AFAIK the major replaced the racer range. Unsure of dates but l had a 1995 racer 3200 litre 24m xxx boom.Where does the berthoud major fit in range, below a racer or when did they come in or go out?
Thanks very much, wouldn’t was unsure of models wouldn’t be into sprayers!AFAIK the major replaced the racer range. Unsure of dates but l had a 1995 racer 3200 litre 24m xxx boom.
Changed to a Major in 2005 same capacity and width but its got axial booms which are far superior. Also has the actiflex suspension which l wouldnt be without.
Other improvements are 300 litre rinse tank as
opposed 100 l. Was told by salesman that the main tank was a thicker and stronger grade of whatever plastic they're made of.
Major has steering and one control box whereas racer was fixed and had two boxes.
Now possibly you could've specced up a racer with any/all of the above l dont know but thats the essential differences in mine which perhaps is some help to you.
l still have the major yes. A fine sprayer and miles ahead of the racer imo.
You’ve got on very well with it so, Iv no idea what box I have or how to use it, and as for behind the cover Iv no idea 🙈🙈!l still have the major yes. A fine sprayer and miles ahead of the racer imo.
I am away from the shed today but can send you a pic of the box tomorrow if u want.
I have, didn’t do any bedtime reading yet! Il give a few hours at it 2morro or Tuesday and see can I make head wayHave you the instruction. Book for it. We got an instruction Book from Murphy’s when the old one got lost. I am told there is no bother getting it rigged up to a GPS for section control.
you can also find out how many hectares it has done by pressing the correct sequence.
I don't think Berthoud do a sprayer similar to Cleanacres Airtec.That air assist,would that be the same or similar as a cleanacres airtec ?
I been told that a good set of air inclusions nozzles is about the same and less hastle🤷♂️
Got home and dumped 400l init and went out the back fieldAnd you had to have a play already!!! :)

That 4 extra meter each side take some getting used to
All electro hydraulic control
Set of nearly new guardian air 04s on it
1 or 2 small things need a tweak before next year but will work as is👍
Pulled back in the yard and put 50l of water in and 6l of antifreeze, pumped it round everything and parked in shed
Do most sprayers these days have the pressure gauge connected to a boom section?🤔
Turn that 1 off and no pressure....
Why not off the manifold?
Bit daftthat’s the way my case is anyway. I remember the day I got it and was shutting off sections and when I shut off the section that the pressure is run off the pressure just dropped to nothing. Didn’t know what had gone wrong so went tracing the pipe so now I know.
Apologies @ShaneB140 l forgot about this. No mine doesnt have the compressor. Here is a pic of my control box. Was once told that no 2 Berthouds had identical boxes which seems a bit hard to believe but all 3 l've had have been different.
Ah rite, my box is a bit big half of it would be too much!! Thanks @Titan 8820
