with left hand plumbing
4.1. MOUNTING TANK SKID IN A
BOX TRUCK
1. Remove the truck tailgate and store in a
location where it will not be damaged.
2. Locate the tank with boom assembly
standing on the stands as shown below.
FIGURE 1 SPRAYER ON 2 REAR JACK LEGS,
AND 1 FRONT LEG
3. Check that the tank is completely empty of
water or spray solution.
4. Cautiously loosen the set bolt to raise the front
jack leg to allow a truck to back under the skid.
The unit should stand freely on the rear jack
legs without a front leg. The front leg is to
maintain stability while parked during high
winds and should not be required to hold up
an EMPTY tank.
12
5. Align the truck box with the edge of skid. If
necessary, raise the tank skid using screw
jack provided to take the weight off of the leg,
and then drop the skid stand leg to the ground,
and retighten the set bolts in skid stand leg.
socket.
6. Carefully back the truck under the skid taking
care to have the skid centered in the box .
7. The rectangular frame to which the boom
mounts is intended to be supported by the
bumper.
8. Loosen the 4 U bolts wrapped around the
rectangular frame, Adjust the height of the
bottom of the rectangular frame to be the
same distance below the skid as the bumper
is below the truck bed. This adjustment is
needed only the first time a skid is mounted
onto a particular vehicle.
9. Tighten the U Clamps shown with the wrench
above when correct height is achieved,
10. Back up the truck until the rectangular frame is
on top of truck bumper,
11. Install 1” wide ratchet straps to the hooks in
both corners of the truck box to prevent the
unit from blowing out when travelling at high
speed down the road.
FIGURE 2 STRAPS IN BOTH FRONT
CORNERS OF THE TRUCK BOX
12. Ensure that the skid is centered on the truck
box. Install the 2x 2 receiver hitch lug into the
receiver. Tighten in place with the U bolts.
13. The skid should be firmly secured, centered in
the truck box without the opportunity to move
side to side or front to rear.
14. At the front left corner of the box, connect the
24 pin Deutsche plug, and the 2 high
amperage plugs to the harness installed
above.
4.2. MOUNTING IN CAB
CONTROLS
There are 3 components to the in cab controls system
1) The control panel placed on the control board
supplied. It is normally mounted to the arm
rest with the 2 black 1 inch wide x 6 foot long
black straps provided.
FIGURE 4 MANUAL CONTROL BOX MOUNTED
ON WOOD BASE.
FIGURE 5 MICROTRAK RATE CONTROLLER
WITH BOOM CONTROL
FIGURE 3 CABLE FROM IN CAB CONTROLS
AT CORNER OF BOX
2) The high amperage #6 cable that is routed
from the battery to the left rear corner of the
cab. The breakers for over current protection
must be connected right all the battery, so that
any chaffed wires will trip the breaker, NOT
burn the truck down.
13
The rectangular frame is intended for mounting with
the bottom of the bottom bar between 24 and 36”,
preferably in the middle of that range.
The parallel arms are mounted to the rectangular
frame using the ½ inch bolts supplied. Do not over
tighten the bolts, binding the parallel arm ends to the
mounting ears. It is intended that the boom be free to
floating up and down as the gauge wheel maintains
the boom at the correct height in widely varying
conditions.

3) The cable from the in cab control box that is
installed through a grommet in the rear wall of
the truck cab. Note the piece of rubber hose
wrapped around the cable going though the
cab wall – with 2” hole holding the grommet
supplied by Ag Shield .
If the truck has a sliding rear window, the cable
may be fed through the slightly opened window.

