The NEW R700i range of John Deere Trailed Sprayers
21st August 2020;
John Deere are pleased to launch the new R700i range of trailed sprayers. This new range has incorporated features from the popular R900i sprayers, which are as follows:
The unique PowrSpray system, developed by John Deere themselves will be featuring on these smaller machines. This system is equipped with a dual circuit solution system, one for filling, and one for spraying. This enables a 98% accuracy application rate, in a 0.3 second reaction time. The PowrSpray system also consists of using an Active Pause feature, which allows you to pause the intake of water into the tank, but still keeps the induction hopper supplied with water for incorporating Chemical, Proportional Agitation, and automated rinsing and dilution of any left over concentrate chemical in the main tank down to a known concentrate.
Available tank sizes will be 3,200 lt (R732) or a 4000 lt (R740i) and boom sizes will vary from 18 to 30 meters. A new, improved, more operator friendly joystick has also been developed, which allows more functions to be performed the joystick, with easier positioning of the buttons for operator comfort. Precision Ag technologies including Section Control, AutoTrac and AutoTrac Vision will all be easy to run via the integrated or universal screens from John Deere, including the 4240, 4640 and 4600. As Applied data will also be sent back to the MyJohnDeere OpsCentre via the Wireless Data Transfer in real time providing as applied information from the machine itself.
Individual nozzle control is also an option on these machines, which can save up to 5% crop production product, which equates to around £5.50/ha sprayed. The individual nozzle control is electronically controlled by solenoids on the nozzle body itself which will also enable spot spray if wanting to use application maps.
A Closed Transferred System (CTS) option is also available, this will allow maximum protection for the operator when incorporating chemical into the machine.
