Com­fort And Safety For Long Hours In The Field

Stanstead Journal - - LENNOXVILLE NEWS -

(NAPSA)-To­day, the aver­age U.S. farmer feeds 155 peo­ple. Part of this suc­cess is due to a group of ded­i­cated yet largely un­her­alded agri­cul­tural work­ers, the pro­fes­sional ap­pli­ca­tors who help en­sure a safe and abun­dant food sup­ply. A De­mand­ing Job They spend long hours in the field, day af­ter day, rac­ing the clock and push­ing their ap­pli­ca­tion equip­ment to the limit to spray or spread fer­til­izer and crop pro­tec­tion prod­ucts over mil­lions of farm acres. Op­er­at­ing their highly so_­phis­ti­cated ma­chines is a de_­mand­ing job that takes skill, en­durance and ded­i­ca­tion. The pro­fes­sion­als who op­er­ate _RoGa­tor self-pro­pelled sprayers from AGCO Cor­po­ra­tion, for ex­am­ple, must nav­i­gate 33-foot-long ma­chines through nar­row rows of crops, while si­mul­ta­ne­ously con­trol­ling mul­ti­ple switches and func­tions, in­clud­ing 120-foot spray booms longer than the wing­span of a mid­size com­mer­cial jet. Com­fort and Safety Ad­vances That’s why re­cent ad­vances in ap­pli­ca­tion equip­ment have fo_­cused not only on pro­vid­ing greater pre­ci­sion and pro­duc­tiv­ity, but also im­proved cab com­fort and safety. En­hance­ments to RoGa­tor in­clude: de­sign with large win­dows on all four sides, in­clud­ing a wide, panoramic front wind­shield and curved win­dows in the cor­ners. firmer foot­ing; and a lower first step from the ground onto the walk­way. - tors don’t have to reach or search for a con­trol while op­er­at­ing the ma­chine. cab vir­tu­ally dust- and odor-free. noise. com­fort­able ride over rough field ter­rain.
