Case IH's new 1,200-gallon Patriot 4430 comes to market with an enhanced powerplant, featuring a Case IH FPT 8.7 liter engine with 325 base horsepower and a peak horsepower rating of 356 — a combination that provides more than enough power to handle tough field conditions. The new engine is Tier 4a compliant, using Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to meet emissions requirements, and is tuned for maximum power and superior fuel economy. The Surveyor cab has increased area, to an industry-leading 132 cubic feet and 90.1 square feet of total glass, for unmatched leg room and visibility. For added productivity, operators can equip the Patriot 4430 with the exclusive AIM Command spray system, AutoBoom boom height control, AccuBoom boom section control, and AFS AccuGuide autoguidance options. Shipments of the Patriot 4430 sprayer begin in September.
