Horsch VT and PT self-propelleds to get Claas X11 cab

Buyers of Horsch’s latest VT and PT self-propelled sprayers will get a quieter and more spacious workspace, courtesy of Claas.

The X11 cab from the German firm’s high-horsepower harvesters replaces the old X10 offering and, inside, has apparently been fully geared up for spraying.

According to Horsch, the controls are better tailored for crop care work, with the A-column terminal paired with a new Leeb-designed armrest and joystick.

Category 4 filtration is standard and there’s the option of upgrading to pneumatic four-point cab suspension.

The first Horsch machine to get the X11 treatment was the Leeb VT.

The 230hp, 5,000-litre model became the company’s smallest self-propelled sprayer when it, and a slightly larger 300hp, 6,000-litre version, was launched in autumn last year.

Both have power-assisted variable track width from 1.8m to 2.4m, boom options from 24m to 48m, and 25cm nozzle spacing.
