The Vision 3.5E was introduced in 2013 by customer request for a higher capacity Vision model. Based on the previous Vision 4.0 chassis, the 3.5E uses the Tier 3 Deutz engine from the 3000 litre model and the same proven Poclain drive system.
Due to constrictions of overall weight the 3.5E is only available with a 20 or 24m boom. For those wanting the benefits of the longer chassis with a wider boom we offer the 3.0E version.
As with all Sands machines a 'load sensed' hydraulic system allows all operations to be carried out at low engine revs significantly saving fuel and enabling swifter control of booms when spraying. It also allows a fast fill pump to be used in conjunction with the spray pump to give quicker filling whilst still being able to draw clean water through the induction hopper. Boom folding and folding is smooth and quick, and enables booms to be folded in unison even on sloping ground.
Dual-ride' suspension is a further development of our hydro-pneumatic system which offers the user a firm or soft ride. The firm setting is primarily for on road use to give a controlled feel at speed and softer when spraying in rough field conditions.
