Field Sprayer Now Follows Field Contour Automatically

Field Sprayer Now Follows Field Contour Automatically

Bestway's Autoglide monitors ground-to-sprayer distance and adjusts on the go.

Ultrasonic range sensors mounted on Bestway's Field PRO IV sprayer keep the sprayer booms adjusted automatically during operation to maintain sprayer to ground height and calibrated application rates.

The new AutoGlide system delivers very consistent spray patterns, better coverage and better drift control by maintaining a set distance from nozzle to crop canopy or ground.

AutoGlide uses the sprayers existing electric-over-hydraulic controls so there are no extra hydraulic components to add, making it the simplest boom height control system to install.

Bestway offers an automatic boom height system that monitors sprayer height over the field and corrects on-the-go to keep application uniform.

A compact in-cab controller with a simple menu allows engaging and disengaging the automatic mode as well as provides for adjusting boom height on the go.

AutoGlide comes in 2, 3, 4 and 5 sensor models to fit most boom sizes and terrain.
