The PF front-mounted sprayer is not just a simple front-mounted tank. Its design, based on a boom sprayer, ensures it is autonomous and independent. The circuit on this sprayer includes product incorporation, mixing and rinsing functionalities. The sprayer’s sophisticated design offers the user excellent visibility at the tractor front. An easily visible, side-mounted needle gauge indicates the volume remaining in the tank.
The clever assembly of the three PF tanks not only provides a compact outline but also centralises the filling of the tanks and makes it accessible from the front of the sprayer. When using the PF Select (base tank unit), the main tank and the rinsing tank can be added to reach a volume of 1,350 litres or 1,850 litres. The sprayer also features two storage compartments at the front.
Main tank actual capacity: 1,160 or 1,660 litres
Rinsing tank capacity: 190 litres
Hand-wash tank capacity: 16 litres
With the MANUSET manual control system, you’re in perfect control when preparing the spray mixture. The intuitive controls are centralised on the left-hand side of the sprayer.
Equipped with the PM 75 or PM 125 as standard, the PF features an external intake coupling for autonomous filling.
As standard, the electrically-driven pump (22 l/min) ensures proper mixing of the spray mixture and rinsing of the main tank at the end of spraying operations. Hydraulically-driven pumps are also available and can increase the flow rate to 75 or 125 l/min. The sprayer can thus be filled autonomously and coupled to an autonomous spraying kit.
With the DILUSET system, the 2 main control valves are motorised and the PF’s main functions are controlled directly from the cab: mixing and rinsing management. The dual command on the control panel allows controlling the inlet valve.
The combination of the PF front-end sprayer and DELTIS 2 or ALTIS 2 at the rear offers several options: a single total volume or 2 capacities with 2 different products. With the PF Select version, it can also simply be used as a supply of clean water or liquid nitrogen. The two sprayers are connected by a single tube which can be used for filling, transferring spray mixture and draining rinsing residues. Coupling/uncoupling is quick thanks to the use of CAM LOCK couplings. However, the hose can remain on the tractor once it is uncoupled.
The main tank can be filled several different ways:
During spraying operations, no additional control box for managing the tanks is required. Simply press the PF logo on the rear sprayer’s terminal, and the pump automatically alternates from the rear tank to the front tank. The user can thus very easily manage the draining of the front/rear assembly and modulate the tractor’s balance as he wishes.
The PF sprayers equipped with a PM pump are ready for fitting an autonomous kit. The kit is positioned on a rear attachment (seed drill, tillage machine, etc.). The time required to change over from the PF/sprayer configuration to the PF/attachment configuration is reduced owing to the CAM LOCK quick disconnect couplings.
The RPB control box automatically adapts spraying according to the tractor’s speed, offering optimal comfort and precision. It permanently displays the flow rate (l/ha), speed and working pressure. Owing to its compact design and CAN bus harness, the installation in the cab is very simple.
Two spraying items are available for localised applications: a module for spraying applications and a module for fertilisation applications. These modules are to be adapted directly onto the seed drill unit.
