Power-to-the-Ground Technology

Strength, simplicity and savings. The Apache Sprayer 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 hydrostatic sprayers, which transfer approximately 70 percent of available horsepower to the ground.

Power Conversion: 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.

Superior Ground Contact: Apache Sprayers feature flex-frame construction that ensures all four wheels are always on the ground. Lock-up torque converter and limited slip differential create a constant contact with the ground rear wheels and keep them turning no matter the field conditions.

More Power Per Pound:

  • Hydrostatic machines require more horsepower because of added weight from wheel motors and pumps.
  • The Apache’s lighter construction provides more Power-to-the-Ground™ than competing sprayers.
  • The Apache’s mechanical drive transmission has fewer parts than hydrostat machines, meaning an Apache is easier to maintain. Despite its simple construction, the Apache is 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.

APACHE AND COMPETITOR COMPARISONS

List price is based on a sprayer with fenders, premium leather seat, 100 foot boom, Viper® 4, AccuBoom™, UltraGlide AutoBoom® and SmarTrax™ AutoSteer. Power-to-the-Ground™: HP per 1,000 lbs is calculated by: hp x efficiency ÷ weight x 1,000.
