Simplicity and best practices

[FOCUS] on the DARK Confort: fully motorised DUALELEC operation
- 100% BERTHOUD design: the aluminium body of the valve block makes it more resistant to corrosion and to give a longer life.
- All-in-one block: DUALELEC combines all the spraying-related functions together thanks to a stack of blocks enabling a significant reduction in the volumes of product residue in the pipes.
- Simple and intuitive operation: DUALELEC allows you to control all the sprayer functions from your cab and/or from your control station with no risk of possible errors.
- DUALELEC is a technology that we have been perfecting for 10 years: having proven that the technology is sound, we also want to offer you reliable and long-lasting innovation.
