FM 4000-series

The Fasterholt FM 4000-series consists of four self-propelled irrigators with a turbine engine. All FM machines are built with a new undercarriage with a strong rear axle assembly, and they all have electronic control. I will roll up by slowly riding back to the starting point, thanks to the “return to home” mode. The FM machines are known for being very dependable with advanced technic. They are perfect for quality-conscious farmers.

The advantage of the FM machines is that they come with extra-long hoses and a newly developed turbine with big efficiency that ensures energy and very low-pressure drop. The construction is very simple, which guarantees minimal maintenance.

The turbine draws an oil pump, which controls an oil motor in the rear axle assembly. This makes it possible to change the speed from 10 to 90 m/hour without further loss of pressure depending on what oil pump you choose.
