Kent Tisdall of Macraes Flat purchased a Hustler Genius Sprayer last September and is very happy with the end result. His previous spray unit was a truck which he operated as a business. Since purchasing the ‘Genius’ he has sprayed 200ha on rolling country around 12km/hr. Kent is mainly spraying roundup with Granstar & Verstill to help combat the clover.
The 1000l tank with 12m fully hydraulic folding boom & Raven GPS is going well. “It is very simple and easy to use – The GPS is easy to set up & simple to follow, I have also used it for spreading fertiliser,” says Kent. “The induction hopper is great – saves you lugging chemical containers to the top of the sprayer!”
Kent uses a JD6930 155HP tractor for his spray work. “The boom seems good and sturdy and the self-levelling follows the contour well. The boom fold-up is excellent especially around the rocks in here, it allows you to spray at 9m if need be,” reports Kent. “The Auto rate is good, maintaining the application rate well”.
