Get more power with less weight with the new John Deere R4044 Sprayer. The R4044 gives you the acre-eating productivity of an R4045 Sprayer in a machine that is 9-percent lighter. The R4044 features a 1,200-gallon tank and boom widths up to 132 feet with a carbon fiber boom option. The ExactApply™ nozzle control system and integrated John Deere precision ag technology help you get the job done right, while the industry’s most comfortable cab helps you avoid fatigue.
The 1,200-gallon tank of the R4044 allows you to cover 9 more acres per hour than sprayers with a 1,000-gallon tank. The 9-percent weight reduction allows you to get in the field sooner with a better-balanced sprayer.
The John Deere ExactApply™ Nozzle Control System helps you cover more of your crop with greater precision. In pulsing mode, individual nozzle control offers up to 30 hertz frequency. In conventional mode, the A-B nozzle design automatically switches between two nozzle sizes with different flow rates to maintain the desired spray pressure range. When nozzle A hits max pressure, it switches to nozzle B automatically as you speed up. This lowers the pressure into the proper range to maintain droplet size. If you continue to speed up, it will activate both A and B nozzles, again keeping you in the proper pressure range. As you slow down it will switch back. This gives you a more consistent droplet size from each nozzle at all sprayer speed ranges.
With ExactApply you can also vary the rate across the entire boom to greatly reduce input costs and possible crop damage while assuring the right spray rate even as you make a turn. The built-in Turn Compensation feature automatically varies the application rate across the entire boom, reducing both your input costs and the risk of crop damage from over- or under-application. ExactApply features LED lighting on each nozzle and if a nozzle gets clogged, the nozzle plug detection feature tells you which nozzle needs attention.
Go beyond steel to the next frontier of boom sprayers. Introducing our carbon fiber booms. Designed to meet your need for a lighter, more productive sprayer, carbon fiber delivers higher productivity with a lower boom wing weight. Available in 120- and 132-ft. widths, this boom is the perfect solution whether you’re working row crops, small grains or specialty crops.
As weed resistance becomes more of an issue, you might find yourself making more passes through the field, both pre- and post-emerge.
Carbon fiber is significantly lighter weight than traditional steel booms, reducing boom wing weight by 39% and 35% (with the 120- and 132-ft. booms, respectively). This weight reduction serves to save your soil and sustain your yield. What’s more is that the front-to-rear machine weight balance is improved by 6%, improving in-field performance and allowing you to cover more acres.
And speaking of increasing productivity, the 132-ft. boom touts 8% more acres covered per day. This is crucial during those tight application windows when you need to cover as much ground as possible.
So why did we choose carbon fiber? The material itself is pretty remarkable. Incredibly strong and durable, it’s also easy to clean and corrosion resistant. We’ve removed 80% of painted steel, increasing the corrosion resistance in areas that are susceptible to contact with corrosive agents. Overall, carbon fiber is your answer when looking for a high-functioning, low-maintenance material.
AutoTrac™ Vision guidance solution detects the location of the crop in the row and signals AutoTrac to steer precisely between the rows in early-season corn, soybeans and cotton at least 4-6 inches high. Spraying on target lets you increase sprayer speeds from 14-18 mph, allowing you to cover more than 20% more acres every day. AutoTrac™ RowSense uses a paddle mounted to the front wheel of your sprayer to feel mature corn stalks in late-season rows. The paddle feels its way down straight 30-in. rows and uses input adjust signals to steer the wheels accordingly. Just like AutoTrac™ Vision, AutoTrac™ RowSense lets you spray faster covering more than 20% more acres each day.
Running over the row for even one second at 15 mph will take out more than 90 corn plants, which can really add up over a day. The AutoTrac™ system can help you stay on track, reducing risk of crop damage, while allowing you to cover more acres each day.
Hagie Manufacturing developed the first self-propelled sprayer, front-mounted boom, and high-clearance nitrogen toolbar. Today, Hagie specializes in providing the market with new solutions for evolving farming needs. Their products provide full-season capabilities; for example, their Nitrogen Toolbar (NTB) allows you to make application decisions later in the season, based on growing conditions. This helps increase nitrogen use efficiency since it allows nutrients to be applied when the plant needs them most, as well as helping in “rescue” situations. Hagie provides a robust product portfolio with the DTS10, STS10, STS12, STS14 and STS16 models providing a variety of options for operators.
