Loads of capacity and loads of spec are not every farmer’s cuppa when it comes to updating the business’s sprayer. Vicon’s David Furber says there are still many mixed farming operations that want a modern sprayer that complies with the latest regulations, but prefer to stick with 12m tramlines and avoid too much high-tech sophistication. “Which is why we’re introducing the iXter A range of mounted models — for mixed farms with a relatively light spraying workload,” he adds. The ‘A’ line is available with aluminium booms (12-15m) or HC steel booms (18-21m) and tank sizes of 800, 1,000 or 1,200 litres. Price of a 12m/800-litre model with manual pressure control starts from £13,449.
