At the Agritechnica Innovations Press Conference HORSCH announced that in 2020 a new and innovative tandem axle sprayer with a capacity of 12,000 litres will be launched. It will be equipped with an innovative tandem axle and tank system.
With the Leeb 12 TD HORSCH now enters the market of trailed sprayers with an extremely large capacity of 12,000 litres and lifts the technology of the Leeb LT and GS to a new dimension. The sprayer is interesting for large farms, farms that have to cover large distances, but also for farmers who due to their crops require a high application rate. Similar to the well-proven Leeb sprayers, there are numerous equipment options for the TD model. The CCS Pro version for example is equipped with a modern electronic system at the suction and pressure side and has become established as almost the highest quality standard in plant protection.
The tandem axle is an intelligent solution for the distribution of the vertical load.
The boom widths are available up to 42 m and derive from the newly presented self- propelled sprayers Leeb 6.300 and 8.300 PT.
A highlight of the Leeb TD is the ISOBUS operational concept. It has been developed by HORSCH and uses of a lot of user-friendly functions that facilitate adjustment, handling and monitoring. Part of it is the nozzle switching with a nozzle spacing of 50 or 25 cm. Together with the well-proven BoomControl system it allows for a target area boom height of 30 cm, thus allowing for an enormous drift reduction and optimisation of the plant wetting.
