SASKATOON, SK – NORAC Systems International, a member of the Topcon Positioning Group announces the release of Active Wing Roll™ for RoGator, Apache, New Holland and Miller Nitro sprayers. This follows a successful release of Active Wing Roll™ aftermarket kits for select models of Case and John Deere sprayers in the spring of 2015. Active Wing Roll™, an advanced boom height control technology that is revolutionizing the spraying industry, was designed for extreme terrain.
“Feedback from customers throughout the 2015 spraying season has been extremely positive,” said Danea Armstrong, president. “This prompted us to offer the product on a wider range of sprayer models. Active Wing Roll offers performance, even in the most challenging terrain, that can’t be provided by any other boom height control supplier.”
Active Wing Roll™ can be applied to a variety of sprayer center section designs including center pivot, pendulum, trapeze and rigid booms. “This patent pending technology is an exciting movement forward in the industry,” said Jason Griffith, vice president of technology. “Controlling center section roll, or in this case simulating center section roll, is the future of automatic boom height control.”
