Plant protection machinery checks
To comply with the Sustainable Use Directive (SUD), all pesticide application equipment (PAE) needs to be tested on a regular basis. Any machine that applies pesticides after November 2016 must be tested within certain timescales which vary depending on the type and size of equipment used.
Oakes Bros. are an accredited member of the National Sprayer Testing Scheme (NSTS) for liquid types of sprays.
We'll conduct a comprehensive check that includes all the main mechanical, hydraulic, electrical and pneumatic systems as well as all major fittings, mountings, linkages, valves, hoses and connectors.
We're committed to maintaining your machinery in the best possible condition and keeping you compliant while ensuring operator safety at all times.
