The spray boom:
The high-quality, S355 steel boom is available in working widths from 27 to 54 meters. In consultation with CHD almost all intermediate and unusual working widths can be delivered. All boom types up to 42 meters are 3-fold (4-fold optional). From 42 meters working width, the booms are in a 4-fold layout The outer ends are foldable simultaneously as standard (independent left and right folding is optional). There are cable trays mounted on boom sections 1–3, to protect and carry all cables and hoses to the correct part of the spray boom.
The entire boom is mounted on a central roller (1). A cylinder (2) provides balance adjustment,
while the potentiometer (4) is responsible for the centring the balance.
Two track rods (picture below) prevent machine movements being transferred to the boom.
The balancing lock is activated and deactivated by two cylinders (3).
This allows the balance to move freely even in the highest position.
And this allows a spray height of 2,800 mm under the spray nozzles.
The lift mast comprises two stainless steel tube-profiles. The intermediate frame
(clad with high quality synthetic material), which raises and lowers the boom,
runs on these profiles. The lift cylinder, with no steel cable, provides a constant
lifting speed and it has an accumulator. The accumulator dampens movements
through the vertical plane.
Hoses and cables that move with the boom are mounted protectively in an energy chain.
The hydraulic balance adjustment with automatic centring responds immediately to commands from the driver or from the DistanceControl II system (optional).
Fully folded, the FG series can drive on public roads, with a transport width of 2.85 meters, depending on the tire size and track width.
The FG series is supplied as standard with a 10-pin steering axle, which is operated manually by a double-action valve on the tractor. The optional TRAIL-Control II system provides fully automatic control. This system registers the position of the tractor and the steering cylinder, the driving speed, the incline (optional) and commands from the driver. With this information, the TRAIL-Control II software will keep the machine on track through your crops. The (optional) electric-hydraulic boom functions and automatic steering axle can be supplied by Open Centre or Load Sensing Hydraulics. The steering cylinder is mounted centrally behind the steering axle to guarantee maximum freedom of movement.
As standard, the axle is delivered as fix-mounted version, and with a dual-hose air brake system (optionally a single or dual hose hydraulic brake system). On request, the FG series can be equipped with hydraulic axle suspension that has automatic level regulation (ALR). ALR is available if the machine has hydraulic suspension and air-brakes. The hydraulic axle suspension with automatic level regulation ensures comfortable road transport.
