The Bell 47 is a Turbine powered (Soloy) light Helicopter, which is beautifully suited to Aerial Spraying and smaller lift operations. The use of a turbine engine in the classic Bell 47 gives us increased performance, reliability and fuel endurance up to 2.5 hours. The Bell 47 Soloy can be fitted with liquid spray equipment that include tanks with a capacity of up to 450 litres.

The quiet noise signature of the Bell 47T is also excellent around noise sensitive areas such as livestock/horses etc.

We have also developed and manufactured custom ‘On-board’ dry application equipment for the application of granulated products for eradication of Imported Red Fire Ants, Yellow Crazy Ants, and control of Mosquito larvae. The Air-blast solid application system is perfect for very low application rates with even application at all times.
