Power to the Ground Technology

Power To The Ground


Strength, simplicity and savings. The Apache has all three, thanks to its patented POWER-TO-THE-GROUND™ technology.

A full 90 percent of an Apache’s horsepower is transferred to the ground, making it more efficient than hydrostat sprayers, which transfer no more than 70 percent of available horsepower to the ground.

With mechanical drive and Power-to-the-Ground technology, Apache Sprayers deliver more horsepower where and when you need it most.


A torque converter doubles the engine’s ability to push the Apache through tough terrain, while a JCB limited slip differential allows for sharper turns and better traction.


  • Apache Sprayers are lightweight and agile by design, weighing 20,000 pounds on average – about 10,000-15,000 pounds less than comparable models – reducing fuel costs and compaction on your soil.
  • The Apache’s mechanical drive transmission has fewer parts than other machines, meaning an Apache is easier to maintain. With its simple construction, the Apache is both rugged and dependable. It can handle even the toughest field conditions.
  • Apache owners appreciate the excellent fuel efficiency. The torque converted mechanical drive achieves an average fuel consumption of four gallons per hour.
  • All Apache Sprayers models have Tier 4 Final Cummins diesel engines, making them a cleaner running sprayer and also a better performing machine.
