For crop producers and commercial applicators who want a smaller, lighter-weight self-propelled sprayer, John Deere has added the R4023 to its 4 Series Sprayer lineup.

The R4023, which replaces the 4630 model, features a 4.5 L, 173 horsepower, final Tier 4 engine, wide and narrow axle configurations, and the latest integrated technology to apply crop care products in a timely, efficient manner.

Dave Mulder, product line manager for the company’s application equipment, says the new sprayer offers the smaller size and maneuverability to more easily cover smaller, odd-shaped fields.

The sprayer features a four-wheel hydrostatic drive, 600-gallon poly tank, 80-foot booms that can fold to 60 feet for tight conditions and a durable, vibration-resistant C-Channel chassis frame.

“Weighing in at 18,165 pounds, the new sprayer is a perfect fit for cotton, corn, soybean and small-grain producers, as well as ag service providers wanting a smaller, versatile machine that’s easier to transport on a trailer and store. Yet, this sprayer still provides the capacity to cover fields quickly and efficiently,” Mulder says.
