Which SP sprayer to get??
Hey friends, it’s time to upgrade to a self-propelled sprayer on our farm, but what to get exactly is the tough part. I’ve been pulling a 1500 gallon Summers, with 100’ booms for 8 years now, mostly with a JD 9360R. Obviously Deere is king in western Oklahoma, as I’m never more than 20 minutes from a dealership in any direction. 4830’s are popular here, but I feel like I can do better within my budget. I don’t want to go smaller than 1,000 gallon. My budget is $100K-$140K anyone got advice to give? I’m all ears here
I have a 2012 Rogator Rg1300. It has 2700 hours on it and have had next to nothing for trouble with it. I would highly recommend one.
We tried a Deere but the case won lighter easier to get around , smooth , quiet , good power, reliable , and aim works very well . Try one o...More

That’s awesome! Best of luck to you with it, I’m sure you will really enjoy that sprayer.
If you tell them you are going to test drive a Case, you will get a better deal. They don't want you to do that
Alright friends, thanks for the info! I drove a couple hours into TX today to look at a 4940 with 2400 hours on it, and I was fairly impress...More
Got news for you. My neighbours Hutterites got one broke down now for three days. Some broken shaft. pump I think.
Congrats! I think you’ll like it a lot! Hope the deal goes your way!

Case 120’ booms are nearly impossible to beat. The ride is so smooth it’s unreal. I love our case
I’m looking hard at a JD 4940. The local dealer network has several very similar ones in western OK and TX
I personally have had significant trouble with the 4940 and would not recommend it.
I have a 4930 with 120'. Love it. Graduated from a 1254 Rogator. When I was looking I was told by two guys that have had both 4930 and 4940'...More
