Pegasus 8000

Croplands engineers did not simply put a bigger tank on an existing chassis. The sheer dimensions of the 8000 demanded robust solutions to guarantee a rock solid performance.

 

Super heavy duty chassis design
The superbly engineered chassis is virtually unbreakable and provides structural integrity and stability for a solid feel behind the tractor

Exceptional boom stability
The self levelling boom, coupled with the hydraulic accumulator suspension and an air-ride axle system provides exceptional boom stability for precise droplet application

Low profile tank
Engineered to sit deeper into the chassis to lower the centre of gravity and assist boom stability.

Airbag axle suspension
Hendrickson airbags ensure a smoother ride and longer boom life.

Air Ride Drawbar System
A heavy duty drawbar with an integrated Hendrickson airbag helps to minimise the effects on the tractors tow bar.

700 litre flushing tank
A unique, fully integrated boom flushing system utilises up to 700 litres of fresh water from a separate tank. The system allows the operator to flush lines with no return to main tank. Provides instant boom line purging in the field.

Jack stand/height adjustable hitch
Heavy duty hydraulic retractable jack stand provides fuss-free parking and excellent clearance during operation. The height adjustable hitch optimises distribution of weight on the draw bar.

Large operator access area
The large platform area gives easy access to the filling lid and liquid control system. Fold down steps provide greater crop clearance.

Central control panel
From a central point, the operator can take charge of all the filling, mixing and flushing
functions with ease. A hallmark of the Pegasus range.

Boom suspension
The parallelogram boom suspension with hydraulic accumulator adds to smooth ride and reduces boom fatigue significantly.

Chem-e-Flush
100 litre chemical mixing unit drops down to a safe working height. Optional enviro-transfer system with drum fittings available.

250 L/min pump
A rugged 6-diaphragm pump operates at up to 10 bar with minimum system
stress. Positive displacement liquid delivery means perfect nozzle pressure to ensure air-induction nozzles work to their potential.
