New Holland's new SF210 and SF216 field sprayers feature heavy-duty construction to ensure dependable and accurate performance even across bumpy, varied field conditions. The SF210 has a 1000 gallon capacity and the SF216 has a 1600 gallon capacity. Both sprayers are available in suspended-boom or wheeled-boom configurations.
The suspended-boom models are available in 80, 90, 100, 120 and 134 foot widths. They feature an innovative, high clearance suspension with parallel tank designed for stability and accuracy. A joystick provides in-cab control of the boom lift, tilt, transport fold and optional foam marker. An outer breakaway boom impact release helps protect the sprayer. The spray boom on suspended-boom models is available in steel or polypropylene.
Wheeled-boom models range in widths from 80 to 134 feet and feature an auto-fold which allows the operator to change from a field to a narrow transport position from the cab. Large bore, automotive style shock absorbers on the boom wheels ensure a smooth ride. A boom breakaway system provides impact protection. Stainless steel, PVC or dry booms are available for wheeled-boom models.
A choice of FlexControl or SP655 electronic auto-rate control allows the operator to make simple application rate changes while driving and provides on-the-go control and monitoring of speed, rate, area covered and volume of spray applied. An induction tank mounted at ground level makes adding and mixing chemicals safer and easier. For operator convenience, the valve tree simplifies control of plumbing and makes drainage easier and a large sight gauge allows the operator to instantly see tank levels at a glance.
Both the SF210 and the SF216 come with an optional windscreen that reduces drift by 86 percent over open-boom sprayers. A perforated design offers excellent protection from the wind, yet allows enough airflow to reduce turbulence.
