Spraying no longer a chore with the new LM Series and M Boom

For Ryan spraying was a testing job until he bought the new BA LM Series with M Boom.

Te Aroha based dairy farmer, Ryan Cannell had come to the end of his patience with his current sprayer, so after a hard day spraying enough was enough and it was time to get that new sprayer, he knew he needed. 

Ryan had outgrown his current sprayer, which comprised various parts including a 400 Litre Bertolini tank and small boom, so spraying was becoming a real chore.  It was taking too long, the small tractor it was fitted to was exposed and uncomfortable, and the small tank meant he had to go back and refill multiple times. Ryan said: “I knew I needed to upgrade and was originally looking at BA’s LS Series because I could put it on my main tractor, and it would cut my spraying time significantly, but the cost was more than I was willing to spend.” 

However, one day whilst out spraying getting increasingly frustrated, Ryan called Todd from his local BA Dealer, Piako Morrinsville.  “I’d had enough” continued Ryan, “so I called Todd to see what he could do. He told me to come and check out the new LM 1150 Litre Linkage Sprayer from BA, so I did.” 

Ryan said: “I’m spraying out crops and carrying out general pasture renovation over winter, but my previous set up just wasn’t built for that.  When I saw the LM in the yard, I knew it was exactly what I needed.” 

The LM Series with M Boom has everything Ryan needs to get his spraying done safely and efficiently. “There are so many elements to the LM Series that mean I can sit back and spray from the comfort of my tractor cab – The only thing I need to get out for is to open the gate. 

“What you get for the price is incredible, especially given the 12 Metre M Boom is fully hydraulic and has the strength and resilience farmers have come to expect from a BA sprayer. We do have rolling terrain in parts and the wing lift means I can spray to the contour of the land easily, ensuring greater spray coverage too. 

“Spraying is no longer a chore, the simplicity, the extra capacity, and fully hydraulic boom with wing lift means I’ve halved my time in the paddock so I can spend that time doing other jobs around the farm. I love it.”
