AGCO introduces the RoGator C Series self-propelled row crop applicators and all-new LiquidLogic system. The new technology-loaded RoGator and liquid application system deliver innovations needed to meet the needs of today’s crop production industry, professional applicators and farmers.
“With the prevalence of herbicide-resistant weeds throughout the country and the introduction of new herbicide systems to control these weeds, greater management and attention to detail will be needed for anyone applying herbicides,” explains Mark Mohr, tactical marketing manager for AGCO’s application division. “The engineering and technology of the RoGator C Series machines and new LiquidLogic system are going to help operators simplify their jobs, reduce potential for off-target application, make cleanout faster, easier and more thorough and reduce product waste.”
The FlowLogic recirculation plumbing keeps product moving through the boom, plumbing and filters to reduce chemical buildup and help eliminate plugged spray tips. New ClearFlow recovery, the industry’s first full-recovery system, uses air to force product from the booms or reload station back into the tank, leaving less than 2.5 gallons in systems without injection, the company says. And, new self-priming booms help save time and money since product flows quickly through the entire boom once the product pump and recirculation are turned on.
Other key features of the LiquidLogic system include a “hold at minimum” pressure setting across the boom that helps ensure a consistent spray pattern to keep product on target at low speed and the ability to maintain a +/– 1 psi variation across the boom. Section control for either 35 sections with 10- or 15-inch spacing or 36 sections with 20-inch spacing are standard with the AgControl rate controller. Finally, variable displacement control of the product pump manages and limits speed to 5000 rpm to help prevent pump failure.
