The new self-propelled sprayer is the latest model in the well-known Nitro range which is distributed in the country by McIntosh Distribution.

According to Miller, the 6365 features a new propulsion system which allows the machine to operate at maximum power with minimum fuel consumption.

McIntosh Distribution spray division manager Jon Bent says the new model features all the components growers have come to expect from a Nitro such as the front mounted design which offers great visibility; high underframe clearance; industry-awarded Hydralink suspension and the versatile Quick-Attach system.

The major difference between the 6365 and similar machines on the market, according to Bent, is the innovative drive train system which optimises its performance.

"The new drivetrain has been completely redesigned with variable displacement hydrostatic drive system and planetary torque hubs," he says.

"This means faster response to speed changes through more efficient transfer of power to the ground, even at lower engine RPM, all contributing to a reduction in fuel consumption.

"Early feedback from operators is that we are seeing up to 30 per cent reduction in fuel consumption with the 6365 when compared to equivalent-sized machines."

The 6365 also features new styling with increased access to the engine bay making servicing much easier and convenient.

It also has a redesigned cooling system with a reposition of cooling components for increased efficiency and reduction in operator and environmental noise.

"The cab boasts a larger full-colour touch screen display, monitoring engine and spray system functions and includes an integrated rear facing camera with full-time rear vision during transport and is automatically on when reversing," Bent says.

"Outside the cab, a full array of LED lights now produces even better night vision than previous models."

Miller’s Spray-Air boom technology is available with the 6365. The innovative system uses an air-atomisation method to create optimum-sized droplets that are not affected by speed and pressure changes for a more efficient and uniform chemical application.

Customers can choose from a variety of tank sizes on the 6365, ranging from 4500-litre to 6100-litre.

Bent says the first deliveries for the 6365 are expected in February.

"If customers are considering upgrading to a 6365 and they want to make sure they have it in time for pre-seeding spraying, now is the time to act to ensure delivery," he says.
