For the farm

Spraying nooks and crannies

Get close to the fence line and in hard-to-reach areas with the new Tiger lawn and garden sprayer for ATVs from Lovcik Manufacturing.

The sprayer features a 20-gal. tank and an 8-ft. 3-in. boom (or trigger wand with an 18-in. extension, adjustable nozzle and 25-ft. retractable hose) and uses a relief system with a 12v pump.

You can calibrate the sprayer to the amount of gallons per acre you need; and for a good tank mix, it features a constant bypass agitation system. Price: $495. Contact Lovcik Mfg., Dept. FIN, 7908 Hwy. 20,St. Michael, ND 58370, 701/766-4800.

Super clean

Just like the name says, Castrol's Super Clean All Wheel Cleaner will remove grease, oil, dirt, tar, wax and other buildup from any wheel surface, according to the company.

It's safe to use on all wheel finishes, including clear lacquered, painted, anodized, or polished aluminum as well as chrome plated and gold toned. You simply spray it on the surface and rinse it off for an original "factory shine." It's available in 4- and 24-oz. trigger spray bottles or 30- and 55-gal. drums. Price: $3.49 for 24-oz. spray bottle. Contact Castrol North America, Automotive Div., Dept. FIN, 1500 Valley Rd., Wayne, NJ 07470, 888/227-8765.

Small-tractor canopy

Stay protected from the elements when you attach the Perry EZ soft canopy cover to the cab of your utility tractor.

First attach the company's aluminum canopy frame to your compact tractor and fit the canvas snugly over the frame. Both clear and screened windows are provided and are attached or removed easily with Velcro strips. Bungee cords act as tie-downs to the tractor body. The cab fits most tractors with a 44- x 60-in., or smaller, canopy. Price: $599 (includes shipping). Contact The Perry Co., Dept. FIN, Box 7187, Waco, TX 75714, 800/792-3246.
