Trailblazer-Pro Makes Debut

Trailblazer-Pro Makes Debut


Knight Farm Machinery is further improving its flagship TrailBlazer range of trailed sprayers with the introduction of the ‘PRO’ range, which adds a number of innovations, including fitting all machines with a sprung drawbar.

Other Trailblazer-Pro innovations include design and equipment upgrades and a range of ideas that will benefit operators.

Offering a sprung drawbar means the sprayer now matches the tractor pulling it, says David Main, Sales Manager:

“This provides some greater forgiveness between the tractor and the sprayer which will ensure a more even ride and possibly faster travel speeds on the road. It will also protect the sprayer against some of the stresses it will be subjected to in work”.

Other innovations include simplified plumbing, an air purge system, auto-clean water tank fill and a new induction hopper that aid effective cleaning the machine after work, and minimise risks to both the operator and environment.

Moving the pump and filters to the back of the chassis – immediately adjacent to the boom – simplifies the machine’s plumbing and reduces the pipework by several metres, which minimises the residual volume of liquid left in the system.

Combined with a new air purge system that enables operators to return any liquid remaining in the supply pipe to the storage tank when filling is complete, this greatly reduces wastage and spill risks.
And at the end of spraying the system can be used to purge the boom and all pipework, so any remaining spray solution is safely discharged onto the cropped area.

The range’s new mixing hopper is circular rather than rectangular, which aids more efficient mixing and cleaning.

All machines feature the company’s Fluid Control Pro system, which enables operators to control filling, spraying and washing out functions, either when standing at the filling station or from the tractor cab.
The ISOBUS integrated display at the filling station displays information like application rates, field size and % overlap, and uses that information to calculate the volume of product needed and manage the filling operation, allowing the operator to concentrate on loading the chemical.

Many customers can attest to the time saving offered by Knight’s boom-mounted nozzle checking and cleaning system. The kit includes all main consumable spares and the protective equipment the operator needs to use to fit them.

It features a pneumatic system to clean out blocked nozzles and a ‘remote control key fob’ to enable operators to test cleaned nozzles while standing at the boom, rather than having to replace it and return to the tractor/sprayer cab to complete the task. The kit costs from £495 depending on boom width.

KNIGHT is also introducing a new LED under-boom lighting system, which uses powerful BlueBeam LED spot lights with 2,700 effective lumen, which enable operators monitor spraying in low light conditions and enable them to make best use of available working windows.

For sprayers up to 24m two lights are fitted to the machine’s back frame (total cost £353), while for wider machines another pair of lights is added half way along the beam (£706).
Trailblazer-Pro recommended price from £78,303 for a 3,600 litre tank and 24 metre boom.

Knight Farm Machinery introduces the Trailblazer-Pro flagship trailed sprayers which includes a number of innovations, including a sprung drawbar which means the sprayer is well equipped for faster tractors, says David Main, Sales Manager:

“This provides some greater forgiveness between the tractor and the sprayer which will ensure a more even ride and possibly faster travel speeds on the road. It will also protect the sprayer against some of the stresses it will be subjected to in work”.

Other innovations include simplified plumbing, an air purge system, auto-clean water tank fill and a new induction hopper, simplifying machine cleaning after work, and minimise risks to both the operator and environment.

Moving the pump and filters to the back of the chassis – immediately adjacent to the boom – simplifies the machine’s plumbing and reduces the pipework by several metres, which minimises the residual volume of liquid left in the system.

A new air purge system enables operators to return any liquid remaining in the filling pipe to the storage tank when filling is complete. This greatly reduces wastage and spill risks particularly when working with liquid fertilizer.
And at the end of spraying the system can be used to purge the boom and all pipework, so any remaining spray solution is safely discharged onto the cropped area.

The range’s new mixing hopper is circular rather than rectangular, which aids more efficient mixing and cleaning. A continuous wall of water circulates around the outside of the hopper during filling and a high pressure mixing jet at the base of the hopper ensures good mixing and induction of powders.

All machines feature the company’s Fluid Control Pro system, which enables operators to control filling, spraying and washing out functions, either when standing at the filling station or from the tractor cab.
The ISOBUS integrated display at the filling station displays information like application rates, field size and % overlap, and uses that information to calculate the required filling volume and automatically switch off the filling at the right level, allowing the operator to concentrate on loading the chemical. The system also allows the setting of filling pauses.

Many customers can attest to the time saving offered by Knight’s boom-mounted nozzle checking and cleaning system. It features a pneumatic system to clean out blocked nozzles and a ‘remote control key fob’ to enable operators to test cleaned nozzles while standing at the boom.

Knight Farm Machinery is further extending its flagship Trailblazer range of trailed sprayers with the introduction of an entry level model which will bring high quality performance to farmers working on a tight budget.
The new Trailblazer-LITE features a 3,600 litre spray tank and 24 metre gull wing boom, fitted with single nozzle bodies on a stainless steel spray line. Chemical induction hopper, clean water tank, hand wash and PPE locker are also included in the standard specification.
Other standard features include a Muller Smart 430 control box, that manages the main sprayer functions including boom hydraulics, automatic steering axle and application rate control via a single terminal, which removes the need for multiple control boxes in the tractor cab.
The sprayer has air suspension with automatic ride height control and automatic hillside correction via a steering axle, so it rides smoothly, maintains even boom height and tracks to the tractor accurately across all slopes, with the steering axle also ensuring it makes neat headland turns.
It also features Knight’s MAXImiser plumbing system with pressurised circulation which primes the spray line prior to spraying and purges it with clean water afterwards.
Additionally this system reduces the volume of liquid in the pipework, aiding effective and complete cleaning with any spray solution remaining at the end of work being simple to dispose of on the crop.
On farm starting price for the new model is expected to be around £51,000.
