Tim and Marney O’Brien own and manage 40,500 hectares (100,000 acres) of irrigated and dryland farm property in the Pilliga and Cryon regions of north-west New South Wales, Australia. In just over 12 months, the O’Briens installed nine Cummins power units as they upgraded and developed the irrigation process for 4,050 hectares (10,000 acres) of their land for cotton farming. In addition, they have approval to develop a further 1,012 hectares (2,500 acres) for cotton.
In 1997, when Equipment Technologies was founded, their mission was to design a tough, reliable, simple sprayer. Their solution was mechanical drive machines that are simple to run and maintain, efficient and light but ultimately, tough enough to get the job done. One of their key product features is the tractor ‘feel’ - a comfortable ride for long days out in the field.
Powering Hardi’s self-propelled sprayer range, the B4.5, B6.7 and L9 Performance Series engines bring more machine capability, increased fuel efficiency, more productivity and lower total cost of ownership to Hardi sprayer operators, while the simpler architechture and EGR-free design gives Hardi packaging flexibility.
Crinklaw Farm Services Inc worked alongside Cummins to develop a suitable long term power solution for their Global Unmanned Spray System (GUSS). That solution is the Cummins QSB6.7 engine, which now powers the world’s first and only autonomous orchard sprayer. The QSB6.7 is a fully intergrated system rated at 173hp (129 kW) with cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and a High Pressure Common Rail fuel system.
Australian spray equipment manufacturer Goldacres is well known for providing a wide range of spray equipment, from its 2-litre hand held compression sprayer through to the 8,000-litre broad acre, self-propelled Super Cruiser. In 1996, Cummins was chosen as Goldacres’ driveline partner during the development of its first self-propelled Crop Cruiser sprayer. Launched in 1999, Goldacres’ flagship product was powered by a Cummins 5.9 litre 6BTA engine, rated at 177 hp (132 kW).
As the second largest producer of almonds in the world, Australia is seeing a dramatic increase in greenfield almond farm developments across Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia. The Almond Board of Australia is predicting orchards will grow to sprawl across more than 50,000 hectares (124,000 acres), producing an annual crop worth more than $1 billion by 2025.
