The MERLIN Range

The MERLIN is the company's flagship self-propelled machine, joining the range in 2012. The machine boasts a high standard specification with efficiency, reliability and comfort at the heart of its design.

At Househam, the customer's input is very important and the engineering team works closely with customers to incorporate feedback into all products and systems. A prime example of this is the MERLIN cab, which boasts one of the most user friendly, quiet and practical working environments available on the market today. All round visibility, ergonomic layout and full control of the spraying system and washing out procedure are just a few of the numerous plus points.

In conjunction with the user community, Househam engineers have developed Househam's own dedicated electronic rate controller. TMC (Total Machine Control) integrates many functions into one simple to use touch screen console. Add this to the FieldMaster GPS system, which was also designed and developed in-house, and you have a truly effective and efficient machine for chemical or liquid fertiliser application.

A class leading ride on road or in field is achieved with the use of the Househam Air Ride load sensing air suspension system. This system is one of the character defining attributes which has become synonymous with a Househam sprayer. Even weight distribution and a low centre of gravity ensures stability whatever the terrain and generous ground clearance means minimum crop damage.

MERLIN sprayers are also available with a range of advanced technologies designed to maximise application accuracy and your productivity. These include Auto Nozzle Select (ANS), ultra sonic Boom Height Control and the Spray Pilot hydraulically controlled hands-free steering system.

Power comes from ultra-reliable and fuel-efficient CAT 6 cylinder engines (ranging from 170-225hp depending on model). Spray tank capacity can be specified in either 4000, 5000 or 6000 litre variants and boom sizes range from a 24 metre twin-fold to a 36 metre triple-fold. A triple fold boom arrangement is available from 28 metres.
