Farmers looking to better target their herbicide applications while at the same time simplifying the process may want to take a look at the new AGCO RoGator C Series self-propelled row crop applicator and the new LiquidLogic system.
Mark Mohr, tactical marketing manager for AGCO’s application division, says the RoGator and liquid application system are designed to help operators simplify their jobs, reduce the potential for off-target applications, make cleanout faster, easier and more thorough and reduce product waste.
“With the prevalence of herbicide-resistant weeds throughout the country and the introduction of new herbicide systems to control these weeds, greater management and attention to detail will be needed for anyone applying herbicides,” Mohr adds.
The RoGator C Series chassis delivers a high level of performance. Its new all-wheel SmartDrive system will make the operator’s job easier and more efficient through a long day in the field. Cruise control gives the operator a consistent speed for accurate application and easy speed changes in the field and on the road. Shuttle shift makes changing direction fast and easy. Redesigned based on operator requests, the new joystick is compact with a comfortable, ergonomic feel.
All-wheel traction control adjusts motor displacement when a wheel starts to slip, keeping the machine moving in the field, and the anti-locking brake system (ABS) and improved hydrostatic braking deliver stopping power and speed control.
The RoGator C series is available in three models: the 1100C (1,100 gallon tank); the 1300C (1,300 gallon tank) and the 900C (900 gallon tank).
The LiquidLogic system features what the company calls FlowLogic, recirculation plumbing that keeps product moving through the boom, plumbing and filters to reduce chemical buildup and help eliminate plugged spray tips. New ClearFlow recovery, the industry’s first full-recovery system, uses air to force product from the booms or reload station back into the tank, leaving less than 2.5 gallons in systems without injection.
