Sprayer – Eole 3000/VXL

EFFICIENCY

  • Tanks with a nominal capacity of 528 and 793 gallons.
  • 92.5 gallons of on-board water for rinsing.
  • Variable flow pump (2.6 to 69 gallons per minute) suitable for filling the tanks and for all types of spraying.

EASE OF HANDLING

  • Automatic width adjustment.
  • Automated system for folding in the ramp at the headland, which the operator can control from the EASY DRIVE joystick.
  • The downpipes are located as close as possible to the carrier to facilitate maneuvering.
  • Raising of the entire ramp to pass over the vines.
  • The operator can cut-off sections row by row from the joystick control.
  • Tilt correction up to 30%.
  • Safety mechanism on the downpipes in the event of snagging.

PRECISION SPRAYING

  • Surface-by-surface spraying for greater accuracy in the row.
  • The fans are located as close as possible to the downpipes to ensure a more regular air flow rate.
  • Ultrasound ground tracking: The product is always sprayed in just the right place.
  • Integrated DPAE system (electronically controlled flow rate proportional to forward speed): The spraying rate is maintained over a wide range of ground speeds.
  • Mixing independent of the working pressure.
  • Approved sprayer for reducing unsprayed buffer zones with all types of anti-drift nozzles.

ERGONOMIC DESIGN

  • Intuitive sprayer-specific interface on the EASY TOUCH console.
  • The operator can see the active sections, ground tracking, and tank levels on the screen.
  • Integrated spray-liquid mixer.
  • Simplified operating position.

We treat four full rows at once. The ultrasonic ground tracking ensures optimal positioning of the sprayers on sloped and uneven terrain. Since the distance is kept even between the diffuser and the plant canopy, the consistency and quality of the application is very good. We also appreciate Flow-rate Proportional to Forward speed function, which means that the flow rate of the dose per hectare is always respected regardless of the working conditions.

100% INTEGRATED INTERFACE

EASY TOUCH TOUCHSCREEN CONSOLE

  • A specific control interface is automatically displayed when the sprayer is coupled.
  • Intuitive menus and icons make EOLE settings easy to configure.

MONITORING THE WORK

  • Instant display of active sections, ground tracking, and tank levels on the EASY TOUCH console.

EASY DRIVE JOYSTICK

  • Automatic button assignment.
  • Control of ramp movements and active sections.

SECTION CUT-OFF

  • The operator can control the tips directly from the joystick by managing the number of active sections, without interrupting the work in progress.
  • When the right or left spraying boom is fully deactivated, the ramp automatically folds up.

MANAGING HEADLANDS

RAMP FOLDING IN HEADLAND TURN

  • When exiting a row, 1 click on the joystick cuts off the spraying, stops the ground tracking, and starts the ramp folding sequence.
  • When entering a new row, a second click re-extends the ramp and restarts the spraying.

PASSING OVER THE VINES

  • Depending on how much room there is at the headland, the whole ramp can be raised to pass over the vines.

CENTRALIZED OPERATION

OPERATING POSITION

  • Control and check the EOLE set-up entirely from the ground.
  • This panel groups together valves and switches for all sprayer functions.
  • An intuitive operation guide helps the operator easily position the valves to the desired position.

SPRAY-LIQUID MIXER

  • Enables the operator to prepare the spray mixture safely from the ground.
  • The mixing can be done while filling the tank.
  • Large volume and graduated tank (10.6 gallons).
  • Built-in rinse tank.

LIMITED DRIFT

OPTIMAL SPRAYING DISTANCE

  • The distance between the diffusers and the canopy can be adjusted to maintain optimal spray quality however thick the foliage.
  • The pendulum-mounted downpipes keep that distance the same regardless of the tilt.

ADAPTED TO THE HEIGHT OF THE PLANT GROWTH

  • The number of active diffusers can be adjusted according to the height of the plant growth.
  • The diffusers can be adjusted to ensure that the spray goes exactly where it should.

GROUND TRACKING

  • The EOLE spraying ramp is equipped with ultrasound sensors that allow it to precisely monitor variations in height and tilt: The down pipes remain facing the vines.
  • Tilt correction up to 30%.
  • Linked to the suspended ramp and downpipes, the ground tracking keeps working smoothly as you progress.
  • The working height can be memorized with one click on the EASY TOUCH console.

