Modern Flow Equipment has unveiled the new Field-Hawk. Features include the innovative Field Fold boom system and a breakthrough air-ride suspension system that maximizes crop row clearance.
The sprayer has the industry's highest horsepower engine and highest wheel motor torque ratings, computerized all-wheel drive with antislip traction control and highway-mode autoshift, optional all-wheel steering, a stiffer, more durable frame with an oscillating front axle and other features — including an optional on-board anemometer to measure wind speed.
You can choose the features that make the most sense for your farm on the new RoGater 874. Options like manual track adjust and a polyethylene product tank provide the ability to build the machine specifically for each operation's needs, allowing growers to simply pay for the features they need. Performance features, however, come standard.
The RoGator 874 boom options include 60/80 ft., 90 ft. and 100 ft., providing the flexibility to fit both small and large field operations. Controller options accommodate anything from simple, single-product, straight-rate application to multi-product, variable-rate jobs.
MXM SERIES TRACTORS
Case IH has added two new configurations to the MXM Series Maxxum tractor line, the MXM130 and MXM140.
The MXM130 offers a 105 PTO hp rating, while the MXM140 has a 115 PTO hp. Both are powered by a 7.5L engine. The 20F×16R transmission provides four ranges, five synchronized gears and 12 speeds in the 2-8 mph working range. A smooth-operating, synchronized shuttle delivers fast cycle times when performing repetitive tasks. The power transfer includes a heavy-duty, 13-in. clutch assembly for added durability under tough working conditions.
The new models include an open center hydraulic system with a 14 gpm implement pump and a separate 10.5 gpm steering pump for ample flow when operating tillage or harvesting equipment.
Gorgonz Performance Work Gear introduces the new waterproof Winter Pro 475 glove with an engineered microporous liner that's 100% waterproof, yet allows hands to breathe.
The outer layer of the palm is made from Toughtek, which helps retain your grip when handling wet materials and Extreme Grip synthetic leather, which stays flexible even after exposure to wet conditions. The glove's middle layer is a 100% waterproof liner that not only repels water, but allows moisture from sweaty hands to escape.
Delavan Ag Pumps introduces HD Magnum series centrifugal pumps. Those hydraulically driven cast iron and stainless steel pumps provide fluid flow up to 245 gpm and pressure to 145 psi at temperatures of up to 140°. They are available in open and closed hydraulic system configurations. The pump features oversized bearings and front and rear wear rings that balance the impeller and maximize bearing life.
Redball's Model 680 high-clearance trailer sprayer has been redesigned to improve maneuverability and increase productivity by reducing fill times and increasing flow rates. The sprayer also offers an optional axle suspension system.
The axle suspension system uses Redball's patented rubber torsion (Henschen) suspension, which harnesses two parallel-linked rubber torsion systems and provides up to 6 in. of travel.
The sprayer's redesigned frame features higher-capacity 2-in. full-port plumbing to the pump, a 11/2-in. regulating valve and 11/2-in. plumbing to the Banjo ball valves. Banjo ball valves have been relocated from the front of the sprayer to the boom center section for quicker response time. The sprayer also features a larger Raven 60-P flow meter with 2-in. flanged fittings and a 1-60 gpm flow rate.
The sprayer is available with a 1,600-gal. tank, which has a long, ultra-deep sump. Booms are available from 60 to 100 ft. wide. Axles, which come with 10-bolt hubs, are available in 72- to 120-in. variable widths, as well as fixed widths. An offset walking tandem axle also is available. The axle suspension option is available only on fixed-width axles.
Hard, compacted soil just met its match with the new LaserRip Extreme ripper points from John Deere. These ripper points are longer, heavier and more durable than the previous line of LaserRip points.
New features on the LaserRip Extreme include a thicker and longer top point for increased wear life. The patented, enlarged mounting holes provide added protection and retention. And the patented single-piece carbidic ductile iron design withstands abrasion and high impact for less breakage and repair costs. The Extreme ripper points are offered in 2¾-, 5-, 7- and 10-in. wide wings and can fit John Deere as well as Brillion, Case IH, DMI, Krause, Landoll, New Holland and Wil-Rich machines with 1¼-in parabolic standards.
