Compact self-propelled (SP) sprayers are nothing new but they’ve kept a low profile on many markets. A low capacity compact SP may seem a bit over the top for smaller mixed farm holdings, but once you have a closer look at some of the compact units available on the Australian market they do start to make some sense.

The Hardi Presidio is just one example of a relatively simple machine that makes sense in the right application. Clearly a machine like this is a no brainer for high value crops and row crops that see quite a bit of chemical application throughout the crop cycle.

The little red machine has also seen some Aussie action on pyrethrum and poppy crops as well. Roles like these call for a delicate touch and a lithe footprint. But the Presidio also has some potential for mixed farm roles where its compact size and nimble turning circle may come in handy.
