New Miller Nitro 6365 sprayer improves efficiencies, savings for growers

23 November 2015

The innovative drive train system with the new Miller Nitro 6365 sprayer is helping deliver up to a 30 per cent reduction in fuel consumption.

MILLER has released its latest self-propelled sprayer, with new features promising better efficiency, equating to saving growers time and money.

The Nitro 6365 is the latest model in the popular Nitro range and boasts a new propulsion system that allows maximum power with minimum fuel consumption.
 
According to Jon Bent from McIntosh Distribution, Miller’s Australian distributor, the new model has retained all the features growers have come to expect from a Nitro, such as the high underframe clearance, industry-awarded Hydralink suspension and the versatility of the Quick-Attach system.

The Nitro is well known for its front-mounted design, which enables a commanding view of spray operation and ensures the spray pattern is not adversely affected by wind created by the machine.

What is new, according to Jon, is the innovative drive train system, which optimises the performance of the 6365.

“The new drive train has been completely redesigned with variable displacement hydrostatic drive system and planetary torque hubs,” Jon said.

“This means faster response to speed changes through more efficient transfer of power to the ground, even at lower engine RPM, all contributing to a reduction in fuel consumption.

“Early feedback from operators is that we are seeing up to a 30 per cent reduction in fuel consumption with the 6365 when compared to equivalent-sized machines.”

The 6365 has new styling, with increased access to the engine bay making servicing much easier and more convenient.
 
It also has a redesigned cooling system with a reposition of cooling components, which Jon said had resulted in an increase in efficiency as well as a reduction in operator and environmental noise.
 
“The Nitro was already class leading when it came to noise reduction, and that has now been improved further in the 6365.’’

“The cab boasts a larger full colour touch screen display, monitoring engine and spray system functions and includes an integrated rear facing camera with full-time rear vision during transport and is automatically on when reversing.

“Outside the cab, a full array of LED lights now provides even better night vision than previous models.”

Miller’s Spray-Air system is available with the 6365, combining the benefits of both air-assist and air-atomisation into one powerful spray nozzle system.

As always, the Nitro’s front-mounted boom and rear-mounted engine provide optimum weight balance with a large tank range, including 4500-litre, 5300L and 6100L options, also of which come with full manufacturers’ warranty.

Miller sprayer owners also have access to excellent customer service from an experienced, knowledgeable dealer group, supported by McIntosh Distribution, with a reliable network for parts supply, service and technical support.

The demand for the 6365 has already commenced and Jon said the first machines were due for delivery in Australia in February 2016.

He encouraged interested growers to enquire promptly in order to avoid delayed delivery times.

“If customers are considering upgrading to a 6365 and they want to make sure they have it in time for pre-seeding spraying, now is the time to act to ensure delivery,” Jon said.
