Product review: Smithco sprayers

By Alistair March 15, 2024 10:09

When it comes to accuracy, precision and productivity in spray application, Smithco sprayers are among the best in the business. This is a result of a long-term partnership with TeeJet Technologies and their Dyna-Jet pulse-width modulation advanced rate control and dual nozzle system. This provides the ultimate control over spraying speed, pressure and droplet size. Spraying is consistent across any area regardless of terrain, shape or size of the surface area.

Smithco’s Star Command system feature drift control, an immensely important and precision function, which allows the spray tech to select the droplet size on the move. Droplet sizes range from fine, medium, course, and very course and can differ between applications. If required, a larger droplet size can be specified to control the drift and still maintain the correct rate.

At the forefront of GPS-guided sprayer technology, Smithco’s range of Spray Star equipment vastly improves the quality and accuracy that turf managers are looking for. The result is an improvement in playing conditions and resources (fertiliser, wetting agents, growth inhibitors etc.) can be conserved, helping to save money over the longer term.

GPS-guided sprayers are a significant development because they greatly reduce the risk of human error during spray applications. Mistakes waste product and time and have the potential to cause serious turf problems. Smithco sprayers eliminate these issues because each individual nozzle is controlled by a computer that confines applications to desired areas and prevents overlaps or under-spraying.
