July 1999

RDS Pro Series

The recently introduced RDS Pro series automatic sprayer controller is now fitted as standard on all the Phantom/Stealth models (see June news below). It combines some of the functions of previous monitors such as PTO/shaft speeds, overspeed and four wheel steer warnings with all the functions of RDS's previous sprayer controller - the Delta 3. A computer simulation is now available for download

RTT ATV update

The RTT Pioneer all-terrain vehicle is nearing completion of the final testing process and will soon be put into production. (also see Whats new - May 98) The latest tests have been carried out in some fairly extreme conditions in a quarry whilst carrying a 1.5 tonne payload - It was extremely succesful and it proved its all-terrain capability beyond all expectations. Over 1,000 miles have now been clocked up both on and off the road. We also now have our own off-road course next to the factory where we are putting it through its paces on a daily basis - please give us a call if you wish to arrange a test drive.

Instrumentation and cab update

Improvements for this autumn include a new fully adjustable steering column for both the Stealth and Phantom models, a new fully adjustable seat and new instrumentation.

Integrated within the column is a new instrument and warning light cluster and switches for wipe,wash, lights and indicators etc. The analogue instrumentation is much clearer to read than the previous digital instruments and all the important information is visible at the same time.

The latest RDS Pro series instrument is used for automatic control of the sprayer and incorporates tachometers for up to two PTO speeds. A revised sprayer control panel is fitted with sealed switches and manual pressure override.

The update makes a significant improvement to the ergonomics and because the column can be pushed well forwards out of the way makes cab access much easier.

Sprayline purging system

To keep up with the latest environmental demands we have now developed our own sprayline purging system. The system allows the operator to purge the spray lines to get rid of air and water. As soon as the sprayer is switched on there is chemical along the full length of the boom and spraying can be started straight away. The system also allows the operator to wash the lines out with clean water from the onboard tank without having to empty the main tank and without having to spray chemical out onto the ground.

The purge system is controlled by a single lever with it only taking 30 seconds to purge the lines once the sprayer has been filled.

Airtec Sprayers for Jersey

We have recently delivered two new Phantom TDIs to the Island of Jersey fitted with Airtec spraying systems. They will be primarily used for spraying Jersey's main crop - potatoes. The machines were customised to suit the customers needs with the main requirements being that they had to be very manoevrable but with an overall width of no more than 1.8M - A tall order but we managed it by fitting four wheel steering, a modified Gambetti boom and 9.5 x 28 intermediate wheels.

Gambetti Sprayers

We have recently become distibutors for the Gambetti range of tractor mounted and trailed sprayers in Yorshire and North Lincolnshire. We have a lot of experience with the booms in particular on these sprayers - we have been using them on our own demounts for many years now. The components used on the units are also well known to us with many of the parts already being carried in stock.
Some stock machines should be arriving shortly and we will aim to get all the details and specifications on to the web site over the next few months. - Watch this space!

February 1999

New Heavy duty axle available

Latest option on the Phantom and Stealth TDIs is a new heavy duty axle. The new axle lowers the machines overall gearing with the addition of an epicyclic hub reduction unit. This reduces the torque and stress in the whole transmission system, thereby enhancing durability.

Lamma show success

Not only were we very pleased with the response at the Lamma show at Newark this year but we were also very pleased to be awarded with one of the best new product awards for the new Phantom TDI sprayer and also an award for the best supporting stand!

We have a tremendous amount of interest with our latest machine at the moment with an order book now an almost embarrassing 15 weeks long. The TDI engine, automatic gearbox and the new 2,000 litre option has got things off to a cracking start for 1999 after a steady year overall in 1998 - although we must admit the wet winter has helped a little too!
