Said to be the widest mower produced to date by Kuhn, the recently announced FC 13460RA, when used in conjunction with a FC3125DF or FC 3525DF front mower unit, offers a variable working width of 12.4 to 13.4 metres.
German cultivator, drill and sprayer manufacturer Horsch has developed two options of angled/tilted spray nozzle caps for use in band application and ridged crops.
A grey nozzle offers a 17.5-degree angle for a 10cm tilt, while, a red nozzle with 8.75-degree angle for a 5cm tilt.
The company says by using a combination of straight and angled nozzle caps, operators can achieve a broad range of row width configurations. In band spraying application, a 25cm nozzle spacing, the angled nozzles allow the row width to be adapted by 5cm (red nozzles) or 10cm (grey nozzles).
As an example, a row spacing of 45cm is possible in sugar beet. The combination of the main (HD) and secondary (ND) nozzles with a 25cm spacing is also said to provide highly-effective wetting of ridged crops. Available this season, each cap is equipped with an Agrotop RowFan 40-02 E nozzle – including seal and nozzle inserter.
