Nothing comes close to the Advance for value! It’s loaded with every practical feature the discerning New Zealand farmer requires, it’s built like the local outhouse and nothing compares to the supple ride of the boom design. It’s the perfect trailed sprayer for large cropping operations throughout the country.
“ 100 times better dollar for dollar than any other brand I’ve owned".

“After months in the decision process we cemented on the Advance because of a number of factors. We are impressed with the stability of the 24m boom. We believe this is due to fewer folding sections and less pivot points, boom construction, and the suspension design. Nozzles and hoses are protected within the boom structure, eliminating the possibility of breaking a nozzle or body; it has stainless steel nozzle lines instead of plastic ones. The independent on-board hydraulic system makes connecting to our tractor quick and easy. Since owning it we've also found a number of other key advantages. Low centre of gravity provides stability and safety. The clean bottom means nothing hanging underneath is catching on our crop. In the overall the Advance 3000 has improved our cropping operation, increased our application consistently and made our whole spraying job a heck of a lot easier.”

PUMP – Reliable maintenance free piston pump. The pump can be field serviced in 10-20 minutes without removing it from the sprayer. Ceramic sleeves extend service intervals compared to conventional diaphragm pumps. Positive displacement means volume doesn’t alter when pressure increases.
CHASSIS – Built like a truck! The Advance has a high-tensile ‘C’ section chassis that is riveted rather than welded. This allows the chassis to flex without cracking, eliminating common fatigue cracks.
AGITATOR – Unique mechanical agitator. Can handle liquid fertilisers with ease, and takes less power to mix the solution more thoroughly. The Advance has the best of both worlds: mechanical and re-circulation agitation.
HYDRAULICS – Totally self contained hydraulic system. Operated electrically from the cab. Makes hooking up simple and easy! No chance of getting the hoses around the wrong way – just back the tractor up, connect the PTO and the 2 cables and go.
BOOM – Our booms are second to none and are built to last! Built with a huge triple pipe design for massive strength. Unique hydraulic pivot design holds the boom tightly together eliminating any slop within the folding sections. The partial folding feature allows you to spray at either 13 metres or 24 metres. 3D breakaway section protects your boom from unnecessary damage when hitting a fence. Wing lift is standard. Boom is self levelling to follow contours.With a factory rated operating speed of 30km/h these sprayers can handle the tough New Zealand conditions with ease.
ALUMINIUM END SECTIONS – Light, robust and riveted. Eliminates the common aluminium crack problem! Light weight eliminates unnecessary inertia at the end of the boom, providing an even application.
SUSPENSION – The Advance has superior suspension. It uses a combination of coil springs, hydraulic accumulators, rubber cushions and hydraulic dampeners to provide an extremely supple ride. The triple suspension system includes individual yaw dampening, dual vertical suspension and wing dampened suspension. Eliminates excessive side loading on both sprayer and tractor. Eliminates shock damage and provides the most consistent application. In transport mode the boom is suspended giving you added peace of mind.
TANK – Unlike others the tanks are blow moulded. This far superior technique makes an incredibly strong, last longer and UV safe tank. Specially designed to keep weight balanced between tractor and sprayer, for a lower centre of gravity. Deep sump for fully emptying even on steep terrain. Smooth internal shape to reduce residues when cleaning which also assists the agitation for a thorough solution mix.
