Silvan unveils 1100 litre sprayer
Newly added to the Silvan Three Point Linkage Sprayer range is a 1100 litre capacity tank unit in addition to the 400, 600 and 800 litre capacity units.

Other models in the range include the 400, 600 and 800 litre sprayers.

Silvan says the addition of the new sprayer comes as a result of ongoing product improvement and development after taking into account users experiences and requirements.

On top of an increased tank volume, Silvan says the 1100 litre sprayer has extra features for convenience including a Camlock bottom fill added for tank filling from a ground level and a chemical suction probe for safe chemical transfer.

The tank design also ensures weight is carried close to the tractor and the control valves are easy to reach. Both the 800 and 1100 litre models offer an optional 70 litre capacity freshwater flush tank that is moulded to fit within the shape of the main spray tank and its galvanised steel structural frame.

 The optional tank allows users to safely flush the spray tank, filter, boom and spray nozzles ready for the next application.

Silvan also adds the entire Super Series range now features a redesigned boom frame to utilise a vertical steel boom channel which employs four fixing bolts enabling the boom to be adjusted and positioned to the ideal spray height for crops or pastures.

Silvan Product Specialist David Carr says feedback from growers indicated they wanted to be able to adjust the height of the spray boom to suit their field conditions.

"Silvan is able to offer a wide choice of galvanised steel booms where the boom height above the pasture or crop level can be adjusted to the desired height by sliding the boom up or down the new mounting channel and then securing it in the desired position using a four bolt connector.

Booms that can be fitted to the Super Series sprayer include Silvan's Devil or Rowmaster Booms, the manual fold Field and Fieldmaster boom,s the Olive and Vine booms or the boomless Casotti Sprayer which Silvan says is ideal for use in awkward or hard to reach places.

The traditional features of the Silvan Three Point Linkage sprayer range have also been retained.

These include the impact resistant low profile Polytuff polyehthylene spray tank carried within the sturdy hot dip galvanised steel frame with an improved adjustable hitch system to suit a wide range of tractor mounting points.

The raised pump mounting height also enables the ideal alignment of the PTO shaft from the sprayer to the tractor.

Options that customers can fit to the sprayer range include electric control valves, automatic rate controllers, foam markers, and hose reels with pressure hose and spray gun for spot spraying applications.

Silvan urges customers who wish to find out more to visit Silvan's website or call 1300 SILVAN.
