Case IH is now offering their brand new AutoBoom XRT automatic boom height control on Patriot and Trident series sprayers as an expansion of their existing high-efficiency spraying options. This next-generation technology uses a combination of chassis monitoring and sensors to see ahead of the sprayer in order to detect changes in terrain and automatically adjust the booms. The radar sensors can also be configured to maximize boom life, maintain a level spray platform, and detect the location of the ground or crop canopy for the most accurate, high-efficiency spraying.
High-efficiency application starts with superior accuracy, and that means a boom needs to stay a consistent, level height above the ground. AutoBoom XRT outshines prior height control options because it allows producers to consistently cover a wide range of terrain, from smooth topographies to waterways and terraces.”- Mark Burns, Case IH application equipment marketing manager
AutoBoom XRT automatic boom height control is designed to help operators cover more acres effectively per pass and provide consistent, accurate application across every inch of ground. This option is ideal for producers with longer spray booms, as the longer the boom, the more challenging it is for operators to maintain level and consistent application. AutoBoom XRT automatic boom height control comes with three radar sensors strategically placed along the boom, with the option to add more for a total of up to seven, for maximum points of monitoring.
