Bestway, Inc., a leading specialty agricultural equipment manufacturer and marketer, recently announced the introduction of the AutoGlide automatic sprayer-boom-height control system for Bestway Field PRO IV sprayers.

The new AutoGlide system uses rugged ultrasonic range sensors mounted on the spray boom to continually monitor and maintain the height of the booms above the ground or crop canopy. The AutoGlide system delivers more consistent spray patterns, better coverage and reduced drift potential. With AutoGlide, operator fatigue is reduced, allowing you to cover more acres in a day.

AutoGlide uses the sprayer's existing electric-over-hydraulic controls, so there are no extra hydraulic components to add to your sprayer. This makes AutoGlide the simplest and easiest automatic boom height control system to install.

A compact, in-cab controller with a simple menu to configure and calibrate allows operators to engage and disengage automatic mode as well as adjust boom height on the go.

AutoGlide is available from Bestway dealers in 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-sensor models to fit most boom sizes and terrain.
