At the National Farm Machinery Show this week, John Deere announced the introduction of the new R4023 Self-Propelled Sprayer – smaller, more nimble, and ideal for producers with smaller, irregular-shaped fields.
Dave Mulder, product line manager for John Deere application equipment, says the new R4023, which replaces the 4630 model, features a 4.5L, 173 horsepower Final Tier 4 engine, new premium cab option, wide and narrow axle configurations and the latest integrated technology.
“It’s really just a smaller, lighter weight machine that can get in and out of those small fields quick and easy,” said Mulder, who adds that growers are especially interested in the comfort cab options. “We added a Soft Shock option as well as a nice premium cab so they can be just like sitting in their living room and be comfortable operating those machines all day long.”
