Right: If money is no object, prices for the new Sands 2,500 litre Lowline Airstream Sprayer start at £65,000. Based on the Sands 2500 models, the Airstream is powered by a Deutz 159hp six cylinder air cooled engine. This is said to give enough power to drive the air system at fan exit air speeds up to 144kph without overall machine performance being compromised. Angled air outlet on the boom tilts the crop to help penetration into the thickest canopy, while a 25cm nozzle spacing assists the accuracy of droplet placement. The machine reverts to conventional mode when air assistance isnt needed.
