stainless steel tank
We Have started to
make some of our own tanks, with stainless steel being the most
obvious option enabling us to manufacture to customers individual
size requirements, we have also increased the largest tank size to
1600 litres. Machines fitted with stainless steel tanks will also
have stainless steel inductor hoppers and mud guards.
Not letting the
grass grow under their feet, W. M. Staite Ltd our newly appointed
dealer in Jersey have sold the first of a new range of Frazier
vegetable sprayers, based on an Agribuggy 475 it has four wheel
steering for optimum maneuverability. The transport width was reduced
to two meters to cater for Jerseys narrow roads. The 11.5m wide booms
are fully hydraulic and fold independently for ease of spraying in
confined spaces. This machine also features a 1200 litre stainless
steel tank built to their specific requirements.
We have appointed W.
M. Staite LTD of Oak Farm, St Lawrence, Jersey, JE3 1HU as
Mr Staite is also
the Ford New Holland dealer on the island and can be contacted at the
above address or telephone 01534 863511 / Fax 01534 865162.
We have now become
the northern area dealers for Landquip Sprayers. We have been fitting
their aluminium booms on our machines for a number of years now and
already stock many of the spare parts. This, of course, made it a
natural choice to add to our ever expanding range of products.
New Hercules high
output runway de-icer
development from the Frazier fold is due for delivery to Leeds
Bradford International Airport in October to head up its existing
range of Frazier runway de-icers. The sprayer unit is built on an
articulated trailer that can be towed by any conventional tractor
unit. The boom is fitted with twin spray lines and the system
configured so that either, or both, lines can be operated at the same
time to provide a wide variation of application rates without having
to alter nozzles or or working pressure. The sprayer unit can also be
built on to either a four wheel trailer or rigid lorry unit. Outputs
of up to 500 l/ha can be applied at speeds of up to 20 mph!
New trailed sprayer
We are now about
to venture into other new, specialist, markets having just received
an order for a giant, 10,000 litre. 24m trailed sprayer! - Watch this space.
sales on the increase
introduction of the Stealth last year, sales have increased steadily
and we have just had a sudden rush on orders - quite unusual for the
time of year but very pleasing of course! So we are now looking at
ways of increasing production to cope with the unexpected demand and
are likely to be increasing the work force both on the fabrication
side and in the fitting shops over the next few weeks.
liquid fertilizer bowsers
We are currently
developing a range of bowsers, with
stainless steel tanks, that are suitable for water and liquid
fertiliser. They are fitted with a chemical storage cabinet, high
output pump unit and sprung axles.
After 7 years of
hard use the factory floors were getting a bit messy so we've had a
good tidy up, clear out and new lick of floor paint.
A tidy up outside
was also overdue so we've had a clean up out there too and
re-organised the car park to give us lots more space for visitors.
We now have a new
and permanent Web site - the URL is http://www.frazier.co.uk
and new e-mail address - firstname.lastname@example.org
Fraz on floppy
new programme - Fraz.exe is now available on floppy disk. It is an
exact copy of this web site compressed into an executable file that
will run on Windows 3.x, Windows 95, and NT. It will run on any
reasonable spec computer with a 256 colour display and hard drive. It
comes with its own browser - very similar to any other web browser,
and a simple installation routine. If the site continues growing at
the current rate then we also hope to make it available on CD. Watch
New super LP
tyre for Stealth
The latest new
tyre option for the Stealth is the 600/50-22.5.
This is a big, expensive tyre but the performance is so good it
reduces the ground pressure to even that of our lightest machines!
New press brake
mid March, our new Rico 60T pressbrake will speed up production and
improve the fold quality of sheet metal used in the manufacture of
the new Stealth cab.
We take the
decision to join the electronic revolution and develop our own
internet site, as an experiment initially. Once through the initial
learning curve, and with the right software, we decide to do it
properly - and this is the result! All we need now is a permanent
site and World Wide Web domain name - Should be coming soon.
mode for four wheel steering
This feature is
now being incorporated into all new four wheel steer systems and old
systems can be updated if required. When selected the system will
switch from 2WS to 4WS automatically as the sprayer is switched on
and off for ease of steering down the field and for optimum turning
on the headlands.
The final phase of
our factory extension is now complete with the completion of the new
sales office/meeting room. We are now in a much better position to
receive visitors and to do training courses etc.
We welcome Stuart
Child to the new position of Sales Manager. He has been with the
company for several years, originally as a sprayer operator and more
recently has taken on the responsibility of delivering machines and
instructing in their use. He has also been helping out with shows in
1996 and has looked after on-farm demonstrations. He knows the
product very well, not only from the technical point of view but also
from the practical side. We wish him well!
the new sales office
The Stealth HC
HC is the latest addition to the Frazier range and is a mid-range,
high-clearance, sprayer, designed for high speed work and operator
comfort. Its low ground pressure capability also ensures it can be
used throughout the year.
Introduced at the
shows last year, the prototype has been undergoing exhaustive tests
on our contracting division and has so-far won a big thumbs-up! We
are now happy that it will do any job required of it and are ready to
release it for sale. Please check it out!
