Leeb 6.300 PT and 8.300 PT
The new self-propelled HORSCH Leeb PT sprayers have been developed to offer increased flexibility, comfort and precise application. Two tank sizes are available, 6,000-litre and 8,000-litre, increased ground clearance and a new ComfortDrive chassis concept offer a new level of driving comfort. The unique and award-winning boom control system, BoomControl, is now available in boom widths up to 42m and up to 42 sections.
The ComfortDrive chassis with central frame and hydro-pneumatically spring-loaded individual wheel suspension is a completely new development. Active level regulation provides superb driving comfort on the road, in the field and on slopes. The wheel hub drive provides automatic load-dependent stepless drive and an anti-slip control.
The Avatar SD is a high-performance direct drill with single disc coulter for no-till farming. Available in 3m, 4m, 6m, 8m and 12m working widths, it uses the well-proven components of the Pronto DC seed drills for hopper and metering. The Avatar’s high tare weight and up to 320kg coulter pressure makes it ideal for direct seeding. The strong coulter frame eliminates sideways movement, which ensures that the coulter keeps to the set sowing depth on uneven soils.
Due to the high coulter pressure, depth control of the coulters is carried out via a larger and stronger version of the Pronto’s well-proven rubber suspension. The row spacing is 16.7cm on 3m, 4m, 6m and 8m models and 25cm on the 12m version.
The new Joker RT trailed compact disc harrow has increased flexibility. Available in 5m and 6m working widths, the Joker RT features the DiscSystem with 52cm discs as before, but their arrangement has been changed for improved operation.
The serrated discs offer aggressive working and good soil penetration. They are arranged in pairs, providing a large clearance for harvest residues and are equipped with a maintenance-free solid bearing. The soil adaption and the stone protection is carried out via the well-proven rubber bearing.
The fully integrated lateral sliding frame enables the Transformer VF hoeing tool to be extremely flexible with parallelogram-guided tools. The Transformer VF (VariableFrame) is available in 6m to 12m working widths, is fully compatibility to the ISOBUS standard and can be combined with many camera systems.
The 660mm clearance below the frame is particularly useful when being used in row crops like maize and sugar beet. The clamping profiles are on the inside of a continuous channel enabling the tools to be arranged in a very wide variety of positions. The Transformer VF can cover row spacings from 25cm to 90cm and adjustment is simple and fast with working depth adjusted easily without any tools.
The Cultro TC is a double knife roller with low horsepower requirement, available in 3m and 12m working widths. Used in combination with other machines, the highly flexible Cultro TC provides an excellent cutting in rape or silage maize stubble and in catch crops.
The compact diameter of the roller body allows for a high number of revolutions and number of cuts. This guarantees an intensive crushing of organic material. Six knifes are arranged in a crosscut configuration for a maximum crushing result.
