John Deere has confirmed Mazzotti’s self-propelled sprayers will be making their UK show debut at Cereals 2019 next month.
Having purchased the Italian firm two years ago, two of its machines will be on the OEM’s stand at the June event in Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire.
A static model of the 175hp MAF 3580 with a 24m boom and 3,750-litre capacity will be on display alongside the 300hp MAF 6240 with a 36m boom and 6,600-litre capacity. The latter model will also be presented in the Syngenta Sprays & Sprayers Arena at the show.
Suitable for large-scale arable crop production, both models now feature John Deere Powertech engines, hydrostatic transmissions, hydraulic pumps, four-wheel drive and crab steering ability as well as a high clearance up to a 1,700 maximum – dependant on the model.
Inside the cab, there is Category 4 operator protection and a diagnostic monitoring system that displays images from the rear and optional front-mounted video cameras. Additionally, the hydropneumatic suspension onboard ensures comfort for the operator when travelling at speeds of up to 20km/h and 50km/h respectively.
Founded in 1948, in Ravenna, Italy, the family-run Mazzotti business has specialized in self-propelled sprayers for the southern European specialist crop production market, and was purchased by John Deere in the summer of 2017.
