"As farmers ourselves, we understand our customers' challenges," explained Stephen Burcham, general manager at Horsch. "With that in mind the Leeb LT brings our spraying expertise to operators who do not need the larger capacity sprayer."

The Leeb LT trailed sprayer expand the company's sprayer line-up, featuring 4,000 and 5,000 litre capacities with plastic tanks. All Leeb LT models will feature BoomControl, the award-winning system that keeps the boom highly stable even when driving fast on uneven terrain.

Three specification levels are available with the entry-level ECO model equipped with a piston diaphragm pump with manual operated valves for suction and pressure side.

Above this is the CCS model, which features the automatic internal Continuous Cleaning System, while the CCS Pro model is equipped with a modern electronic system at the suction and pressure side similar to the premium equipment level of the Leeb GS spraying technology. All models have a 500 litre fresh water tank.

Leeb LT boom widths range between 18m and 42m. The sprayer is equipped with load sensing hydraulics to assist the hydraulic systems of the tractor.

The underbody is completely smooth for plant protection with a ground clearance of 85cm and a hydraulic support for parking leg is standard equipment.

Prices start at €75,000 including VAT.
