The comprehensive range of agricultural equipment distributed by Northmec’s national branch network includes Jacto spraying equipment, developed for high performance spray applications in orchards. “Jacto spraying equipment, which ensures higher productivity for fruit and citrus farmers, operates efficiently in all conditions, offering a uniform work rate even on irregular ground,” says Johan van der Merwe, director retail business at Northmec, a division of CSE Equipment Company.
“This easy-to-operate equipment is designed for efficient spraying and crop protection, from planting to harvesting.” The Jacto sprayer range has tank capacities from 400 litres to 2 000 litres with fan sizes to suit specific spray applications. Like all Jacto sprayers, they are equipped with piston pumps that are reliable, easy to service and economical to run.
The Arbus 1500 Golden unit operates in narrow rows without damaging trees, and features a fan with powerful airflow that requires modest input from the tractor PTO. Stainless steel tubing, stainless steel screens and plastic filters extend the service life. The filter and pump are easily accessible for cleaning. An optional deflector can be installed on either side of the fan to spray in one direction only with increased airflow. F or larger orchards, the Arbus 2000 is an efficient unit.
The unique design of the air distribution housing, combined with high fan power, provides airflow that ensures maximum penetration and coverage ensuring optimum crop protection and effective control of difficult pests and diseases.
An optional Sensorflow system has two adjustable sensors that detect the presence and size of trees, turning the spray nozzles off when no target is detected. This increases efficiency while reducing the amount of chemicals required for an area. To enhance operator safety and protect the environment, the system has a chemical mixer and a container rinse nozzle. Chemicals are mixed in the tank and pressure washing of chemical containers is controlled while container residues are safely combined with the solution in the tank. countrywide branch network provides a technical advisory service, spare parts and repairs. – Joe Spencer Contact Johan van der Merwe on (011) 922 2087 or e-mail [email protected]. |fw
