A new automatic boom shutoff for sprayers is now available from Rinex. The AS7500 is easily attached to most spray rate controllers, GPS receivers and guidance systems with plug-and-play cables. It works with pull-behind and self-propelled sprayers.

The AS7500 automatically turns sections on and off when the spray rig crosses headlands or where it has already passed. Operators may spray around trees, rock piles or other obstacles without worrying about double spraying. The new device also connects with Tru Count air clutches for row shutoff on most planters.

Price of the AS7500 is $1,950, plus $150 for the custom cable for the spray rate controller. Contact Rinex Technology, Dept. FIN, 438 Alaska Ave., Torrance, CA 90302, 877/520-0083, www.rinextech.com.
