New high precision smart sprayer joins machinery range

Burdens has introduced a new product to its Specialist Vegetable Machinery division – the Ecorobotix ARA high precision smart sprayer.

The new machine (pictured) can deliver ultra-high precision spraying of herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, or liquid fertiliser, reducing plant protection products by up to 95%, Burdens says. The machine uses 156 adjustable spray nozzles in the 6m width of the machine to target plants or weeds at a speed of up to 7km/h with the ability to cover 96ha in 24 hours. 

Spray accuracy is achieved by a vision system and AI technology which identifies the plants and the weeds. The machine is designed to deliver increased profitability through better crop yields and lower volume/costs of plant protection products, the company adds. The machine folds to 2.8m width for transport.

Burdens Specialist Vegetable Machinery division is now two years old and was formed by merging Burdens’ Horticultural and Goodacres businesses together into one department.

It is the importer of the Struik range of potato equipment which includes cultivators for bed preparation and toppers. Toppers are available in two, four, six and eight row configurations. These machines can be front or rear mounted or a combination of both – available as rigid machines with end tow kits or as fully hydraulic folding machines. Most machines in the UK have been supplied with ridge press wheels.

The company is looking for more dealers for this equipment so get in touch directly if you are interested.

Burdens continues to offer potato equipment from Tong Engineering, including the popular Caretaker grader, fitted with the Easyclean soil separator. Other Tong equipment supplied this year includes the Field Loader Pro and Midi Easyfill in potato format with the doorstop belt.

It offers the reliable and high performing Swift Lift range of elevators and conveyors manufactured by Terry Johnson Ltd, close to Burdens in Lincolnshire.

Added this year is the range of robot palletisers from Bradley Engineering. These are available as single or twin pallet machines based on new or reconditioned robot arms, offering as much as 15 tonnes per hour. These are one of the most cost effective stacking solutions on the market for small to medium growers. Options are selectable programme modes and systems to handle cartons or trays.

Contact Burdens directly with any sales, services, or parts enquiries.
