This petrol engine driven sprayer/mister/duster by PADDOCK machinery is perfect for use in the agriculture and farming industry for the dispersion of a range of chemicals, herbicides and insecticides. It's backpack design makes it highly portable and effective over larger areas.
This unit has a range of uses and is easy to master by the professional or home enthusiast. The engine drives a high speed fan, similar to a leaf blower. Some key differences are the pressure from the fan is used to pressurise the solution or powder tank which directs fluid to the adjustable spray nozzle at the end of the unit. Fine droplets are dispersed into the air stream which carry distances of 11m+.
The pressurised tank design of the PADDOCK unit is ideal for people wanting to spray vertically into tree foliage as even with the discharge pipe pointed upwards the solution will still flow. Imitation units struggle operating in this manner and have very limited applications for ground crops only. The PADDOCK mister will discharge over 9m vertically and over 12m horizontally.
Dusting is also possible with this unit as it incorporates a powder gate which drops fine powders and granular products directly into the fan casing. Users can apply up to ~6 kg/min of power or 20 kg/min of granular products onto fields and soils to help establish crops or prepare for farming.
This unit allows the operator to easily adjust the engine speed and chemical flow from the hand controls without stopping and removing the unit from their back. Ideal for commercial users targeting specific areas or zones for application.
