Croplands and RBR Enterprise partner to expand Self-Propelled Sprayer and Spreader offerings in the Australian broadacre market

RBR Enterprise, the industry’s fastest growing manufacturer of self-propelled sprayers and spreaders, is now exclusively available from Croplands in Australia.

Croplands, Nufarm’s emerging solutions spray equipment platform, and RBR Enterprise, a manufacturer of self-propelled application machines based in Byhalia, Mississippi, announced that they are joining forces to deliver a high quality, high productivity alternative to the Australian grain market.

Croplands is now the exclusive Australian distributor of RBR Enterprises’ full scope of offerings including the Vortex spray applicator model, a high-performance sprayer designed for professional crop applications.

Offering unmatched road speed, a fully mechanical drive train, and robust four-wheel drive, the Vortex is powered by a 9-litre Cummins engine delivering up to 430hp, ensuring exceptional performance across all terrains. With tank capacities up to 9400 litres and versatile boom options, including a 36m aluminium boom, the Vortex significantly enhances efficiency and productivity.

This distribution agreement leverages Croplands strong dealer network and decades of expertise, setting a new standard in the Australian market.

“Croplands is really excited to bring this proven large scale Self-Propelled sprayer to the Australian broadacre market” says Jeremy Rennick, National Sales Manager, Croplands. “We are hearing great feedback from growers who have demoed the unit that they appreciate the large volume tank, 80km/h road speed and the simplicity of the mechanical drive” Says Rennick.

Jason Eaton, COO, RBR Enterprise, says, “We are extremely excited to partner with a well-established dealer network to support our products in Australia. Croplands truly values strong support for their customer base, which firmly aligns with our core principles.”

Bellamy Dalton from Dalton Farming based at Hillston, New South Wales test drove the unit recently and summarised his experience with three words “Simple. Solid. Comfortable.” Dalton went on to say “It strikes me that although the Vortex is a large machine, it doesn’t feel cumbersome at all. It feels really agile from the driver’s seat.”

Customers will also be excited to know there is a split tank spot spray ready option available for those requiring an all-in-one solution for their broadacre spraying needs.
