The Diesel model is manufactured with Auto Start controls specifically programmed by Macquarrie in Australia for Tow & Blow requirements. The controls incorporate USA made ‘Murphy’ components. New Macquarrie controls are
programmed in 5 languages (English, French, Spanish, German and Italian), with easy interchange between languages
on control screen.
Due to extra torque from diesel engine, the 5 blade fan has been able to be pitched up to 35 degrees, thereby increasing air velocity from the fan. All machines now have an extendable draw bar. All machines now have 3 different boom height settings to enable operation at lower height if required. Because of the stability of diesel fuel, we able to use clear fuel tanks, which enable fuel level to be seen from ground level. Machines can be ordered to come with long fuel line running through slip ring in slew to enable connection to external bulk fuel supply (comes fitted with pump). This is made to order at an additional cost. All machines come fitted with evaporative cooling componentry.
Protection area in normal radiation frost can
be expected up to 5 hectares. Correct positioning
to operate with the local cold air drift is required. If
operating in full rotation mode, expect protection to
125 metres on each side of fan; 60 metres facing into
cold air drift and 200 metres downstream of fan.
