Apache Sprayers Compare Application Methods

It’s easy to justify investing in an Apache sprayer compared to any other application option. Take the time to compare us against any alternative — pull-type sprayers, custom application, or other self-propelled sprayers. You’ll be glad you did!

Apache Advantages vs. Pull-Type Sprayers

  • Speed. Spray double the acres in the same amount of time.
  • Comfort. Apache’s patented self-leveling hydraulic suspension smooths the ride in the cab.
  • Clearance. Higher clearance allows you to spray later into the season.
  • Performance. Apache offers less crop damage compaction and better fuel efficiency, all without adding hours on your tractor.
  • Resale. Apache retains (on average) 72 percent of its value after five years.

Apache Advantages vs. Custom Application

  • Timing. With lots of acres to cover in a limited window, owning your own sprayer allows you to spray when you need to spray.
  • Quality. Doing it yourself gives you the confidence that it’s done right.
  • Cost. Compare the cost of hiring vs. doing it yourself. You’ll be surprised that in most cases, it’s smarter to spray yourself.

Apache Advantages vs. Hydrostatic Sprayers

  • Cost. Less fuel. Lower ownership cost. Significantly less initial investment. Better resale value.
  • Maintenance. Simple mechanical drive is easier and less expensive to maintain.
  • Compaction. With 3,000 to 14,000 pounds less, Apache is lighter and reduces yield-robbing compaction.
  • Power. Hydrostatic drive sprayers lose up to 30 percent of their horsepower before reaching the ground to power the sprayer. Horsepower is expensive!
