5 Things You Can Do With A Three Point Linkage Sprayer On Your Farm

A good 3PTL Sprayer can take care of many jobs that you’d normally need other equipment for.

Here’s a small list:

1. Sanitising

  • Disinfect a large area with minimal hassle
  • Ideal for chicken, deer or goat farming and where ever hygiene levels are important

2. Water Blasting

  • It goes without saying, 3PTL sprayers can make great water blasters with up to 5000psi (depending on the pump model)

3. Multi-Gun Spraying

  • Have up to 3 guys working with sprayer guns from your 3PTL sprayer (forget the hassle of back-packs sprayers)
  • Perfect for medium pressure applications and applying something in a hurry

4. Fire Fighting

  • Great for controlling small scrub fires (although we didn’t tell you this!)

5. Water Trough Cleaning

  • Attach a suction device (sludge pump) to empty the water trough
  • Clean the empty trough using the high pressure sprayer
  • Use the surplus water to refill the trough and get on to the next job

Oh yeah, and you can use your three point linkage sprayer for regular stuff too like spraying paddocks.

If you’re struggling away with an ATV sprayer or you’re frustrated with your existing setup, let’s talk. Call me (Mike) on 07 847-7811.

5 things to look for on a back pack sprayer

 

Are you confused over small garden sprayer options?

How do you confidently decide which back pack sprayer is your ‘total cost of ownership’? Do you include longevity, serviceability, cost of down time due to poor quality and unreasonable component breakage and wear?

In this industry – getting what you pay for is very relevant  – and the old adage of “the cheapest will do” will usually bite you – hard!

Especially with manually operated sprayers.

So smarten up now.

Here’s some common sense advice when searching for a good quality back pack sprayer.

  1. Check the industry standard for which brands are common to say City Council use, contractor use, property maintenance company usage etc Continue reading

How to increase bio-security for packhouses, orchards and farms

 

Vehicular traffic to your property can increase risk of disease transfer.

This can be a threat to your agricultural or horticultural business!

These include contractors, transport vehicles, or your own vehicle(s)

1. Have you considered what a possible infestation or bio-security risk would cost you in real money?

2. Is it time to assess your threat level?

  • Check the number of entry ports onto your property and visits made on a daily or weekly basis.
  • Check where your visitors have come from, the previous properties visited before yours.
  • Check the cleanliness of the visitor vehicles, open deck or closed deck trucks and trailers, visible soil loadings on       ledges, horizontal surfaces, is the soil wet or dry, is there build up of dirt and residue  in crevices and   undercarriages?
  • Check for current disease alerts for transportable and/or contagious threats relevant to your enterprise.

 

3.  Consider the solution to suit your site:

 

Options for vehicle bio-security treatment include;

  • Self-contained vehicular spray treatment system at the entry to your property. A drive through system capable of  automatically sensing the vehicle and applying the exact volume of disinfectant sanitizer on the exterior surfaces.
  • Spray gun and hose located at the entry for manual spray treatment by the vehicle driver/operator.
  • Daily pressure clean of vehicles with dosed with sanitizer by the driver /operator.
  • Pressure clean and sanitize related handling equipment such as loaders and forklifts.

Easy boat wash system

Want to save time, effort and water? Then check this out!

Earlier this year Spray Pump Services designed and supplied the core equipment for a boat rinse-off system.

The brief was to provide enough force to remove evaporated salt water residue and loose organic matter from the exterior surfaces – without manual hosing or chemicals.

It provides a controlled efficient and quick rinse down with minimum water volume and boosted pressure with no damage to the surfaces being treated.

Initially hot water was also considered to dissolve the salt rapidly, but sufficient pressure and ambient temperature water achieved the desired result.

The client was satisfied with his investment and the project was a success.

See it work on  boatwash – YouTube

Spray Pump Services provide the pressure solutions required for vehicles, boats, plant and machinery – for manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic applications.

