Mazzotti’s biggest self-propelled sprayers, the MAF 4240, 5240 and 6240 with tank capacities of 4,000, 5,000 and 6,000 litres, respectively, are to be fitted with John Deere’s combine cab from May 2022.
The firm’s smaller models have also been updated for next season, with new styling adding stronger one-piece side shields and a lower-profile design improving over-the-shoulder visibility to the boom from the cab.
This applies to the MAF 2580, 3180, 3580HP and 4080HP (high-performance) models with 2,500, 3,000, 3,500 and 4,000-litre tanks.
Other updates include better access to the solution tank and engine, and a new rear axle flow divider option for hydrostatic models that provides increased traction in extreme conditions or for side-hill operation.
Deere has also made Mazzotti an “endorsed brand”, which means buyers will get the same levels of product quality, parts availability and service support as with any other green machine.
The company, which became a fully owned subsidiary after its acquisition in 2017, already uses John Deere engines, cabs, the M-Spray dual-circuit solution system, and precision ag equipment.
The sprayers will, however, remain dressed in Mazzotti’s yellow livery.
