The portable MANKAR® models are ideal for use in areas of dense cultivation, irregular row cultivations, or anywhere where a high degree of flexibility is needed.
Metering is carried out via manual adjustment of the metering valve, depending on the herbicide used. The product travels by gravitational force from the tank to the atomiser via the valve. The atomiser is activated by the push of a button, meaning that spraying is only carried out where and when needed. In order to achieve uniform metering per unit of surface area (e.g. l/ha), the anticipated walking speed must be considered when adjusting the valve and must be held as constant as possible.
Spray widths are available from 12 to 45 cm. On some models, the spray width can be adjusted by rotating the spray hood.
- Very lightweight and therefore less back strain
- Easy to transport
- Well balanced
- Minimises drift and hence risk to nearby cultivated plants, e.g. when spraying flower-beds
- rotatable spray hood (seelcted models)
- One battery charge is sufficient for approx. 8 hrs., so that even a long workday can be covered without a problem
