Trailed spray range

LATEST addition to Hardis sprayer line-up is the four-strong range of Evrard Meteor trailed models.

Offered in capacities of 2500, 2800, 3400 and 4100 litres, with booms widths from 24 – 36m (78.7 – 118ft), the range features a single helical spring suspension axle, to reduce shock loadings during field and road work. The system is also designed to improve boom stability.

An automatic steering system is also available for the Meteor range, where two potentiometers – one on the tractor drawbar, the other on the sprayers tracking axle – correlate the turning angle of the two components.

Standard specification includes the Regulator IV electronic application rate control unit, parallel linkage boom suspension with electronic tilt, 280 litre rinsing tank and 15-litre clean water container.

Prices range from £33,710 to £44,000; automatic steering adds £2950.
