The Atlas has a stylish design which provides one of the lowest centres of gravity in its class enabling a or 3300 or 4400 litre capacities without compromising stability. The heavy duty steering axle has both leaf-spring and air-bag suspension to further enhance stability both on the road and in the field. The steering axle is controlled by a technically advanced steering sensors and a machine slope sensor ensure accurate steering and minimum headland damage and safe maneuverability. A Delta 80 auto rate control system with operator joystick to control the seven section spray sections is also standard. The "Series 3" boom offers widths out to 28m and all boom movements are controlled by electro hydraulics via operators joy stick. The "Series 3" boom can be folded and operated at half width (e.g 24m boom fold to 12m). Nozzles and stainless steel spray lines are fully protected within the boom structure, and a multi-directional 2m break away tip protects against accidental damage. The boom also has tilt correction and boom lock as standard features and the booms can also be specified with independent variable geometry and independent outer boom fold. They are manufactured using a highly durable "lattice style" construction from 3mm & 5mm thick high tensile steel which is then treated with a protective oven baked powder coat finish. Every moving joint on the boom is secured with stainless steel pins which a tab secured to prevent excess wear, each joint also has a greasing point. The "3D" active suspension system controls boom bounce, incline and yaw providing a very stable platform for the spray nozzles, the bounce suspension remains active when the boom is in its transport position.
