Miller’s latest spraying technologies are a feature of the new model, as is a 4500L stainless steel tank or the option of a 3800L tank with 700L of direct chemical injection capacity for row crop farmers.

Jon Bent of Miller’s Australian distributor, McIntosh Distribution, says the 7310’s new chassis design has created a five-percent lighter machine compared to the Miller Nitro 5240 model, allowing for improved flotation and lower soil compaction.

The front-mounted sprayer has an even weight distribution and near-equal load on each tyre, which provides balance and maximises power to the ground while minimising compaction. This makes the Nitro perfect for cotton, corn, sorghum and sugar cane, as well as irrigated cropping paddocks, Bent says.

Thanks to the new chassis the Nitro has a 2m ground clearance, which McIntosh says will allow late season applications in these crops, as well as winter crops like canola.

The 7310 sprayer also uses Miller’s redesigned "innovative drivetrain" system, which is said to provide up to 30-percent in fuel savings compared to similar machines, while also providing maximum power.

The new drivetrain was redesigned with a variable displacement hydrostatic drive system and planetary torque hubs, providing faster responses to speed changes.

The Miller Nitro 7310 is powered by a 6.7L, 310hp Tier 2 engine and has a top road speed of 56km/h.

Bent says another major benefit of Miller’s latest model is the availability of a full range of boom options, including a 48.5m Pommier RA Falcon boom and Miller’s Spray-Air boom.

The latter allows for more targeted chemical applications through air-assist and air-atomisation technology, forming a powerful spray nozzle system.

A right-hand console chassis monitor, mounted on an adjustable swing arm, allows operators to easily program and control multiple sprayer functions.

"With the significant chassis changes and new features through to small alterations right across the machine, it all adds up to a brand new Miller sprayer," Bent says.
