Load Command™ enables fastest loading speeds for maximum efficiency

Quick loading with the Load Command system Quick loading with the Load Command system

Load at speeds as fast as 1500 L/min (400 gpm) with the fully integrated Load Command system available for John Deere’s largest sprayer models. This highly efficient loading time allows for more spraying time or more acres per day while complementing the machine’s three-season asset-utilization value.

 

How it works

Load Command allows the operator to pull the sprayer up to the tender unit, couple the Load Command tender arm to the Load Command coupler on the sprayer, and receive a full 4542-L (1200-gal.) load in as fast as 3 minutes and a full 6057-L (1600-gal.) load in 4 minutes.

 

Model Tank size Load time
R4045 4542 L (1200 gal.) 3 minutes
R4060 6057 L (1600 gal.) 4 minutes

Load Command dramatically reduces the fill time and the amount of operator interface time. When the system completes loading, the couplers automatically disengage from each other. This allows the operator to remain in the cab with the ability to quickly return to spraying.

 

By providing improved loading times, the John Deere R4045 and R4060 Sprayers with Load Command are more versatile, more productive, and will provide a better overall return on investment.

 

With the ability to create more spraying time, the Load Command system enables a custom applicator to achieve more value by applying products more efficiently and, in turn, generating more revenue per season.

 

Compatibility

Load Command can be ordered from the factory for R4045 and R4060 Sprayer models equipped with Auto Fill. Load Command is also available as a performance upgrade kit for existing 4930, 4940, R4045, and R4060 Sprayers.

 

NOTE: Load Command and Front Fill are not compatible to be installed on the machine at the same time.

Operator controls within easy reach in CommandView™ III cab with integrated GreenStar™ 4600 CommandCenter™ display

4 Series Sprayer operator station 4 Series Sprayer operator station

When operators first enter the Command View III cab, they will notice that significant changes have been made. Key sprayer controls are more easily accessible to the operator on the redesigned CommandARM™ control panel and the multifunction handle has a more ergonomic fit and feel.

The multifunction handle has six reconfigurable buttons, a scroll to select speed range, and allows operators to better manage their headlands with the Headland Management System (HMS™) button. To finish out the upgrades, the GreenStar™ display has been upgraded to a faster, more user-friendly 4600 CommandCenter™ display, which allows operators to efficiently capture, manage, and transfer data.

Comfort continues to be enhanced by the ComfortCommand™ seat, which offers both fore-aft and lateral attenuation along with 15 degrees of right-hand seat swivel on all cab options. For first-class comfort, the premium cab offers a heated/ventilated leather seat and light-emitting diode (LED) cab lights.

The 4 Series Sprayers are JDLink™ telematics system capable, which enable features such as John Deere Wireless Data Transfer (WDT), Service ADVISOR™ Remote diagnostics, and Remote Display Access (RDA). These integrated solutions enable additional uptime and reduce cost of operation. All of the CommandView III cab features allow operators to run longer hours, increasing the ability to get more acres sprayed in a day.

CommandDrive™ powertrain delivers improved efficiency with Auto Mode

The CommandDrive powertrain comes in base on all R4060, R4045, R4044, R4038, and R4030 Sprayers. This powertrain has the following features:

  • Auto Mode dynamically commands engine speed depending on load requirements
  • Reduce engine speed and save up to 20 percent on fuel consumption
  • 3- to 5-decibel reduction in noise for long hours in the cab
  • Single pump flow instead of two
  • Improved traction control

Deliver accurate rate control with integrated SprayStar™ spray rate control system

SprayStar spray rate control on Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter™ display SprayStar spray rate control on Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter™ display

The SprayStar spray rate control system is a standard feature that is integrated into the design of the self-propelled sprayer system (not a third-party ISO control add-on) and delivers accurate and consistent on-target rate control. All spraying and vehicle functions are displayed on the Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter display for easy operation and setup. In addition to these functions, all precision technology can be used on the same display for complete integration and ease of operation. The engine, chassis, solution system, and precision controllers provide central communication through the display for many vehicle and solution system functions that are simple and easy to use.

 

  • Provides superior rate control, response times, and ease of use
  • Rate control locks on to the desired application rate much more quickly and maintains it better than third-party controllers
  • Easy to understand and simple to set up the key values you must enter to execute the spraying job
    • No cross reference to nodes or task controller like other third-party systems
  • High-speed hydraulic pulse-width modulated control valve varies solution pump speed to produce only the required solution flow in coordination with the flow meter and pressure sensor rather than a valve to restrict flow

 

Engine, transmission, and hydraulic drive pump work together to optimize efficiency of the entire system, providing fuel savings and optimizing power to the ground and delivery of product through the solution system to the nozzles

Steel and carbon-fiber booms feature swing-link suspension for optimum stability

Make fewer passes through the field and reduce compaction, as well as time spent spraying, with John Deere booms.

