Simplicity Drives Apache 2017 Model Year Sprayer Enhancements

MOORESVILLE, Indiana (August 25, 2016) – Following the enormously successful cab and engine upgrade of 2016 sprayer models, Apache 2017 model year sprayer buyers will benefit from a list of enhancements designed to simplify operation, enhance durability and take precision application to the next level.

Standard Apache spray booms now feature leak-proof, quick-service Banjo® boom manifold fittings, Hypro® nozzle bodies and
optional stainless steel boom plumbing. Apache’s 90- and 100-foot booms have also been re-engineered to provide increased structural strength, making them ideal for rough field conditions.

For larger operators needing to cover more acres in less time, Apache has added a factory-installed 100-foot Pommier aluminum boom option to the lineup of 120 and 132 Pommiers, providing a lightweight alternative and more configuration flexibility.

In-cab sprayer diagnostics are more user-friendly and intuitive. The in-cab display now features a smart diagnostics module that allows the operator to easily diagnose and troubleshoot all key machine systems, including engine and transmission controllers, joystick, display and more, reducing down-time and potential service costs for the operator.

For those looking for state-of-the-art precision performance, the optional new Raven Hawkeye™ Application Control System provides industry-leading precision application, including optional nozzle-by-nozzle on/off control based on gps and field maps. A new turn compensation feature reduces over- and under-application of product through turns by maintaining precise application rates based on the amount of area covered by each part of the boom.

A new optional direct chemical injection system allows operators to mix concentrated chemicals in-line, reducing chemical waste and making tank rinse-out faster and easier.

Operators with Apache 30-Series 1000- and 1200-gallon sprayers (Tier 4 Final) will experience a smoother ride at both application and road speeds with ZF transmission tuning refinements designed to provide precision transmission shifting.

Finally, adjust-on-the-go machines with adjustable axles now feature improved accessibility from the newly designed ladder.

“More and more farmers are starting to pencil out the financial benefits of doing their own application,” said Matt Hays, CEO of Equipment Technologies. “As they do, they’re comparing features, ease of use, warranty, durability, cost of operation and return on investment. Because we’re 100 percent focused on self-propelled sprayers, across the board, Apache has the competition beat.”
