John Deere has announced that ExactApply™ retrofit kits for 2014-2018 model year 4-Series Sprayers are now available. These retrofit kits are designed to provide operators with greater accuracy and control of spray applications while their sprayer is in use.
The ExactApply retrofit kits are available for all R4030, R4038 and R4045 Sprayers. The kits come with nozzle bodies, new electrical boom harnessing to power and control the nozzles, and a high capacity alternator.
"Due to the ever-increasing demand for greater precision, control and documentation of spray applications, ExactApply has rapidly become a very popular option on new 4-Series Sprayers," said Doug Felter, product marketing manager for application equipment at John Deere. "Now operators of model year 2014 and newer R4030, R4038 and R4045 machines have the same ability to precisely manage droplet size and coverage of products being applied, enhancing the accuracy and efficacy of the applied products while optimizing input costs."
There are several benefits to the John Deere ExactApply retrofit-equipped sprayers. They come with LED lighting on each individual nozzle, there is full variable-rate functionality at the nozzle level, and the ability to switch between two pre-selected nozzles within the cab.
"Large producers and ag-service providers will see significant improvements in spray performance, coverage and accuracy, especially on hills, turns, point rows and irregular shaped fields,” Felter continued.
