[Abstract]: A method is investigated for damping the oscillation of a very wide agricultural spray rig. The present mechanical dampers couple the rolling disturbance of the vehicle into the tilt of the spray booms and an alternative technique is desirable. A method whereby the booms are driven in a manner analogous to a tightrope walker's balancing pole is shown to be effective.
