AGCO company, Challenger’s RG600D self-propelled sprayer (models RG635D, RG645D and RG655D) were at Cereals and can now be used with several new precision farming features, said the company.

The in-house developed application control for example can be connected with a Yara N-sensor for ‘on the go’ control of the application rate depending on the sensor’s reading.

And, the TaskDoc Pro documentation system provides wireless data-exchange between the vehicle and office, while the TaskDoc Variable Rate Control (VRC), a map based product application, provides optimum usage of fertiliser and crop spray.

The RG600D is also the first machine to use AGCO’s newly-developed global cab which is 22% (32cm) wider than previous RoGators.

The largest workplace in the industry has a larger front windscreen of 1.34 sq m (around 90% bigger) – greatly improving visibility at the front, while a flatter, wider and curved design of the rear windows help improve visibility of the booms.

A twin screen terminal from the RG600C has been replaced by the RoGator Management Centre with standard single or option of double 10.2-inch screens.

The fuel and ad-blue tanks have also been redesigned and incorporated in the new front bumper and the size of the diesel tank has increased from 230 to 320 litres.

All are telemetry ready with Auto Steer as standard, with the flexibility to connect to most RTK networks, including Trimble.

Challenger’s first trailed sprayer, RG300, will be on static display at the show. Initially available in two models – the RG333 and RG344, the last two digits referring to the tank capacity of 3300 and 4400 litres, respectively – this shares two-thirds of its technology with the RG600s.

This sharing includes the spray boom and suspension system, centre frame, boom lift arm, all plumbing and chemical induction hopper. A specially-made drawbar and tank allows it to be adjusted to suit all tractors and tyre sizes.

It uses load-sensing hydraulics and is fully ISOBUS compatible. An optional pto-powered pump is available for users looking to tow the RG300 behind tractors lacking load-sensing hydraulics or prevent mixing of oil when using different tractors during the season.
