Horsch will showcase it’s latest sprayer model, the Leeb VT, at Agritechnica 2023.
The machine combines variable track adjustment with the performance of a Leeb PT self-propelled sprayer. The flexible track adjustment suits mixed crop farms and contractors requiring varying row widths between 1.8m and 2.4m, assisting with stability in the field and manoeuvrability on the road.
Leeb VT features a 5000 or 6000 litre tank with a 230hp and 300hp (and Stage 5 emissions) engine respectively. The smaller model has a new OptiGear drive system which makes efficient use of compact components. The Leeb VT is also the first model to feature a new state-of-the-art comfort cabin pre-fitted for category IV filtration.
There is an advanced A-column terminal as standard, and the armrest and joystick were specifically adapted to crop care applications. Pneumatic 4-point cabin suspension will be available as an option in the future.
Stephen Burcham, general manager for Horsch UK, said: “We are always innovating and developing our product range based on feedback from our customers, and from what the Horsch family learn farming our own land in Europe. The new HORSCH Leeb VT sprayer has a variable track which will be of great interest to contractors, and we expect this to increase sales of our self-propelled sprayers in the UK into a new sector of the market.”
