Guard your crops

For more than 100 years, New Holland has been serving the needs of farmers and ranchers across North America. The company is continuing that long tradition with its latest introduction: the Guardian sprayer.

“A sprayer is a critical purchase because during the season, producers need total control in the timing of their chemical applications,” says Miles Mackow of New Holland.

The models include four front-boom sprayers with four-wheel hydrostatic drive and two rear-boom sprayers with two-wheel mechanical drive.

Front-Boom Versions

The front-boom versions have up to 365 hp. with a choice of tank sizes ranging up to 1,600 gallons and boom widths up to 120 feet.

A 50-50 weight distribution keeps wheels firmly on the ground for maximum traction and minimum compaction. The high 6-foot ground clearance allows the sprayer to get into the field throughout the entire growing season.

Hydraulic suspension improves spraying accuracy, while at the same time, it provides a smooth ride for the operator.

The four-wheel independent suspension is hydraulically controlled and able to handle the toughest ground conditions. This ensures better boom stability due to the 20 inches of suspension travel on each wheel.

Well-equipped front-boom models range from $270,000 to $335,000.

Rear-Boom Versions

The two rear-boom sprayers, which are available in 240- and 275-hp. models, feature a heavy-duty frame and axle construction.

The mechanical drive system ensures better performance, higher productivity, improved fuel efficiency, and lower operating costs.

Wide coverage and high clearance allow you to spray large areas quickly with models that cover up to 120 feet with each pass and tanks that hold up to 1,200 gallons. Crop clearance of up to 48 inches allows spraying late into the growing season.

Wraparound rear windows make it easy to see the spray boom.

Rear-boom models range in price from $210,000 to $285,000 for well-equipped versions.
