Goldacres G8 Crop Cruiser

The Super Cruiser draws on proven elements from the successful Crop Cruiser range, yet centred around an 8000L main tank. The final product is uncompromising in terms of strength, performance, weight balance, efficiency, stability, visibility, styling, comfort and functionality.
 
The cabin is mounted behind the front axle to give a naturally superior ride due to reduced vertical movement.

In addition, the suspended cabin, air seat and five link airbag suspension system give the operator a smooth ride. The main tank is strategically located between the front and rear axles, in conjunction with the boom, cabin and engine drive line positioning delivers a sprayer with an almost perfect 50/50 weight split. This reduces ground compaction by evenly distributing the weight across all four tyres. The result, perfect balance.
 
The Goldacres Super Cruiser delivers unparalleled driving dynamics for a machine of this size.
The secret to this is the rigid chassis, suspension and mechanical driveline system which provides the machine’s foundation. The main chassis is a fully welded, torsionally rigid semi truss structure.
This offers not only the best sprayer and boom ride, but also the optimum balance between strength and weight. The proven 5 link suspension featuring polyurethane bushed heavy duty torque rods, rear anti-sway bar and air springs on all four corners provides a stable smooth ride. All this combined with the full mechanical driveline results in performance on the ground.

Strength, Stability, Reliability & Control

The new generation TriTech V Series boom range is designed for operators who demand the utmost performance, reliability and control. Time and time again the TriTech boom has been named No.1 for boom stability*, which at the end of the day, results in a superior spray result.

Features such as hydraulic yaw which precisely controls the forwards and backwards movement of the boom wings to minimise the under and over applying of chemical is now standard on all widths. Hydraulic outer wing fold with dampened over centre spring break back maintains perfect outer to inner boom alignment, plus with the added safety feature of a break back mechanism. The strategically placed centre section suspension links help isolate the sprayer chassis movement over rough terrain. Combined with the tuned damping characteristics allows precise roll control enabling an optimal and consistent nozzle height to be maintained, even without the use of electronic height control systems**.

All TriTech booms are constructed using lightweight trussing techniques, which allows for a stronger design without weight, the enemy of boom agility and come in sizes 36 – 42 metres.

The Goldacres TriTech 48m boom has a lightweight trussed construction of steel and aluminium and clever hydraulics for precise yaw and breakaway control. It also has a frame design that gives operators the ability to use a variety of nozzle combinations.

The design of the boom gives the option to work with three different spray widths. With all sections open the total working width is 48m. With the outer section folded back, the working width is 36m, and with the midsection folded back the working width is 20m.

The TriTech boom’s construction consists of from mild steel on inner wings with aluminium on the middle, outer and breakaway sections. This provides strength where needed and weight savings as required.

A deep and wide boom truss structure reduces stresses while increasing overall strength.

The outer wings feature a unique hydraulic break back and break forward function to help fight yaw forces on the boom. This also provides security in the chance of a boom collision.

While using the boom in the folded 20m position the middle wing a hydraulic latch secures the outer and inner wing for increased boom rigidity and longevity.

The inner wings also feature forward and rearward hydraulic dampening as well as full yaw control.

Another clever design feature of the 48m TriTech boom is the single spray bar that puts all spray nozzles in perfect alignment. It allows virtually any nozzle combination or configuration to be mounted on the boom.

The plumbing on the boom is increased to 1-inch poly tubing, which reduces pressure drop and provides more even nozzle flowrates.
