    I am in the finishing stages of building my liquid tank and spray bar, but i cannot decide the spacing of the stream nozzles. 20"? It seems to me that 20" is too wide. Anyone have suggestions or specs i could go off of? I havent purchased the tips either so if there is a tip better than the other out there please let me know.

    Drill 1/8 in holes in a sch 80 pvc pipe every 6in. works great and you don't have to worry about plugging tips in the middle of winter. what liquid are you going to spray?

    DIDO, this is how one of our bars is set up and works great. Our other bar has actual stream nozzles and they are spread out about every 12" and I think the coverage is terrible, this weekend I am drilling 3/16 holes in between the nozzles. We drill 3/16 holes in everything, try different sizes but we found 3/16 works very well.

    Personally I use SJ3's, so I can change flow rate if I want. Kubota can comment on spacing but im thinking about 15" apart would work. Depends how high you are off the ground aswell,
