Munckhof VariMAS 1 row fruit sprayer

Following the success of the VariMAS 3, Munckhof developed its compact VariMAS 1 row orchard sprayer. This flexible and agile sprayer has a high capacity and can also be used in berry plantations and vineyards, as well as orchards.

The Munckhof Air System Orchard Sprayer (VariMAS Orchard Sprayer) has been developed in close collaboration with fruit growers to meet the growing demand for more spray capacity, an even higher drift reduction and even more accurate leaf coverage.

According to Munckhof the low power requirement of the VariMAS 1 allows growers to save over 25% on fuel costs.

The Munckhof Air System Orchard Sprayers excel through optimal leaf coverage. This is ensured by the accurate adjustment of the driving speed, pressure on the nozzles (7 bar) and the rotation speed of the pump. 

The high-quality distribution of air and liquid ensures direct air flow and optimum atomisation. This creates a minimal loss, and the VariMAS has a proven drift reduction of 99%, tested and demonstrated by Wageningen University (WUR).

The air bag can suit tree heights from 2.50 up to 3.50 metres. Compact construction, low weight and centre of gravity mean this sprayer is extremely stable, even during transport.

The VariMAS is equipped with a mechanical agitator for a constant, optimal distribution of water and active substance. A mixing pump prevents clogging of the cap and silting up or contamination of the filters during filling. The air pockets are flexible, lightweight and do not oxidize. They therefore have a long service life.
