Miller Nitro 4000 Series Sprayer
Miller-St. Nazianz Inc. has gone all in by rolling out five new Nitro sprayers. The company announced its intent to sell hay equipment brands Miller Pro,Victor and Badger. The decision to take a wider swath of the sprayer market was guided by changing fundamentals, says Miller vice president John W. Miller. “The 80/20 rule of sprayer sales has totally reversed,” Miller adds. “Instead of 80% of large sprayers being purchased by custom applicators, the past five years has seen a major shift to these machines being purchased mostly by farmers.” As with past Nitro models, Miller’s new 4000 Series machines rely on an adaptable front-mount boom system that allows the operator to face forward during operation.The machines are designed with balanced weight distribution, direct-drive Torq-Trac hydrostatic drives and Poclain wheel motors for constant traction and better hill climbing. Air-ride seats and air suspension add to comfort and control.
