A NEW generation of high-tech trailed-sprayers from Vicon includes the IXtrack T3 which is available with 2600 and 3200 litre tank capacities.

The new range has been engineered to deliver a low, short and highly manoeuvrable trailed sprayer which features a central frame produced from high strength, low alloyed heavy-duty steel.

It boosts a low centre of gravity with higher flexibility and durability than previous designs, making it more suited to the stresses of the field work and high-speed road transport.

Another feature is the suspended parallelogram rear frame that also remains active on the road, in addition to the field. This innovative design boosts stability with soft boom balancing to minimise spray heigh deviation above the crop canopy and improves application accuracy.

A revised tank design, new chassis and rear frame all combine to deliver an overall wifth of 2.55m and an overall height of 3.2m. The steering axle proves adjustable track width in 5cm increments from 1.5 to 2.25m.

Tyre choices for the iXtrack T3 extend up to 1.9m in diameter, giving a longer footprint for reduced compaction and it's fully ISOBUS compatible with new iXspray hardware and software.

EgroDrive headland management is part of the standard specification and allows boom raise/lower and axle steering to be managed by a single button press. Optional GEOLIFT with the advanced IsoMatch Tellus Pro terminal can transform this into an automated function, taking its commands from a GPS signal.

Nozzle control includes pneumatic or electric operation, suiting those using GPS for automatic section control and auto start/stop at headlands. The introduction of GEOSPRAY takes this a stage further, and brings individual nozzle control to the iXtrack T3.

Boom options include the HSS steel boom from 18-30m, and the HAS aluminium boom from 21-24m.
