Silvan’s new trailed pasture sprayer
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.
