TAS Country : June 16th 2011
26 Tasmanian Country Friday, June 17, 2011 Special feature Machinery End of Financial Year Goldacres sprayer a star performer GEM: Goldacres 1000-litre compact sprayer. A GOLDACRES compact sprayer, with fitted road pack, is proving to be a star for the City of Greater Bendigo's turf maintenance team. The 1000-litre sprayer uses an 8m boom, foam markers and an engine- driven pump. A gun jet with adjustable nozzle makes for easy work when hand- spraying is needed. The compact sprayer has been used for turf maintenance on 60 sports fields across the Victorian city. The council's Roger Barbetti says the unit has been put to work on weed control programs. ''With the 1000-litre tank, we can usually do two or three fields without refilling. And it uses a braked trailer because it's regis- tered for road use.'' Features include low-drift air induction nozzles to minimise drift, a 6hp Honda petrol engine, a pump capable of 85 litres a minute and a 6:1 reduction gearbox. It also has a single, heavy-duty axle, LED road lights, 45-litre wash tank, double-sided foam markers and a 40-litre chemical induction hopper. The unit rides on 7.5x16 Land Cruiser tyres and is popular with those wanting to spray road- sides or tackle blackberries. Farms plug into Polaris electric power Mark Hinchliffe THERE is a silent electric revol- ution happening on our farms. Wineries, dairies, organic farms, horse studs and other boutique agriculture properties, especially those with indoor facilities, are opting for electric ATVs which don't emit any CO2, according to Polaris marketing manager Neil Anderson. Polaris has one electric model, the Ranger EV ($19,999 driveaway) with 22kW of power, a top speed of 40km/h and 80km of range. ''They are a good fit for an organic farm where the owners don't want to store fuel on the property,'' he says. He says the vehicles are also popular at cellar doors and other farms with tourist attrac- tions and eateries. Anderson says the Ranger EV is also a hit at dairies and horse studs. ''It doesn't scare the stock or put the cows off their milk,'' he says. The Range EV is also being used at mines, where miners work round the clock. ''Catering companies deliver food without disturbing sleeping workers.'' ''If you are in the middle of nowhere you want something that -- rain, hail or shine -- is able to get to where you want,'' he said. 26 Trevor Street, Ulverstone, Tas Phone: 6425 7191 • Fax: 6425 7193 2018773-110617 End of Year Sale Used Tractors Landini Delta 4wd cab 1620hrs $41800 MF8220 155hp $60500 MF3655 155hp $24200 Used McCormick 85hp ROPS 4wd + loader $33000 MF3075 Dyna Shift with Loader $46200 Used Telehandler Merlo P40 140hp Telehandler $93500 Used Cultivation Equipment Used ADP353 Special 3.5m Air Seeder $24200 Used KG403+ PW40 Power harrow 4.0m+packer Roller $16500 Used Kuhn 3.5m Power Harrow $19250 Used Spray Units Used Croplands 900 Litre 12m Boom $5500 (all prices include GST) Call us for all your machinery needs, stock arriving every day Harvest Centre 2018656-110617 ARION 400 Loading, mowing, baling, spraying, tilling and towing....
