Challenger RoGator 600D with new Vision Cab Demonstration

Challenger will be demonstrating the award winning RoGator 600 at the National Self-Propelled Sprayer Demo Day taking place at Bramcote Hall Farm, Tamworth, Staffordshire on Wednesday 22nd February 2017.

Providing superior levels of operator visibility, space and comfort, Challenger’s RoGator 600D self-propelled sprayer is the first machine to use AGCO’s newly-developed global cab.

Totally integrated into the sprayer, engineers have maximised the use of all available space on the Category 4 certified Vision cab.

Being 32cm wider (22%) than the previous RoGator C-Series cab, there is plenty of space for the passenger seat which contains an integrated storage box capable of both cooling and heating the contents.

The new cab also provides a generous 14.3% (0.5cu.m.) interior volume increase and the front screen is 1.34sq.m. larger - an increase of nearly 90%. Combined with the narrower steering column, this greatly improves operator visibility out through the front.

The total cab glass area is increased by nearly a quarter (0.4sq.m.) and the flatter but wider and curved design of the rear windows and slim-line rear cab posts help to improve operator visibility of the booms.

The cab interior and control panel is all brand new and all software now developed in-house. There is a new arm rest which has printed icons explaining all functions and controls, while the current twin screen terminal from the RG600C has been replaced by a single 10.2” screen in the RG600D.

The new cab also features an updated climate control system as standard. The enlarged heavy-duty air-conditioning system produces the same cooling capacity at a lower fan speed, helping to reduce in-cab noise levels.

On the exterior the fuel and ad-blue tanks have been combined and the size of the diesel tank has been increased by 90-litres from 230 to 320 litres.

The height of the side-walls of the pull-out chemical storage container has also been lowered making it easier to replace spray cans. The front is now fitted with a soap dispenser.

The new position for the hydraulic tank behind the cab has allowed the access platform to be made of a flat floor design. The standard top and bottom halogen front work lights can be optionally replaced for a LED package.

The RoGator D also features a totally updated technology package including an in-house developed application control. When fitted with Yara’s crop-sensor, these technology-packed machines can be used with several new precision farming features.

The TaskDoc Pro documentation system provides wireless data-exchange between the vehicle and the office. The TaskDoc Variable Rate Control (VRC), a map based product application, provides for electric nozzle shut-off /1m section.

All vehicles come telemetry ready, allowing access to AGCO’s soon to be introduced “Fuse Connected Services”. Connected Services are Dealer offered service packages ensuring vehicle up-time and operation optimisation.
