No matter if you have a small residential section or an expansive farm, a sprayer is a necessary tool. The right sprayer will help you apply pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers over your crops, pasture, small vegetable patch or lawn quickly and efficiently.
But when you’re shopping for an agricultural sprayer, there are quite a few variables to consider. You’ll need to look at the amount of land and size of sprayer, what type of equipment you have and how your new sprayer will be attached to your equipment (where required). There are also a variety of sprayer types to consider, based on the task you're wanting to complete. The quality and condition of your current equipment should also be a consideration, as well as the weather, and, of course, what you are spraying. In this blog, we discuss the different variables to make choosing your next agricultural sprayer easy as.
First, let's talk about the basics.
Agricultural sprayers consist of a few simple but necessary parts, the essential parts include the tank, pump and nozzles. The pump draws the liquid mixture from the tank and discharges through spray nozzles, with pressure controls to achieve the desired application rate.
Agricultural sprayers range in size from portable units, such as hand-held compression sprayers, backpacks with spray guns, to self-propelled sprayers, deck-mount sprayers, trailed sprayers and 3-point linkage sprayers that are fixed to a tractor.