We utilize pressure, volume and nozzle technology to save you resources and time.

How water blasting saves time and money!

Its simple really, time is money for most people.

Its a double win – win when you save both, or a double lose – lose when you don’t.

So how do you plan for your next water blast job or contract?

By matching the equipment with the work for profitability – its a no-brainer!

If the job requires 4000 psi and 30 litres per minute, why would you want less than that – do you actually want to be uneconomic – of course you don’t!

In fact why not have margin for reliability and speed, you wouldn’t risk a ‘just enough’ plant and equipment to provide your next meal would you?

You will never regret having more than enough power to make your customers confident.

Biosecurity for vehicles at the farm gate

 

Have you considered the potential threat to your business at the access points to your property?

Vehicles entering your property without undergoing even a basic sanitising treatment can be like playing roulette!

‘ARE YOU FEELING LUCKY – WELL ARE YOU – REALLY? 

Transporting produce and livestock can be a risk to many bacteria and disease vulnerable businesses.

Lets face it, trucks, vans, private vehicles – entering your property – how do you know where they’ve been???

What’s hitching a ride and looking for a new home???

*Apart from the stress it can cause, the economic ramifications can be colossal!

*Then there’s the frustration of deciding how to combat this threat.

*So… how are you going to deal with this problem?

ATV Sprayers: 3 Questions To Ask Yourself Before You Buy Your Next ATV Sprayer

Are you in the market for a 12 Volt All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) sprayer for your farm? Ask yourself these 3 questions first.

3 questions to ask yourself before you next buy ATV spraying equipment:

1. “What Tank Size Do I Need?”

ATV sprayers usually have 30, 50 or 100 litre tanks,  so selecting the best size for your purpose is often a case of balancing your requirements with safety.

The Bigger is better theory doesn’t really apply here, as 100 litres (100kg when full) can be bloody tricky to manage as the tank empties and the weight of the liquid moves around.

The most popular tank size is 50 litres, which has the capacity to suit most applications whilst being a safer option by comparison (especially if you have a hilly farm where rolling your ATV could be an issue).

2. “What Mounting Style Is Best For Me?”

When comparing 12 Volt ATV sprayers, you can choose between a moulded or a fitted mounting system.

A moulded sprayer fits to the contour of your bike, and normally has a lower center of gravity (again, great if the risk of rolling is high on your farm). One draw-back of the moulded arrangement however is that it’s more permanent – most farmers will leave a moulded sprayer on their quad bike permanently as it’s a bit of an ordeal to attach and remove it as required.

A fitted sprayer on the other hand is attached to your bike using tie-down straps, so it’s easy to get on and off, thus allowing you to use your quad for other applications when the sprayer isn’t needed.

3. “How Durable Does It Need To Be?”

This really comes down to two things:

  1. How often you’ll be using the sprayer
  2. How long you’d like it to last

The heart of an ATV sprayer is it’s pump, so that’s what really needs to be protected when it comes to durability. If you’re the type of guy (or girl) who thrashes your gear, then look for a sprayer with a hard lid to protect the unit.

That’s my quick overview, but there’s obviously a bit more to it when it comes to getting the right piece of kit for your specific requirements.

If you’d like a hand picking the best ATV sprayer for you, then call me (Mike) on 07 847-7811.

Bertolini 12v Sprayer

Our most popular ATV Sprayer

There are plenty of 12v quad sprayers out there, but the best all-rounder in my opinion is the Bertolini ATV Quad Pro (Model: BAM50-LID)

  • 50 Litre tank
  • Fitted mounting (with tie-downs)
  • Durable Lid (also with storage compartment for tools, clean water etc)

And let’s not forget that most ATV sprayers have a huge range of accessories too (although that might need to be the subject of another article!).

Contact us to talk more about the Bertolini ATV Quad Pro or 12v ATV Sprayers in general, we’re here to help!

Cheers, Mike.
