Hustler Equipment has launched a new range of booms for its Applic8r linkage sprayers – the next generation of its Katipo series.

Hustler’s new EagleTech boom arrives
The new Applic8r sprayer EagleTech booms have been designed to weigh less and be more stable.

These new booms are available across the Applic8r range, with current tank size options from 680–1150L and with boom widths ranging from 6–14m, from manual controls to full ISOBUS. The new EagleTech booms have yaw, vertical and individual sectional suspension – with the end sections suspended separately from the intermediate section to reduce boom weight and increase stability.

Using mast rollers instead of slides helps lessen friction on the vertical suspension – helping reduce the impact on the boom in rough terrain, while the hydraulic dampeners help create a smooth glide not often found in booms of this size, it says.

The EagleTech boom also comes with in-line sectional filters, which Hustler says eliminates the need to run nozzle filters – meaning the operator only needs to change five sectional filters instead of 28 nozzle filters.

On top of all this, Hustler’s Australian business development manager Jordan Cornes says the EagleTech has the most userfriendly wing-lift around.

"Operators get full individual wing lift from the hip of the boom, making this perfect when working in undulating to steep country," he says.

"Running a single remote for each wing direct from the tractor enables the operator to quickly and easily follow the contour of the ground with the booms."

The boom also features a unique transport lock for safer travel on roads, and it also acts to relieve loads normally induced during travel, increasing the longevity of the boom. The lock is operated from the cab, saving an extra stop when entering and exiting each field.

"Farmers globally are getting more and more aware of the massive savings associated with owning their own spray rig, in time, money and convenience – not to mention peace of mind of knowing the quantity of chemical applied,"
Cornes says.

"Owners of our sprayers say that often they can pay off the initial investment in one to two years." Hustler also released a range of ultra-compact front tank kits from 890 to 1150L and a new ErgoMax induction hopper system to complement the Applic8r range, in September. The EagleTech boom can be retrofitted to any one of Hustler’s mounted boom sprayers, it says.
