As ATVs be­come ever more ca­pa­ble, Quad-X be­lieves that it can de­sign and de­velop prod­ucts that will ben­e­fit the cus­tomer and his/her busi­ness

Country Smallholding - - Inside This Month -

QUAD-X man­u­fac­tures a range of ATV ac­ces­sories and quad equip­ment suited to small­hold­ers as well as larger scale agri­cul­tural op­er­a­tions, land­scap­ers, ameni­ties and the eques­trian mar­ket. The com­pany’s range caters for grass care, weed con­trol and live­stock care needs.

As ATVs be­come ever more ca­pa­ble, Quad-X be­lieves that it can de­sign and de­velop prod­ucts that will ben­e­fit the cus­tomer and his/her busi­ness, but also the en­vi­ron­ment by re­duc­ing chem­i­cal use and min­imis­ing dis­rup­tion to wildlife species and habi­tats.

Many of Quad-X’s prod­ucts have evolved from a con­cern over the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of cer­tain con­ven­tional agri­cul­tural prac­tices. Prod­uct de­sign has also cen­tred on new gov­ern­ment leg­is­la­tion and en­vi­ron­men­tal schemes, all with the aim of de­vel­op­ing equip­ment that will help to pre­serve the en­vi­ron­ment and wildlife habi­tats for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. Quad-X bet­ter un­der­stands th­ese is­sues be­cause it is based near Glens of Antrim, in an Area of Out­stand­ing Nat­u­ral Beauty in tran­quil Co Antrim coun­try­side.

Quad-X man­u­fac­tures a range of spot sprayers that have been used through­out Europe. There are nine mod­els or they can be built to a cus­tomer’s own spec­i­fi­ca­tion.

Quad-X ProSpray 60ltr + 100ltr

Comes equipped with a high-ca­pac­ity pump, mak­ing it ideal for both spot spray­ing and boom spray­ing. It fits onto any ATV or lawn trac­tor in sec­onds, has a UV pro­tected tank and is equipped with 5m of hose and an alu­minium lock­able hand lance to re­duce break­ages and cor­ro­sion. To help save time and hassle, it has a drain plug for easy drainage of tank con­tents and the bot­tom of the tank has fix­ing in­serts to al­low bolt­ing to any flat sur­face.

Quad-X ProSpray Elite 60ltr + 100ltr

The ProSpray Elite is based on the ProSpray model, so it comes with all the same fea­tures and more. It has a pres­sure gauge and reg­u­la­tor ag­i­ta­tion sys­tem for pow­der-based chem­i­cals, plus a quick­re­lease valve for easy at­tach­ment and re­moval of booms.

Quad-X ProSpray Elite 135ltr

Quad-X of­fers the ProSpray Elite in a 135ltr tank, which has a cone shaped bot­tom, mean­ing that no chem­i­cals are wasted dur­ing spray­ing. The pump is lo­cated un­der the tank which pro­tects it when it is used on typ­i­cal util­ity and pickup cargo beds.

Quad-X EcoSprayer 60ltr + 100ltr

The Quad-X EcoSprayer 60ltr/100ltr is ideal for both spot and boom spray­ing. This model is per­fect for around the farm, small­hold­ing and golf cour­ses. The Quad-X EcoSprayer is equipped with an auto cut out switch to save on battery life.

Quad-X MonoSpray 60ltr + 100ltr

Ideal for those with a sim­ple spray­ing job in mind, as the pump is suited solely for spot spray­ing. It comes with 2m of hand lance hose.

Quad-X Booms

With prices start­ing from as lit­tle as £ 94, why not add an at­tach­able al­loy boom to bring out the best in your sprayer. The booms range from 1.5-5m and can eas­ily be at­tached to any ATV or lawn trac­tor. The 1.5m boom is avail­able with the hedgerow swing arm sys­tem that en­sures no dam­age is caused to any ob­sta­cles.

Anti-drift booms are also avail­able. They are gal­vanised for dura­bil­ity and fea­ture a cover to pre­vent spray drift. Anti-drip noz­zles pre­vent grass scorch­ing. Both outer sec­tions can swing back for easy trans­port and they de­flect on im­pact with ob­sta­cles to pre­vent break­ages. Outer wings have an­gle ad­just­ment for spray­ing hedgerows. All booms are quick and easy to at­tach to any ATV. For more in­for­ma­tion on Quad-X sprayers and booms, visit www.quad-x.com; tel: 028 2587 2800.
