The range of sprayers available for broadacre operations continues to grow, leaving new and established brands looking for ways to find their niche in the marketplace.
Saritor 62 Active and the Hellios 3000 were two of the sprayers attracting interest during FarmFest, according to Hardi Australia Queensland and northern NSW territory manager Dave Wooley.
"We offer sprayers from 1.5 litres up to 10,000 litres; linkages, trailers, and self-propelled with boom sizes from three metres up to 48 metres," Mr Wooley said.
Launched in March, the Hellios 3000 is a lightweight, 3000-litre sprayer targeted at irrigation and cotton operations. It has an aluminium front boom with widths ranging from 21 - 38 metres and wheel spacings from 1.8 - 4 metres.
The Saritor 62 Active has recently been upgraded and features a hydrostatic transmission, a 6200-litre main tank and has boom widths up to 48 metres.
Hardi Australia have manufacturing facilities in Denmark, France, and Australia, with their Adelaide facility employing more than 100 staff. Adelaide is the final step in the assembly line for Australian products.
They service the whole country with their distribution and dealer network, with National Ag, based in Moree, one of the latest dealers to stock their products.
"It's about being able to offer a better product to more people with good service to back up the products," Mr Wooley said.