5. BOOM OPERATIONS
5.1. PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
Many features are incorporated to allow
convenient operation in virtually all conditions.
Your boom is now equipped with a Spray Shield
which when properly adjusted and consistently
operated at a correct distance from the ground
and/or crop will:
s
p
r
a
y
1. Allow spraying in winds of up to 25 mph (40
km/h).
2. Bend over the plants to allow the chemicals to
cover all parts of plants.
FIGURE 7 AG SHIELD ACTION
3. Retain the spray mist under the canopy to
minimize drift.
On a road top, the shield is set to contact the
road frequently to minimize all spray drift.
Replacing a worn shield section every 3 years is
much lower cost than having a spray drift claim.
The front vertical segment of the shield is set to
contact the top of the plant canopy and bend it
forward while traveling over the ditch. This action
exposes the bottom side of the plant leaves for a
more complete coating action of the chemical. By
creating a zero wind chamber, the spray droplets
and mist fill the chamber and are retained within it
to efficiently coat all sides of the plant. Drift is
minimal. The most effective spray action is
obtained when the spray from the nozzles is
directed into the gap in the crop foliage as it
bends over coming under the front shield.
Straight down has given good results at 5-20
mph.
FIGURE 8 CENTER BOOM MUCH TOO HIGH,
DRIFT WILL RESULT!!!
IMPORTANT
Considerable drift can occur when
the booms are operated too high,
allowing pesticide to escape
outside of the shield. Ag Shield is
not responsible for any claims or
compensation arising from
incorrect operation of unit allowing
drift to occur.
15
under the shield, again causing reduced
pesticide activity.
IMPORTANT
If the boom is operated too low, the
front shields may be bent back into
the nozzle pattern. Raise the boom
to eliminate spraying on the front
5.2. TRANSPORTING AND
FOLDING WING SECTIONS
FOR ROAD TRANSPORT
Adjust the main boom (center section) to brush
the weeds or road surface. As the machine
moves through along the road, the wings should
be adjusted as required to maintain the shields
brushing the grass and weeds. If the wind is able
to get under the edge of the shields, some drift
may occur.
Wing booms should folded to transport position
BEFORE raising the center off of the ground.
With the wing boom tires on the ground, operate
the winch to spool out an extra 12” (30 cm) of
cable.
1. Operate the winch switch to spool out 12”
of extra cable on the left side.
FIGURE 9 CORRECT OPERATION ON BOTH
GAUGE WHEELS
The boom has been designed with boom gauging
wheels to allow the operator keep the boom low
without damage to the shields. If there is no wind,
this is less critical.
When operating in dry conditions there are two
considerations
1. Operating the shields too close to the road
surface may bring up excessive dust,
deactivating glyphosate herbicides. Operators
should watch for this condition, and raise the
boom slightly when applying sensitive
products.
2. Operating with the boom too high up at the
center can lead to dust from the tires going
16
FIGURE 12 FOLDING LEFT WING AFTER
RIGHT WING
FIGURE 10 LOOSE CABLE PRIOR TO
FOLDING WING
Center boom:
For transporting down the road, the center boom
needs to be raised up until the chain that holds
the boom up can be attached to the center
section.
2. At this point the right wing is folded and
racked behind the center boom.
3. Place the retaining pin and key to hold the
wing securely for high speed transport.
FIGURE 13 CHAIN THROUGH KEYHOLE
SUPPORTING BOOM AT "K"
Do not attempt to raise past the point where the
center parallel arm contacts the wand mount. The
winch has sufficient power to damage
components if over travel is attempted.
FIGURE 11 RIGHT WING FOLDED AROUND
TO REAR
1. If equipped with a left wing, fold the
left wing around to the end of the right
wing.
1. Install the retainer pin and retainer clip to
secure for safe road travel
Attach the center lock chain before travelling
down the road at highway speed. The cables are
capable of carrying the boom weight down the
17
road. It is preferred to rely upon the chain while
moving down the road.
2. ADJUSTING SHIELD HEIGHT
WITH GAUGE WHEELS
FIGURE 15 WING BOOM CORRECT GAUGING,
CENTER BOOM NOT CORRECT
The outer gauge wheel has 2 position, Operate in the
lower hole “G” when in taller grass- and in the upper
hole “F” when on bare surface
FIGURE 14 "L" POSITION TO LOWER THE
SHIELD
The shield should be operated in the low L setting
when operating on near bare road surfaces, and
maybe be operated closer to the R setting when then
is a lower of foliage or other wind blocking material.
Always keep the lower edge of the shield within 1.5
inches of the ground or target foliage.
Place the wheel cross bolt through the upper hole “L” ,
to lower the shield as close as possible to the road
surface being sprayed. This will give the maximum
wind protection. If the road surface is dry, you might
wish to operate bit higher to avoid raising dust that will
interfere with the glyphosate application, and activity.

5.3. CENTER BOOM HEIGHT
CONTROL WITH WINCH
For operation down the road or other area to be
sprayed, touch the switch to lower the center boom
until the you “feel” the boom has touched the ground.
The goal would be to have the weight of the boom on
the wheel, and allow the wheel to gauge the shield
height ensure spray drift is minimized.

