Responding to users’ feedback on the previous model – and driven to improve operation and safety in the field – BA Pumps and Sprayers has placed significant research and development into its new TSX 400 trailed sprayer.

Meeting a design brief that called for ease of use and a substantially lower centre of gravity, a new low profile 400 litre UV stable polyethylene tank addresses the latter and is said to help eliminate rollovers. 

As part of the tank design, the layout incorporates a large suction well, integrated handwash and a calibration strip with a sight glass. 

The oversize steel frame is manufactured from 75mm x 40mm RHS and full hot dip galvanized to ensure a long service life. Meanwhile, the removeable drawbar makes for easy storage. The 22-11x 8 knobbly tyres are fitted to help with grip and lateral stability.

Users can choose from four basic models that offer an electrically-powered Shurflo pump, or alternatively Honda GX160 engines mated to Bertolini POLY or PA Series pumps. 

Standard fitments include reels and spot spray guns with 30 or 50 metre capacities. 

A wide range of accessories will allow users to customise the base units to suit individual needs, with a choice of XP 10, 20 and 25 boom jet kits and 3, 4.5 and 6.0 metre spray booms. 

A range of switching and control units allow use from the ATV, while an optional bull bar is designed to protect the engine and pump assemblies.
