Australian Pump Industries have announced the release of their new Spraymaster Kappa 43 spot sprayer. The company expects strong demand for this versatile pump for spring weed spraying and fire control.
“The Spraymaster really is an agricultural all-rounder,” said Aussie Pumps’ Pat Woodward. “Whether you’re looking for spot spraying lantana, sheep jetting, machinery wash down or even fire fighting, this is the one pump every farmer must have.” he claimed.
The “heart” of the Aussie Spraymaster is an Italian made Udor diaphragm pump. Udor is one of the world’s biggest manufacturers of high pressure diaphragm style pumps. Their reputation for quality has seen continued growth over the last four years.
Australian Pump’s innovative use of positive displacement spray pumps has broadened the scope of their use. The company has successfully applied this technology to high pressure applications impossible for conventional self-priming pumps, for example, hydrostatic testers and fire fighting.
The Spraymaster series can deliver flows from eight litres per minute to 153 litres per minute. Pressures are from 20 to 50 bar. The pumps will self-prime up to 1.5 metres allowing priming from ponds, tanks or cisterns.
A galvanised skid frame is standard. This is designed with integrated handles for ease of lifting. A wheeled trolley is optional.
“Our Honda powered kits start off with 25 bar, 8 lpm units for “blockies” and go right up to big 125 lpm, 40 bar rigs capable of running three or four guns,” said Woodward. “The Spraymaster is also available in a great machinery wash down configuration.” he added.
The hose reel with 75m of high pressure hose is an option that offers even more versatility. The extra length facilitates big wash jobs like combines or cotton pickers. Its high flow and high pressure performance makes for extra fast wash down and contaminant control.
“We see the Spraymaster as our most versatile pump yet,” said Woodward. “No other farm pump can cover that much ground,” he stated.
Aussie Pumps use genuine Honda engines with a three year warranty. Yanmar diesel and hydraulic drive versions are also available.
Aussie Spraymaster is available in configurations suitable for high pressure transfer, misting, spraying and even livestock wash down.
“It doesn’t matter whether you’ve got pasture or livestock, you’ll find a use for your Spraymaster,” said Woodward. “It seems farmers have discovered a new trick every time I talk to them!”
