New Boom Height Control System Is Released

Bestway Inc., a specialty agricultural equipment manufacturer and marketer, recently announced the introduction of the, AutoGlide automatic sprayer boom height control system for most self-propelled, pull type and large 3-point mounted sprayers.

The AutoGlide system uses rugged ultrasonic range sensors mounted on the spray boom to continually monitor and maintain the height of the booms above the ground or crop canopy. The AutoGlide system helps the operator to run more consistent spray patterns, get better coverage and reduce the potential for drift. And by reducing operator fatigue, AutoGlide makes it possible to to cover more acres in a day.

AutoGlide uses the sprayer’s existing electric- over -hydraulic controls so there are no extra hydraulic components to add to the sprayer. This makes AutoGlide relatively simply to install. 

The package features a compact in-cab controller with a simple menu to configure and calibrate, and allows engaging and disengaging in automatic mode as well as adjusting boom height on the go.

AutoGlide is available in 2, 3, 4 and 5 sensor models to fit most boom sizes and terrain.