5.4. RIGHT OR LEFT BOOM
ANGLE / HEIGHT CONTROL
WITH WINCH
Due to the breakaway design of the wing booms, the
booms may be lifted only 40 degrees above the
horizontal. Do not attempt to raise the boom wings
beyond the stop point as damage to components will
result. The wings may never be lifted up 90 degrees
from the horizontal for transport at highway speed
FIGURE 17 RIGHT WING RAISED TO
MAXIMUM HEIGHT
5.6. NOZZLES OR SPRAY TIPS
To minimize weeping of spray from the shields,
only 80 degree (not 110 degree) flat fan tips are
recommended. The shield openings will
accommodate all models of air induction tips and
in smaller sizes these may enhance drift control
under high wind conditions.
The Ag Shield Roadside sprayer is supplied with
purple 80025 tips that allow an application rate of 5
USGal per acre( 50 liter per hectare) with pressures
that the 12 VDC pump can maintain.
Using the following formula , the speeds with the
necessary pressure applied to NEW UNWORN
spray tips can be found in this chart.
Note that the minimum operating pressure must be
greater than 15 psi in order for the diaphragm check
valve on each body to stay open. Operation at less
than 15 psi is likely to result in skipped weeds on some
nozzle bodies at some time. Also, the lower pressures
may not cause even flows through the plumbing to all
tips, some nozzles may receive more pressure than
others resulting in uneven and unacceptable
application.
Note – this chart does not apply to Varitarget nozzles,
or any other tip sizes except the purple 80- 025 size.
5.5. BREAKAWAY BOOM TIP ON
OBSTACLE
Both wing booms are designed with a breakaway to
allow the spray boom tip to strike an obstacle such as
a road sign post without damage to either the spray
boom or the road sign post. The wing returns
automatically to the spraying position. There will be
some “missed” foliage around the post,
This breakaway is not intended to be used in
passing every post, but rather as an emergency
breakaway that is better used at 6mph ( 9kmph)
than at 20 mph( 32kmph).

5.9. VARITARGET NOZZLE OPTION
Compared to conventional nozzles, the VariTarget is a nozzle that is capable of controlling flow rate
and maintaining proper spray pattern and droplet size over an extended range of flow rates.
The chart below shows the widely variable rates and speeds that a orange cap Varitarget is capable
of delivering. Because a small change in pressure makes a very large change in flow rate, the
Varitarget nozzles should only be used with a flow based rate controller, for example the
Microtrak 3405 FII option.

5.10. END NOZZLE ASSEMBLY
IMPORTANT
End Nozzles are not a wind protected device.
Operate only in lower wind conditions and in
areas where spray drift will not harm valuable
crops or trees.
The end nozzle mounts have been designed to allow the tip to be rotated to a higher or lower position correctly cover the
target foliage. To rotate, loosen locking nut on mount with a 7/16 wrench, rotate, and retightened the mount nut.
End nozzle pattern will be about 14 feet under calm conditions. Do not underestimate the distance the spray will travel
from the boomless end nozzles.
The mounts have been staggered and mounted far enough to the rear so that either or both may operate high or low
without interfering with the spray pattern of the other.
FIGURE 19 UPPER AND LOWER END NOZZLES MOUNTED
See chart below- the underlined example is a purple 1/4XP25 tip at 40 psi will deliver an UC or Ultra Coarse spray
pattern - 2.5 gpm total flow between 13.5 and 14.5 feet width of coverage, and apply 6.1 US Gallon per acre equivalent

that valves associated with that tank can be clearly
identified with the tank on multiple tank units.
Tanks are noted as BLUE – main large tank
Green – left hand of double tank RED- right hand of double

There are 2 ways to control the rate of application of the
spray solution:
1) Manually coordinating pressure and speed-- less
accurate- see section 5.1 below
2) With a rate controller that changes the spray output
to compensate for changes in forward speed—much
more accurate system- If the Varitarget nozzle
option has been chosen, you can have higher top
end speeds due to the design of tip. Microtrak rate
controllers are a cost effective – see section 5.2
below
6.1. MANUAL RATE CONTROL
This system is literally having the operator controlling
forward speed to apply a known number of Gallons per Acre
at a particular tip pressure- spraying based on speed and
pressure.
Refer to the chart below, observe that as the forward speed
increases, the pressure must increase by a lot greater
factor. – for example as the pressure triples from 20-60 psi,
the applied rate less than doubles from 10.5 to 18.2 mph

spraying at a moment before.
Your Micro-Trak controller will come preprogrammed
for the nozzle section as they are connected on your
sprayer—Please check the calibration for each boom
section in inches of coverage to make sure it is
correct. For example, a section with 3 nozzles
attached should be at 3 x 20 inches per tip = 60
inches calibration value. An owner may change the
width of sections to adjust for his conditions- for
example after one year of spraying roadside- you
may choose to spray only 40 inches along the
edge—not the 60 or 80 inches sprayed in the
previous year.

