Attendees of the National Farm Machinery Show got the first view of John Deere‘s new CommandView III cab on their 4-Series Sprayers and the 4600 CommandCenter that comes with it. Customers are always looking for ways to be more efficient– to spend less time setting up and more time spraying, says Jason Beuligmann, which is why John Deere has made the cab more comfortable, the control easier to use, and the display multifunctional.
The updates make for a more comfortable environment for producers or service providers who spend 10 and 12 hour days in the cab. From the redesigned CommandARM that features a multi-function handle to the heated and ventilated leather seat, there are many ways for the user to customize the cab.
The latest version of sprayers also come with a carbon fiber boom. Carbon fiber allows for a wider boom because the material is lighter but stronger. It’s also erosion resistant and doesn’t fatigue like steel or other metals, Beuligmann says. Customers also like the look of the simpler design and less surface area means the product is easier to clean.
John Deere will begin taking orders in June of 2017. You can learn more about the updated sprayer at the upcoming Commodity Classic event next week, or follow us here on the Ag.Wired family of pages for news brought to you by John Deere.
