LONG REACH MANTIS

The Long Reach Mantis® incorporating the Global Spray Head is a unique, patented product to replace hose reel hand spraying. The hydraulic arm can reach out approx. 7 metres, and spray another 3 to 4 metres with the Global Spray Head. The Long Reach Mantis® is suitable for mounting on a tractor (minimum 60-80hp) via front 3-point linkage.

LONG REACH MANTIS®
The Long Reach Mantis® won Best New Invention at Gunnedah Field Day in 2003, and the Weekly Times Elmore Field Day Australian Machine of the Year 2005.

THE GLOBAL SPRAY HEAD
The Spray Head has three independent axis acting like a wrist and arm and is used for fine spot spraying or a general spray pattern. The global spray head can spray a 15 to 20 metre wide swath at 3 to 5 Km/Hr covering large areas economically.

THE MISTER
The Mister sprays 10 to 20 metres giving it exceptional penetration in dense unwanted growth. The four-wheel drive tractor-mounted version is capable of traversing rough slopes to remove unwanted growth from forests such as black berries, gorse, lantana and briars.

MINI BOOM ATTACHMENT
The mini boom attachment is for ditch and embankment spraying. The 5.5 metre boom has independent folding arms to allow spraying of a V ditch or a single batter and can rotate the boom arms at 1 0, 45 or 90 degrees to the direction of travel and still keep the boom perpendicular to the direction of travel.

SCRUB CUTTER OR SAW
The cutting disc with spray attachment is used in agro forestry to chop suckers off and spray the freshly cut stump at the same time. This technique allows enormous savings in chemicals versus traditional sucker foliage spraying.

THE SPRAY DOME
The Spray Dome can be used to protect valuable plants against overspray with a spray head mounted inside the dome.


The Benefits of the Long Reach Mantis® include:

  • Reduced chemical usage; operator concentrates on directing the spray precisely instead of scrambling across terrain
  • Reduction in labour (no winding in and out of hoses)
  • Operator Safety; the operator is removed from the chemical spraying zone
  • Increased operator comfort in adverse weather conditions no need to wear a mask or other protective equipment while working from a filtered air cabin
     

The units have been used for over four seasons of work and the initial model has performed over 4000 hours with minimal downtime with no weld cracking in the most rugged forest conditions.

Patented under Patent No. 6659374 and other patents in the USA, Europe and Australia.
