Default Estate sprayer rebuild

When we moved to the farm we bought an "estate sprayer" from the beloved Princess Auto.
It worked, but with 170° spray heads it was not something you sprayed close to Mrs Rusty's flowers.
The pump motor finally gave up this year so it was time for a rebuild.
I had salvaged some ag spray tips that fit on 3/4" pipe, and scrounged the resource pile for an old RV water pump I got at a garage sale.
Using what I had on hand, I built a new spray boom and mounted the new pump and replumbed the whole unit.
I set my pressure at about 20psi, and had proper flow rate when travelling at approximately 5mph with an 8.5 foot coverage.
I'll need to build a new carriage before too long, but I. Back in the spraying business (at home, anyway.)

I went to the beloved Princess yesterday
I have one of those sprayers and they do have a pretty wide spray pattern. Even iv a guy changed the boom end tips it would help
You got freedom of speech, if you don't say too much.
