The John Deere 4900 Chassis Sprayer fitted with an L3220G4 or L3030G4 New Leader Spinner Spreader is capable of spreading 25 percent to 50 percent wider than most other leading spreaders on the market, producing more acres covered per day and industry-leading productivity.
With up to 105-ft spread widths, the patented adjustable spinner assembly allows quick, accurate settings for variable-rate applications, broadcasting materials farther and wider with consistent spread patterns and producing industry-leading productivity.
The L3220G4 and L3030G4 Spreaders are controlled with the John Deere SpreadStar controller, allowing integrated control with the machine. GreenStar™ 2 allows operators to do single or dual products, map-based prescriptions, variable rates, as-applied maps, and Swath Control Pro™.
In as little as four hours, liquid can be converted to dry application for true multi-season use.
The spinner height on the 4900 Chassis Sprayer is 68 in. versus 42 in. on a floater. This added height allows a greater trajectory at a lower spinner speed.
A rule of thumb for a 70-ft spread on a floater is 700-rpm spinner spread; on a 4900 Chassis Sprayer, the same 700 rpm can increase spread width as much as 15 ft. Added spread width increases the number of acres per day and decreases the number of passes, which also reduces fuel costs and compaction.
NOTE: Fertilizer density differs, and a pan test is the only way to measure the true spread width for that product.
