Closing the gap between the company’s previously largest single axle UX Super 6201 (6,200 litres) and tandem axle UX Super 11201 (11,200 litres), main features of the two newcomers include the newly developed chassis.

The forward-sloping design is not only claimed to maintain an ideal weight distribution but also provides good ground clearance. Tall and easily-damaged crops are protected by the optional underbelly cover.

Boom options include the Super-L3, which are equipped with the ContourControl active boom guidance system and the SwingStop active vibration damping system as standard.

With pivot points at 12, 24 and 33m and the optionally available reduction joints on the boom outer sections, the Super L3 boom offers the flexibility for use at reduced working widths. One-sided independent folding up to the inner boom section is an advantage for negotiating obstacles.

The two piston diaphragm pumps provide an output of 250lit/min (spray pump) and 350lit/min (agitation pump).
