Tree Watering Boom.

ULS Group; a leader in the landscaping industry, approached us with a unique problem. ULS develop streetscapes and parks for new developments and continue to maintain the landscapes once completed. They needed a safer, more efficient way of water trees.

Traditionally the task of watering trees would require two operators per truck — one driving and the other operating the hose reel to water trees. ULS thought to have an operator working externally to the cab represented a risk, which was unnecessary.

We worked closely with Wayne Sloth and the water truck operators to develop the tree watering boom. A joystick controls the device which mounts to the front bumper. The operator has control of up and down movements as well as left and right. Having a four-way range of motion allows for precise alignment and maximises delivery efficiency.

ULS has taken delivery of two tree booms and installed these to their new TTi Cascade landscape trucks.

The tree watering boom is made in Australia and uses high-end pneumatic components from Festo.
