I am looking hard at a new miller nitro with a spray-air boom. We need a new sprayer and I really want a spray-air boom. I think the condor is just to heavy for my area, after seeing the pictures on the web of Condors sunk 4 plus feet in the mud I have my doubts it would be a good fit in western OR. The Nitro seems to have a better weight distribution as far as axles go. How well will they do on moderately soft soils? I am also curious how wide of tires you can put on a Nitro without having problems with the wheel motors.

You can go wide floaters if you need them but I went with 380x105x50 tires which give me 30psi to the ground.In soft mud they will be like a car on ice. You do not have one drop before the other.You just slide around.They will go down evenly.Hopefully not at all.

landluver1972, can you tell us where you are from, so we know where your service is bad. We traded a 200ht that we had for 6-7 years, maybe more for a new Nitro. If the new one is anything like the 200ht we will not ever need the service truck to come out.

Ran a 200ht to about 2500 hrs and really didnt have much trouble with it. N.ow were runnin a 4315 with a 1600 gal tank and 100ft booms dont care much for the big tank, too much weight when full but i guess you dont have to fill it other wise i really like it the ride is excellent and the front steering bushings are much better than the 200ht but so are alot of other things. As a whole i love the machine all the way around.
