Matt grew up in the small Mallee town of Hopetoun. Throughout his childhood Matt spent many hours helping his Dad around the family farm which he thoroughly enjoyed and this is where his interest in the agricultural industry began. As a child Matt’s other interests also included sport. It was Matt’s interest in sport that prompted him to move to Ballarat after completing year 12 to study PE teaching, however it wasn’t long before Matt realised his interest for the agricultural industry outweighed his interest in sport and he made the decision to move back to Hopetoun to work alongside his Dad on the family farm. Matt spent the next 5 years on the family farm working with his Dad. During this time Matt’s knowledge and passion for the agricultural industry grew, especially his knowledge and passion in relation to machinery, so when the opportunity to join the Belle-Vue team as a salesman arose Matt eagerly accepted. Matt is looking forward to settling into his new role with Belle-Vue, meeting our customers and is very excited for the challenges ahead. Outside of work Matt can be found spending time with his friends and family or his dog Molly. Matt is a very passionate Giants supporter and is hoping for a good season ahead.

Jordan ignited his passion for machinery and vehicles having grown up in the Sunrasia discrict starting off his teenage years cleaning up in truck mechanic workshops. In 1998 Jordan started his apprenticeship as a light vehicle mechanic before moving to Broken Hill where he was employed as a fitter/mechanic above ground in the South Mine. Jordan then went underground for 3 years working on agri-trucks and spray rigs for ground support. After working in the mines Jordan moved on farm to a large scale property between Hillston and Lake Cargelligo as a full time mechanic specialising in maintaining and servicing agricultural equipment.

Productivity is always front of mind for farmers and the rise of big self-propelled sprayers and their even bigger booms certainly helps you get more hectares sprayed per hour. Without accurate nozzle control, however, speed variations can cause patches of over- or under-dosage which will impact crop yield. Two of the most advanced nozzle control technologies currently available are Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) and HARDI H-SELECT. “It’s a fairly common misunderstanding that H-SELECT is just HARDI’s PWM offering,” says HARDI Australia’s Product Manager Steve Lancaster, “but the two systems are actually very different.” A QUICK DEFINITION Steve explains that Pulse Width Modulation works by switching nozzles on and off several times per second. This reduces the amount of fluid leaving the nozzle, which maintains the target Set Rate where the boom is moving slowly. “H-SELECT takes another approach entirely,” he continues. “It automatically switches between nozzles to deliver the right rate with constant fluid flow.” “Because it uses an array of nozzles, it is called Multi-Step technology.” THE DEEPER DIVE ON PWM PWM systems are defined by two factors: Pulsing frequency and duty cycle. The pulses are driven by an electric solenoid with a fixed frequency. If the controller opens the nozzle for 80% of those pulses to meet the set rate, that’s a duty cycle of 80%. Steve Lancaster says best practice is to set up the sprayer for an 80% duty cycle at your normal forward speed. “In a turn, the speed at different points across a large boom will double between the inner and outer tips,” he continues, “so you need capacity for the duty cycle to increase at one end and slow down at the other.” “But it can’t get too low or it might leave gaps in the coverage,” he adds. On a 15Hz system an 80% duty cycle equates to 12 ‘opens’ per second (15 x 0.8 = 12). At 20 km/h, that means the nozzle will spray for 300mm and shut off for the other 70mm.

In fact, H-SELECT will work for virtually any speed and boom width. “We’ve got customers using it on 54 metre booms with great results,” says Steve. Changing nozzles rather than pressure or flow rates preserves the spray quality and means the pressure can be set to give Very Fine, Fine, Medium, Coarse and Very Coarse droplets on demand – giving operators more versatility in changing conditions. Steve Lancaster points out that while HARDI’s H-SELECT is set up for four-nozzles system, not all Multi-Step systems use that many. “We like four because it appears to give the widest possible speed coverage and rate accuracy, especially for Australian spraying practices,” he says. “Or you can spray with three nozzles and save the fourth slot for a special purpose nozzle like a fertilizer jet.” MAKING THE CHOICE While high frequency solenoids and blending have made PWM installations more flexible, the constant on-off switching means they are unsuitable for air induction nozzles, and not ideal for producing very coarse droplets. The continual flow of a Multi-Step system avoids both of those issues. However, the number of no zzle configurations means a Multi-Step system needs careful planning. “Our free Nozzle Watch application does all that for you,” says Steve Lancaster. “Just enter your speed range and it will work out your optimum nozzle selection and rate accuracy for the job.” Whether you prefer PWM or a Multi-Step system like H-SELECT can depend on your sprayer setup, boom width and spraying speeds. “But just knowing they’re not the same thing,“ Steve points out, “is a good place to start.”

One way to reduce the gap and extend the speed range is a ‘blended’ system. This is basically two PWM installations with offset nozzles. The two cycles then overlap, “blending” the nozzle outputs for more complete coverage. HOW IS H-SELECT DIFFERENT? Multi-Step systems like H-SELECT combine up to four nozzles per nozzle body to maintain a set rate as the boom speed changes. “The nozzles are selected in whatever order and combination best suits the forward speed of the boom at that point,” Steve Lancaster says. This selection is continually updated against the speed of the boom, and switches instantaneously with micro-second blending to avoid coverage gaps. Steve points out that having up to 16 possible combinations makes four nozzles accurate over a very wide speed range – from starting out to long, fast runs in broadacre paddocks. “You could think of it as ‘tiered spraying on steroids’, he smiles, “with up 16 tiers instead of the usual three.”


J & K BALING Jade and Kate Clark own and operate J & K Baling, a contract bailing business located in the Dimboola – Gerang area of Western Victoria. J & K Baling has been operating for the past 15 years and over that period Jade and Kate have experienced continued growth and demand for their contracting services. As a result of this continued growth Jade and Kate recently decided to purchase a New Holland BB1290 Plus baler from the team at Belle-Vue Trading Warracknabeal. After considering other balers on the market Jade and Kate chose to purchase a New Holland BB1290 Plus baler for multiple reasons, they valued New Holland’s reputation for quality products and they also valued the benefits of dealing with a local team when it comes to sales, parts and after sales service. Consistent bale weight and shape are two key characteristics that are important to Jade and Kate, since taking delivery of their new BB1290 Plus baler Jade has been incredibly impressed with the balers ability to produce both while at the same time managing to exceed all output expectations. Jade believes the baler performed so well exceeded output expectations due to the MaxiSweep pick-up and its ability to feed so well. Jade has been impressed with the Intelliview, it provides a good, clear read out making it easy to use and he was also impressed by the active weigh feature. J & K Bailing’s BB1290 Plus baler was fitted with bale skiis and Jade has found these to be a valuable addition stating, “they are worth every cent and I wouldn’t have another baler without them.” Day to day maintenance of the BB1290 Plus baler is very simple and extremely straight forward, Jade describes it as, “a breeze, 10 minutes and it’s all done.” Due to Jade and Kate’s success with the BB1290 in the 2019 season they decided to expanded their operation and buy a second BB1290 Plus baler. When summing up the BB1290 Plus baler and his experience with Belle-Vue Trading Jade said, “I couldn’t fault the machine, so it all comes down to service and after sales support. The team at Belle-Vue Trading have been nothing short of fantastic”
