new_guardian_sf.400fNew Holland introduces new Tier 4B Guardian™ front-boom sprayer models including the highest-capacity sprayer in the business, the SP.400F. In addtition to a revolutionary front-boom design, this model features industry-leading horsepower, combined with the available 1,600 US/gallon tank and 120-foot boom options to cover more acres faster than ever.

“With the boom in front, you get the best visibility without looking over your shoulder. You can spray and never look back,” says Sheldon Gerspacher, Crop Production Equipment Segment Leader. “Nozzles are located behind the front boom, providing complete, unrestricted view of every nozzle. Operating a front-mount sprayer reduces operator stress, which increases productivity and maximizes acres covered. In short, these sprayers allow producers to do more with every minute of their time.”

Industry-leading horsepower, ground clearance, ride and radius plus 1,600 US/gallon tank and 120-foot boom options
Producers can now choose from four front-boom Guardian sprayer models with two chassis sizes. The sprayers are now powered by Cummins engines (rated at 300, 320 or 380 horsepower) with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology to comply with Tier 4B emissions standards.

All Guardian sprayers feature four-wheel hydrostatic drive as standard equipment. For those who prefer it, a four-wheel crab steering option is available for maneuvering on side hills and reducing wheel track crop damage. Both configurations feature an industry-leading tight turning radius for maneuvering in tight spaces and providing effortless headland turns.

There is no need to add duals to the rear axle on this sprayer. A balanced 50/50 weight distribution disperses weight equally to all four tires for maximum traction and flotation. With industry-leading boom height and the six-foot ground clearance, Guardian sprayers have the ability to get into the field throughout the growing season, which is especially vital for late season corn applications.

The unique hydraulic suspension, which provides excellent stability and the smoothest ride in the industry, improves spraying accuracy while further increasing operator comfort. The four-wheel independent suspension is hydraulically controlled and allows for a suspension travel on each wheel of 20 inches to handle the toughest ground conditions. This also ensures better boom stability and superior traction no matter what the terrain.
