Profile: Kverneland iXter sprayers

By: Chris McCullough

Kverneland has released a new range of mounted and trailed sprayers, showcasing its continued commitment to development


A new range of mounted and trailed sprayers are being added to the Kverneland portfolio, with several options available.

Choices include tractor-mounted iXter A and iXter B models with the option of additional capacity from an 1100-litre iXtra front tank, plus an extensive line-up of iXtrack trailed models comprising T3, T4, and T6 versions.

A number of optional extras across the sprayer range is available to suit the customer’s budget and requirements, including individual nozzle control, auto section control, iXclean tank washing programmes, plus prime and purge functionality, and boom line recirculation.

The iXtrack T3, T4, and T6 trailed models offer tank capacities from 2600 to 7400 litres, with a range of steel and aluminium booms extending from 18 to 40 metres.

These include twin-fold aluminium HAS and steel HSS structures from 24 to 30 metres, with wider options met using a three-part folding steel boom from 32 to 40 metres.

Choices in the new range include tractor-mounted iXter A and iXter B models

Boom performance comes from a suspended parallelogram rear frame, and working height is managed by a choice of Boom Guide ultrasonic ride height control systems.

The pinnacle is Boom Guide Pro Active, which uses three levelling sensors on the central boom section, allowing faster reaction to change in ground terrain via a central slope correction cylinder.

Wider booms, typically on 24/36-metre formats, can now be equipped with five ultrasonic sensors, which operates with two outer sensors at the wider working width and one outer sensor when operating at 24 metres. All iXtrack models are fully ISOBUS compatible.

Kverneland’s iXspray hardware and software provides the latest in application technology, and operators can take advantage of intuitive touchscreens with smart electronics to manage individual nozzle control or boom sections, boom line recirculation, and one-touch boom, spray line, and tank cleaning processes.

IsoMatch Grip adds further control, with up to 44 fully customisable functions available from a single joystick, while ErgoDrive headland management allows boom raise/lower and axle steering to be managed by a single button press on the joystick.

Nozzle control includes pneumatic or electric operation, suiting those using GPS for automatic section control and auto start/stop at headlands. Individual nozzle control is available with iXflow E, which also offers remote App control of nozzles when outside the cab to simplify pattern testing and checking nozzle flow.

Tractor-mounted iXter A models offer tank capacities from 800 to 1200 litres, with a range of booms spanning 12 to 21 metres, while the more sophisticated iXter B is available with 1000- to 1800-litre tank capacities and booms ranging from 15 to 30 metres.

A semi-automatic or fully-automatic liquid management system available with the iXtra front tank provides a fully-mounted combination boasting 3000 litres.
