Landquip has been building sprayers since 1989, equipped with its trademark Alu-Light aluminium booms supplied by Pommier. Throughout that time, its range has continued to evolve. Current offerings include mounted, trailed and self-propelled sprayers – the latter using a Househam skid unit as the starting point (see panel). But the firm says it is demand for increasingly more sophisticated tractor-mounted models that has driven the development of its new Condor model.
Based on the firm’s 1,500-litre Cropmaster sprayer chassis, this new version is packed to the gunwales with specification. It might use the same frame as the Cropmaster, but that is where the similarities end. Condor gets a choice of tank capacities and the use of a vertically folding, aluminium boom spanning working widths from 12-30m. Visitors to Lamma 2016 might also get to see a 32m version.
