the family farm then mate. well the farm that i worked for have gone back to a trailed sprayer on a 6920. my mate drives it now. the farm that i help out on runs a mounted sprayer and we get a contractor in in the summer with a self propelled machine.

it was mate, one of 3, ash tree , grove farm, (now called something else ) and house farm ,that one was about 20 miles away from the first 2run by my grandad, and 2 uncles, started out at about 2000 acres between the 3 of them , and when sold it was arround 10000ish, maybe a little under that

hence the self propled being bought, the first one was constantly mounted on the 575, took ages to fit / take off, it only came off when we sold it ,we swapped the very low hours sprayer one with the higher hrs regular used one

yeah still need to do that mate, the steps on the other side will fold up to ,so not down when i use,any idea where the exhaust came out?? i seem to remember between the booms and tank on the nearside??

ref exhaust mate i reckon cat walk behind cab needs to be a bir narrower i believe the exhaust came straight up from its original position without bends or elbows. remember the exhaust was near the front of the bonnet not where britains put it. i believe the first machine was farm built on a ford 5000 , unsure if they were manufactured elsewhere or farm produced machines ???.the original farm built had very square cab, as already mentioned some cabs were more rounded on the corners. be nice if anyone knows anymore or correct any of my recollections if wrong.have in the past rebuilt some of these using ford q cab and county high lift kits like knights sprayers used.look forward to seeing this as it progresses.
