All-round view and more comfort

ENHANCED creature comforts now adorn Cases SP3000 self-propelled sprayer due to be shown for the first time at Sprays and Sprayers 2002.

Taking a cue from modern combine design, the sprayer has a new cab with a wide, curved glass windscreen for improved views.

Better all-round visibility, says Case, is achieved using four independently controlled mirrors contained in two housings.

For operators wanting to keep their cool, the cab comes with air conditioning, tinted glass and air suspension seat as standard.

New "sure grip" steps, which can be lowered and raised automatically, are designed to provide safer access to the cab.

Fast water filling can be achieved at inlet points at the front and the side of the machine. The sprayer also has a front-mounted pelleter built on a hinged frame to enable the unit to be swung round to the steps for easier filling.

Price of the updated SP3000 remains at £78,500. &#42
