Research and development are the cornerstones of our philosophy and once again Fleet is at the forefront of field marking evolution. We are continuing our investment into paint technology with the arrival of our new high shear mixer.
The mixer, with its precision-engineered workhead, far outperforms conventional mixers by cutting processing times by up to 90%, improving quality, product consistency and process efficiency. It creates a finer grind and smaller particle size. The paint will mix and go through marking machines easier than the traditional high-speed mixer we have previously used.
With the rollout of new Kombi3 & Kombi Orange machines in the last 24 months, some of you will have noticed the new pump pressure gauge on your Kombi. This allows you to mark your fields at 60psi or go down as low as 18psi. Traditionally we recommend the blue nozzle for the Kombi walk behind machines, however with the new grind quality you will be able to go to the green or the orange nozzle and mark your field with less paint and at a lower pressure setting. Currently, the gauge is located under the bonnet and this is altered by the user as desired. The new machines coming out in the next 12 months will have the control at your fingertips with the stop/start switch on the handlebars.
All of Fleet’s machines will be fully compatible with our Ready for Use paints. As a Fleet client you will have the choice to stay with dilutable paints or go the way of Ready for Use. Also watch out for the new Kombi……… (whoops, that’s a secret!).
