Adapted to your needs, this sprayer benefits from a simple, yet efficient design and offers exceptional ergonomics in use. The level of equipment is the same as that of a large-scale farming sprayer. The aluminium boom, mounted on the OPTILIFT suspended parallelogram suspension system, guarantees the highest level of quality and reliability.

Above all, ALTIS 2 are simple, easy to use and reliable:
quick and easy coupling, simple and care-free operation and simple and intuitive electronic control solutions.
With their light weight, suspension in transport and 3D suspension, ALTIS 2 sprayers are designed to offer constant balance throughout the spraying operation to ensure high output and total reliability.

Your benefits

A well-balanced, lightweight and stable assembly

L-shaped welded chassis

L-shaped frame

You can't always use your largest tractor for spraying operations; therefore, the design of the frame and the "OPTILIFT" parallelogram features the lightest unladen weight configuration on the market and the centre of gravity is positioned close to the tractor. The sprayer hitch system is integrated within the machine's outline keeping the sprayer close to the tractor and reducing the lift requirement.

Well-balanced tanks

The special shape of the main tank makes it easy to empty, even on steep slopes: the deep and double-sloped sump reduces the residual volumes. The position of the rinsing tank opposite the sump maintains the balance of the assembly throughout the spraying operation.
Nominal tank capacity: 1,500, 1,800 and 2,000 litres.
Actual tank capacity: 1,680, 1,900 and 2,280 litres.
Rinsing tank capacity: 230 litres.
A lightweight tank that's easy to drain and rinse

EASY-HITCH automatic hitching: connect, reverse and lift

The EASY-HITCH automatic hitching system, standard on the ALTIS 2 sprayer, provides quick, comfortable and safe hitching. The pump is positioned at the rear of the sprayer, thereby offering easy access for maintenance, but above all you benefit from a long PTO which helps with hitching up. The operator can maintain enough space for making connections before backing up and locking the sprayer in place. The EASY-HITCH triangle is automatically locked and secured, with no risk of it becoming unhitched during operations.

OPTILIFT parallelogram for suspension of the boom on the road and in the field

A parallelogram just like on the larger models

OPTILIFT is a key feature of ALTIS 2 sprayer. Nowadays, many manufacturers of trailed and self-propelled sprayers have swapped sliding mast lifting systems in favour of parallelogram lifting systems. ALTIS 2 mounted sprayers have naturally followed this trend by proposing the OPTILIFT parallelogram lifting system, essential to sprayer performance.

The OPTILIFT parallelogram is not just a boom lifting solution; the boom supports and nitrogen accumulator provides complete boom protection both during transport and field work with excellent flexibility.

Large height range

The OPTILIFT parallelogram features a 2.50 m working height (when hitched to the tractor) and allows the boom to be lifted high for work in tall crops. Compared to the many sliding mast models available on the market, this often represents an additional 50 to 80 cm in working height.
The parallelogram allows the nozzle to be positioned at a height of 2.5 m

Suspension in transport

When in the transport position, the boom is not fixed but is suspended directly by the OPTILIFT parallelogram. All irregularities in the road are thus dampened, and the boom is protected.

TRAPEZIA suspension

Specially designed for RHPM, MTS2 and MTA3 booms, the TRAPEZIA boom suspension is perfectly adapted to the ALTIS 2 sprayer.
The TRAPEZIA suspension is monitored by two rods that hold the boom, as well as two springs that allow the boom to naturally follow sloping terrain. Tilt correction is mechanical and automatic. A hydraulic tilt corrector is available for more specialised applications.
Main characteristics:
  • 2 stabilising links
  • Automatic mechanical tilt corrector
  • Hydraulic tilt corrector

EQUILIBRA suspension

The EQUILIBRA suspension with pendulum links provides the boom with a three-dimensional shock absorption system. The EQUILIBRA suspension system allows the boom to remain perfectly parallel to the ground when driving over rough terrain. The boom runs smoothly over the ground and the crops without shifts or drifts!

On uneven terrain, the combination of a pendulum and links offers sufficient freedom of movement to keep the boom steady, regardless of the type of terrain encountered. Two shock absorbers also dampen and limit vertical movements to keep the boom perfectly level, especially when cornering at high speed.
The EQUILIBRA suspension is designed to work in intensive conditions and includes an independent anti-whiplash system protecting the boom while cornering or during acceleration/braking.

  • Robust pendulum movement
  • Link rods for radial movement
  • Shock absorbers to eliminate any rebounds
  • Independent left/right anti-whiplash system
  • Spring-loaded automatic tilt corrector
  • Frame locking

Simple and complete operation

The spraying circuit consists of just 3 valves

Simple and well-designed spraying circuit

Sprayer set-up is a key step in the spraying application. With two main valves, the total number of filling operations required before rinsing is considerably reduced, and so is the risk of error. With a simple circuit, all sprayer actions are under control. With the ALTIS 2 sprayer, imagine what you can do before even touching a valve!
Even after not having used the sprayer for quite some time, getting back into the hang of it is easy.

Although easy to use, its shorter circuit allows for reduced dead volumes, which simplifies the rinsing process. When you're finished spraying, you can be assured that the sprayer is entirely rinsed!

MANUSET operation

Manual MANUSET operation offers you complete control when preparing your products. With only 2 main manual valves, all of the sprayer's functions are controlled from the operator's control station.
With the 360° multifunction handwheels, handling operations are reduced by up to 50%. Thanks to an ergonomic design, the valves are easily operated for a simple, trouble-free set-up. Multifunction handwheels make spraying easier.
During rinsing, a 360° rotation with the delivery circuit handwheel ensures that the water drawn in by the pump is conveyed into all sprayer circuits. The rinsing tank level gauge at the work station allows for even easier sequencing of the rinsing operations.
MANUSET manual operation, simple and economical

DILUSET+ operation

Rinsing of the sprayer or the boom, from the cab.
Suction filling is programmable and stops automatically when the setpoint is reached. A dual control also allows you to maintain control of all the functions from the operator's control station.
During rinsing, and without exiting the tractor cab, simply click the terminal to draw in water. Then send it where you want it to go: to the rotary washers to rinse the tank, or directly to the boom to rinse boom pipes, without diluting the spray mixture in the tank.
Finally, the actual volume remaining in the tank can be displayed on the in-cab terminal throughout the entire spraying operation.
Available with REB3 / VISIOREB / ISOBUS terminals.

e-set operation

Rinsing of the sprayer or the boom only, from the cab.
Suction filling is programmable and stops automatically when the setpoint is reached. The "EASYSET" remote unit allows the operator to control all functions from the operator control station.
During the rinsing process, the RINS ASSIST system automates the rinsing sequence based on the amount of product remaining in the machine. The system ensures 1% dilution of the tank residue.
Finally, the actual volume remaining in the tank can be displayed on the in-cab terminal throughout the entire operation.
Available with REB3 / VISIOREB / ISOBUS terminals.

Quick and safe incorporation of crop protection products

The sprayer's 35-litre chemical induction bowl is characterised by its funnel shape, enabling efficient incorporation of all types of products: liquids, powders and granule. The rinsing system consists of 2 rotary nozzles designed to clean jugs, measuring cups, containers and the chemical induction bowl.
The induction bowl has only one valve through which the active ingredient can be introduced into the circuit. This valve is safely actuated by a foot pedal thus avoiding the need for the operator to bend down. All other operations are carried out using the hand-held lance located nearby. The induction bowl is rinsed with the cover closed, thereby preventing any risk of splashing or misting.
