The UF self-propelled sprayer with FT for even higher outputs
The FT front tank allows the tank capacity of the UF mounted field sprayer to be very easily extended by either 1,000 litres or 1,500 litres. Thanks to the optional FlowControl+ System and the compact design, the UF front tank is the ideal solution for increasing the overall capacity of the UF.

From mid-April to mid-May … 
… huge tulip fields light up North Holland. For targeted plant protection, tulip grower Siem Munster relies on a UF 2002 mounted sprayer and an FT 1001 front tank. The core characteristics of this combination are particularly important when working in his tulip crop: efficient, comfortable, compact and precise!

The advantages at a glance:

  • FlowControl+ intelligent fill level management – for optimum weight distribution
  • Improved driving stability on slopes due to the intelligent loading of the front axle
  • Very compact design thanks to front linkage – better manoeuvrability in the field and for a safer road transport

The special advantages offered of more manoeuvrable tractors with a mounted implement compared with trailed sprayers in smaller and more awkward shaped fields as well as the better behaviour on slopes are the major arguments for the front tank solution. 

But also in the 3,500-litre self-propelled sprayer class, a comfortable tractor equipped with a high-quality combination of mounted sprayer and front tank makes an interesting alternative.

Benefits over a self-propelled sprayer

  • Huge advantage on price 
  • 80 km/h permitted speed with Fastrac 
  • Tractor can also be used for other work

Benefits over a trailed sprayer 

  • Compact unit 
  • Less side crabbing on inclines 
  • Good ballasting of the front axle provides good driving stability on hilly terrain 
  • Faster manoeuvring on the headland and in short work 
  • More manoeuvrable in small fields 
  • Compact transport on narrow country lanes and through villages 
  • The front tank simultaneously serves as a front weight, thereby providing optimum balance to reduce the pressure on the soil
