Quicker cleaning for the Fendt Rogator
New features for the self-propelled sprayer include improved boom stability, electro-pneumatic nozzle bodies and a system to reduce cleaning times. The updates are available on the latest 645, 655 and 665.A separate clean water pump in the redesigned plumbing system allows the new ContiRinse system to reduce the downtime spent cleaning and rinsing the plumbing system after spraying.Making it quicker to change between products and crops, the system works on two adjustable liquid volume thresholds, with the first initiating cleaning of plumbing lines that contain chemical residues whilst the operator continues spraying. The second threshold is close to the end of the tank load and activates the full cleaning process as the tank empties.The additional clean water pump allows the pre-rinse cycle to begin whilst spraying and there is now an auto pump shutoff, which switches off the main 785l/min pump after cleaning to prevent it running dry.All Rogator models are now fitted with new Altek electro-pneumatic nozzle bodies as standard, which replace the fully electric Arag versions. These are compatible with Fendt’s OptiNozzle automatic nozzle selection system but also a single line Hypro five-way rotary, an Altek twin-line, and an Altek quad-line setup. The valves on the Rogator are now supplied by Banjo.“The changes to our spray systems will increase longevity and reliability of the machines,” comments Sam Treadgold, sales engineer for Fendt sprayers. “The new nozzle bodies don’t have diaphragms and feature no dead volume areas, so liquid or chemical residues can’t sit inside the bodies after use. The electro-pneumatic design also provides increased reliability compared with our old units.”Boom stability has been improved with six OptiSonic height sensors – previously four – to keep the booms automatically adjusted in uneven crops. The central sensor has been repositioned away from the rear axle to keep it free from debris.In the VisioCab, the Rogator now gets the option of a dedicated fridge, keeping contents chilled down to 0°c. There is an improved handsfree system with a centrally located gooseneck microphone, while stronger mirror mounts reduce vibrations on rough terrain. All improvements are available on machines ordered now.For more up-to-date farming news click here and subscribe now to profi for just £3.99 an issue.
