Sil­van’s new trailed pas­ture sprayer

Farm World News - - Farm World 2016 -

Sil­van Aus­tralia has re­leased a new 2,500 or 3,000 litre ca­pac­ity Pas­ture Sprayer that is pro­vid­ing dairy farm­ers, their con­trac­tors and pas­ture based prop­er­ties with the ideal choice for pas­ture man­age­ment and ren­o­va­tion projects.

A key fea­ture of the Sil­van Pas­ture Sprayer range is the many boom choices avail­able up to 18 me­tres long with elec­tric con­trol op­tions that can be cho­sen to suit the ap­pli­ca­tion needs of a farmer or con­trac­tor.

Even four dif­fer­ent axle and tyre op­tions are avail­able.

A com­mon fea­ture how­ever is the base 2,500 or 3,000 litre ca­pac­ity Polytuff im­pact re­sis­tant polyethy­lene spray tank com­plete with a cal­i­brated fill sight line mounted on a fully gal­vanised chas­sis.

An­other fea­ture is the stan­dard 100 litre ca­pac­ity fresh wa­ter tank mounted for­ward on the chas­sis for tank flush­ing or hand wash­ing use for op­er­a­tor safety.

The ba­sic pump of­fer is a PTO drive Sil­van self-prim­ing oil-backed di­aphragm pump with 121 litres per minute ca­pac­ity at 2000 kPa pres­sure.

How­ever, three other pump op­tions up to a hy­draulic drive cen­trifu­gal pump of 400 litres per minute open flow at 7000 kPa pres­sure to suit a trac­tor with the avail­able hy­draulic ca­pac­ity.

Four dif­fer­ent con­trol op­tions in­clude a five sec­tion Sil­va­matic elec­tric con­troller up to a Bravo au­to­matic spray rate con­troller with each op­tion en­abling the sprayer op­er­a­tion to be con­trolled from the trac­tor cabin.

The four track and wheel op­tions range from a two me­tre width track axle with 24 inch lug tyres up to an ad­justable track op­tion fit­ted with 44 inch lug tyres.

The in­ter­me­di­ate choices also in­clude a turf tyre choice and also a Sim­plic­ity axle fit­ted with 15 inch lug tyres.

Recog­nis­ing that ev­ery farm has dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter­is­tics the spray boom choices range from a 10 me­tre spray width hy­draulic fold Devil Boom and then in grad­u­a­tions of 12, 15 and 18 me­tre booms in­clud­ing self lev­el­ling, hy­draulic lift and airbag sus­pen­sion op­tions.

Ad­di­tional op­tions avail­able ex fac­tory from Sil­van in­clude two dif­fer­ent foam mark­ers, a chem­i­cal hop­per, three or five sec­tion elec­tric over hy­draulic con­trols and two hose reel choices with hose length and noz­zle choices to suit any pro­posed spot spray­ing ap­pli­ca­tion.

Sil­van Aus­tralia’s spray­ing spe­cial­ist Chris Tait says that his com­pany’s long ex­pe­ri­ence and lead­er­ship in spray­ing equip­ment and ac­ces­sories con­firms that ev­ery pro­posed ap­pli­ca­tion is dif­fer­ent.

“Our farmer and con­trac­tor clients al­ways want op­tions to ‘spec their sprayer’ to their in­di­vid­ual op­er­a­tional needs.

“Sil­van be­lieves that by of­fer­ing a strong fea­ture based 2,500 or 3,000 litre ca­pac­ity trailed spray tank it ad­dresses the core re­quire­ment with the abil­ity to add the op­er­a­tional and boom choices needed to ad­dress the in­field re­quire­ments on farm.

“It is likely to be well recog­nised as the so­lu­tion on which the best op­er­a­tional choices can be built” Mr Tait says.

The base price for the 2,500 litre Sil­van Pas­ture Sprayer ranges from $21,495 in­clud­ing GST.

The new Sil­van Aus­tralia trailed pas­ture sprayer de­liv­ers an ex­ten­sive range of op­tions for se­lec­tion by farm­ers and con­trac­tors based on a 2,500 or 3,000 litre ca­pac­ity Polytuff spray tank with a choice of pump, con­trol, axle, chem­i­cal mixer and boom choices up to 18 me­tres in width.
