NAVIGATOR - Class leading precision sprayer
Available in 3000, 4000, 5000 & 6000L capacities with wide booms and DynamicFluid4 pressure-based rate control to improve productivity and optimised application efficiency. NAVIGATOR is designed to cope with the toughest broadacre and row crop spraying conditions. It has the lowest centre of gravity in its class, with the tank and chassis completely integrated. The front platform provides easy access to the lid. A 450L rinse tank is positioned over the axle for best weight distribution and stability. A wide range of booms are available to suit a variety of broadacre spraying applications: EAGLE 18 to 30m, TR4 Aluminium 24 to 30m and B3 Major 36.5 m and FORCE 30 to 36 m. Adjustable axle options - 1.8 to 2.25 m and fixed 3 m axle options offer excellent crop clearance of 73 to 82 cm, depending on tyre equipment.
User Friendly WorkZone
The WorkZone has all the primary functions needed to operate the sprayer. Everything is located within easy reach, in a simple and logical way. Filling and cleaning is controlled by two colour coded SmartValves. A high capacity EasyClean suction filter is monitored by an external gauge, and the CycloneFilter ensures only the cleanest fluid gets to the nozzles.
The fluid system is powered by a self-priming diaphragm pump that can run dry without risk of damage. DynamicFluid4 pressure based rate control maintains the predetermined target rate, whether sections are active, while changing sprayer speed, or turning in and out of headlands. Regular valve lag is history! Chemical transfer is fast and safe using the optional TurboFiller or VACnMIX chemical transfer hopper. Optional Venturi FastFill and Filtered FastFill systems are available for tank filling.
AutoHeight control option for NAVIGATOR with B3, TR4 or FORCE booms, provides stress-free boom height control as it delivers better application and reduces spray drift by maintaining a preselected boom height from the ground or crop. It features:
• 3 or optional 5 precision ultrasonic sensors
• Crop, Hybrid and Soil mode
• Proportional valve control
• 20 km/h operation speed
AutoHeight improves application by keeping the boom at the right height off the ground or crop saving the operator from adjusting the boom height, tilt and slant on-the-go and takes the stress out of having to monitor the boom position in anticipation of frequent terrain changes.
Capacity Chemical Filling
Chemical mixing and transfer is fast and easy with optional high capacity TurboFiller or VACnMIX hopper. The TurboDeflector in the TurboFiller creates a powerful liquid vortex to mix chemicals quickly and safely. VACnMIX utilises a vortex mixing action, and is equipped with a vacuum attachment for closed chemical transfer systems. Both systems have been developed to handle large quantities of powders and liquids.Their high capacity is due to a combination of high vacuum suction and vortex action inside the hopper. A spring loaded bracket enables the hopper to drop down into operating position easily, and locks it back into place for transport.
The DynamicFluid4 system will instantaneously calculate and adjust regulation for increases in RPM. The DynamicFluid4 uses 4 sensors in the fluid system - measuring RPM, position of regulation valves, flow and pressure. The sensors of DynamicFluid4 each have their individual roles in the fluid system, but they can also provide redundancy for each other. Combined with brand new control software and a new, unique ceramic regulation valve, DynamicFluid4 is provides the best precision and performance available on the market today.
