SprayTest offers remote boom control
Real Agriculture
Checking nozzles on the sprayer for uniformity can prove rather tedious, as it often means clambering up and down sprayer steps to turn booms on and off, and running behind the sprayer to take a look, all while attempting to avoid drift. SprayTest Controls Inc. has changed that process, with the remote boom control system. The system controls up to 8 booms, allowing the user to select individual booms with a handheld remote from behind the sprayer.

Expert: Trains can't be built for winter
The Western Producer
Harsh winter is a fact of life in Western Canada, but farmers shouldn’t hold their breath waiting for winter-optimized grain trains, says a former railway vice-president. Not only would winter-best trains likely be worse for the rest of the year, but railway manufacturers aren’t too interested in customizing equipment for the Prairies.

Is the MF5610 the ultimate loader tractor?
Farmers Guardian
Billed as the ultimate loader tractor, we were keen to find out if Massey Ferguson’s claims regarding its 5600 Series were justified. James Rickard puts one to the test on-farm.

The design of the new K Series models (621K, 623K, 627K), says John Gerhold, wheel tractor-scraper application specialist, is aimed at production efficiency and operator amenities, qualities that Construction Equipment recently asked a pair of seasoned professional operators to evaluate.
