Why have boom control?

To make the most of modern design nozzles and chemicals they need to be sprayed from the correct height to achieve the optimum spray pattern and coverage. Weather you have contour or variable geometry we can install boom height to control to help you achieve a more consistent height and also reduce the need to drive looking backwards all the time, so reduce operator fatigue.

Solutions

We are very pleased to say we are a dealer and installer of Greentronics RiteHeight control system, this is a stand alone system that can be retrofitted to any spray boom. This system can have a stand alone controller or can be integrated via ISObus to several control terminals already fitted to your machine.
