Linkage sprayers are most commonly used on smaller properties and where the weight of larger trailed or self-propelled sprayers causes compaction issues.
Using the 3-point linkage of a tractor the weight of the spray tank is kept close to the rear wheels for safety and to optimise load-carrying potential.
The cable-drive system has been initially developed for single row Quantum Mist sprayers to enable smaller tractors to use the extremely successful Quantum Mist technology. For linkage sprayers, single-row sprayers and horizontal boom applications, the cable-drive system provides excellent options for growers with
savings in power requirements and fuel use.
For canopy crops, such as grapes or other trellis-grown fruit, four fans – in either 380mm or 500mm configuration – are individually directly driven by a flexible cable from a central gearbox located on the sprayer frame.
Croplands have been working on this design for two years with the aim of introducing the system as a very simple and reliable option. For horizontal use in crops such as strawberries or vegetables, up to five 380mm or 500mm fans can be driven using cable-drive
