The Horizon 3000 is the lightest and the most compact model in the Horizon range but still offers high spraying outputs with exceptional build quality and reliability. The 3000 models benefit from having our unique Panoramic cab. Designed in house and built in Germany this cab features the latest Category 4 filtration. Comfort, visibility, build quality and ergonomics are to the highest standard and the impressive low noise levels take operator wellbeing to the next stage.
The Horizon 3000 has replaced the renowned Vision 3000 and carries on its ability to offer a high capacity machine at a relatively low overall weight. This allows it to tread lightly in damper conditions whilst still giving the performance required when spraying demands are at their highest.
Power is from the latest Deutz Tier 4 Final, 6-cylinder turbocharged engine driving through Poclain Boosted Braking wheel motors. These are now fitted with Dynamic and Boosted brakes on the front axle for improved stopping capabilities when travelling at higher road speeds. All models benefit from a ‘load sensed’ hydraulic system which allows all operations to be carried out at low engine revs, reducing fuel usage and enabling swifter control of booms when spraying. It also allows a fast fill pump to be used in conjunction with the spray pump to give quicker filling whilst still being able to draw clean water through the induction hopper. Boom folding and unfolding is smooth and quick and enables booms to be folded in unison even on sloping ground.
‘Dual-ride’ suspension is a further development of our hydro-pneumatic system which offers the user a firm or soft ride. The firm setting is primarily for on road use to give a controlled feel at speed and softer when spraying in rough field conditions.
Booms up to 24m are available in either a rigid contour or our unique VG steel boom for boom levelling systems. Sands manufactured steel 3 fold boom sprays at 12, 24 and the wider width and can be fitted with the latest Hypro ‘DuoReact’ nozzle bodies for use with fertiliser dribble bars.
