For years, pulse width modulated (PWM) control systems were limited to self-propelled sprayers. Now, the same technology can be implemented easily on pull-type sprayers and fertilizer applicators, thanks to four new pump models with integrated PWM control valves from Ace Pump Corp. The new lineup of Ace pumps with integrated PWM control valves are designed for use on any closed-center hydraulic system. The pump and valve combination provides quick rate changes for constant and variable-rate applications. No bypass circuit is needed to route excess flow back to the tank, thus preventing excessive heat and foaming caused by large bypass flows. The pumps run only as fast as necessary to minimize horsepower requirements, as well as wear and tear on the pump and other system components.
All CDS-John Blue 2-, 3- and 4-inch centrifugal pumps have been improved, resulting in higher flow rates of 200, 400 and 560 GPM, respectively. All CDS-John Blue Centrifugal pumps are double wet seal — meaning these pumps can be run dry without seal failure — and they are all backed by a 2-year, unconditional factory warranty. Our pumps incorporate patent-pending, 2-in-1 inlet designs, as well as the latest O-ring technology, to simplify pump maintenance. They are the most robust, dependable transfer pump on the market today and are guaranteed to do the job!

Get more from your self-propelled sprayer. The 360 Y-DROP® turns your sprayer into a late-season nitrogen application system. That means you can extend the value of your sprayer and get the yield-boosting advantages that come from improved nitrogen timing and placement. Corn uses 75% of its nitrogen after V11. 360 Y-DROP allows you to delay your final application to match the peak use period. Plus, by applying later, you can adjust application rates to match the needs of the corn plant — based on the weather impact of your field's nitrate levels. It’s a simple retrofit to your sprayer.
The new FB3 pumps comes in 8 different configurations to meet the needs of the professional lawn, turf, deicing, roof cleaning and dust suppression markets. This pump is available in both demand and bypass operation, with threaded or Quick Attach ports. Delavan has a complete line of fittings for the Quick Attach ports, in straight and elbow models, and in ½- and ¾-inch hose barb sizes. The FB3 pump has been re-engineered for longer diaphragm life, less amp draw and heat, reliable performance and longer pump life. Delavan continues to innovate the heavy-duty 12V market with new products, meeting customers’ demanding requirements for reliability and performance.
The Gearmore Venturi Air Boom Sprayers were developed for vegetable crops that require total plant coverage. Our turbine fan produces high-speed air up to 400 mph, which is required to obtain 20-40 mph at each outlet. The air is passed through venturi tubes with the introduction of liquid, which is sheared into extremely fine (50 micron) fog-size droplets. The air/liquid movement allows the chemical to completely cover the vegetation, especially the underside of leaves. The booms raise and lower hydraulically for different crop heights, independent of the sprayer. Booms also have breakaway and hydraulic fold-away systems. These sprayers have 150-gallon tanks with boom lengths of 27 and 40 feet.
Pacer’s ‘S’ and ‘T’ series self-priming transfer pumps are ideal for filling spray tanks, nurse tanks, off-loading and general transfer of fertilizer, herbicides and many other agricultural chemicals. The pumps are available in models powered by gasoline engine, diesel engine, electric motor or hydraulic motor. They have flow rates as high as 380 gpm, depending on the model chosen. Our exclusive PROTEK engine protection system, available on ‘S’ series engine-driven pumps, separates the pump from the engine and protects the engine in the event of seal failure. Constructed of glass-reinforced polyester thermoplastic, EPDM elastomers for maximum chemical resistance and stainless-steel fasteners.
The Kuri Tec® Truespray™ hose has been proven to reduce unwanted herbicide carryover damage. Even after repeated flushing, other spray hoses — rubber, PVC and PVC/Polyurethane constructions — can retain significant amounts of herbicide residue buildup long after use. During re-use, this buildup can unexpectedly leach out of the hose, causing costly crop damage and subsequent yield loss — even years later! The Kuri Tec® Truespray™ hose features a permeation-resistant inner liner, ensuring your herbicides and pesticides wind up where you want them — on the field. Scientific studies have shown that the Truespray™ hose provides superior clean-out characteristics vs. other hoses now used. Read the Weed Science Society of America 2017 report.
Sponge Weed Wipers are effective tools used to battle resistant weeds like pigweed, marestail, ragweed and waterhemp by applying Gramoxone (Paraquat) at the labeled 50% rate. Smucker sponge wiper kits easily attach to any size boom and plumb directly to TeeJet nozzle bodies. The mounting brackets make converting from a sprayer to a wiper very quick. The unique heavy-duty sponges apply more product, drift-free, directly to the target weeds and get fantastic results for less than $1 per acre.
