Lamma 2019: Fendt Rogator sprayers

Whether you want a simple sprayer that gets the job done with the least amount of effort or something a lot more sophisticated, manufacturers at the Lamma show will have a solution.

We asked sprayer manufacturers for their guidance on what’s new and innovative at the 2019 show.

Fendt (Hall 9)

In-cab nozzle selection and automated tank and sprayer cleaning are features of the latest Fendt Rogator sprayers – the machines previously sold under the Challenger name.

The trailed sprayers from 3,500 to 6,930 litres and self-propelled models with 3,850- to 6,000-litre capacity have a new five-way valve that saves time by allowing water to flush chemical from the induction hopper while chemical containers are being rinsed.

An optional electric suction valve can be operated via the OptiFlow control centre, which is also used to initiate an automatic rinsing cycle for the tank and all pipes at the press of a button.

In the cab of the self-propelled versions, operators can add an optional joystick controller for functions such as rear axle steering for tight turns and side-slope compensation.

Up to 20 different nozzles sizes and types can be ordered with the machines, including an eQuadSelect nozzle body carrier that permits remote switching between four different spray tips – used individually or in combination – to access different application rates and spray options on the move.
