Ferris unveiled the FS5250 Voyager high-capacity commercial spreader sprayer, which can efficiently handle expansive areas while improving productivity. A pivoting front axle, wider footprint and low center of gravity increases traction and operator confidence on uneven terrain. 

“Research is pointing to the fact that landscape contractors are growing their businesses by adding turf care to their service offerings,” said Dan Roche, marketing director of commercial products, Briggs & Stratton. “Adding the FS5250 Voyager to our robust line of spreader/sprayers is another tool to help landscapers who trust Ferris to extend their season and grow their businesses by offering higher margin services.” 

Designed with commercial areas, sports turf and large properties in mind, the FS5250 Voyager is built to make quick work of the task at hand. FS5250 Voyager’s operator platform is cushioned by rubber isomers, and simplified controls amplify comfort, helping the operator precisely apply product. The FS5250 features a stainless-steel frame and runs on a 38-gross horsepower Vanguard V-Twin engine. Additional Voyager features include:

• Equipped with a 250-pound-capacity Ferris hopper and 80-gallons of liquid capacity to provide maximum coverage of up to 7.4 acres with liquid material. 

• Three-section breakaway boom. Operators can select from a 4-, 8- or 12-foot spray width to precisely deliver liquid product without stopping to refill. 

• Molded pockets for increased granular capacity. The unit has molded pockets in the liquid tanks, equipping the FS5250 to carry up to 100 pounds more granular material; the location of these pockets allows for easy loading.
