Rittenhouse has now introduced it latest addition to it sprayer line-up. This summer Rittenhouse unveiled its brand new 500 Gal. skid mount Tree Sprayer.
The introduction of this Tree Sprayer comes at a timely moment, as Mountain Pine Beetle is becoming a greater concern. This Tree Sprayer features a 500 Gallon, low profile mixing or clean water storage tank. This large tank is perfect for large applications or transferring clean water into the 50 Gallon tank for small batch mixing. This gives the operator the option and makes for more efficient use of expensive chemicals.
The Tree Sprayer features two separate hose reels: one 12 volt powered Hannay large capacity hose reel with 300' of 3/4" 800 PSI hose for high height (up to 80') tree spraying, the second hose reel is a standard 12 volt powered Hannay hose reel with 300' of 1/2" 600 PSI hose for small shade tree spraying (up to 40') as well as root feeding. By having a second reel, two applicators can work simultaneously, another innovation in efficiency. The 15 Gallon Top Tank is for clean water only. The 12-volt high flow Hypro pump offer the operator a wash station (tree spraying can be a dirty job) and an easy method for rinsing tanks and equipment.
The 'heart' of the Rittenhouse 500 Gallon Tree Sprayer is our direct drive pump and motor assembly. The pump is a Hypro D1064, which is a proven and well balanced 4 diaphragm pump that easily produces 28 GPM and up to 725 PSI. The over sized 20hp Honda engine, with electric start, features a huge 30 amp charging system, keeping the deep cycle battery fully charged to operate the 12 volt powered hose reels and the high flow Hypro pump for the wash station. The exhaust is extremely quiet, and a extra large 12 Gallon fuel tank is conveniently mounted to the passenger side.
The fuel tank is convenient to fill both the towing vehicle and the sprayer at the same time. The Honda engine and direct gearbox driven pump combination runs extremely smooth with virtually no vibration. Excessive vibration can cause fittings to leak, and lots of frustration. This is what we call a well- balanced combination: a two-cylinder engine and a 4-diaphragm pump, with virtually no vibration.
When designing the Rittenhouse 500 Gallon Tree Sprayer, no detail was overlooked. Everything was designed with the future in mind, all components are easy to access for repairs, and the durability is second to none.
