The MY16 Guardian sprayer/spreader series features three new models: SP.260R, SP.300R, and the SP.300C.
Operators will enjoy the upgrades and enhancements found in the new SP.260R and SP.300R rear boom models. They will experience a smoother ride thanks to the added second rear suspension valve and improved leveling on side hills and crowned roads, and the 6.7L QSC Tier 4B engines can deliver more horsepower while using less fuel. Operators will have the option to choose from a 1,000 or 1,200 gallon tank made from poly or stainless steel tank with both the SP.260R and SP.300R models.
The SP.260R model is rated at 260 horsepower (max 270), and has boom width options of either 90 or 100 feet. This model also features an exclusive angle drive and new fixed axle option that can reduce weight and operating cost, and also means fewer moving parts thanks to the simple design.
The larger SP.300R model is rated up to 300 horsepower (max 310) and can accommodate an optional four wheel drive assist. This model also has the added option of a 120 foot boom, in addition to the 90 and 100 foot options available.
New Holland is pleased to introduce the SP.300C combination unit to the MY16 series. Both combination dry box and combination liquid system are available, but sold separately. Operators can switch between Combo Liquid and Combo Dry systems in approximately one hour. The SP.300C combo chassis come standard equipped with 2 wheel drive and an optional 4 wheel assist and boom widths of 90, 100, or 120 feet.
Combo Dry attachment can be ordered as a single bin/product or as a multi-bin/product configuration. Both feature a hydraulic load sensing system to maintain spread pattern during deceleration. Units with the single bin option feature a 255 cubic feet (8.29 ton) tank, and are MultApplier ready, whereas multi-bin option sprayers feature a small hopper inside the main tank to apply two products. The large main tank is 134 cubic feet (4.35 tons), while the smaller tank is 100 cubic feet (3.25 tons).
The Combo Liquid system offers a 1,200 gallon poly or stainless steel tank, electric rinse system and electric agitation adjustment (standard feature), mono boom or truss boom option, and product circuit hoses stay connected and mounted on skid including an optional educator/induction system.
Both combination options feature quick attach front and rear mounting systems that are spring loaded for operator convenience. The mounts do not have to be removed, but rather the operator is able to loosen and swing out of the way.
