Challenger

Challenger

Challenger will show the new RoGator 600D models that feature a completely re-designed cab – the Vision Cab – together with a new electronic control system.

 

The new cab offers a 90 per cent increase in the front screen surface area and a narrower steering column, which, together, provide the operator with enhanced forward vision.

Landquip

Landquip will introduce its new demount sprayer for the JCB 4000 Fastrac, the first to be fitted with tri-fold booms up to 36 metres. A new sprayer demount chassis attached to the Fastrac's new rear platform spider frame can be demounted in about 10 minutes.

 

The aluminium tri-fold boom is available in 30, 32, 34 and 36 metre widths which are all capable of spraying at 24 metres giving farmers and contractors optimum flexibility.


Vicon

Vicon

Vicon makes its return to the self-propelled sprayer market with the iXdrive, equipped with a 5,000 litre tank and with boom options from 24-30m (aluminium) and 24-40m (steel).

 

Powered by a 240hp engine with hydrostatic drive, the sprayer offers 50:50 weight distribution, disc brakes, GPS auto switching control of up to 15 sections, hydraulic track width adjustment and ground clearance options.


Tecnoma

Tecnoma will show a range of updates to the Laser FC (forward control) self-propelled sprayer, in particular to its Cat 4 cab, including a new high comfort seat, with built in heating and ventilation.

 

There is also a new ergonomic armrest and the hydrostatic transmission now has higher capacity variable delivery pumps and features a new speed regulator and eco-driving mode which adapts engine speed to the required load, reducing noise and fuel consumption.


Team

Team

A new rear folding hydraulic boom option and 1,800 litre tank are now available for the Arian range of mounted Team sprayers.

 

Constructed from tubular and formed sheet steel for strength and lightness, the rear booms are offered as an alternative to side folding booms for operators concerned with their increasingly wide tractor cabs and the possibility of catching side folded booms during transit.


Knight Farm Machinery

Xtra models with vertical-folding booms and tanks up to 1,900 litres have joined Knight Farm Machinery’s range of tractor-mounted machines.

 

The booms fold within the tractor width, giving clear access to the tractor cab, while the lattice design protects spray-lines and nozzle bodies.

 

Features include remote control of boom functions, a GPS-ready Muller Basic terminal and MAXImiser plumbing with pressure circulation.
