Nimbler, versatile Deere sprayer hits Oz market
John Deere's nimbler R4023 sprayer is ideal for crop producers wanting a smaller, lighter and more affordable machine to cover more ground in less time.

The newest addition to John Deere’s 4 series sprayers features a 6.8L, 173hp Tier 3 engine; new premium cab option; wide and narrow axle configuration and the latest integrated technology to allow the application of crop care products in a timely, efficient manner.

The 8240kg R4023 will replace the existing R4630 model.

John Deere application equipment product line manager Dave Mulder says the R4023 offers the size, manoeuvrability and versatility that producers need to more easily cover smaller, irregular-sized fields.

"With ever increasing demands on producers and service providers to cover fields quickly during short application windows, the R4023 sprayer was designed to provide improved ride quality, operator comfort and productivity across a wide variety of field conditions and cropping systems."

The John Deere R4023 features four-wheel hydrostatic drive; 2271-litre poly tank and 24.4m booms that can fold to 18.3m for tight conditions.

A vibration-resistant C-channel chassis frame with a suspension dampening soft shock option promotes operator comfort and sprayer performance in rough terrain.

Other features on the new model include air springs, optional ventilated seat, additional cab soundproofing improvements, auto-levelling package and sprayer-specific CommandARM for fingertip control and monitoring of all machine functions.

John Deere has integrated its true and tested technologies into the R4023 including AutoTrac, SprayStar, BoomTrac Pro, John Deer Section Control and Return to Height.

The R4023 also features John Deere’s JDLInk machine management solution allowing customers to access machine information anytime and anywhere.

"Weighing in at 8240kg, the new R4023 sprayer is a perfect fit for cotton, corn, soybean and small-grain producers, as well as agricultural service providers wanting a smaller, versatile machine that’s easier to transport on a trailer and store," Mulder adds.

"Yet this sprayer still provides the capacity to cover fields quickly and efficiently."
