Arborjet launched two major time-saving innovations for tree care professionals. The new QUIK-jet Air is an air-powered trunk injection device designed to deliver precise formulation dosing in a matter of seconds to maximize productivity and reduce labor time. The new ARBOR-mobile smartphone app offers instant access to a Solution Finder to help diagnose tree issues, an Emerald Ash Borer Project Cost Calculator, Tree Tag capability using GPS, and more. Together, these Arborjet innovations break new ground for the tree care industry.
The QUIK-jet Air is the latest weapon in the war against tree insects and diseases. Its innovative design combines the simplicity of the popular QUIK-jet and power of the VIPER Air Hydraulic systems. The QUIK-jet Air features one-thumb switch operation, precise dose measuring, and air-powered injection in a rugged aluminum body weighing less than two (2) pounds that is ergonomically balanced for hand comfort. Designed for the tree care applicator who wants to inject multiple trees within a short time span, the QUIK-jet Air comes in its own kit bag with a shoulder strap, compressed air tank, drill bits, cleaning solution, and extra pockets for tools and related supplies. .
Tree care professionals can now easily access Arborjet’s knowledge base and online tools while in the field or on the road with ARBOR-mobile, a new mobile phone application available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. ARBOR-mobile helps professionals diagnose tree issues by searching on trees or pests within the database, and provides information about each along with the recommended Arborjet treatments. The GPS capability built into the application will mean that soon, professionals can tag trees using GPS, add notes, keep a history, and even export them to calculate project costs.
The ‘Contact Us’ feature provides a listing of Arborjet Regional Technical Managers’ emails, phone and office numbers. There are also links to the Arborjet Facebook and Twitter profiles, training videos on YouTube, product information, a Distributor locator, FAQs and more.
“The Arborjet name stands for innovation in the treatment of all things green and growing and we are extremely proud and excited to bring QUIK-jet Air to the industry. Judging by early reactions to it, there is a significant market for this optimally-designed and -manufactured device,” said Russ Davis, president and COO of Arborjet. “ARBOR-mobile underscores our commitment to improving education surrounding tree health and professionals’ bottom line,” he added.