6.2. MICRO-TRAK AUTOMATIC SPRAY
RATE CONTROLLER
There is a separate Micro-Trak spray rate manual included
with your shipment. Please refer to it for normal knowledge
of the that system. Here is some info specific to how this
installation is made.
The Micro-Trak spray rate controllers help the operator in 2
ways:
1) The rate controller adjusts nozzle output to
compensate for changes in forward speed.
2) The rate controller adjusts the flow to tips when a
section is shut off –
For example spraying with 7 tips, shut off 3 nozzles
in a section with a manual control – the pressure will
spike immediately and your application rate will
increase by approximately 30%. The operator of a
manual system need to speed up 30% or close the
28
Operators may actual width of boom section in 2
ways,
1) Changes the small hoses and hose barbs to a
section.
2) Install a blocking cap on excess nozzle so that
there is fewer tips spraying in that section.
For example – a sprayer with 7 tips plumbing 1-3 -3
wishes to have only one tip operating on the right
wing section. Simply remove 2 of the 80025 tips, and
replace with blocking caps to have only 2 tips
operating on a right wing.
Now 5 tips are operating – and the truck need not
drive over on the sod roll close to the edge of the
road.
For the purpose of the Micro-Trak rate controller
section calibration--– the section width needs to be
changed from 2 x 20= 60 inches to 1 x 20 = 20
inches. AND the minimum
To check that the Micro-Trak is operating correctly,

To clean out the main “blue” tank , spray until the
sprayer is unable to maintain pressure while
operating on a level surface,
1. Park the truck with the front end 6-24”
higher than the rear end.
2. Operate the sprayer pump until the tank is
empty.
3. Rinse the tank out with clean water and
repeat the pump out procedure above.

Do the clean out as above,
Then remove the intake and output sliding flange
fittings M and P
FIGURE 24 PUMP WITH REMOVABLE FLANGE
FITTINGS
The pump may be operated without fluid in the pump
30 seconds to remove all residual fluid. The pump will
itself empty to allow freezing without damage. You
may leave fluid in the tank overnight if only 3 degrees
of frost is expected.

6.15. AGITATION
The tank has a single agitator mounted on the
front end of the tank .
Note the complete tank down mixing in photo
below when the pump is dedicated to the agitator
only.
Most chemicals do not require significant
agitation after the initial complete mixing at the
time of filling. Consult the chemical label for
agitation recommendations. Travel to the area of
spraying with the agitator open , and pump
running. Expect to completely close the agitation
valve before beginning to spray.

6.17. BOTTOM FILL OF THE SKID
UNIT
6.16. FLASHING BEACON
Ag Shield tank skids are high enough to
completely obscure a cab mounted beacon for
traffic approaching from the rear.
Vehicles are required to have a rotating orange
beacon visible for 360 degrees around the vehicle
while operating on roadways when over width,
and when traveling slower than the traffic.
The skid maybe filled from the ground, no need to go
to the top of the tank to fill.
Water or premixed spray solution may be pumped into
the tank via the bottom fill hose and valve located at
the rear corner of the skid.
To have a solution ready to sprayer after filling, follow
this procedure.
Ag Shield tank skids come with a mounting plate for a
beacon that will allow the beacon to be viewed from
360 around the unit.
Ag Shield skids are equipped with wiring to allow the
Ag Shield in cab control to turn the beacon on and off.
Ag Shield supplies a beacon part number 231681.
1. Attach a 2” fill hose to the inlet near the left
rear corner of the vehicle.
2. Fill the tank ¼ full of water.

6.20. FIELD OPERATION
CAUTION
a)
The boom height and angle are set.
b)
ATV gear, RPM and ground speed
have been determined.
16. Check the sprayer operating section to see that all
recommendations are considered as well.
1. Read and follow chemical container
instructions exactly.
2. Do not allow riders.
3. Maintain a safe speed. Slow down for
obstacles, ditches and rough conditions.
4. Always wear protective gear when using
chemicals.
5. Chemicals are toxic and dangerous. Protect
yourself and others.
17. Proceed down the field at a constant speed. Use
the gear, engine RPM and ground speed
determined during the machine calibration of the
application rate.
18. It is recommended that the operator make one
pass around a field to start then travel back and
forth to obtain the best results. See Figure 6-28:
TRAVEL PATTERN.
19. Turn all booms ON with the Boom Master switch
as the nozzles pass over the edge of the already
sprayed headland and come to the area to be
Follow this procedure when using the sprayer:
1. Attach sprayer to the Truck or UTV.
2. Review and follow the pre-operation checklist (see
section 4.4).
3. Review the location and function of all controls
4.
Read and follow chemical manufacturers'
instructions.
7. Fill the sprayer with water
8. Add chemical to sprayer
9. Thoroughly rinse chemical containers
10. Add water until you have the desired amount of
solution.
11. Close and secure the lid on the tank.
12. Run the pump for 2 to 3 minutes through agitation
before starting to spray to allow time to thoroughly
mix the solution.
13. After the filling and mixing process is completed,
move or back away from the water supply vehicle
14. Before starting, be sure:

