Dutch Sprayer Brings New Features to North American Sprayer Line-Up

Canada’s Farm Progress Show had an international sprayer in its line-up of ag equipment this year. For many farmers, it was their first chance to see Agrifac’s Condor, manufactured in the Netherlands.

Agrifac’s Rob Blijdorp was on the grounds to field questions, explaining some of the high clearance sprayer’s unique features. In the interview below, Blijdorp takes Kelvin Heppner on a tour of the machine, first directing him to a model of the sprayer’s StabiloPlus chassis in action.

“The first benefit with the walking-beam concept: we have a 50/50 weight distribution on our machine,” he said, noting the chassis design limits forward/backward movement of the booms. This stability allows AgriFac to reach boom widths of 150 feet. But that’s not all the booms have to offer.

“We have a full circulation system, meaning that the liquid will always flow through the boom, so you will have no sink-down of chemicals — you always have a perfect mix.”

The sprayer pump is designed to minimize the amount of chemical left in the system when the tank is empty, reducing waste and making cleanout easier, explains Blijdorp. You also don’t have to prime the booms, which, along with the dedicated fill pump (it can fill the 2100 U.S. gallon tank in just seven minutes), saves valuable time.

The Condor also comes equipped with under-cab cameras, an adjustable track width, and an impressive view, with the cab extending out in front of the machine.
