Berthoud has launched a smaller addition to its Raptor range of self-propelled sprayers. With a capacity of 2500litres and able to be fitted with 24m to 28m booms, the Raptor 2540 has a 40kph three-speed hydrostatic transmission and power is supplied by a 180hp Deutz engine. A twin turbine centrifugal pump combine flow and pressure is achieved at 1600rpm for better efficiency, says the company. Like others in the series, it gets cruise control and is able to be equipped with four-wheel steering. The cab is the same as the larger 3200, 4200 and 5200 machines.
