A sprayer built to deliver more precise application in less time, with less wear on the machine and operator is an entry in the Henty Machine of the Year Award.
The Croplands RoGator C Series self-propelled sprayer features a revolutionary SmartDrive system linking the tractor management system, controlling both engine RPMs and hydrostatic drives.
There is no need for operator input for efficient operation, even in the most undulating country.
The LiquidLogic plumbing improves spray accuracy and efficacy by creating consistent pressure across the boom to maintain a consistent droplet size through all nozzles.
It also has a full recovery system using air to force chemical from the boom lines back into the tank to minimise waste and contamination.
The RoGator C Series sprayers feature an intuitive Accuterminal control interface with fingertip control to monitor and control chassis and machine functions.
The screen navigation allows the operator to view up to four different functions of their choice at the same time.
A 48 metre aluminium Pommier boom is optional on the new Croplands RoGator RG1300C for contractors and broadacre farmers wanting a lighter, stronger option for greater productivity.
Norac boom height control is a standard feature on the 48m Pommier boom and allows it to shadow the ground – even in rough or hilly terrain to maintain optimum boom height, reduce drift and improve stability.
Hinge points, pins and locks are made from steel where the duty cycle is high and adjustment may be required.
The boom alignment can be adjusted simply and quickly at the hinge points.
The wing sections have a mechanical self-lock and hydraulic unlock while the breakaways are designed to move backwards, forwards and up.
