Sam Crop Sprayers - Sands Infinity Self-Propelled Sprayer

The Infinity series comprises two models of 5,000 or 6,000 litre capacity. An all-new chassis means the Infinity can accommodate larger wheels, yet ensures a turning circle of just 7.6 metres, for excellent manoeuvrability on the headlands. Four-wheel steering can be engaged at the touch of a button, with multiple modes to match every operation. These include two different modes that work on all four wheels to provide maximum turn or true tracking. This clever system can be adapted to suit the work in hand, with options including speed-related and spray on/off engagement of the four-wheel system.

The all-new suspension ensures comfortable travel, while those with a wide range of cropping will appreciate a track width that can be adjusted from 72 to 88 inches.  A new hydrostatic transmission offers seamless driving, with traction control as standard, while eco engine management with road and field modes ensures maximum fuel efficiency.

In the cab, key changes include a new armrest that puts all operating functions at the driver’s fingertips. The operator can also have cruise control to ease both field work and long journeys on the road. Further features include the Sands Overhead Screen with full control of filling, lights, machine health check management and hydraulic sliding axles. The high capacity of these new 5,000 and 6,000-litre machines sees a shift to stainless steel tanks, with a larger sump and all pipes plumbed straight into the tank. This ensures all pipework is as short as possible, and because all internal piping is fixed, there are no internal moving parts, save for the six internal cleaning nozzles operating at 8.0 bar pressure.

Externally, the new spraypack features new lighter yet stronger steel booms of up to 40m, with a five-sensor boom levelling system and auto-lowering when folding up. A new powered 40-litre induction hopper that’s part of a new side-mounted filling station features two washing nozzles and an additional hand lance for external cleaning.

HARDI AEON CenturaLine trailed sprayer

Jump behind the wheel of the HARDI AEON CenturaLine trailed sprayer at Croptec 2023 and discover your route into the future of crop care.

The high-tech HARDI AEON sprayer has been developed in guidance by the principles of lean farming: to do more with less. HARDI have used the latest technology and the most up-to-date automation solutions to allow farmers to improve productivity while reducing drift. The HARDI AEON sets a new benchmark for increasing food production during growing environmental and climatic concerns.

The AEON offers perfect tracking, full suspension and a fully remote-operated spraying system; the epitome of durability and toughness. Built as standard with full suspension for protection of all mechanical components and for operator comfort and safety. A new addition is hydraulic suspension of the axle-centre for steady boom movements and to fully absorb movements. Combine this with incredibly fast fluid regulation, pressurised boom circulation and an exceptional boom management system, and the result is outstanding boom stability, spraying precision and drift control – translating into real savings for the grower.


Also manufactured with the addition of PrimeFlow; HARDI’s pressure-fed boom fluid-system that guarantees rapid priming and prevents sedimentation and clogging, is another benefit for customers. When spraying starts, liquid has already been distributed to the entire boom. When spraying stops, the liquid continues to circulate at a standby pressure. Even when spraying at low pressure, the operator can be confident that the spray lines are completely drained, leaving only a small residual volume, meaning less liquid is required for cleaning.

Available with tank capacity of 4200 and 5200 litres, and boom widths from 24 to 39 metres, the AEON is the solution to the future of crop care for the forward-thinking farmer.
