Boom width and clearance
Whether you’re covering large areas or hilly terrain, consider the width and clearance of booms.
Fertilisers and some pesticides can be extremely acidic or alkaline, so ensure machinery has durable powder coating to avoid damage to the framework.
Are you on heavy soils or want to be out on the paddock quicker after the rain? Look at the weight of the equipment – a lighter trailer such as the Spray Coupe is an ideal choice due its lighter build.
