Evaluating a sprayer to purchase can be a difficult decision — similar to a car purchase, different features, controls,
and handling can appeal to different people. Although certain features are musthaves when considering options — like size and width of the machine to accommodate different sizes of fields and roads — many other subjective factors are equally as important.
Buyers need to consider how the machine handles while driving, where the boom sits, where controls are set in the cab, how easy it is to add chemicals and water, ease of rinsing, how nozzles are changed, boom shutoff capabilities, and more. Ag in Motion TM puts all worries to rest by allowing farmers to test drive a number of different sprayers to make purchasing decisions or reinforce previous decisions. The Sprayer Ride & Drive simulates a pass through a field — drivers will have 1,500 feet to accelerate and see the speed at which the sprayer can travel and evaluate its handling before turning around. Drivers can monitor the spray pattern, boom movement, and feel how
the machine handles in a real-world situation.
Self-propelled sprayers from John Deere, New Holland, Apache Sprayers, Versatile, and AGCO will be available to test drive daily from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
