    ProAction-Flex® Boom - Versatile self-propelled sprayers boast an impressive boom system with an extreme-duty design. The boom was built with the most efficient strength-to-weight lattice-style construction. The rugged centre section is ideally balanced due to the high centre mount pivot location. The ProAction-Flex® boom was designed to ensure your sprayer performs where it matters most. The full boom suspension utilizes a tandem tube rubber torsion system, anchored to an advanced parallel boom linkage.

    With the ProAction-Flex Boom, you’re able to tilt and/or lock the full length of the boom in place, keeping it parallel with the terrain while maintaining proper distance from the spray tip to target. In fact, it’s so strong and finely balanced; you can turn at speed without it dipping into the crop.

    Now available is the 120' Falcon Aluminum Boom. Constructed of high-strength, aluminum tubing the Falcon boom is lightweight providing even more yaw dampening for the most accurate product application.

    Product Tanks

    Two product tank options are available, a 1000 gallon (3785 L) poly tank with 100 gallon (378 L) supplemental rinse tank or a 1200 gallon (4540 L) stainless steel tank with an integrated 120 gallon (454 L) rinse tank. The stainless steel and poly tank were designed specifically for proper mounting onto the frame rails, and C channel frame design of the SX240 and SX280 to hold the tanks securely in place at all times. The 100 gallon (378 L) black poly rinse tank is conveniently molded to interlock with the main poly tank to save space and improve function.

    Fill Station - The operator/product load station is well-labeled with large clear instructional decals and logical valve orientations. All points easily accessible from the ground for safety and to reduce refill time.

    Refuelling and Electrical Access - A retractable ladder has been included on the right side of the machine for easy fuel filling. The ladder stores and unlatches easily and has been built for easy access to the 130 gallon (492 L) fuel tank and to the right hand swing out cab panel that conceals the dual batteries and other electrical components. 12V boost points, and the full battery disconnect switch are conveniently located for easy access from ground level.

    Dual - rear tire configurations for 320/90 R50 and 380/90 R46 tire/wheel sizes with new JCB rear drop legs. Available for 22" and 30" tire spacing.

    Front Entry - The new folding front entry access ladder drops to just 16" (40 cm) off the ground making access easy. Disengaging the parking brake lifts the ladder into a field-ready position for clear visibility ahead position.

    Storage and Load Station Lighting - A convenient operating light illuminates the load station area for efficient use in low light conditions. Two new large storage compartments provide space for protective clothing, gloves, foam concentrate, spray tips and spare parts etc.

    MaxTorque® Mechanical Drive - The SX240 and SX280 feature the advanced MaxTorque® two-wheel mechanical drive system. Its superior power-to-the-ground mechanical drive operates at lower RPMs than hydrostatic drives, providing a level of fuel efficiency that will literally save you thousands of dollars each year.

    Engine - The QSB6.7L Cummins engine powers the SX240 and SX280 providing 240 or 280 hp. The SX240 produces an impressive 730 ft-lb of torque at 1500 rpm while the SX280 produces 760 ft-lb of torque at 1800 rpm. The Cummins VGT improves the engines responsiveness and delivers more low speed torque. A diesel particulate filter and exhaust gas recirculation system allows the SX240 and SX280 to meet emission standards without the use of an additional fluid.

    Differential - A hydraulic locking JCB differential and efficient gear drive drop boxes are used to further increase power-to-the-ground performance of the SX240 and SX280.

    Transmission - A heavy-duty 5-speed Allison automatic transmission provides seamless and responsive shifting. The Allison transmission allows for speeds up to 35 mph (57 km/h). A locking torque converter helps reduce fuel consumption and increase efficiency. The machine can be operated using the foot-throttle or hand-accelerator and, combined with cruise control, make this self-propelled sprayer among the easiest in the industry to operate.
