Sprayer made to move

OPERATORS of tractors fitted with 40kph gearboxes often cannot make full use of the transmission when towing wheeled equipment with running gear which is not rated to the same speed.

To overcome this conflict where sprayers are concerned, Amazone has introduced its UG 4500 Magna. Its 4750-litre capacity tank is mounted on a reinforced chassis and axle assembly fitted with 20.8R38 tyres rated to 40kph.

The sprayer is offered with the companys Amatron II or GPS compatible Unipilot spray control systems and various boom options, including the 15-28m (49-92ft) Super S range. All fold to 3.4m (11ft) high and 2.4m (7.9ft) wide for transport and can be fitted with air assisted nozzles, which Amazone describe as drip-free due to a new pressure release system.

Standard features of the UG 4500 Magna, which has a ground clearance of 90cm (2.9ft), include an induction bowl with power injector and a 320-litre clean rinsing water tank.

Price in standard specification is £30,250. &#42
