The occurrence of corn borer and western corn rootworm in some areas is spreading and therefore our company has decided to comply with our customers’ requirements and to widen our range of self-propelled sprayers with a new type. New self-propelled sprayer GEKON with hydraulically adjustable ground clearance from 130 cm to 180 cm and tank of 3000 - 5000 l will have a CLAAS cabin. This cabin has the highest protection level (Cat. 4) - overpressure chemical gas filtration, better noise elimination, ergonomic steering wheel, better suspension of all-leather seat with air extraction or “more comfortable” distribution of air-conditioned air. The new self-propelled sprayer will have individual suspension for each wheel to reach maximum comfort of the driver.