sprayed. Use the individual boom switches as
appropriate when finishing a field.
20. When completing a pass and approaching the
sprayed headland, maintain the tractor RPM and
ground speed until the nozzles have covered all
the plants. This will insure a consistent application
rate at the ends of the field.
21. Turn only short enough to stop inside end of
boom. Do not back the inside end of boom up
when turning as this will cause overlap when
starting to spray again.
22. Mix only the quantity of spray required for the job.
Excess chemicals are difficult to store and dispose
of. Do not dispose of them in the farmyard or your
41
drainage system. They will contaminate these
areas.
23. Store chemicals only in their original containers
under lock and key to prevent children or animals
from touching them.
29. All sprayers are equipped with 80° nozzles from
the factory.
6.21. CHEMICAL SAFETY
24. Be very careful to wear the proper protective gear
such as rubber gloves and goggles to protect
yourself. Thoroughly wash all protective gear with
a good detergent after use to remove all
chemicals.
25. Never allow chemicals or solutions to touch the
skin. Some can be absorbed through the skin.
Should such a contact occur, flush the affected
area immediately with clear water from the clean
water tank. Wash the area thoroughly with
detergent to remove any residue.
26. When spraying is done, the machine should
always be rinsed. Follow this procedure:
a) Add 2 to 5 gallons of water to the tank.
b) Run the pump and agitator for 5 minutes to
circulate and rinse the inside of the tank.
c) Use the spray wand to rinse the shields with
the solution.
d) Spray the balance of the rinsate over the
previously sprayed field.
e) When changing chemicals follow the
manufacturers instructions on cleaning agents
to prevent carryover to sensitive crops. When
the tank is washed, the Shields should be
rinsed as well.
CAUTION
1. Mix only the quantity of spray required for the job.
Excess chemicals are difficult to store and dispose
of. Do not dispose of them in the farmyard or your
drainage system. They will contaminate these
areas; always take them to a chemical container
disposal depot.
2. Store chemicals only in their original containers
under lock and key to prevent children or animals
from touching them.
3. Be very careful to wear the proper protective gear
such as rubber gloves and goggles to protect
yourself. Thoroughly wash all protective gear with
a good detergent after use to remove all
chemicals.
4. Never allow chemicals or solutions to touch the
skin. Some can be absorbed through the skin.
Should such a contact occur, flush the affected
area immediately with clear water. Wash the area
thoroughly with detergent to remove any residue.
Quickly remove any clothing that is contaminated.
5. When spraying is done, machine should be
cleaned in the field where the spraying occurred.
Add clean water to tank, start engine and re
circulate, open the tank rinse valve to completely
clean inside of tank. Use the sheet wash wand to
spray rinsate against spray shields.

8. WARRANTY
Ag Shield Manufacturing warrants each new Ag Shield sprayer to be free from factory defects in
material and workmanship under normal use and service, when set up and operated in
accordance with factory instructions for one year from the date of delivery to the original
purchaser.
Ag Shield’s obligation under this warranty is limited to the supplying of replacement parts which
are defective due to factory workmanship or material.
Your Ag Shield Dealer is responsible for providing warranty labour. Credit for required labour is
specifically agreed to on an individual case basis.
We make no warranty as to accessories e.g. rate controllers and foam markers, but warranty is
handled through Ag Shield. Warranty for Honda™ motors is supplied by the closest Honda™
dealer, and is not connected to or determined by Ag Shield.
The warranty is void on any unit which has been tampered with, or modified in any way not
authorized in writing by the factory.
This warranty is void on any unit which is subject to misuse, negligence or accident, or which has
had the serial number tampered or removed.
A “Warranty Claim Form” (sample at end of book) must be submitted to Ag Shield with returned
parts in order for parts to be considered for warranty examination.
A warranty registration page from the front of this manual must be returned to the factory in order
to qualify for warranty examination.
All returned parts must be sent to the factory freight prepaid, and warranty parts will be returned to
you freight collect.
Replacement parts shipped pending receipt of parts for examination will be invoiced, and remain
on your account until such time as examination indicates that a credit for those parts be issued or
that payment is due.
Parts not returned for warranty examination within 30 days must be paid for at that time. Ag
Shield will immediately reimburse any cash paid for items that are later determined defective.
Warranty terms and conditions are subject to provincial and state legislation.
