PATRIOT SERIES – 4 MODELS FROM 18,3 TO 36,5 M BOOM
The cab-forward, rear-engine configuration gives Case IH Patriot sprayers their distinctive look and their performance edge. This design puts the static weight of the cab and engine over the front and rear axles. The dynamic weight of the product tank is in the center of the machine, so there is more even weight distribution when the tank is full and the booms are out.
THE NEW PATRIOT 250 EXTREME SPRAYER
Case IH has introduced its new Patriot 250 Extreme sprayers as the entry-level option in the four-model Patriot range, offering an easier step-up to self-propelled spraying for farmers who previously had to rely on tractor-pulled sprayers. The right and left booms of the new Patriot are independent, with a total span of 27 meters and the boom height can be varied from 60 to 220 cm fewer passes and a greater sprayed area. The booms are fed by a 2,500-litre solution tank and a 280-litre rinse tank, with a 36.5-litre chemical eductor. The 1.7 metre-high chassis affords best-in-class ground clearance of 1.6 metres, making it possible to work in taller crops. For the flexibility needed when spraying different crops, the wheel track can be varied from 250 to 305 cm. It is powered by a strong and proven FPT 4.5-litre in-line four-cylinder engine with common rail injection and a turbo intercooler, this makes 177 horsepower. To put all of this power to good use, traction assist for the 4×4 hydraulic transmission is standard.
Patriot® Series sprayers deliver the right rate and droplet size not only across the entire boom, but also the entire field, all season, every season. A stable spray platform delivers product consistently across varied conditions. The cab-forward, rear-engine Patriot sprayer design means even weight distribution across the machine, getting growers into the field earlier while causing less soil compaction and maximizing on tight operating windows.
Case IH sprayers offers choices of boom widths and options to fit any application and built with the rugged and durable parallel-link design. The advanced boom and boom suspension provide superior strength without excessive weight. The parallel-link design delivers the versatility retailers and producers need with a 152-centimeter (60-inch) range of motion for spraying pre-plant, post-tassel or anytime in between. This design also maintains boom position at all speeds, including high-speed turns. Patriot booms offer greater durability and longer service life.
COMFORT BOOSTS ACRES PER DAY
When application windows are narrow and every hour in the field counts, operator comfort isn’t a luxury — it’s a necessity. The Patriot sprayers are designed to let you work longer with less fatigue. The ergonomically designed, line-of-sight instrumentation positions your critical operating functions right up front. The pressurized cabs keep the inside air fresh, while the automatic temperature control and sunshades keep you cool and comfortable. The air ride seat is adjustable for position, ride firmness and lumbar support.
AIM COMMAND FLEX : SUPERIOR SPRAY TECHNOLOGY
Get the most out of every tankful, every hour and every acre with AIM Command FLEX advanced spray technology. This superior spray system enhances your productivity thanks to its advanced control over product flow and pressure. It is more precise than conventional rate controllers are and operates 36 separate “virtual” boom sections, delivering the ultimate in spray accuracy and precision. The ability to control more boom sections helps reduce over-application that adds costs and potential crop damage to increase your production potential while reducing per-acre operating costs.
AUTOBOOM : INCREASE ACCURACY AND COVERAGE
AutoBoom Automatic Boom Height control detects changes in terrain and adjusts the booms height accordingly. Entirely automatic the system decreases operator fatigue, along with machine wear and tear. AutoBoom also increases application accuracy and coverage. Plus, it can be configured with additional ultrasonic sensors or gauge wheels to maintain a level spray platform and maximize boom life.
PRECISION FARMING AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
The AccuBoom Automatic Boom Section control system automatically turns off boom sections when they enter an area that has already been sprayed. When leaving the applied area, the section sprayers are turned back on. AccuBoom is operated simply, through the AFS Pro 700 display in combination with the GPS system. It is standard on all Case IH Patriot models. AutoBoom Automatic Boom Height control detects changes in terrain and adjusts the booms height accordingly. Entirely automatic the system decreases operator fatigue, along with machine wear and tear
PRECISION FARMING AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
The optional AFS Pro 700 display puts total control at your fingertips. Its large, bright touchscreen display allows you to monitor and control guidance functions and application rate as well as track ground speed, acres covered and other variables. The AFS Pro 700 sprayers also integrates seamlessly with Case IH Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) software to store, view and manage precision farming data, helping you adjust for in-field variability and improve yield potential.
