Farms & Farm Machinery - - News -

Sil­van Aus­tralia has re­leased the Smooth­flo Squat­pak, a spray sys­tem de­signed to man­age nox­ious weeds and growths in hard-to-reach places like gul­lies, un­der fence lines, in tree plan­ta­tions and on road­side verges.

The Smooth­flo Squat­pak is a 300-litre spray unit com­bi­na­tion that comes equipped with a 12V elec­tric pres­sure pump and the buyer’s choice of hose reel.

Due to its ac­cu­rate spray ap­pli­ca­tions, Sil­van says the Smooth­flo Squat­pak is suit­able for lo­cal gov­ern­ment fa­cil­ity man­agers, farm own­ers and ru­ral-life­style prop­erty own­ers.

The unit has an im­pact re­sis­tant, ul­tra­vi­o­let sta­bilised Polytuff tank, which is fit­ted with an in­ter­nal baf­fle and a drain plug for emp­ty­ing and clean­ing when fin­ished. An eas­ily ad­justable atom­is­ing spray gun is also in­cluded to pro­vide a va­ri­ety of spray streams.

Size wise, the Smooth­flo Squat­pak mea­sures in at 1050mm long, 580mm high and 1010mm wide, which Sil­van says makes the spray sys­tem ideal to carry on a ute or UTV. The Polytuff tank has a dry weight of 27.5kg.

The Sil­van Smooth­flo Squat­pak re­quires a ve­hi­cle’s 12V power sup­ply for its Aquatec DDP 552 series pump that in­cludes an auto by­pass, a pres­sure sens­ing switch with adap­tive pres­sure sens­ing mech­a­nism that damp­ens changes in pres­sure to elim­i­nate pul­sa­tion.

The Aquatec pump is able to pro­vide 7lt/m open flow or 120psi work­ing pres­sure.

The unit comes with a power ca­ble and al­li­ga­tor clips for at­tach­ment to the ve­hi­cle in use.

Sil­van of­fers a 30m hand-wind-up hose reel or a 15m swiv­el­ling spring re­trac­tion hose reel, which is ideal for spray­ing from a ve­hi­cle in mo­tion along de­fined ar­eas like drive­ways, plan­ta­tions, be­neath fence lines or road­sides.

Each hose reel comes fit­ted with a lock­ing mech­a­nism to hold the hose in place or to se­cure or wound tight for trav­el­ling.

The Sil­van Smooth­flo Squat­pak spray unit comes at a cost of $1439 and is avail­able through Sil­van Aus­tralia’s authorised dealer net­work.
