Cropweek 2012 – AGCO Launches 2012 Rogator Sprayer

This years Crop Production Week had a number of high-clearance sprayers from multiple companies being showcased on the tradeshow floor. We looked at a few of those sprayers already. In this segment, we turn our sites on AGCO‘s 2012 Rogator high-clearance sprayer.

Some of the new features of this sprayer are visible from the outside, but the most change takes place internally. A new engine for the machine provides more horsepower to the ground at greater efficiency and with less of an impact on the environment. Other features focus on greater convenience and accessibility for the operator when it comes to servicing and filling the machine. Comfort is improved as well with a quieter cab with a greater field of view.

I talked to Todd Nagy of Kramer Ag about the features of the new 2012 Rogator.
