Fraziers aiming higher

LOW ground pressure sprayer manufacturer TJ Frazier is going for higher ground clearance next season following the development of a new axle for its TDI self-propelled range.

The axle allows bigger row crop wheels to be fitted to increase clearance from 60cm (2ft) to 70cm (2.4ft) and improves the machines main gearing due to the addition of an epicyclical hub reduction unit.

Not only are there now more gears available for use in the field, says the company, the gearing is a better match for the eight speed automatic gearbox employed in the sprayers. &#42
