    36m back to 24m

    Who’s done this? We love the extra output 36m offered over 24m and less wheelings etc. But the negatives - trailed machine: 1. uneven liquid fert application as it takes longer to get the required rate out of the booms due to the extra length and size of the pipe work (400l pump) so all our...

    What sprayer?

    Hello, I’m looking at taking back our spraying in hand. We’ve had a contractor for a number of years but the timing of applications is getting worse and I think it’s expensive. Basically it’s a total workload of 3000-3500ac per year depending on rotation. We’re paying between £12,000 and £14,000...

    Broadcast cover crop into standing crop 36m

    Just wondering if anyone is successful in broadcasting cover crops into standing crop pre harvest. We are at 36m, is anyone doing it at that width, and also has it proved a successful method of establishment? Cheers

    Operator’s manual for Chafer T2000?

    Hi all, Can anyone point me in the direction of an operator’s manual for my recently acquired Chafer T2000 trailed sprayer? It’s from 1993 but has been really well looked after. I’d like to try to keep it in the same nick. I’m also trying to figure out the most appropriate size of row crop...

    What £30k tractor?

    To pull a 4000 litre trailed sprayer (32m boom) as its main job (liquid fert as well) mostly flat land no root crops. It’ll also cart corn with 15t trailers, roll with 12m rolls and run a 4m combi drill on rare occasions. Edit - it’ll need a big oil pump as the sprayer runs off the free flow...

    Sprayer boom widths

    We’ve been using a trailed 36m sprayer running on 650’s all year round (tractor also on 650’s). We are thinking of selling the sprayer as it’s now 10 years old. Looking around newish trailed machines have shot up in price making decent used SP’s look attractive again but they all seem to be 24m...

    Horsch leeb lt vs Kv Ixtrack T4 vs Amazone ux

    as the above, I am choosing among the above mentioned. Horsh sure has very stable booms, But it is 10 percent ahead of almost full spec Amazone ux. Haven't received Ixtrac price yet, but hoping it will cost the least. I also have kv spreader with isobus control unit and section control...

    On vehicle battery trickle and boost unit.

    I have been searching for a commercially available unit to permanently install on my sprayer and permanently wire to the battery. It needs to plug into the mains when parked up, switch it on and it keeps the battery trickle charged. Then when I come to start the sprayer it needs a simple boost...

    Fertiliser nozzles

    Presently using chafer dribble bars but a potential change to a different sprayer means that nozzles would be the way to go. What are you using and how do you get on with them?
