Be prepared for a new experience when you check out the 2014 Apache sprayer at Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Ill. August 27-29.
When you climb into the cab of a 2014 Apache sprayer, you will notice some big changes in the cab compared to previous models. If you can’t make it to the show, here is your first opportunity to see what’s new on this year’s Apache sprayer.
The ergonomic design of the cab was created to improve the operator’s experience. “We transformed the operator experience into a more efficient one,” said Equipment Technologies’ Director of Engineering, Chad Ringer. “Our team listened to owners, simplified current technology and created an ergonomic atmosphere well-suited for today’s grower. This year’s cab is a new chapter for the Apache sprayer.”
Some of the major changes for the year include a redesigned center stack console arm rest and a modernly styled interior. Inside you will find a portable cooler and multiple storage compartments for documents and personal belongings. Also new to the 2014 model, the battery disconnect and the engine fan control are now inside the cab. This will allow for easier access.
The ET Pilot System™ will allow you more control with greater ease. This system features a seven inch interactive color touchscreen equipped with preinstalled dashboard apps. Swipe the screen left to right to track transmission, fuel economy, slope readouts and track your Cummins engine torque output. Also included is a rearview camera. You can now run a diagnostics report on the machine’s transmission, precision options and other vital components.
Keeping precision at the top of mind, there will be new precision options available with the 2014 Apache including:
- Raven’s Viper 4
- Raven integrated 2 inch or 3 inch flow meter at the fill station
- ISO integration
