RoGator - Model 1396C - Sprayers
The emission compliant CAT C-9 Series 8.8-litre engine meets Stage 3B/ Tier IIIA requirements, while operation can be fuelled with Biodiesel. The robust drive-train incorporates a seven-speed gearbox, via a hydrostatic and hydraulic wheel motor system, each of which benefits from a gear reduction hub. This ensures more engine power impacts on the ground and allows the operator to align the speed range to field conditions. In the initial gear range, power is balanced equally between front and rear axles for optimum performance in difficult field conditions, beyond which power distribution switches to a 40/60 ratio, if wheel-slip threatens. Separate hydraulic wheel motors and gear hubs significantly extend the working life of hydrostatic components, resulting in lower running costs.
