AGCO Corp.'s Fendt has rolled out a new machine: the Rogator 900 Series applicator.

Fendt has been progressively building a full line of farm machinery for the past several years. Including high-powered tractors, the IDEAL combine and Momentum planter, the Rogator 900 is its latest addition.

"We want Fendt to become a full-line supporter of all farmer needs. Those who want the best of the best in terms of technology, quality. We believe there are a lot of those farmers here in North America but also in South America, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and, of course, where Fendt's home is, in Europe," says AGCO CEO Eric Hansotia.

The Rogator 900 is a self-propelled, rear-mounted boom applicator with adjustable clearance. It offers operators the ability to switch between liquid and dry systems. With the push of a button, two 900 high-clearance models raise from standard clearance of 56 to 60 inches to high clearance of up to 76 inches in less than 45 seconds for late-season dry or liquid applications. The change between the liquid system and a dry spinner or pneumatic system takes less than two hours.

Additional features:

-- automated rinsing controlled from the cab

-- a variable fan with reversing function to help clear the engine cooling package of pollen and fine dust

-- dual-activated carbon filters and a pressurization fan to protect from dust, aerosols and vapors

-- EZ-Drops drop tube kit that can be added for placing late-season nitrogen and cover-crop seed below the crop canopy.

The Fendt Rogator 900 Series has five models: RG932 and RG934 (70-inch-diameter tires, 56-inch standard clearance); RG937 (80-inch tires and 60-inch standard clearance); RG934H and RG937H (high-clearance, dual-position, clearance heights of 72 inches and 76 inches, respectively).

All models have AGCO Power 8.4-liter engines, 315 hp to 365 hp, with liquid capacities ranging from 900 to 1,300 gallons or dry spinner systems with capacities ranging from 253 to 330 cubic feet. Fendt offers steel booms of 90-, 100- and 120-foot lengths with 10-, 15- and 20-inch nozzle spacing. An optional aluminum 132-foot boom, 5% lighter than a 120-foot steel boom, is also available.