ANTI-DRIFT NOZZLES

  • Each type of anti-drift nozzle has been approved for reducing unsprayed buffer zones.

THREE FANS LOCATED AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE
TO THE DOWNPIPES

  • Minimizes pressure losses.
  • Improves the air flow consistency and thereby the spray quality.

SPRAYING MANAGEMENT

DPAE SYSTEM (ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED FLOW RATE PROPORTIONAL TO FORWARD SPEED)

  • Regulates the flow rate based on the ground speed to maintain a constant spraying rate.
  • Intuitive interface fully integrated on the EASY TOUCH console.
  • With automatic one-click calibration, this system is one of the easiest to use on the market.

GPS TRACKING OF THE SPRAYED ROWS*

  • Makes life easier for the operator, as there is no need to count the rows.
  • Easier to operate: Avoids spraying the same rows twice or forgetting any of them.
  • A file summarizing the work done (customer name, date, surface sprayed, etc.) can be retrieved on a USB flash drive.

MODULAR

EASIER TO USE

  • Automatic hydraulic width adjustment, easily configured and operated on the EASY TOUCH console.
  • Adjustable working width and headland stops.

AVAILABLE RAMP CONFIGURATIONS

  • 3 rows of wide vines.
  • 4 rows of wide vines.
  • 4 rows of narrow vines.

TANK CAPACITY

  • 528 or 793 gallons

SAFE

PRESSURIZED AND FILTERED CAB

  • The cab pressurization is synchronized with the start-up of the sprayer fans: No risk of forgetting.
  • An alarm is triggered if any problem is detected (e.g. a door not properly closed).
  • Hour counter for the active carbon filter on the EASY TOUCH console, with a “time to replace” alert.

EMERGENCY STOP

  • 1 emergency stop accessible from the ground, on the control console.

VARIABLE FLOW PUMP

EFFICIENCY

  • • Spraying, mixing the liquid to be sprayed, filling the tanks from below, and rinsing are all carried out efficiently by the same pump.
  • Maximum flow rate of 69 gallons per minute!
  • Filling the tank and mixing the spray products at the same time is fast and practical.

VARIABLE RUNNING SPEED

  • The rotational speed of the pump is always adapted to the job at hand: Fuel savings.
  • Suitable for spraying from 50 to more than 264 gallons per hectare!

EFFECTIVE MIXING

IN ALL CONDITIONS

  • The mixing of the spray liquid in the tanks is independent of the spraying. Effective mixing regardless of the selected spray pressure.
  • The spray mixture remains consistent throughout the spraying process.

AUTOMATIC STOP

  • The mixing is automatically stopped at the end of the tank to limit the possible appearance of foam.

EFFECTIVE WASHING

MULTIPLE FILTRATION LEVELS

  • Filtration at intake, discharge, and at each downpipe.
  • Reduced risk of clogging.
  • Quick maintenance: All the filters are accessible and located at a level that is easy to reach.

CUSTOMIZED RINSING

  • Across the range, 350 liters of on-board water for more efficient rinsing.
  • The operator can quickly and easily select the rinsing mode from the operating station: tanks, ramp, or mixer independently.
  • If the spraying work has to be interrupted, rinsing the ramp without flushing to the tank prevents the risk of clogging when restarting.

The high-volume Eole VXL sprayer can be configured for use with the industry-standard Pellenc downspouts with pneumatic nozzles or equipped with Cropland fan-style dispersion system.

Pneumatic or Cropland

With both options, you’ll take advantage of the load-sensing Optimum that will reduce fuel costs by only raising engine rpms when needed

Unfolding and folding in one click

Folding / unfolding control with automatic width row spacing adjustment.
Row by row cut-off on all models from the touchscreen.

Flow control

Easy to use cruise control. The Flow-rate Proportional to Forward speed function continuously maintains the programmed spraying concentration, regardless of the working conditions.

Ground tracking

The spraying boom with ultrasonic sensors follows the slope of the land and corrects the gradient by up to 30 %..
