It happened in Coronel Bicaco, on the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul; a Massey Ferguson client received the first MF sprayer in the world. The farmer, Marcio Luis Schreiner, will use the MF 9030 in his 450 hectares of soy, corn and wheat. The machine was delivered on June 11, 2011 by Pippi Máquinas Dealer, through its headquarters in Giruá city. Currently, Massey Ferguson sprayers are only offered in South America.
The farmer is already waiting for productivity gains with the sprayer work done on his crop. He plans to work with the machine in order to record the results by the end of the harvest. “With this sprayer capacity, I will be able to reduce the time of application from one week down to two days ”, celebrates the farmer who recently had sprayed his property with a machine adapted into a tractor.
The new machine acquired by Mr. Schreiner is also a brand value proof by the farmer. Besides MF 9030, the farmer still counts with a MF 297/4 tractor and one MF 5650 combine, as well as two Massey Ferguson planters. “I trust Massey Ferguson products and I know these machines are excellent for cropping”, affirms Schreiner.
The machine delivered on the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul indicates the first Massey Ferguson improvement in the self-propelled sprayer segment. The machine leaves the factory in Canoas with an innovative solution in the Flex Frame chassis. The main features of the new product is the capacity of keeping the contact of the wheels with the soil at any topography, absorbing the irregularities of the ground and ensuring, therefore, the maximum of traction and spray bar stability, regardless the application speed.
Other equipment features includes its 3 thousand liters tank and 24 or 28 meters spray bars, divided into five or seven sections. The ignition is made by electrohydraulic command and positioned in the joystick. MF 9030 is the only sprayer in the market which maintains a 1.5 meters free span with different options of wheels, a feature that allows working in greater crops without damage.
