Following its acquisition by John Deere in 2017, the Italian self-propelled manufacturer Mazzotti has now become an officially endorsed brand. Having already been integrated with John Deere technology, processes, components and parts, as well as having the support of the dealer network, this next step signifies that customers will receive the same levels of product quality, parts availability and service support throughout the life cycle of the sprayers that they would expect to receive from any other John Deere dealer supplied machine.
While the company’s machines will continue to be separately branded, the logo will now include ‘by John Deere’ underneath the Mazzotti name. The new logo was publicly seen for the first time at the 2021 EIMA show in Bologna, Italy this month.
The new endorsement is supported by the continual development of the Mazzotti product range, which already features John Deere engines, cabs, the M-Spray dual-circuit solution system and precision ag systems. Parts will now be available through the European Parts Distribution Centre in Germany and all machines supported by the John Deere Dealer Technical Assistance Centre.
Mazzotti’s MAF self-propelled sprayers are sold through selected dealers in the UK and Ireland to complement the John Deere model range and John Deere states that it now offers the widest choice of machines in the EU and CIS markets. Mazzotti produces compact sprayers with a front cab configuration, and special features including variable ground clearance, independent suspension and the Air Assist spray system.
For 2022, the MAF 2580 and 3180 and the high performance 3580HP and 4080HP models, with tank capacities from 2,500 to 4,000 litres, will receive newly updated stylings, with stronger one-piece side shields and lower profile shielding for better over the shoulder visibility. They will also include improved access to the solution tank and engine, and a new rear axle flow divider option for hydrostatic models that provides increased traction in extreme conditions.
The larger MAF 4240, 5240 and 6240 (4000 to 6000-litre capacities) sprayers will be fitted with the John Deere combine cab for delivery from May 2022.
