Dennis Whitney - Macadamia Grower
Over a decade ago while attending a spray field day, a grower made the comment "I couldn’t possibly use a single sided sprayer because it would take twice as long". At the time I thought if this type of sprayer did the best job it would still be worth using.
Fast forward to today and after using the new Tuffass/Bora developed by Tuffass Machinery last season I know it doesn’t take twice as long. When spraying all the other functions – filling, mixing chemicals, travelling and cleaning the tank take the same time. The real difference is with this new sprayer design I’m now getting good coverage on my 10-15mt high trees, while travelling at 4.2km/h instead of 2.9km/h like before.
The twin hydraulic adjustable tower operating on my slopes gives me the confidence I am spraying my taller, thick trees properly. I can then move into my 6yr old trees and simply adjust the tower from the tractor easily.
This sprayer fits through my 7mt rows easily with its unique narrow tower design which can be also folded down to fit into a standard garage door.
Finally to achieve proper spray coverage on these tall trees with a minimal HP tractor didn’t seem possible until now- I couldn’t be happier with the whole package.
