VIDEO: Small Pasture Weed Sprayer Rental Available

Small Pasture Sprayer (2)

Take control of the weeds in your pastures and grassy areas with the help of our new towable small-pasture sprayer…available for rent from Red Deer County’s Ag Services Department.  

Weeds can create real problems when they invade our productive agricultural land. Red Deer County proactively offers solutions and opportunities to landowners to combat the spread of weeds.  

Our new towable small-pasture sprayer features a walking axel design that can handle rough pasture terrain and tall weeds. You can tow this sprayer behind your truck, tractor, quad, or utility vehicle and achieve a 15 to 30 foot boomless spray width. A 30 foot long hose and handgun will also help you target harder-to-reach spaces. The 100 gallon 400 litre tank will cover 5 to 10 acres depending on your rate of spray.

Call the County Centre to book. Pickup with a deposit of $150. Go over the sprayer procedures with our knowledgeable Ag Services staff. Take the rental home and supply your own water and herbicide. You are ready to take care of your weeds!

For more information on the towable small-pasture sprayer and other weed initiatives from Red Deer County’s Ag Services Department, contact the County Centre or visit
