OLATHE, Kan. -- For the tractor-mounted sprayer market for 2017, John Deere introduces the Frontier LS11 Series 3-point Mounted Sprayers. These economical, efficient sprayers are ideal for making spray applications to pastures, small or large fields, road ditches, fence rows, specialty crops and for other types of crops and field uses.
The LS11 Series Sprayers have many features of the larger pull-type sprayers, including breakaway booms, manual and automatic controls and optional foam marker systems, that help operators reduce skips and overlaps.
According to Scott Geier, marketing manager, partnered products for John Deere, the Frontier LS11 Series Sprayers come in four different boom-width models, from 25-ft. to 40-ft. (7.62-m to 12.192-m), that customers can select from based on their application needs. 'We've designed these 3-point rear-mounted sprayers to effectively handle a wide variety of application needs, crop uses, and terrains. In addition, we made them to be easy to operate and provide the high level of application accuracy that customers expect from a rear-mounted sprayer.'
The LS11 Series Sprayers are available in two tank sizes, 250-gallon (946.3 liters) or 300-gallon (1135.6 liters); can be powered either hydraulically or by the rear power take-off (PTO); and are Category 2 or Category 3 quick-hitch compatible. For greater convenience, the heavy-duty poly tanks are specifically designed with a tear-drop shape to allow liquid to more completely drain from the sprayers.
Additional standard features of the LS11 Series Sprayers include a handheld spray wand to reach small or hard-to-access areas; integrated parking stand and fork-lift pockets to make hook up, moving and loading the sprayer easier; and wet booms that extend the life of sprayer hardware. All models come with a single nozzle body; however, a triple nozzle body is available on the 40-ft. boom sprayer.
'These sprayers can easily fit on a wide variety of tractors with 3-point hitches to make spray applications fast and effective,' Geier adds. 'More importantly, these sprayers are an affordable complement to the extensive lineup of Frontier products currently available from John Deere.'
