Cereals was the first UK show appearance for Tecnoma’s new self propelled sprayer.
The FC Laser is powered by Stage 3B engines from Deutz, which deliver 180hp in the 3200 litre machine and 214hp in the 4200- and 5200 litre machines. There is also an option to upgrade power to 240hp. Booms are offered from 24- to 40m.
Although it shares the same chassis as Berthoud’s FC Raptor and has the same lowering front cab, the FC laser has different sprayer controls and booms – while Berthoud machines use in-house controls, Tecnoma uses a full Muller system. The price is £120,000.
