HORSCH Leeb PT 280
The HORSCH Leeb PT 280 self-propelled sprayer features an 8000-litre tank, advanced BoomControl Pro and a 285hp Mercedes engine. The PT 280 uses a proven hydrostatically stepless-hydroshift gear unit and mechanical axis drive, instead of hydraulics motors, for better traction in hilly terrain. The road speed is now 50kph.
A unique feature of all HORSCH Leeb sprayers is the award-winning BoomControl Pro system. It holds the boom rock-steady, even over undulating terrain, allowing the boom to positioned close to the crop. HORSCH research shows that distance from the crop is the key factor in reducing drift and increasing crop penetration, allowing farmers to make the most of valuable herbicides and pesticides.
