A larger product tank and improved suspension components will help the Case IH Patriot self-propelled sprayer range go further and last longer in 2019, the company says.

The 2019 model Case IH Patriot 4430 Sprayer, the flagship model of the series, will have a 6000 litre product tank, up from the 4542l tank on the existing model – though customers will still have the smaller option.

The addition of the larger tank has meant lighting changes to accommodate its increased height, Case says, creating the fringe benefit of eliminating light reflection back into the cab and moving the boom lights forward above the cab to allow for better lighting of the full boom.

Case’s increased focus on suspension components has resulted in the bushing material being replaced with High Strength Nylon (greaseless), while a centred pin design allows for 7 per cent greater bearing area, improving the life of the component.

The company’s sprayer product manager for Australia and New Zealand, Alyx Selsmeyer, says the updates will help the Patriot range to remain a top choice in the self-propelled sprayer market.

"These updates are in response to feedback from Case IH customers and designed to make the Patriot even more reliable and efficient in the field, giving producers the peace of mind they need when it comes to the demands of running a profitable business," he says.

"Our 2230, 3330 and 4430 series comfortably meet the demands of a variety of environments, while integrating technology and ergonomics for optimal productivity."

The Patriot product line-up will continue to offer Non-Aim Command, Aim Command Flex and Aim Command Flex S technology options, with boom size options of 24.4 metres or 27.4m on the Patriot 2230 and 30.5m or 36.6m on the Patriot 3330 and 4430 models.
