More suited to cotton and vegetable farming, the 2230 has a 2498 litre main tank and is powered by a 175hp (130kW) FPT engine.
"Its capabilities in the field are proof you can get all the features of a big sprayer in a small-chassis package," said Alyx Selsmeyer, High Horsepower and Sprayer Product Manager for Case IH Australia New Zealand.
"This is a cost-efficient machine with the Patriot DNA." Ms Selsmeyer said one of the unique features of the 2230 was that it had the highest clearance of all the Patriot models, and other competitor models. On R42 tyres, the clearance is 158cm.
Other features on the 2230 include AccuBoom Automatic boom section control that automatically turns off boom sections when entering an area that has already been sprayed and AutoBoom automatic boom height control that detects changes in terrain and adjusts the booms accordingly.
In the technology stakes, the 2230 was the same as that for the larger Patriots, with the likes of the AccuGuide autoguidance system as standard, and the option available for AIM Command FLEX, the spray system that helps maintain optimal coverage over a range of speeds and terrain.
