Product Description

Publication date: January 2017 - No. 84

Format: downloadable pdf - 23 pages

The Australian market for self-propelled (SP) sprayers appears to be booming, with a recent Kondinin Group survey revealing one in three members now own at least one SP unit.

It doesn’t seem that long ago they were regarded as a contractor’s machine, yet now are arguably the most important machine on Australian grain farms.

With the surging interest in SP sprayers and the continual release of new or updated models, and new manufacturers entering the game, Kondinin Group recently tested five models from Case IH, Goldacres, Agrifac and Miller, as well as new entrant Amazone.

Researchers Mark Saunders, Ben White and Josh Giumelli hit the road with their portable test track, bringing members up-to-date on sprayer tests conducted in 2009, 2012 and 2014. Further tests are planned in early 2017 to capture new some further new releases which were not available in the current test timeframe.
