Knight Farm Machinery has increased the capacity of its trailed Trailblazer sprayer range with four new models from 7,000-12,000 litres.

Sitting above the existing 3,500-6,000-litre machines, the new models; 7000 (7,000l), 8000 (8,000l), 10000 (10,000l) and 12000 (12,000l), were developed to meet demand from larger farms seeking to cover more area per day with a tractor-based sprayer.

The single-axle Trailblazer 7000 and 8000 can be fitted with a second air-suspended support axle, suiting users wanting to remain road legal when travelling with full loads of liquid fertiliser.

We hope to see some pictures of the first finished machines in the next couple of weeks.

As with the smaller 3,500-6,000l models, the 7000 and 8000 can be ordered with booms of 24-40m, all equipped as standard with the firm’s 4D boom suspension system and single-nozzle switching.

The larger Trailblazer 10000 and 12000 differ primarily in the fitment of a stainless-steel tank and a standard tandem axle arrangement. A Müller automatic control system governs the steering of both axles to minimise crop damage on headlands.

All four new models are ISObus-compliant and are available with a full range of nozzle technology. They benefit from a lower and flatter boom park position to lower the machines’ centre of gravity, plus a revised induction area and air-braked uprated axles.

MAXImizer update

Introduced alongside the new models is MAXImizer Pro, an update of Knight’s MAXImizer circulation technology, with its live induction hopper, booms fed at multiple points to ensure even spray-line pressure, and continuous circulation of fluid through the complete plumbing of the machine.

The Pro version sees boom pipework reduced by a fifth for further enhancements to efficient spray-line circulation. As an example, on a trailed TB5200 sprayer with 36m boom, the volume of liquid retained in the system is reduced by 7.5 litres.