 

All John Deere booms are more stable due to the swing link suspension, which helps translate rough areas in the field into horizontal (side-to-side) movement of the boom rather than lateral (up and down) movement. This additional stability means increased productivity as the boom now has the ability to more accurately maintain spray height above the crop, delivering a precise spray pattern. The swing link suspension also translates into uptime as the additional stability means less crop damage, resulting in less mechanical boom damage.

 

The enhanced design allows the boom to unfold and fold faster, getting the operators into the field quicker, and the flat fold design delivers superior transport visibility.

Deliver accurate rate control with integrated SpreadStar™ dry rate control system

SpreadStar dry rate control on Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter™ display SpreadStar dry rate control on Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter™ display

The SpreadStar dry rate control system is a standard feature that is integrated into the design of the self-propelled spreader chassis (not a third-party ISO control add-on) and delivers accurate and consistent on-target rate control. All dry spreading and vehicle functions are displayed on the Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter display for easy operation and setup. In addition to these functions, all precision technology can be used on the same display for complete integration and ease of operation. The engine, chassis, dry spreader system, and precision controllers provide central communication through the display for many vehicle and dry system functions that are simple and easy to use.

 

  • Provides superior rate control, response times, and ease of use
  • Rate control locks on to the desired application rate much more quickly and maintains it better than third-party controllers
  • Easy to understand and simple to set up the key values you must enter to execute the spreading job
    • No cross reference to nodes or a task controller like other third-party systems
  • High-speed hydraulic pulse-width modulated control valve varies conveyor shaft speed to produce only the required product flow with easy-to-follow feed rate calibration procedures

Engine, transmission, and hydraulic drive pump work together to optimize efficiency of the entire system, providing fuel savings and optimizing power to the ground and delivery of product to the spinners

Direct injection system expands carrying capacity for raw chemicals

Field-installed 511-L (135-gal.) direct-injection system Field-installed 511-L (135-gal.) direct-injection system
Field-installed 889-L (235-gal.) direct-injection system Field-installed 889-L (235-gal.) direct-injection system

As solution tank mixes become more complex, operators need a better way to manage the products they are mixing in helping to reduce the risk of chemical residue. The integrated direct-injection system provides an additional carrying capacity for raw chemicals and allows injection of single, dual, or triple products directly into the boom depending on installed configuration.

 

Machine Direct injection
carrying capacity
Injection capability
R4030/R4038
model year 2015 and older
(serial number 10,999 and lower)
511 L (135 gal.) Inject up to two chemicals
(one high volume, one low volume)
R4030/R4038
model year 2016 and newer
(serial number 11,000 and higher)
889 L (235 gal.)  Inject up to three chemicals
(two high volume, one low volume)
R4045 889 L (235 gal.) Inject up to three chemicals
(two high volume, one low volume)

NOTE: Low-volume tanks and pumps must be configured with at least one high-volume tank and pump. High-volume tank and pump can be configured by itself.

 

Direct injection helps provide quicker changeovers and faster cleanouts while also helping to minimize the risk of using multiple chemicals. This is accomplished by allowing operators the ability to isolate higher-residual-risk chemicals in the injection system while mixing lower-risk chemicals in the solution tank.

The minimum and maximum application rates for each pump are as follows:

 

Direct injection pump system High-rate pump Low-rate pump
Application rate range
(minimum to maximum)
148-5900 mL/min (5-200 oz/min) 29.6-1183 mL/min (1-40 oz/min)
Agitation capability Not available – suspension products not recommended Not available – suspension products not recommended

 

NOTE: See Operator’s Manual for additional details based on boom size and speed range, and refer to Tools/Direct Inject Calculator within the ApplyPlus mobile app (download via Apple® App Store® or Google Play store).

ExactApply™ nozzle control delivers precise application with up to 20 acres per hour of added productivity

Turn compensation mode Turn compensation mode
Individual nozzle control mode Individual nozzle control mode

John Deere’s intelligent nozzle control system ExactApply helps producers better manage drift and deliver a precise application. By maintaining target rate and pressure over a wider speed range, ExactApply can improve productivity up to 20 acres per hour*.

