Agritechnica 2019: Lemken debuts Nova sprayer

After seven years of development and continual requests from dealers and customers, Lemken has finally pulled the wraps of its new Nova 14 self-propelled sprayer.

Headline spec sheet details include a 245hp Deutz engine that powers Poclain wheel motors. There are two tank sizes – 4,800- and 7,200-litres.

Aluminium Pommier booms start at 24m and run to 39m, with wider versions (up to 42m) expected next year.

As Lemken already builds mounted and trailed models, a lot of the technology has simply been converted for self-propelled service.

This includes tank and spraying software running through the CCI 1200 terminal where rate control, GPS and job management can all be set up.

 Out front, operators get a Krone-sourced cab containing a separate screen for machine readouts and spraying functions. A Cat 4 over-pressurised filtration system is standard.

The spraying system has been designed to increase output and reduce the chances of contamination.

Central to this is a high-capacity centrifugal pump, with a small secondary piston pump for the clean water system.

Having a separate pump helps keep chemical traces out of the 600-litre clean tank and makes rinsing booms more efficient.

This is the first prototype machine, but the UK will have a demo model coming over next year.
