Mounted sprayer

Evening all, We are looking to change our mounted Kuhn Optis 1200L 12M 2018 sprayer. This has been a seriously good machine both strong, well designed and more important than anything 100% reliable. It hasn’t got a serious amount of mod cons just electri on/off, hydraulic slant & hydraulic up & down. Obviously the 1st choice will be a Kuhn Deltis 2 with 1500L tank & 16m booms. The main reason for upgrade is hydraulic folding booms, larger tank, wider booms. Are there any of the competitors slightly better than Kuhn in these models? TIA

21m is a good compromise, by blanking end nozzles off, you can follow either 3m or 4m drills.
I looked at 16m, fearing going too wide, but was persuaded to buy 20m instead and very glad I did. 12m now looks just ridiculous.

Thanks for the response by everyone, I should mention that all spraying is done without tramlines and 90% is grassland. Thanks again