 

*NOTE: Assumes a 3.2-km/h (2-mph) average operating speed increase.

 

ExactApply is offered as a factory-installed option as well as a performance upgrade kit that can be added to existing 4 Series Sprayer models. 

 

How it works

The ExactApply system features multiple modes of operation including pulse-width modulation (PWM) and individual nozzle control:

  • 15-Hz PWM pulses one solenoid to achieve a consistent droplet size and maintain spray pressure throughout a wider range of speeds and application rates.
  • 30-Hz PWM (combined mode) pulses both solenoids in the ExactApply nozzle body at 15 Hz, providing superior coverage. Combined mode allows ExactApply to have a 25 percent increased flow over current competitive systems in the market.
  • AutoSelect A/B automatically switches between two nozzles to maintain the desired spray pressure range while spraying conventionally.
  • Turn compensation varies the rate across the boom, ensuring the desired application rate. The rate decreases on the inside of the turn to not subject crop to chemical burn, while the rate on the outside of boom increases, ensuring the crop receives the desired application rate.
  • Individual nozzle control minimizes overlap by controlling product application through individual nozzles. This reduces chemical cost and ensures the product is placed where it is needed most. In comparison, traditional nozzle control functions in 11 sections, meaning section widths vary from 2.4 to 3.35 m (8 to 11 ft), depending upon boom width.

    Load Command™ enables fastest loading speeds for maximum efficiency

    Quick loading with the Load Command system Quick loading with the Load Command system

    Load at speeds as fast as 1500 L/min (400 gpm) with the fully integrated Load Command system available for John Deere’s largest sprayer models. This highly efficient loading time allows for more spraying time or more acres per day while complementing the machine’s three-season asset-utilization value.

     

    How it works

    Load Command allows the operator to pull the sprayer up to the tender unit, couple the Load Command tender arm to the Load Command coupler on the sprayer, and receive a full 4542-L (1200-gal.) load in as fast as 3 minutes and a full 6057-L (1600-gal.) load in 4 minutes.

     

    Model Tank size Load time
    R4045 4542 L (1200 gal.) 3 minutes
    R4060 6057 L (1600 gal.) 4 minutes

    Load Command dramatically reduces the fill time and the amount of operator interface time. When the system completes loading, the couplers automatically disengage from each other. This allows the operator to remain in the cab with the ability to quickly return to spraying.

     

    By providing improved loading times, the John Deere R4045 and R4060 Sprayers with Load Command are more versatile, more productive, and will provide a better overall return on investment.

     

    With the ability to create more spraying time, the Load Command system enables a custom applicator to achieve more value by applying products more efficiently and, in turn, generating more revenue per season.

     

    Compatibility

    Load Command can be ordered from the factory for R4045 and R4060 Sprayer models equipped with Auto Fill. Load Command is also available as a performance upgrade kit for existing 4930, 4940, R4045, and R4060 Sprayers.

     

    NOTE: Load Command and Front Fill are not compatible to be installed on the machine at the same time.

    Deliver accurate rate control with integrated SprayStar™ spray rate control system

    SprayStar spray rate control on Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter™ display SprayStar spray rate control on Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter™ display

    The SprayStar spray rate control system is a standard feature that is integrated into the design of the self-propelled sprayer system (not a third-party ISO control add-on) and delivers accurate and consistent on-target rate control. All spraying and vehicle functions are displayed on the Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter display for easy operation and setup. In addition to these functions, all precision technology can be used on the same display for complete integration and ease of operation. The engine, chassis, solution system, and precision controllers provide central communication through the display for many vehicle and solution system functions that are simple and easy to use.

     

    • Provides superior rate control, response times, and ease of use
    • Rate control locks on to the desired application rate much more quickly and maintains it better than third-party controllers
    • Easy to understand and simple to set up the key values you must enter to execute the spraying job
      • No cross reference to nodes or task controller like other third-party systems
    • High-speed hydraulic pulse-width modulated control valve varies solution pump speed to produce only the required solution flow in coordination with the flow meter and pressure sensor rather than a valve to restrict flow

     

    Engine, transmission, and hydraulic drive pump work together to optimize efficiency of the entire system, providing fuel savings and optimizing power to the ground and delivery of product through the solution system to the nozzles

    Steel and carbon-fiber booms feature swing-link suspension for optimum stability

    Make fewer passes through the field and reduce compaction, as well as time spent spraying, with John Deere booms.

