New High-Capacity Nutrient Applicator Available from John Deere
Company introduces more rugged, comfortable, high-volume variable-rate applicator
OLATHE, Kansas (June 1, 2016) – To help ag service providers and large-scale producers apply fertilizer and lime to more acres per day during short, busy application seasons, John Deere introduces the F4365 High Capacity Nutrient Applicator.
This new machine offers increased capacity with a 330 cubic foot New Leader dry spinner spreader that can apply fertilizer at rates up to 1100 lbs. per acre and lime at rates up to 6600 lbs. per acre. Another important feature is the machine's ability to variable-rate apply up to four different products during a single pass, with spreader widths of 60 to 90 feet.
The F4365 High Capacity Nutrient Applicator is powered by a John Deere PowerTech™ PSS 9L engine and features an IVT transmission. These machines integrate the latest in technology, including a new Generation 4 CommandCenter™ Display with SpreadStar™, AutoTrac™, and Section Control at your fingertips.
These machines are also equipped with JDLink™ Connect with Service Advisor Remote and Wireless Data Transfer to connect your fleet. AgLogic is available to optimize the machine with the tendering fleet and maximize productivity. All this is designed to ensure accurate product placement and make it seamless and easy to collect and transfer important data.
"We've designed the F4365 to be the best-in-class high capacity nutrient applicator in terms of performance and productivity in the field," says Dave Mulder, product manager with John Deere Crop Care. "We've improved the overall durability, ride quality, and operation of this machine, and extended service intervals to make service and maintenance easier – all to increase uptime in the field."
In addition, John Deere has enlarged and enhanced the operator environment with a CommandView™ III cab, making it more comfortable and quieter for operators spending long days running over rough field conditions. Plus, the company has improved seat swivel and added cameras to give operators better visibility to the field, dry box and rear spreader pattern. These new machines have a 46 mph (74 km/h) road transport speed and up to a 30 mph (48.3 km/h) application speed, reducing the time it takes to get between fields and over fields.
"The versatility, dependability and productivity of the F4365 applicator is what sets it apart from other self-propelled applicators," Mulder adds. "Service providers and large-scale producers can cover more acres faster, and in greater comfort, with the ability to variable rate apply up to four different fertilizers in a single pass."
