TWO HEFTY Leeb LT trailed sprayers shown at Cereals from Horsch, will expand the company’s sprayer line-up into 4000 and 5000 litre capacities.

The plastic tank LT models will have BoomControl, an award-winning system that keeps the boom highly stable even when driving fast on uneven terrain.

Three specification levels will be available, with the entry-level ECO model equipped with a piston diaphragm pump and manual operated valves.

Above this, the CCS model has an automatic internal continuous cleaning system, while the CCS Pro has a modern electronic system at the suction and pressure side, similar to the premium equipment level of the Leeb GS spraying technology.

All have a 500-litre fresh water tank and boom widths range between 18m and 42m, with new larger boom widths also available for the Leeb GS. Their ISOBUS operating concept is an in-house development and incorporates innovative functions that ease adjustment, operation and control of the machine.

Nozzle switching is controlled by combinations of 1-0 (nozzle per 50cm) to 4-2 (4 nozzles per 50cm plus 2 nozzles per 25cm). Combined with a target area height of 30cm, this significantly reduces drift and improves plant wetting.

An optional steering axle uses its own gyroscope, meaning that it does not need any connection to the tractor. Only the hydraulic system, road lights and ISOBUS plug is required.

The LT comes with load sensing hydraulics to assist the hydraulic systems of the tractor.
