Sapphire spec climbs a notch

MORE power and a larger tank capacity feature on the latest self-propelled Sapphire sprayer manufactured by Gem.

Now powered by a six-cylinder, intercooled turbocharged engine rated at 157hp, some 33hp more than that fitted to earlier models, tank capacity has been increased to 3000 litres. The result – the Sapphire 3000L.

Boom widths up to 24m are currently available but Gem is due to announce details of 28m and 30m boom widths. Price of the 3000L starts at £57,500.

157hp and a 3000-litre tank feature on the latest Sapphire self-propelled development from Gem. Price starts at £57,000.
