For ease of operation the booms are transported on the reel and a fixed hydraulic lift system has been developed to transport the booms safely.
All models give accurate and uniform water distribution under a wide range of conditions, with a controlled droplet size to match the crop.
The booms operate at low pressure (0.6 - 4 bar) and can apply from 14 to 50 cubic metres per hour.
Uniform water application gives far more even crop growth compared to raingun systems.
Using a Briggs boom can reduce water consumption by 20% compared with rainguns.
High flow rates allow faster retraction enabling large areas to be covered in less time.
Controlled droplet size reduces soil damage. Large droplets can be selected to reduce drift while fine droplets can be used to minimise damage to very delicate crops.
Reduced impact from small droplets also reduces soil capping and soil erosion.
Low pressure operation helps reduce pumping costs and puts less strain on the pipeline.
