Househam Sprayers come to TTMI
TTMI has become the Australian importer for Househam self-propelled sprayers in its latest move; alongside its core partnership with Case IH tractors and a range of machinery from other strong machinery brands.
Dealer Principal Jason Henry says the decision to partner with United Kingdom sprayer manufacturer Househam “made sense”, due to many prospective customers of these self-propelled sprayers being in areas TTMI already services.
“The prime market areas for Househam Sprayers are market gardens and vegetable growing areas; so, most of the areas are within Tasmania and Victoria. We will also look at putting dealers on throughout the rest of Australia to service the whole country,” he says.
The Househam range consist of four models Spirit, Air-Ride, Harrier and Predator, which can all be custom built to the individual requirements of growers.
The Spirit is a versatile and popular sprayer due to its ease of use, and low weight, 3000ltr capacity and precision nozzle control to maximise productivity.
The Air-Ride is designed to optimise crop care and deliver outstanding return on investment. Light weight and equipped with an array of advanced features as standard, and the adaptability of the design allows you to customise the machine to meet the demands of your crops and terrain.
The Harrier is built to meet the needs to professional operators. The Harrier is a high output sprayer that places performance, efficiency, and comfort at the heart of its design.
The Predator sets the new standard for advanced spraying technology, delivering outstanding stability and manoeuvrability with a massive capacity.
“Our first machine will be arriving mid-year and we’ve got some other machines that are sold and more on the way as well.
It has been a busy period for TTMI, recently opening its fifth branch, located in Latrobe in North-West Tasmania, after having only opened its fourth branch last year in the Victorian town of Leongatha.
“The Latrobe branch is going to support our brands in Tasmania where we have construction equipment, and give us an overall better spread, being able to service our customers over the whole of Tasmania,” Henry says. “It’s a small island but there are a lot of roads in Tasmania and a lot of travel, so this will help us get to our customers when they need us.”
“We now cover everything from lawnmowers and quad bikes through to high horsepower tractors and air seeders, spreaders, mixer wagons – everything our customers need,” Henry says. While Case IH tractors are the showpiece of TTMI’s range, Henry says the company’s philosophy is to “look after our regions” - specifically Tasmania and Gippsland - with the aim of servicing all customer needs from their nearest TTMI branch.
