Knight: Entry-level trailed sprayers launched

By WniF editors

Knight Farm Machinery’s new Xplorer Series 3 offers potential customers a well-specified entry-level trailed sprayer, designed and equipped with the medium-scale arable farmer in mind.

The machines will be available with either 3,000- or 4,000-litre spray tanks, with 12m to 28m self-levelling hydraulic booms.

From the basic specification models upwards, the range will feature a good selection of equipment, designed to ensure that users can achieve excellent spray applications, sales manager David Main said.

“Xplorer sprayers are robust machines that combine quality components and engineering to produce a reliable machine that will perform effectively, but be relatively simple and cost-effective to operate and maintain,” he added.

The spray tanks are made of moulded polyethelene and equipped with a remote drain, a 300- or 400-litre clean water rinse tank complete with a rota flush tank rinse nozzle, and a 40-litre chemical induction hopper fitted with Arag ergonomic control valves.

The Knight Series 3 self-levelling booms feature full electro-hydraulic control of boom height, fold and tilt, which ensures it maintains accurate height and spray applications.

The booms are fitted with 19mm stainless steel spray lines and served with an auto-recirculation prime and purge system. Triplet or Quin nozzle bodies are supplied together with a set of fan nozzles. The machine is powered by a 300 lit/min Bertolini six-cylinder diaphragm pump.

Control is via an Arag Delta 80 control terminal with a 21cm colour screen. This enables the operator to work with a range of systems that include an automatic application rate controller; a 3G communication system; EGNOS and RTK receivers; DGPS guidance and Seletron auto individual nozzle control. It also facilitates joystick control of boom movement functions and spray control.

The machine has self-levelling and anti-yaw suspension. It’s also fitted with a heavy-duty axle (with 340/85R48 wheels) with combined leaf spring and air suspension, and an Axle-Trak auto steering axle system with a slope/tilt sensor.
