Self-Propelled Sprayer Ride’n’Drive
Growers shopping for a self-propelled sprayer this year can save time coordinating demonstrations with sales representatives by simply making a trip to Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show (COFS). The 2016 field equipment demonstrations will include a self-propelled sprayer ride’n’drive zone.
The self-propelled sprayer ride ‘n’ drive will be ongoing from 10:00am to 3:00pm in the Southwest Demo FielD. Among the manufacturers available to test drive will be John Deere, New Holland, Case IH/Green Lea Ag Centre Inc., HJV, Agrifac/Specialty Vegetable Equipment as well as Apache/R. E.

The new ride ’n’ drive test track will feature a partially cropped, partially bare field so drivers can easily test each sprayer for stability, turning, and rinsing on the go among other aspects. The track will include turns to get a feel for both sides while performing a high speed turn, as well as a number of obstacles for operators to maneuver around to get a good feel of the machine’s capabilities.
