In 2009 the 5th generation of RoGator applicators has been presented. The new models feature larger-capacity tanks, top-notch visibility on the road and in the field, plus easier access to the cab and the convenience of a new front-load liquid system. Meeting needs of both retailers and producers who are growing in farm size, the new models offer greater capacity with 900-, 1,100- and 1,300-gallon liquid systems.
The 2010 RoGator lineup includes model 984H with 250 gross horsepower, equipped with a 900-gallon tank; the model 984 at 275 gross horsepower and a 900-gallon tank; the 1184 and 1184H with 275 gross horsepower and an 1,100-gallon tank; and the new 1386 featuring 311 gross horsepower and the industry’s largest tank at 1,300 gallons. Both the 1184 and 1386 may also be equipped with a dry spinner system. RoGator H models feature leaf-spring suspension while suspension on the 984, 1184 and 1386 is provided by an air-spring system. All models continue to feature AGCO’s exclusive “C” channel frame for greater durability and flexibility to keep all four wheels on the ground at all times for better traction, fuel economy and field performance.
The ownership experience of the 2010 RoGator’s front entry design begins with what likely will be a favorite new feature: ingress to the cab. There’s a fold-down ladder with an easy first step, a friendly angle of ascent, wide-set handrails, and a wide walkway maximized at the cab side to allow what AGCO officials say is the widest cab door opening in its class. Two different walkway treads provide secure footing along with large tread holes for exceptional visibility to the left front wheel.
Front entry design also makes possible a new and more convenient optional front-fill liquid system featuring larger fresh water and hand rinse tanks, faster reloading and reloading access to a nurse truck without folding in sprayer booms. Lowered boom mounts and a lowered tank saddle, as well as off-cab rear-view mirror mountings, mean the already unparalleled panoramic view of the six-post Advanced Application Cab is now even better–both in the field and on the road.
The RoGator cab also has been given a thicker, more soundproof floor mat, adding to the quiet inside comfort. 28th of September 2010, the new updated models for 2011 year have been showed. The critical new feature is a proven drive system that AGCO has engineered to deliver even higher levels of performance and reliability in the field.
The new RoGator drive system features two-piece construction – a hydraulic motor and a separate gear reduction hub – that delivers more power to the ground, more efficiently, than ever before. All five models now come with seven speed ranges. Multiple speed ranges improve productivity by allowing operators to better match the speed range to the field conditions resulting in quicker acceleration and improved power management. The new models are called 994 / 994H / 1194 / 1194H / 1396.
