QUIK STEAM

The safe, healthy alternative to weed control

Steam treatment is the only chemical-free option available as there is zero chemical run-off to root systems or into waterways. Steam dissipates quickly, which means there is no chance of spray drift or off-target damage.  This makes it safe for use around sensitive areas. Quik Steam is ideal for parks, gardens, schools, playgrounds and public spaces.

The Quik Steam production team have been working around the clock to keep up with demand. Why? Because our units take the best features of an integrated functional spray unit with the most consistent temperature-controlled steam delivery at the nozzle. This means you get a better kill all the time.

If you would like a demo, call today on 1800 645 688 or register your interest here. 


SPRAY TIPS

Make sure your 12-volt battery is getting a full 12 volts to your radio gear.  If it’s not, the radio gear won’t operate properly or possibly not at all.  We have a great Trickle Charger for your battery that you can hook up, plug in and forget about.  It will turn on and off as necessary to keep your 12-volt battery performing at its peak.  Order through our website and receive 20% discount!

Effective Mosquito Management

Your Partner in Custom Spray Equipment

Councils around Brisbane manage more than 20,000 hectares of saltmarsh mosquito breeding area, covering over 2500 known freshwater mosquito-breeding sites across the region. Council entomologists collaborate with researchers and other agencies to ensure they are using the best technology available to limit mosquito breeding, in and around Brisbane. The large, coastal saltmarsh mosquito breeding habitats are treated by helicopter and ground support by ATV and ute-based teams

Moreton Bay Regional Council collaborated with Quik Spray to develop a customised spray system, designed to treat potential mosquito breeding locations and is a valuable resource for mosquito management from a ground-level. These sites are inspected regularly using:

  • All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) teams
  • Utility vehicles
  • On foot

Equipped with a 500L water tank with a second 100L tank with an anti-backflow device, the unit is designed to be user-friendly and practical for operators out in the field. It allows the operator to carry two different mixes for different applications. The key feature and ultimate time-saver are the 2x 12-volt remote-controlled reels. Operators no longer need to roll up hoses. This reduces fatigue and saves time for the operator by retracting the hoses with the push of a button. This is particularly handy in and around obstacles such as trees and difficult terrain.

Quik Spray has been providing customised, engineered-for-purpose spray systems for council and spray contractors since 1988. Customisation is critical for operators as it reflects the specific needs of their work environment and is the backbone of their daily tasks.

mosquito-spray-unit-quik-spray

We systematically look at the tasks your operators perform and design our equipment around those needs to increase safety and productivity, all while minimising risk. Our drive and engineering capability are fuelled by our passion to make your everyday work practises easier and safer, with our industry-leading equipment. That’s why we are still the most trusted sprayer in Australia. It’s not just a product. It’s a journey. A solution. A life-long guarantee that we’ll support you.

NSW Weeds Conference

We had a wonderful 3 days at the NSW Weeds Conference held in Newcastle last week. From showcasing our compact QR400 12volt sprayer to meeting the local weeds experts, we always get great satisfaction from catching up with you all. A big thank you to everyone that stopped by our stand to see us. Here is a few photos from the event and our Quik Steam demonstration.

If you would like to see the Quik Steam unit in action, give us a call on (07) 5493 8944

SPRAY TANK 2 labelle1

Unit Survives 500m plunge. Fully submerged. Still works perfectly!

When the handbrake failed on his 1966 Landrover ute, John, was all ready to head out to spray for the day. However, what happened next delayed that job!

“I looked back with surprise to see the ute rolling away from me and through a fence. The ute travelled approximately 500 metres through the paddock, picking up speed as it approached a dam.  The ute missed several trees and landed in the dam at high speed with the spray unit still in the back”

You can see how much water had to be siphoned from the dam. The ute was a complete write-off.

1 week underwater and 8m deep

8 metres under water, John decided to attempt to retrieve his Quik Spray unit from the Dam. “I siphoned the dam level down 4m in about one week and then hired an industrial pump to continue to empty the Dam. When the ute was finally reachable, we secured the ute with chains and used a tractor to tow it onto the dam wall. The ute was a total wreck, (see pictures below) but I found that there was minimal damage to the Quik Spray unit!”

The Quik Spray sustained minimal damage, even after being submerged in a foot of silt and 8m of water.

Quik Spray steps up to help

“I pressure cleaned the whole unit, replacing the hose reel bearings and several oil changes to the motor and gearbox and cleaned the carby.  With the generous support of Quik Spray, the remote-control radio gear was also replaced.” So, after a week being submerged in water and silt, the Quik Spray was still in great working order! “I never expected to recover the unit in this excellent, working condition and I hope to use it for a few years yet, on our 350-acre property”, said John. John has been a long-term customer since 2007 and has been using his Quik Spray 400L single reel unit regularly for weed control, backburning and firefighting.

The Quik Spray all cleaned up, with new radio gear, donated by Quik Spray.

Quality and reliability is vital when investing in a spray system.  After 12 years of use and being submerged underwater,  John’s Quik Spray is a classic example of why we’ve been around for over 30 years and have earnt the reputation of building the toughest sprayer on the market.

