Any body have any experience with these sprayers? Looking at a 2004 model. Will go on a 6630 and a 6115r only doing about 500 acres of spraying a year.

Be careful, very careful. I ran one for 6-7 years. Was a good sprayer BUT look very carefully around the boom suspension point. Mine started cracking up and I had it welded twice. Cousin also had one of these and had similar problems. Was a good sprayer to buy new but knowing what I do I would not entertain a second hand one.

Just had a look at it seems a fair sprayer, booms and suspension in good condition been plated and welded on the main frame but is a lot stronger now.

No I don't think it's the same one, the only trouble I might have is when it folds up past the cab on the new John Deere's the new cabs are wider so only leave an inch either side.

Yeah the one I've found is 4K seems a lot of sprayer for the money.

From state-of-the-art robotics, to autonomous tractors and electronic weeding, Cereals LIVE will have it all available in video demonstrations in the brand new Innovation and Tech Demo ring, says event director, Alli McEntyre. “It’s a brave new world for farming, with innovation driving sustainability and efficiency. Being able to see the most cutting-edge technology in action will give farmers an insight into where their businesses could be headed very soon.”

So what will growers be...
