Kverneland iXdrive self-propelled sprayer
”One of the reasons I bought a Kverneland iXdrive is because of the comfort of the self-propelled sprayer in combination with the functionalities of the IsoMatch Tellus terminal with IsoMatch GEOCONTROL application.
Welcome in the world of precision spraying!
Spraying jobs have often to be carried out in small time frames, so high capacity is required. The Kverneland iXdrive is an ’all in one sprayer’ offering ergonomics, efficiency and comfort. During the development there has been a big focus on reliability, durability and easy maintenance to secure a cost efficient operation.
“I am working with a HSS 40 metre steel boom with 15 different sections and iXflow circulation system. You can adjust IsoMatch GEOCONTROL in such a way that you have for example 50, 80 or 100% overlap. With the 80% overlap I am using I save up to 5% on chemicals! This means no overlap and a better crop quality on headlands and wedges, because the iXdrive quickly shuts off spraying sections at the right place on the right moment.
Another advantage of the iXdrive is that I have a very good view on the crop from the cabin, because I don’t have a tractor bonnet in front of me. I am constantly looking at the crop, so optimal view is important for me. I am driving day and night with GPS. This is possible thanks to IsoMatch GEOCONTROL. Automatically you are always in the right track. This lightens my work load, because I can stay focused on my spraying job.”