Nothing beats Quik Spray quality.

Safety and Innovation In Action

At Quik Spray, we acknowledge that standard equipment doesn’t always solve your problems. In fact, it can reduce your efficiency causing you lost money and time. That’s why we utilise intelligent design and meticulous engineering to create something unique to your needs. We take the time to understand the way YOU operate.

Safety is Paramount for your Operators

The Safety Cell is a collaboration between IVM Group and Quik Corp to create a platform that would boost worker efficiencies and provide a safer environment for them to work in high-risk locations, where foot-work is simply too dangerous and often time-consuming. Purpose built for contract sprayers, the Safety Cell provides a safe enclosure to the operators who are located outside of the cab, allowing them to spray road-sides in high-risk locations. This enables the operators to work faster and cover more ground,  increasing work output in a safer environment around busy road-sides.

Compliant and Intelligent Technology

The use of the Safety Cell allows operators to work at speeds of 20km/hr as opposed to foot crews who would only achieve 4km/hr. The compliant ROPS system (Rolling Object Projection System) is engineered to meet AS 2294 strength requirements and is completely ADR compliant. The Safety Cell is equipped for two operators with dual-sided access. It is fitted out with intelligent communication systems that allow the operator to safely communicate with the driver, whilst in operation.

The build for this vehicle includes:

  • Toyota Hilux GVM upgrades
  • 2x 100m electric rewind hose reels (Spray Max 12Volt reels)
  • 400L baffled water tank
  • Mounted safety cameras in the cell area, side-facing and rear-facing
  • LED lighting
  • Intercom headset
  • Storage lockers
  • Road signage and mounting

The Safety Cell was awarded the Corporate Fleet Safety Award, presented by Holden, from the Australian Road Safety Foundation. Follow this link to read more

Fighting weeds for 17 years

Chasing weeds is hard yakka. Especially when they grow in the most difficult terrain. You know it’s going to be a hard job, especially when the terrain is rough, isolated and steep.

After starting his contract spraying business in 2002, Jim Stevenson was finding the challenges of spraying with a heavy rubber hose and manual reels frustrating and increasingly challenging. “All the wasted time and energy involved winding up hoses, only for it to get snagged halfway along, it drove me mad!” Determined to find a better option after successfully operating in NSW, he set a 12-month goal to purchase a Quik Spray unit and what better place to put it through its paces, then in the most difficult terrain, he could find. “I had been avoiding it like the plague. The steep, rocky outcrop was riddled with stumps and fallen timber and overtaken by blackberry. To me, this was the ultimate test for the Quik Spray”.

Jim spraying during aerial inspections, in conjunction with Liverpool Plains Shire Council

One of the best investments you can make 

“I could not believe how easy it handled the job and from that moment on I was convinced these units are one of the best investments you can make. I find that you can spray for 8 hours or so and still have enough energy left to go and play 2 games of touch football” said Jim. Now, after owning 3 units over the span of 17 years, Jim sees no reason to ever change the equipment he uses. “As with all machinery, there are down times. I have always found the staff in spare parts very obliging and friendly and parts are sent out very quickly. I would like to especially, thank Jeremy for his invaluable, technical support and step-by-step guidance on both occasions when I needed it most”.

It’s amazing how much you can get done 

With most of his work involving spraying Blackberry, Sweet Briar, St. John’s Wort, Bathurst Burr and Eucalypt regrowth, Jim noted that Woody weeds are on the increase in his region with the decline in sheep numbers.

“Sometimes it feels like a huge task and a never-ending battle, but it’s amazing just how much you can get done. It wouldn’t get done without a Quik Spray”.

Quik Spray Supports Landcare with New Spray Unit

Great news for Emu Creek Landcare Group! They have been granted funding from Heritage Bank to purchase a Quik Spray unit. We’re proud to provide the equipment that will be used by all the local landholders and Landcare volunteers who dedicate their free time to controlling noxious weeds in the Crows Nest/Toowoomba region.

Spraying in harsh conditions will be a great deal easier, thanks to the new 9TBE spray unit will be used to help knock out woody weeds including lantana, boxthorn and tree pear. Emu Creek Landcare is ensuring everyone can benefit and plan to hire it out to local landholders in the Crows Nest area. There has been a huge demand for Quik Spray units in this region and this system will provide another avenue to eradicate noxious weeds.

Landcare groups deliver hundreds of projects annually through the volunteer efforts of local community groups, Indigenous groups, and the more than 5,400 Landcare and Coast care groups that make up the Landcare movement. A Landcare group usually starts when community members with common objectives notice a local environmental issue that needs to be resolved and connect to make it happen. For example, erosion of sand dunes due to mismanaged beach access or weeds affecting agricultural productivity.

More than 93 per cent of farmers are active practitioners of Landcare, each making significant contributions to the sustainability and productivity of our land and water assets. They actively work to combat soil salinity and erosion through sound land management practices and sustainable agriculture practices.

Quik Spray is proud to contribute to the dedicated workforce of the many volunteers and landholders in the Crows Nest and wider Toowoomba region. The work by these valued community members makes a real difference to the local environment and is paramount in protecting our native flora and fauna.
