It may come as a surprise to some farmers, but these models, a 4000 litre tank and a 28m (90ft) boom, have been used in Italy for the past five years, mainly in tramline cropping.

In WA, bigger tanks are now in demand as farmers seek to push productivity parameters during the relatively short spraying windows available during the season.

The Compact comes with hydraulic lift and fold with airbag suspension on the boom and a 3.5m parallelogram lift.

The single axle chassis is fitted out with 18.4 x 38 lug tyres while the drawbar is adjustable.

Standard equipment includes a MicroTrak MT9000 controller, which is GPS-compatible for variable rate application.

Stored plumbing also is a feature with a pull-up side panel providing easy access to lines and the pull-down granular chemical mixing chamber.

According to Croplands state manager John Griffiths, the new model provides "another market fit" for the company.

"Croplands has the largest range of sprayers in Australia catering from small vineyard models through horticulture to broadacre farming," he said. "We also have the largest spraying component range."

Mr Griffiths said the company had consolidated its operations in WA with its new base at Northam and has a 20-strong dealer network throughout the state.

"We have a growing market share and with more new models to be released in the near future we are signalling that we are here for the long term."
