Vicon Tops for Tips

Ei Operator has teamed up with Vicon UK to give sprayer operators the chance to win one of a selection of Vicon branded clothing.

By simply submitting a ‘Top Tip’ about best spraying practice, operators will be entered into the competition to win an item of their choice. The first 10 entries that are chosen to be published on Ei Operator will get to choose from a range of clothing including softshell jacket, padded body warmer and sweatshirt amongst other options.

Previous winner

Marcus Jarvis won himself a free ticket to Cereals in a similar Top Tips competition earlier this year. Here he fixes an 8in flexible pipe to the side of the sprayer to hold his filling hose. Marcus not only keeps it safe and tidy, it also makes it much easier to use than dragging it up the steps. You can read the rest of his Top tips HERE.

How to enter

All Top Tip entries must be your own and sent via email to the following address: and include the following:

  • A description of the Top Tip in less than 200 words
  • A minimum of one photograph to support your entry and clearly showing your Top Tip in action (all images must be high resolution)
  • Then, add your name
  • Your email address
  • And a contact phone number
  • Tell us roughly where you work (eg near Aberdeen or Bodmin, Cornwall)
  • And what sprayer you operate

Closing date for entries is the 30th September 2019.

By entering this competition, you are agreeing to the publishing of your Top Tip on Ei Operator, Pro Operator and associated social media, including any photographs submitted with your entry.

Full Terms & Conditions are available as a PDF download HERE. By entering the competition, all entrants are agreeing to these terms.

Winning entries

The winners of the competition will be judged by the editor of both the website and Pro Operator Magazine, Mick Roberts. He will choose ten winners whose Top Tips are suitable for publication. His decision is final.

We have 10 Vicon-branded items to give away – winners will be contacted about their choice from a range of options (subject to availability).

Our thanks to Vicon UK for supplying the prizes.
