New Holland shifted its sprayer boom to the front. With the new Guardian Front Sprayer, farmers can get the view of the sprayer action without turning around. The nozzles are located behind the boom so they are visible from the cab.
There are 4 different models to choose from with up to 350 horsepower. Tank sizes also vary up to 1,600 gallons. Boom widths are available up to 120 feet.
The Guardian cab also offers Deluxe or Luxury models. Price ranges from $275,000 to $350,000 depending on model. Headquarters for New Holland North America is in New Holland, Penn. For more information, call 717-355-1121or visit www.newholland.com/na.
