The sprayer comes with two broadcast nozzles that adjust from a straight stream to a hollow cone spray that can provide you with a 10' wide spray pattern.

Yes, very easily so. You will have to estimate the 10' then try it and see, but it only takes one or two times to get good at it.

This sprayer's range can be adjusted in two ways. It has an adjustable set screw located near the pressure switch to allow for pressure adjustment, you can tighten or loosen the set screw while spraying and read the gauge to set the correct pressure. Reducing the pressure will reduce the spraying width of the nozzles. Also, this sprayer comes with a boom valve which allows you to turn off chemicals/water to the left, right, or both boom nozzles. This will further allow you to control your spray patterns/widths.

very much so, and easy too. 40 feet maybe tough...depending on how high you mount your sprayer and how tall the cover is that you are trying to spray over.

This sprayer has not been tested when the spray tip/nozzle is removed as to what the spray pattern emitted will result in. The spray may still be too pressurized or erratic(not a centralized stream) for watering plants.

Question

How do I connect the broadcast sprayer?

It looks like the broadcast sprayer attaches to a draw bar on an atv. My atv has a receiver hitch, not a draw bar. How would I connect this to it?

This sprayer can be mounted in a pickup bed. The broadcast bracket though is designed to attach to the hitch on the ATV so it may not readily bolt on a truck hitch. The sprayer does include tie down straps for mounting. Any other type of mounting would be determined by the purchaser.

Yes - its the heighth off the ground that you should be trying to solve. If youre to high, the amount of spray or liquid will be to little,or you could go slower. This product was designed for a ATV but I have mine mounted in a small trailer that I pull behind my rideing lawn mower. Just think out of the box,it will work.
