Tecnoma unveils new self-propelled sprayer

Tecnoma’s new Laser Evolution self-propelled sprayer has tank capacities of 3200 and 4200 litres, both with a 440-litre rinse tank and internal tank cleaning nozzles.

Steel and aluminium booms go up to 42m and the Deutz engine delivers 180hp in the Laser 3240 and 200hp in the 4240.

Hydrostatic drive is via load-sensing wheel motors with road speeds of up to 40kph. Two- and four-wheel steering is on offer as well as crab and rear-axle slope correction.

Axair suspension, together with heavy-duty articulated joints, has automatic weight compensation and under-belly clearance ranges from a standard 1.05m to 1.6m. A new panoramic cab is said to offer good visibility and rear cab access is via a hydraulic ladder.

The chemical filling area is completely enclosed, which provides a raise-and-fall chemical induction hopper with 400-litre/minute fast-fill.

The new Novaflow control system displays all the information for filling the tank and an upgrade to Novatop brings a colour monitor and easy-to-use GPS technology.
