The all-new Goldacres TriTech 48 metre boom is a product of two years development on top of 40 years boom manufacturing experience.
The result is a very large boom with exceptional strength.
The TriTech boom has a lightweight trussed construction of steel and aluminium and hydraulics for precise yaw and breakaway control.
It also has a frame design that gives operators the ability to use a variety of nozzle combinations.
The design of the boom gives the option to work with three different spray widths.
With all sections open the total working width is 48m.
With the outer section folded back, the working width is 36m, and with the midsection folded back the working width is 20m.
The TriTech boom’s construction consists of mild steel on inner wings with aluminium on the middle, outer and breakaway sections.
This provides strength where needed and weight savings as required.
A deep and wide boom truss structure reduces stresses while increasing overall strength.
The outer wings feature a unique hydraulic break back and break forward function to help fight yaw forces on the boom.
This also provides security in the chance of a boom collision.
While using the boom in the folded 20m position the middle wing a hydraulic latch secures the outer and inner wing for increased boom rigidity and longevity.
The inner wings also feature forward and rearward hydraulic dampening as well as full yaw control.
Another clever design feature of the 48m TriTech boom is the single spray bar that puts all spray nozzles in perfect alignment.
It allows virtually any nozzle combination or configuration to be mounted on the boom.
The plumbing on the boom is increased to 2.5cm poly tubing, which reduces pressure drop and provides more even nozzle flow rates.
The 48m Tritech boom is available on the G8 Super Cruiser and now the 8500L Prairie Pro for operators looking for a large capacity in either self propelled or trailing sprayers.
