Hand-held units for maximum flexibility
The portable MANKAR® models are ideal for use in areas of dense cultivation, irregular row cultivations, or anywhere where a high degree of flexibility is needed.
Metering is carried out via manual adjustment of the metering valve, depending on the herbicide used. The product travels by gravitational force from the tank to the atomiser via the valve. The atomiser is activated by the push of a button, meaning that spraying is only carried out where and when needed. In order to achieve uniform metering per unit of surface area (e.g. l/ha), the anticipated walking speed must be considered when adjusting the valve and must be held as constant as possible.
Spray widths are available from 10 to 45 cm. On some models, the spray width can be adjusted by rotating the spray hood.
- Very lightweight and therefore less back strain
- Easy to transport
- Well balanced
- Minimises drift and hence risk to nearby cultivated plants, e.g. when spraying flower-beds
- rotatable spray hood (seelcted models)
- One battery charge is sufficient for approx. 8 hrs., so that even a long workday can be covered without a problem
The patented segment rotation atomiser of Mantis is again core of the new MANKAR HQ, the technical core element. Still, this is the only nozzle which allows applying undiluted Glyphosate and other herbicides exactly downwards. E.g. for Roundup UltraMax, the required quantity can be reduced by up to 80% (depending on the surface and weed coverage) with this efficient spraying technology, that is one bottle filling is sufficient for up to 5,000 m2.
