Kuhn Farm Machinery has added four new models to its range of Oceanis trailed crop sprayers: the Oceanis 5002, 5602, 6902 and 7702 machines have tank capacities of 5,000, 5,600, 6,900 and 7,700 litres respectively and are available with compact, all-aluminium booms in widths of 24–48m.
The new sprayers are fully Isobus compatible, enabling them to be controlled from a single in-cab terminal (such as Kuhn’s CCI1200 or CCI50 controllers), while a separate Isoclick control box provides additional operator comfort by placing the key sprayer controls (section control, boom height and angle) within fingertip reach. The new sprayers are also Canbus compatible and can be operated via Kuhn’s Visioreb or REB3 controllers.
Each new model is available with Kuhn’s Multispray system which uses electric nozzle holders to enable in-cab nozzle selection, automatic nozzle selection to suit the forward working speed and to maximise the accuracy of variable rate applications, plus individual nozzle control to reduce overlapping.
Kuhn’s e-SET cleaning system automates the tank rinsing sequence, making the Oceanis 2 extremely safe and efficient to use, while a new Closed Transfer System (CTS) chemical induction bowl – the Easyflow system – further enhances operator safety by enabling chemicals to be added and chemical containers to be cleaned without the risk of the operator coming into contact with any harmful substances.
Kuhn’s Stopmix system automatically switches the tank’s agitator off to prevent excessive foam creation and to reduce the ‘dead volume’ of product left in the tank.
Kuhn’s self-levelling boom system – Boom Assist Total Pro – keeps the spray boom in the optimum position and height irrespective of field and crop conditions, thereby increasing spraying precision and reducing spray drift. This system is equipped with a ‘Hybrid mode’ which uses three sensors to distinguish between crop canopy and ground level, thereby improving spraying accuracy in high density crops such as oilseed rape or potatoes, or where the crop has lodged.
All four new Oceanis models are fitted with easy-rinse polyester tanks with internal baffles for improved machine stability. Drawbar, axle, parallelogram and boom suspension systems provide additional stability and boom security when spraying and during transportation.
