Probably best known for its high-spec, high-tech self-propelled sprayers, Househam now has a range of budget trailed and mounted machines on offer. The latest model to join the line-up is the Ecostar trailed – a no-frills machine built in Hungary. The company says its objective was to come up with a sprayer that is easy to maintain and operate but without the complex electronics that so many machines now have.
Two basic models are available – 2000-litre and 2500-litre – with options for 18m, 20m and 24m booms, tracking drawbars, braked axles, rate-controllers, GPS and various pump sizes. Prices start from £20,246 for the trailed machines while 1000-litre Slimline mounted models kick off at £16,995. Ultra-basic 600-litre and 800-litre sprayers come in below £4000.
