    that sprayer has auto boom height adjust, computer controlled, and is a hydro. You can spray anywhere from .5mph to 15mph depending on conditions. basically you tell the computer your gallons per acre and how high you want the boom from either the crop or the soil, and then it adjusts the height and pressure to account for changes in speed and terrain.
    I'll post some haying equip pics tommorrow if the weather is ok
