Big­ger sprayer added to mar­ket

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - NEWS -

SILVAN Aus­tralia launched its Econopak range of Link­age Sprayers in 2012 and since then it has be­come one of Aus­tralia’s most pop­u­lar link­age sprayers.

Silvan has now added a 600 litre model to the ex­ist­ing 300 and 400 litre tank ca­pac­i­ties for farm­ers cov­er­ing larger ar­eas.

All Econopak’s come com­plete with a six me­tre man­ual fold­ing boom and hose reel.

The Econopak unit in­cludes a rear mounted Eco hose reel fit­ted with a 30 me­tre length of 10mm di­am­e­ter hose and Spot­jet spray gun with an ad­justable spray pat­tern.

The Econopak is there­fore ideal for broad area boom spray­ing plus spot spray­ing re­quire­ments and has been es­pe­cially de­signed to suit small acreage own­ers, coun­cil and land man­age­ment agen­cies.

And they con­tinue to come at an ex­tremely com­pet­i­tive price start­ing at $4000 as a fully as­sem­bled and tested pack­age from the fac­tory, ready for use with min­i­mal com­mis­sion­ing.

The 300, 400 or 600 litre Polytuff im­pact re­sis­tant poly­eth­yl­ene tank has moulded litre cal­i­bra­tions to show the tank level and is fit­ted with a non­spill screw down lid.

Silvan spokesman Gavin Wheatcroft says that mar­ket re­search in­di­cated that there was a mar­ket need for a larger econ­omy link­age sprayer to com­ple­ment the ex­ist­ing 300 and 400 litre ca­pac­i­ties.

“Our de­ter­mi­na­tion re­mains to pro­vide a spray unit that leaves our fac­tory in a fully as­sem­bled con­di­tion with a min­i­mum re­quire­ment for dealer or cus­tomer set up.

“The ben­e­fit of the new 600 litre Econopak is that farm­ers can cover more ground be­tween tank re­fills re­duc­ing down­time and al­low­ing them to get the job done faster.”

THE BIG BOY: Silvan added a new 600l Econopak link­age sprayer to its mar­ket-lead­ing range.
