According to a recent news release, John Deere and Company has introduced the new R4045 Sprayer, its latest addition to the 4 Series that’s designed to provide agriculture service providers and large producers the ability to cover large fields quickly and efficiently.
The R4045 is replacing the 4940 Sprayer, offering high application rates, productive spray speeds, and all the technology and comfort that large-scale producers need to succeed. Dave Mulder, product line manager for John Deere application equipment, says the new sprayer offers the performance, productivity and versatility that farmers and agriculture service providers need in a rugged, fully-integrated, three-season machine. "The R4045 Sprayer was designed with the durability to handle challenging field conditions and accurately apply liquid product and dry nutrients as quickly as possible while providing the uptime, comfort and control operators demand. It's all engineered and built into this machine."
The R4045 Sprayer features a 346 horsepower Final Tier 4 PowerTech PSS 9.0L engine with four-wheel hydrostatic drive that can operate at 25 MPH while spraying or spreading and 35 MPH while in transport. The sprayer also comes standard with a 1,200-gallon solution tank and option of 90-, 100-, or 120-foot dual swing-link suspension, flat fold booms that can apply up to 230 gallons per minute with a high-flow pump and dual flow meter.
Deere hopes the latest addition to their 4 Series of sprayers will be an ideal piece of equipment for those seeking a high capacity, high performance applicator. The R4045 is designed to load faster, cover more acres in less time and apply material more accurately, simplifying the spraying process.
