The new Field-Pro IV-1000 Bestway sprayer offers an economical way for farmers to apply their own chemicals and reduce costs per acre. The sprayer features a 1,000-gal. tank and 60-ft. boom. It covers up to 60 acres/hr. while still being small enough to maneuver in tight spaces, according to Pat Meenen, president of Bestway Sprayer, a division of RHS.
The sprayer boom features a dual breakaway system to protect it from damage and dual parallel lift arms for control and stability. A hydraulic controller lifts and folds the wings, and a toggle switch moves the boom. The chemical induction system allows for both liquid and dry materials to be sprayed. A parallel linkage mounting system lets the unit be lowered for ground-level loading and raised for crop clearance.
