Air Ride self propelled sprayer


Househam Air Ride self propelled sprayer

The well-proven and ever popular AIR RIDE machine is designed for optimum crop care. In common with all Househam self-propelled machines, significant weight reduction is a key feature of its design with the aim of minimising soil compaction and widening the window of opportunity for timely chemical applications. 

Four wheel steer reduces crop damage and keeps headland size to a minimum. Power is provided by an ultra-reliable and fuel efficient CAT engine and, in conjunction with users, our Advanced Engineering team has designed and developed our own dedicated electronic rate controller.

The TMC (Total Machine Control) integrates many functions into one simple-to-use touch screen console. Add this to our FieldMaster GPS system, which was also designed and developed in-house, and you have a truly effective and efficient machine for both chemical or liquid fertiliser application.

AIR RIDE tank capacities of 3000, 3500 or 4000 litres and boom widths ranging from a 24 metre twin-fold to a 36metre triple-fold can be specified. In addition, a triple-fold boom arrangement is available from 28metres. Both boom arrangements have been engineered to ensure that the centre of gravity of the machine is as low as possible. 

AIR RIDE machines come with an exceptionally high specification and can be adapted to suit operator requirements. The impressive list of standard equipment on the AIR RIDE is so advanced that it literally takes the hard work out of crop spraying. The superb panoramic cab offers the best operator visibility of any similar machine on the market today.  The AIR RIDE is also available with hydraulically adjustable axles as an option. The machine is also available with high clearance.
