Equipment Technologies adds Apache Plus to sprayer line

Equipment Technologies, Inc. (E.T.) announces the addition of the Apache Plus to its line of self-propelled sprayers. The Apache Plus becomes the big brother to Equipment Technologies' Apache line, which has been in production since 1997.

The Plus is an out-growth of market research that indicated a growing segment of farmers and applicators want a mechanically driven sprayer with high crop clearance and faster road speeds to reduce field-to-field travel times.

The Apache Plus offers increased product capacity with its 850 gallon tank, over 42 inch crop clearance, and 35-plus MPH road speed.

In addition, the Apache Plus is designed with adjustable axles to accommodate varying row widths and offers boom lengths ranging from 60 to 100 feet.

The overall Apache design allows these sprayers to run in conditions other units have trouble with, such as long, steep slopes or soft, mucky fields.

From an operator's perspective, the Apache Plus offers E.T.'s popular “Hydra-Glide” six-speed, powershift transmission, which gives the feel and convenience of hydrostatic controls, but with the rugged reliability of mechanical components.
