In the field, the RG700’s air spring suspension system and parallel c-channel flex frame makes for a smooth ride, with constant adjustment as load weight changes, consistent height, constant wheel-to-ground contact and less wear and tear. Its traction control and all wheel drive ensure all four wheels are spinning at the same speed, limiting the likelihood of getting stuck.

The RG700 has a crop clearance of up to 54″, can travel up to 30mph on the road and is available in two adjustable track widths and two boom widths with full-boom and tip breakaway. It is also one of the best sprayers available for growers who value precision.
