New fertiliser truck for Maitland

New fertiliser truck for Maitland

The surfaces at the sporting fields and parks across Maitland are looking good thanks to Council’s new self propelled boom sprayer.

The new machine is being used all over the city and is more accurate and efficient than anything Council has used in the past.

The boom is six metres wide and is computer controlled, meaning the spraying is far more targeted than anything that’s been used in the past. It is also purpose built and uses the latest technology to spray pesticides and fertilisers in the most efficient way so the amount of spray wasted on the areas is also at an all time low.
