New entry-level Horsch Leeb trailed sprayer

The Horsch Leeb 4 AX features the same boom technology as the existing LT and GS versions but then with a more basic specification for smaller farms.

Positioned just below the 4,000-litre 4 LT, the 3,800-litre plastic tank on the 4 AX is complemented by a 400-litre fresh water tank. A pto-driven piston diaphragm pump is available with an output of either 270lit/min or 400lit/min.

The 35-litre induction tank is similar to the one used in the larger trailed sprayer models, and Horsch says that BoomControl Eco enables the AX to maintain a 50cm distance to the crop at operational speeds of up to 15km/hr. Divided in five to nine sections, boom widths are from 18 to 30m, and the standard nozzle spacing is 50cm.

The drawbar can either be equipped with an upper or a lower linkage and the AX is available with an optional drawbar steering system that automatically follows the tractor tracks.

Wheel track widths can be adjusted from 1.5m to 2.25m, and the 4 AX is fully ISObus compatible. Available to order now for delivery next spring, retail prices start from £43,000.
