Large capacity sprayer covers a lot of ground

LATEST sprayer development from Danfoil is a trailed machine with a capacity of 4000 litres, sufficient, says the firm, to spray 140ha (350 acres) with one fill.

Called the EuroTD, the sprayer uses the companys Eurofoil spraying system rates which is designed to allow application rates as low as 30-50 litres/ha. The Eurofoil system employs air to produce a fine spray, and nozzles claimed to be suitable for all applications.

Options include choice of a single or tandem axle – both with suspension – and a tracking drawbar.

Boom widths of 18m to 32m are available with the boom fitted on a new parallelogram lift incorporating a hydraulically driven double fan built in to the middle section. &#42
