Knights trailed range on show

KNIGHT Farm Machinery used Sprays and Sprayers to provide one of the first public viewings of a new trailed sprayer range.

Designated the EU range, sprayers with capacities from 2500 to 3600 litres are on offer with booms up to 30m wide.

A new style of chassis incorporates a suspension unit as standard, while the 4-Series booms – developed jointly with John Deere – are claimed to provide protection for nozzles. Actual nozzle choice extends to use of AirJet or Airtec twin fluid systems.

Drawbar options include the automatic Smartrack 2000 electronic steering unit.

Specification includes mudguards, braking and modular clean water tank. The 3000 litre model, complete with 30m boom, suspension, electro hydraulics and electric steering has a list price of £30,143. &#42
