Variable Geometry (V.G.) Boom 24 to 42 metres
Seen here is the first Variable Geometry (V.G.) 12/24/36m boomed RB25, delivered in July 2000.
All V.G. booms have independent fold, independent boom incline left & right, tilt, and auto-return hydraulic break back protection backwards and forwards along the full width of the boom.
Opening and folding is kept below the recommended H.S.E safety height of 4.0 meters.
24m VG boom folds at 12/20/24
28, 30, 32 or 36m V.G. booms will spray/fold at either 12 or 24m
40, 42m V.G. booms will spray/fold at 14 & 28m
The 40 & 42m booms were designed and developed in late 2006, improvements incorporated in there design can now be seen across the range of Variable Geometry booms.
