To see this machine in action and to try it yourself please speak to Agrifac UK at The CropTec Show 2018


Chafer Interceptor

Built with the highest quality components, the Chafer Interceptor brings new levels of efficiency and usability to the medium sized self propelled market. A powerful 240hp Deutz engine coupled to the advanced Bosch Rexroth CVT transmission keeps fuel use low and ensures traction is maximised on individual wheels in all field conditions. When on the road the engine uses the minimum revolutions to achieve the chosen forward speed, this keeps fuel use low and engine noise down. The operators environment is both spacious, comfortable and designed for maximum productivity. Chassis and spray pack layouts offer market leading stability by keeping the centre of gravity low, whilst retaining excellent accessibility for operation and servicing.


Fendt Rogator 600

The self-propelled machine for professionals

In the plant protection sector, there’s one name that gives you precise boom control, easy handling and optimal, reliable application: Rogator. Our many years of experience and a number of key technologies have all gone into our innovative plant protection self-propelled machine, the Rogator 600, to create the perfect all-round solution.

HORSCH Leeb 5 LT

The HORSCH Leeb 4 LT, 5 LT and 6 LT trailed sprayers feature plastic tanks with 4, 5 and 6,000 litre capacities respectively and all feature the BoomControl Pro system.  At the heart of HORSCH’s sprayer innovation is BoomControl Pro, an advanced boom system designed to keep the boom as close to the crop as possible, less than 40cm at up 30kph over hilly terrain. HORSCH research shows that distance from the crop is the key factor in reducing drift and increasing crop penetration, allowing farmers to make the most of valuable herbicides and pesticides.

Three specification levels are available with the entry-level ECO model equipped with a piston diaphragm pump with manual operated valves for suction and pressure side. Above this is the CCS model, which features the automatic internal Continuous Cleaning System, while the CCS Pro model is equipped with a modern electronic system at the suction and pressure side similar to the premium equipment level of the Leeb GS spraying technology. All models have a 500 litre fresh water tank.

Leeb LT boom widths range between 18m and 42m, with the new larger boom widths up to 42m also available for the Leeb GS. The ISOBUS operating concept is an in-house development and incorporates innovative functions that ease adjustment, operation and control of the machine. Nozzle switching can be easily controlled with combinations of 1-0 (nozzle per 50cm) to 4-2 (4 nozzles per 50cm plus 2 nozzles per 25cm). When combined with BoomControl’s target area height of 30 cm, this significantly reduces drift and improves plant wetting.

The optional steering axle uses its own gyroscope removing the need for cable or mechanical connection to the tractor. Only the hydraulic system, road lights and ISOBUS plug is now required. In addition, the Leeb LT is equipped with Load Sensing hydraulics to assist the hydraulic systems of the tractor. The underbody is completely smooth for plant protection with a ground clearance of 85 cm and a hydraulic support for parking leg is standard equipment.

McConnel Agribuggy A280

Introducing the Agribuggy A280 – McConnel’s new high-performance self-propelled crop sprayer. Light, compact, and highly manoeuvrable, it delivers a greater power to weight ratio and better fuel economy than any of its rivals.

Its unique low ground pressure design, just 8psi, enables operators to go where other sprayers can’t – working in wet conditions and tough terrain – allowing safe, productive working earlier and later in the year.

And with positive mechanical drive and perfect weight distribution – no other mainstream machine can match it for consistent grip and traction – making it one of the safest and most productive sprayers on the market.

To take a closer look and learn more about the Agribuggy A280 visit McConnel on stand number 1.76 where the team will be more than happy answer your questions.


Vicon iXtrack T

The new Vicon  iXtrack T sprayers are precise, easy and effective. The iXtrack T is developed with focus on a short, low and compact design in combination with intelligent electronics and ease of use, with tank sizes of 2600 to 4600 litres. The 32 degree steering angle and 3.6m turning radius makes the iXtrack T very flexible and solid.  It is ISOBUS compatible making it easy to operate and means easy plug and play with the IsoMatch Tellus GO or PRO or any other AEF certified terminal. The iXspray hardware and software with intuitive touch interface guarantees a user friendly operation. The parallelogram combines optimal stability with soft boom balancing and limited vertical movement to minimise spray height deviations. The position of the tanks, hoses, valves and drains is optimised to minimise rest liquid. iXclean prevents unintended residual from entering the environment and ensures a clean working space.

Vicon are working closely with Ei Operator (https://eioperator.com/)  to inform and educate every UK sprayer operator by giving them easy access to the only dedicated, online resource, delivering essential information and training.
