Caiman exports Allison-equipped, self-propelled sprayer


Caiman, an Argentinian company dedicated to the production and commercialisation of sprayers and other agricultural machinery, recently made its first export to Australia – a self-propelled sprayer featuring an Allison 2500 transmission. The benefits of fully automatic transmission technology are especially well-suited to the agricultural sector, an industry that appreciates advantages in efficiency and productivity.

The self-propelled sprayer mists expansive planted fields with fertilisers and other liquids, using a 3,650 litre tank. Caiman has been equipping machines with Allison Automatics featuring continuous power technology for over a year, delivering superior performance with uninterrupted power to the drive wheels.

Though the exported sprayer with a working width of 36m and a 1.5m clearance is still being tested, the machine is receiving wide-reaching praise for delivering reduced fuel consumption and maintenance costs, while providing greater ease of operation and adaptability.

“Machine operators are very satisfied with the new configuration that helps accomplish more work in less time and are reporting excellent performance,” said Gabriel Badalassi, commercial manager for Caiman. “Allison transmissions adapt very well to the product we manufacture, and as market conjecture settles and product knowledge increases, we look forward to much higher demand.”
