It has been just over a year since Promax partnered with Australian-owned Rapid Spray to bring an industry-leading range of spot, Utility Task Vehicle (UTV) and field sprayers to New Zealand. Since then there’s been some great developments in spray equipment at Rapid Spray and, with spring’s arrival, it’s time to make sure you’re up-to-date with the latest spray gear.
The spray range was originally launched mid-2017 at the National Fieldays at Mystery Creek. The Promax partnership with Rapid Spray aimed to bring Australia’s favourite spot sprayers and The Buddy Smart Reel to New Zealand farmers and contractors with an eye for quality and reliability.
Rapid Spray Marketing and Sales Manager, Russell Firth, said Rapid Spray’s unique range of Australian-made spot sprayers, UTV sprayers and remote-control hose reel systems are ideally suited to New Zealand farmers tackling invasive weeds such as gorse in hill country. “With many farmers turning to UTVs for daily spraying, the Rapid Spray range provides superior performance and the time-saving benefits of smart, compact, remote-controlled hose reels that have traditionally been available only to contractors,” said Russell.
Russell says the Rapid Spray range offers everything from small mower trailers through to large field sprayers suitable for contractors working the paddocks every day. “The range is packed full of new and innovative products plus some of our bestsellers, all designed to save you time, effort and money - there really is something for everyone.”
New Zealand’s top seller over the past year has been the smaller Spot Ranger Sprayers, which come in two handy sizes; 60 litre (L) or 95L. The Australian-made 12-volt (V) spot sprayer is designed for spray applications including herbicides, pesticides and fungicides. The Spot Rangers are easy to use and feature a reliable 8.3 litres per minute (LPM), 60 pounds per square inch (psi), 12 volt Delevan pump imported from the United States. Complete with a regulator and gauge, the Spot Ranger is designed for accuracy and reducing the risks of over-spraying and wasted chemicals.
Other top sellers include the super quiet and versatile 250L UTV Spray Marshal Sprayer and the Buddy Smart Reels. These Smart Reels are time-savers and come in three lengths; 50 metres (m), 100m or 150m. They’re compact, user-friendly, maintenance-free and can save up to 37 percent of your spraying time thanks to the radio-controlled hose reel rewind. The 250L Spray Marshal sprayer is fitted with a 7.5LPM 100psi Delaven pump and has the option of the standard 30m manual hose reel or can be upgraded to any one of the Buddy Smart Reels. This sprayer is perfect for use in areas where noise sensitivity is an issue.
