Upgrades to Patriot sprayer range for 2019

By Dairy News

A BIGGER tank and upgraded components are among the latest updates to the Case IH Patriot self-propelled sprayer range.

The 4542 litre fuel tank on the Patriot 4430 has been replaced with a larger 6000 litre tank. Customers still have the option of the 4542 litre tank which comes with certain tyre sizes.

The addition of the larger tank has meant lighting changes to accommodate the increased height of the tank.

Light reflection back into the cab has been eliminated and the boom lights have been moved forward, above the cab, allowing for better lighting of the full boom.

An increased focus on suspension components has resulted in the bushing material being replaced with high strength nylon (greaseless). Additionally, a centred pin design allows for sev per cent greater bearing area, improving the life of the component.

“The Case IH Patriot sprayer range continues to be a top choice in the self-propelled sprayer market,” Case IH sprayer product manager for Australia/New Zealand Alyx Selsmeyer said.

“Our 2230, 3330 and 4430 series comfortably meet the demands of a variety of environments, while integrating technology and ergonomics for optimal productivity.

“These updates are in response to feedback from Case IH customers and designed to make the Patriot even more reliable and efficient in the field, giving producers the peace of mind they need when it comes to the demands of running a profitable business.”

The Patriot product line-up will continue to offer Non-Aim Command, Aim Command Flex and Aim Command Flex S technology options, with boom size options of 24.4 m or 27.4 m on the Patriot 2230 and 30.5 m or 36.6 m on the Patriot 3330 and 4430 models.
