Increase Performance, Fuel Savings & Lower Operating Cost with Apache Sprayers

Increasing performance, maximizing fuel savings, and lowering maintenance costs drove Apache Sprayers to install the Cummins Performance Series in new Apache AS850, AS1050, and AS1250/XP sprayers. The Cummins Performance Series engines are equipped with the power and torque required to conquer the roughest field conditions.

“Apache Sprayers by Equipment Technologies is one of the first in the U.S. to adopt Cummins Performance Series power and are dual certified to comply with EU Stage V – the strictest emissions standard globally – as well as EPA Tier 4 Final.”

An increase in both power and savings

“With the new Cummins Performance Series engines, Apache sprayers receive a performance boost of up to 15% due to the increased power and torque available throughout the engine speed range. They are also more productive on the farm, saving farmers 8% in fuel with an overall combined fuel and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) saving of 3%. Not only does this have significant environmental and sustainability benefits, but it also lowers operating costs – which is a big win for our customers.

“Apache Sprayers is happy to collaborate with Cummins to introduce the Performance Series Engines into our sprayer line-up.”

Increase Performance

Powered by either the Cummins B4.5 or B6.7 Performance Series engines, Apache AS series sprayers are equipped with both the power and torque required to conquer the toughest field conditions. The B4.5 and B6.7’s simpler architecture and EGR-free design means each engine is lighter and more compact than its predecessor, supporting ET’s objective of light-in-the-field machines for less soil compaction and reduced fuel consumption.

Increased fuel efficiency, longer service intervals, and reduced maintenance costs mean more savings.

Lower Operating Cost

Apache self-propelled sprayers are one of the first in the U.S. to adopt Cummins Performance Series power and are dual-certified to comply with EU Stage V – the strictest emissions standard globally – as well as EPA Tier 4 Final.

Cummins’ new Single Module™ Aftertreatment System is up to 40% smaller and 20% lighter than previous systems and is positioned vertically on the new AS sprayers to facilitate new storage features while maintaining visibility from the cab.
