The ideal trailed sprayer for farmers wanting to apply liquid fertiliser, and general spraying tasks on the farm. With plenty of capacity to get the job done quick, and a tough boom that handles the pace with ease.
“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. This 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.
AGITATOR – Unique mechanical agitator. Can handle liquid fertilisers with ease, and takes less power to mix the solution more thoroughly and is perfect for applying dissolved Urea. The Columbia has the best of both worlds: mechanical and re-circulation agitation.
QUICK HOOK UP – Trailed sprayer, hooking up is simple and easy! Just back the tractor up, connect the PTO shaft, plug in the hoses, cable and drawbar pin and away you go. This makes life a breeze when you have one tractor and need to use it for other task, yet allows you to apply following rotation of stock making your fertiliser application much more effective
BOOM – Our booms are second to none and are built to last! Built with a huge section design for massive strength. Unique cable folding design holds the boom tightly together and allows the boom to flex in the rugged terrain eliminating unnecessary stress on the structure. Breakaway section protects your boom from unnecessary damage when hitting a fence. Wing lift is standard. Boom is self leveling to follow contours.
SUSPENSION – The Columbia has superior suspension. Uses a combination of coil springs, rubber cushions and hydraulic dampeners to provide an extremely supple ride. The triple suspension system includes yaw dampening, vertical suspension and individual wing dampened suspension. Eliminates shock damage and provides the most consistent application.
TANK – Unlike others these tanks are blow molded. 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.
The nozzles are protected by the boom structure from accidental knocks, which reduces downtime if you were to hit an obstacle.
The Columbia has full boom wing lift making contour following a breeze.
The boom incorporates hydraulic boom dampeners to keep it floating smoothly.
Inline section filters remove any particles that are likely to block up nozzles reducing downtime and the need to clean out each nozzle.
A large suction filter reduces chance of pump damage.
The mechanical agitator is unbeatable when it comes to liquid fertiliser. It keeps the mixture thoroughly mixed.
Standard the Columbia comes with 3 section Electric controls.
Reliable and proven Jacto pump. 150l/min for generous flow.
