I got a 2009 Miller Nitro 4365, the wheel motors were replaced at 2500hrs on a small scale recall, something to do with some bad bolts, 150 hrs afterwords a seal went out on one but now life has been good. I highly recommend front mount booms, after having them I don't think I could go back, it's would be like going back to the Stone Age.
Miller vs. Hagie They have pros and cons, in my opinion the Miller has the suspension to beet, but it is heavy as a tank. Miller has a parts network also but both have a ton of off the shelf parts compared to Deere and Case. Hagie's suspension is not quite as good as a Miller but is a far lighter machine, so when comparing HP you can get by with a little less from the Hagie. Also with Hagie I have poked around with them a little and it seems they have really good tec support.
Just some of my thoughts, you hear a lot of horror stories about both of them but my luck and what I have seen I believe both are in the top end of spraying equipment
I don't want to forget a front boom sprayer does require a little more love as the generally get some residue build up on them, a quick rinse of the wheels every few days makes a big difference and I finally found a cleaner called fresh start that gets the glyphosate right off, but the trade off for that and having a much better view of what is actually going on and not having anymore problems with dust it is the clear shot. Also If you are raising any corn it is much nicer following rows and being able to use headline at tassel makes them really sweet.
