When I ask growers what machinery they’re looking for at the moment, the majority say that they just want equipment which will make work easier.
One very simple piece of kit which does just that is our new generation sprayer controller, the SprayTrol.
First tested by Nick Seymour in the UK, this combined spray rate controller and switch box was released onto farms in July 2015. As well as taking up minimal space in the tractor cab, these units have a multi line display for ease of reading relative information and for setting parameters.
There are a number of unique programmable features on the SprayTrol which have been designed to help make life easy for operators. For example, if forward speed drops below a certain level, or if the tank volume is running out, the booms can be programmed to switch off.
The controller display head can also be programmed to work on different machines and will conveniently retain the information relative to those machines for future use.
The SprayTrol will accept information from a flow sensor, pressure sensor, tank level sensor and speed sensor and can send information to a regulating valve and to boom control valves.
If you want to chat through the full specifications or want to know more about the SprayTrol, please do give me a call on 01580 712200.
