Having been on show at Agritechnica in Hannover, the new Landquip demount for the JCB 4000 Fastrac will be unveiled to UK farmers at the Midland Machinery Show on 25/26 November on Landquip’s stand, no. OS C3.
Agritechnica visitors were able to preview the all new front/rear 4000 litre combination built in JCB’s livery which attracted attention from both farmers and distributors from around the world. Two years in the making, the demountable sprayer is the first to be fitted with tri-fold booms up to 36 metres.
A new sprayer demount chassis attached to the Fastrac’s new rear platform spider frame can be demounted in around 10 minutes enabling the tractor’s versatility to be fully utilised and the farmer to quickly move on to a host of other tasks.
The latest chassis design allows Landquip’s Alu-light tri-fold boom to be fitted for the first time in widths up to 36 metres.
The aluminium tri-fold boom is available in 30, 32, 34 and 36 metre widths which are all capable of spraying at 24 metres giving farmers and contractors optimum flexibility.
A close coupled, high lift height mast facilitates good weight distribution and spray heights from 500-2400mm.
The brand new Fastrac 4000 + Landquip sprayer with front/rear tank combinations up to 4400 litres (2500 rear + 1900 front ) now represents a viable alternative for farmers and contractors wishing to consider wider booms, increased liquid capacity and high road speeds.
The latest electronics include GPS individual nozzle section switching using Landquip’s Poziflow continuous recirculation, GPS variable fertiliser application, GPS guidance, etc. As well as section switching, Landquip can offer as an option Seletron twin or quad nozzle-bynozzle spray quality control which automatically selects the most appropriate nozzle to apply at the optimum pressure.
For Fastracs equipped with Trimble auto steer, an Isobus wiring loom is offered which allows the Trimble TMX terminal to carry out all GPS switching functions.
The Umbrella liquid fertiliser nozzle available from Landquip with its wide application range and distribution pattern enhances the GPS variable rate application without the risk of scorching.
