PPP has been manufacturing sheep Jetters since the early 1980’s. The ”magic eye” Lincoln Sheep Jetter is part of on-going development and innovation to meet customers’ needs for the control of flystrike and parasites.
The Jetter is manufactured from high quality stainless steel here in New Zealand which has a superior look but also importantly reduces the weight of the unit down to 48kg and is also corrosion free.
The strong, compact frame has few moving parts which means less maintenance. The unit comes complete with all necessary pipework including cam-lock fittings, intake filter, and a Honda 5.5hp petrol engine with a Davey Fighter pump. The success is based around the simplicity, reliability and competitive pricing coupled with the high throughput of sheep per hour i.e. 800-1,000/hr with 2,000 being an absolute maximum.
Sheep Jetting offers a very effective way to dip sheep. An accepted modern system that gives absolute confidence to farmers by controlling external parasites. Apply only what you need, where you need it. With jets on the top, and underneath, you can get exact coverage of the sheep, which means you won’t waste expensive products by using more than what is needed or less than what is required to achieve your desired results. Sheep Jetting is a more efficient and cost effective way to apply topical liquids than sheep dipping.
Aimed at dealing with flystrike or lice, the unit gets the active
liquid treatment to skin level, from the poll, over the shoulders and
along the back line, then over the rump, down around the crotch and
around the pizzle area. The unit itself is light yet strong and can be
easily moved into position. The jetting system is triggered as animals
move down the race and are detected by the electronic sensor.
The spray valve, activated after detecting the animal, achieves instant jetting, sending a continuous stream that ensures maximum wetting. It is recommended that animals move through the race in no more than one per second for best results.
A major change to the Lincoln Model from our Previous Harrington Sheep Jetter has been with the introduction of the magic eye system to activate the jets of water. The other major change is the we now run the top two rows of nozzles length wise down the race rather than from side to side. This new configuration of the nozzles ensures better saturation with a greater amount of product applied to the back which dissipates and runs down each side of the sheep. This ensures the Jetter is as effective in controlling fly as it is for lice & keds.
Due to the ability to connect and disconnect the whole unit in a matter of minutes (including the pump and motor). The Jetter is very user-friendly and can be easily moved to different sites on the farm and easily stored away by one person.
The magic eye system works efficiently so that if sheep are not moving through the Jetter then no product is dispersed, this means no liquid is being released; hence no wastage and no need to recycle contaminated dip but once the sheep start walking through the race and break a beam they immediately get hit with product.
The Sensor Jetter allows different sized sheep to be dipped at the same time. This enables ewes with lambs at foot or small lambs to go through on their own and still activate the Jetter.
