Miller’s popular front mounted boom Nitro self-propelled sprayer has had a facelift.
The new Miller Nitro 6333 sprayer brings significant enhancements to the existing 5333 model, which has accounted for about 60 per cent of Miller sprayer sales nationally.
The 6333 adds to the lineup in the 6000 series joining the 6365 launched last year.
Jon Bent from Australian distributor, McIntosh Distribution, said the new sprayer came with all the features of the latest 6000 Series.
“The smaller Miller 5240 models will continue into the future, but the larger chassis machines will be upgraded to the 6000 Series,’’ Mr Bent said.
Heading the features list is an innovative drive train system that allows maximum power with minimum fuel consumption.
It has shown up to a 30 per cent reduction in fuel use compared with equivalent-sized machines.
“It means faster responses to speed changes through more efficient transfer of power to the ground, even at lower engine RPM,’’ Mr Bent said.
“The variable displacement hydrostatic drive system with traction control is similar to the 6365, but just a slightly different size.’’
The 6333 Miller Nitro sprayer is powered by an 8.3-litre, 245 kilowatt Cummins Tier III engine and offers 4500, 5300 and 6100 litre main tank options.
It comes with Miller’s standard front-mounted truss booms of up to 40.5 metres, or the option of a Miller’s Spray-Air truss boom up to 36m.
The Spray-Air system allows for more targeted chemical application through air-assist and air-atomisation technology, forming one powerful spray nozzle system.
Farmers have fingertip control of the droplet size and speed of the air delivery for any spraying application.
According to Miller, demonstrations comparing Spray-Air with conventional systems have shown improved performance in all instances, regardless of the application challenge.
Optional Ultraflow swather hydraulics is also available with the 6333 Miller Nitro, allowing swather functions up to a size of 12.6m.
Other popular features of the Miller Nitro sprayers have been retained, such as the high underframe clearance, Hydralink suspension and the Quick-Attach system.
The new Miller Nitro 6333 sprayer is expected to be available later this month from McIntosh Distribution.
The company said limited stocks of remaining 5333 sprayers were “available at competitive prices”.