     

    All John Deere booms are more stable due to the swing link suspension, which helps translate rough areas in the field into horizontal (side-to-side) movement of the boom rather than lateral (up and down) movement. This additional stability means increased productivity as the boom now has the ability to more accurately maintain spray height above the crop, delivering a precise spray pattern. The swing link suspension also translates into uptime as the additional stability means less crop damage, resulting in less mechanical boom damage.

     

    The enhanced design allows the boom to unfold and fold faster, getting the operators into the field quicker, and the flat fold design delivers superior transport visibility.

    Deliver accurate rate control with integrated SpreadStar™ dry rate control system

      • No cross reference to nodes or a task controller like other third-party systems
    • High-speed hydraulic pulse-width modulated control valve varies conveyor shaft speed to produce only the required product flow with easy-to-follow feed rate calibration procedures

    Engine, transmission, and hydraulic drive pump work together to optimize efficiency of the entire system, providing fuel savings and optimizing power to the ground and delivery of product to the spinners

    Direct injection system expands carrying capacity for raw chemicals

    Field-installed 511-L (135-gal.) direct-injection system Field-installed 511-L (135-gal.) direct-injection system
    Field-installed 889-L (235-gal.) direct-injection system Field-installed 889-L (235-gal.) direct-injection system

    As solution tank mixes become more complex, operators need a better way to manage the products they are mixing in helping to reduce the risk of chemical residue. The integrated direct-injection system provides an additional carrying capacity for raw chemicals and allows injection of single, dual, or triple products directly into the boom depending on installed configuration.

     

    Machine Direct injection
    carrying capacity
    Injection capability
    R4030/R4038
    model year 2015 and older
    (serial number 10,999 and lower)
    511 L (135 gal.) Inject up to two chemicals
    (one high volume, one low volume)
    R4030/R4038
    model year 2016 and newer
    (serial number 11,000 and higher)
    889 L (235 gal.)  Inject up to three chemicals
    (two high volume, one low volume)
    R4045 889 L (235 gal.) Inject up to three chemicals
    (two high volume, one low volume)

    NOTE: Low-volume tanks and pumps must be configured with at least one high-volume tank and pump. High-volume tank and pump can be configured by itself.

     

    Direct injection helps provide quicker changeovers and faster cleanouts while also helping to minimize the risk of using multiple chemicals. This is accomplished by allowing operators the ability to isolate higher-residual-risk chemicals in the injection system while mixing lower-risk chemicals in the solution tank.

    The minimum and maximum application rates for each pump are as follows:

     

    Direct injection pump system High-rate pump Low-rate pump
    Application rate range
    (minimum to maximum)
    148-5900 mL/min (5-200 oz/min) 29.6-1183 mL/min (1-40 oz/min)
    Agitation capability Not available – suspension products not recommended Not available – suspension products not recommended

    ExactApply™ nozzle control delivers precise application with up to 20 acres per hour of added productivity

    Turn compensation mode Turn compensation mode
    Individual nozzle control mode Individual nozzle control mode

    John Deere’s intelligent nozzle control system ExactApply helps producers better manage drift and deliver a precise application. By maintaining target rate and pressure over a wider speed range, ExactApply can improve productivity up to 20 acres per hour*.

     

    *NOTE: Assumes a 3.2-km/h (2-mph) average operating speed increase.

     

    ExactApply is offered as a factory-installed option as well as a performance upgrade kit that can be added to existing 4 Series Sprayer models. 

     

    How it works

    The ExactApply system features multiple modes of operation including pulse-width modulation (PWM) and individual nozzle control:

    • 15-Hz PWM pulses one solenoid to achieve a consistent droplet size and maintain spray pressure throughout a wider range of speeds and application rates.
    • 30-Hz PWM (combined mode) pulses both solenoids in the ExactApply nozzle body at 15 Hz, providing superior coverage. Combined mode allows ExactApply to have a 25 percent increased flow over current competitive systems in the market.
    • AutoSelect A/B automatically switches between two nozzles to maintain the desired spray pressure range while spraying conventionally.
    • Turn compensation varies the rate across the boom, ensuring the desired application rate. The rate decreases on the inside of the turn to not subject crop to chemical burn, while the rate on the outside of boom increases, ensuring the crop receives the desired application rate.
    • Individual nozzle control minimizes overlap by controlling product application through individual nozzles. This reduces chemical cost and ensures the product is placed where it is needed most. In comparison, traditional nozzle control functions in 11 sections, meaning section widths vary from 2.4 to 3.35 m (8 to 11 ft), depending upon boom width.
