RB55 Product Focus

The RB55 gives you more for less. Shorter weather windows have forced many growers and contractors to rethink their spraying strategies. This has led to an increase in the demand for sprayers with more capacity and wider booms, along with the need for greater efficiency and less compaction.

Our RB55 self-propelled sprayer offers the perfect solution for increasing spraying capacity. We fit a 5,600 litre baffled stainless steel spray tank with integrated clean water rinse tank, the tank is centrally mounted which enables a near 50/50 weight distribution when the boom is unfolded.

The much copied but never bettered Bateman Variable Geometry (VG) Contour boom is fitted as standard on the RB55. With a maximum width of up to 42m, V.G boom options are: 12/20/24m, 12/24/ to either 28-30-32 or 36m and 14/28/ to either 40 or 42m.

Leaving a smaller footprint on the soil is high on most farmers’ agenda. The RB55 is a remarkably compact design, is the lightest machine in its class for tank capacity and produces less compaction compared to other brands. The RB55 features our lower back frame to allow for larger tyres, now fitted as standard to this machine, enabling higher capacities to be carried whilst applying low ground pressure.

When you drive a Bateman sprayer you feel connected with it. Our E-Drive transmission is also a standard feature on the 55. Designed to provide a wider range of control in all situations, E-Drive includes powerful boosted braking (hydrostatic) and dynamic braking, using the emergency brake pedal. Drivers also benefit from selectable road, field and cruise driving modes.

Pulse width modulation (PWM) is a very popular option on the RB55. Our technology is developed with partner, Capstan AG. PinPoint III Envelop™ is the next generation of blended pulse width modulation which expands the flow and pressure stability to another level of control all through compatible ISOBUS displays.

An example of the effectiveness of our PWM would be if a machine with 10 auto sections is replaced with individual nozzle control, the farm size is shrunk between 3 -5 percent. Therefore, huge savings are achieved from the reduction in chemicals and much more if liquid fertiliser is being applied through the sprayer.

The list of standard features on the RB55 is impressive and includes: chassis auto greaser, LED light pack, TankMatic and SprayBib tyres. To find out what the RB55 could do for your business speak to us on 01769 580439.
