Individual variable rate application of up to 4 crop nutrients is possible with the latest self-propelled dry fertiliser spreader from John Deere.
Powered by a 9-litre Deere PowerTech engine channelling up to 400hp through a continuously variable transmission, the F4365 is said to operate faster more comfortably thanks to leaf-spring axle suspension front and rear.
