The third generation of post-emergency applicators calls RoGator 874 / 1074 / 1274. The machines are not just more powerful, they are also simpler to maintain due to changes in the drive circuit. The RoGator 874 and RoGator 1074 are powered by proven Cat® 3126B diesel engines equipped with full electronic control and waste-gated turbochargers.
The RoGator 874, with its 800-gallon product tank capacity, is well served by the Cat engine’s 250 SAE hp (186 kW) with a power bulge to 275 SAE hp (205 kW) and peak torque of 760 lb-ft (1030 n-m). On the RoGator 1074, the powerful Cat engine produces 275 SAE hp (204 kW) with peak power of 299 SAE hp (223 kW) and peak torque of 830 lb-ft (1125 n-m) to easily handle its 1,000-gallon product tank capacity. The RoGator 1274 with its 1200-gallon product tank is equipped with a 8.8 liter Caterpillar C9 engine with an output of 325 hp.
The new Sauer/Danfoss hydrostatic pumps combine with higher torque motors on the front wheels to maximize efficient use of the increased power. The tandem 90 series pumps provide more solid pressure control, thanks to a 35% higher flow rate of 66 gpm for even stronger performance. More design enhancements that further extend RoGator’s high standards in reliability and efficient operation include improved flow meter positioning, a more accessible electrical distribution center, repositioned and enhanced rinse tank, roomier platform and auto-retracting ladder. In 2006, the Super Sprayers series has been presented.
With 3-models to complete the series, the RoGator SS874, SS1074 and SSC1074 combine to bring sturdy suspension, operator comfort and all the power needed for any application operation. Changes of note begin with the air-ride chassis. Inside the cab, control panels were evaluated for frequency of use, and interior layout redesign freed up floor space. Control panels now ride on a full floating armrest, giving operators immediate and easy access to the most commonly used controls. Less frequently used controls are easy to reach on the B-post panel.
Increased glass improves already extensive visibility, and a new climate control system improves cab life with three-level filtration and automatic temperature control. The improved suspension with air springs, anti-roll system, shock absorbers and front and rear automatic ride height leveling takes the edge off the roughest field. For an even smoother ride, customers can choose the optional semi-active seat with heated seat cushions.
The RoGator SS Series retains the powerful 439 cu. in. (7.2L) Cat 3126B engine of the RoGator 1074 with its 275 SAE HP at 2500 rpm and power bulge to 299 SAE hp at 2200 rpm. They also retain the proven full-time 4-wheel hydrostatic drive and air system. In addition, this new series offers the option for dry or wet systems and spinner or air boom distribution on the dry systems.
