Bill- I was pointed to tractor supply. They carry a number of generic herbicides. Dad has a 20 gallon sprayer that gets powered by 12v. May borrow that and give it a try from the bed of the 130 for doing fence lines..
80 acres of weeds and brush give me new respect for these manicured propertys...

There's a John Deere dealership in Cambridge. Think they'll have generic?
Tractor Supply or Southern States

OK there's a SS in Preston. I'll look next time I go. They sell something called Glyphomate 41. Apparently the patent on Roundup ended in 2000.


May borrow that and give it a try from the bed of the 130 for doing fence lines.. Chicken! I'm sure it'll be prettier than my widget. But at least I have a cab for my tractor so it's not so bad spraying with the nozzles attached to the bucket.

I have resigned to the fact that this is a never ending chore. It will come back every year, no matter what. All I can do is keep hitting it over the head. I start by making pathways and keep opening and expanding them over time.

Need that grapple front end for the tractor to start getting up all the dead shiz piled up in one place.

I have a burn pile that I light off every other weekend after 4pm. Between the barn's and 200+ year old farm house I have tons to do,undo. Last weekend in the deluge after dark we attacked the bricked up fireplaces in the house and now have 4 awesome stone fireplaces and 1 left to open up. It seems like every tree I go to cut the lower branches off off so I can mow around it is choaked with poison ivy vines-not burning that stuff

Doug, I do the tree vines during winter when the leaves are off. Less chance of picking up rash. I use a machete, hand axe, even a chainsaw on the big fat ones. Just cut them low and you'll be good. This helps because the birds have to go elsewhere to get the berries which grow high in the trees; the vines aren't being constantly reseeded. In the spring you'll be amazed how it opens up the canopy to have all that crap cleared out. Obviously no help this year but next year...

OK I got the generic Glyphosate and it works just great. Sprayed Saturday and it was already wilting Sunday afternoon. 4 acres to go!
