Dedicated Liquid Fertiliser applicator truck, specialising in Liquid urea, Fine Particle Lime/Fert slurrys, and all types of fish/kelp type mixes. We carry Bulk supply of Gibberellic Acid in the truck that can be added to the dissolved Urea.
We operate a four wheel drive Mercedes spray truck with six extra wide tractor grip tyres to minimise ground compaction and give superior traction. Inside the cab there is GPS guidance and mapping system along with computer controlled spraying equipment.
The truck is also fitted with a hiab crane to lift bags of urea/fert which means we dont require the use of a farm tractor.
The 5000 litre stainless steel tank is used only for liquid fertiliser application so there’s no concern about other residues it may contain. It has its own agitation system for quickly dissolving urea, saving time on the job. The spray boom can cover out to 18 metres, though boom-less spraying is an option for steeper areas. The truck tows a trailer with an additional tank for re-filling with water on site as well as carrying any liquid additives and concentrates.
Fertiliser spreading should be a precision operation with the correct amount of nutrients applied exactly when and where they are needed, this is why we have invested in quality machinery and technology for our business Snodgrass Contracting.
