Agritechnica: Electric power for sprayer

Agritechnica: Electric power for sprayer

Amazone is showing a raft of new kit at Agritechnica including some interesting sprayer developments. Arguably the highlight is an electrically powered concept UX eSpray, which has a power requirement of 17kW and does away with the need for any hydraulic or pto power. It also sports a novel system that has LEDs on each nozzle illuminating the spray pattern.
Another part of the concept is the pre-mix system, which was first seen two years ago but is now gathering momentum to reach the market. All of the chemicals are added to a single 400-litre tank to create the desired cocktail. This mix is then sucked out and added to the water as it's required, so that no chemical ever goes into the main tank.
One item making its way on to the market is the new UX6200 Super, a trailed sprayer with a capacity of 6,600 litres. This model can be fitted with booms measuring up to 40m and can be shod on 520/85R42 rubber, helping to distribute the total loaded weight of 12,000kg. Simon Brown, of Amazone UK, adds that when fully loaded there's 2,600kg on the drawbar, which aids traction and stability when travelling at 40km/hr on the road.
