Weller Brothers is a large landscaper with many local customers on maintenance contracts for both landscaping maintenance in the summer and snow removal in the winter. They came to BENCO when they needed a multi-use sprayer that they can use all year round that can stand up the demands of their busy schedule.
South Dakota winters are extremely cold and can get nasty quick. Maintenance companies need a cost effective solution that will keep their customers’ lots clear, but not eat up their profits in product cost and overtime every time it snows. This spray truck is the perfect solution.
A single driver can treat a large parking lot with deicing chemical quickly and cost-effectively. They can service more customers faster, which is a tremendous savings on labor. They can also be out spraying earlier in the storm because the chemical will melt the snow and ice as it continues to fall. This proactive approach keeps their customers happy and safe while minimizing the need for return trips.
In the summer, they can change out the nozzles in five minutes and use their BENCO Sprayer for dust control on roads and job sites. Many of their rural customers also contract them to apply dust control chemicals to their gravel driveways.
We also equipped the spray boom with independently controlled boomless side sprayers to they can use it for roadside spraying as well. Our Boominator Boomless Spray Nozzles come in a variety of patterns and can spray up to 16 feet on either side of the truck., however there are nozzles available with up to a 32 foot range.
The Raven Industries SCS 440 agricultural-quality electronic rate control console mounted in the cab gives complete control over which sprayers are active (left roadside spray nozzle, the center road spray boom, or right roadside spray nozzle) with the flick of a switch without slowing down.
This high-tech agricultural spray control module also automatically adjusts the system pressure to match road speed. Just put in the application rate into the monitor and it will adjust the pressures for you so that you apply the most efficient amount of chemical at all times without wasting any chemical, regardless of speed.
Like all BENCO Sprayers, this system was built with the highest quality industrial spec parts including Banjo filters, valves, and fittings. All hoses feature industrial quick-change camlock connectors. BENCO sprayers are engineered with the customer in mind, with all controls positioned for easy to access and maintenance. Needless to say, Weller Brothers was extremely happy when they picked up their sprayer.
