Predominantly known as a top-end sprayer maker, Horsch is looking to broaden its appeal with the launch of a more economically priced trailed line — the LT — as an alternative to its flagship GS machines. Initially the LT is being marketed with 4,000- and 5,000-litre tanks and booms from 18m to 42m, with a 6,000-litre LT version in the production pipeline. Unlike the firm’s flagship GS trailed machines, however, all LTs are fitted with plastic rather than stainless steel tanks and can be specced at three different levels: Eco (pto drive and manual valves), CCS (hydraulic drive and manual valves) and CCS Pro (hydraulic drive and electric valves). Pumps are either 400- or 600-litre/min piston types, as against the 1,000-litre/min unit installed on the GS. To give a guide comparison, a 5,000-litre LT is priced at about £10,000-£11,000 less than a 6,000-litre GS.
