Irish Examiner - Farming - - MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT -

Kuhn Farm Ma­chin­ery has four new Ocea­nis trailed crop sprayer mod­els, the 5002, 5602, 6902 and 7702 with tank ca­pac­i­ties of 5,000, 5,600, 6,900 and 7,700 litres re­spec­tively. The compact, all-alu­minium, self-lev­el­ling booms are 24m to 48m wide.

The new sprayers are fully ISOBUS com­pat­i­ble for con­trol from a sin­gle in-cab ter­mi­nal.

A sep­a­rate box places key sec­tion con­trol, boom height and an­gle con­trols within fin­ger­tip reach.

The new sprayers are also CANBUS com­pat­i­ble. They are avail­able with avail­able with Kuhn’s Mul­tispray elec­tric noz­zle hold­ers for in-cab in­di­vid­ual noz­zle se­lec­tion.

The e-Set clean­ing sys­tem au­to­mates tank rins­ing. A Closed Trans­fer Sys­tem chem­i­cal in­duc­tion bowl fur­ther en­hances safety; chem­i­cals can be added and chem­i­cal con­tain­ers cleaned with­out the op­er­a­tor com­ing in con­tact with harm­ful sub­stances.

The Stop­mix sys­tem au­to­mat­i­cally switches the tank ag­i­ta­tor off to prevent ex­ces­sive foam cre­ation. Three sen­sors dis­tin­guish be­tween crop canopy and ground level, to im­prove spray­ing ac­cu­racy in high den­sity or lodged crops. The easy-rinse polyester tanks have in­ter­nal baf­fles for im­proved ma­chine sta­bil­ity. Draw­bar, axle, par­al­lel­o­gram and boom sus­pen­sion sys­tems pro­vide ad­di­tional sta­bil­ity.

The 7702, one of Kuhn Farm Ma­chin­ery’s four ad­di­tions to its range of Ocea­nis trailed crop sprayers, along with the 5002, 5602, and 6902. These have tank ca­pac­i­ties of 5,000, 5,600, 6,900 and 7,700 litres.
