Kubota has introduced a new mounted field sprayer range. This new mounted sprayer has been given the name Kubota XMS1 and is added to the existing XMS2 mounted field sprayer range.
The Kubota XMS1 is available with 800, 1000 and 1200 litre tank capacity in combination with two different boom types: the HOSA aluminium spray boom with the advanced Z-folding principle and a complete new generation of the well-known HC steel boom range. Using Domex steel for the boom it became stronger, but lighter to contribute to the lower weight of the machine. Operation can be made easy with the simple electric Remote Control or the easy-to-use FlowMate Control spray computer from Kubota.
Optimal Weight Balance
The main features of the XMS1 mounted sprayer are the lower weight, compared to the XMS2 series, and a close gravity point to the tractor. This gives an optimal weight distribution, even in combination with small tractors.
Fulfil Customer Requirements
“With the XMS1 we show that we are working on the development of our mounted sprayer range and that our range will be extended with new models”, says Jeroen van Turenhout, Product Manager Crop Care. He continues: “With the XMS1 we would like to enter the medium segment of the market and fulfil customer requirements for a smaller and lighter, but professional sprayer”.
