"Stilts" Convert Pickup Into HyRise Sprayer
"It's like getting two sprayers in one," says GVM of its new HyRise pickup sprayer. "What we've done, essentially, is to equip our conventional pickup Hydra-Sprayer with stilts, converting it into a HyRise with 39 in. of crop clearance."
For 1992, GVM is offering the HyRise on "stilted" new Ford F-3504-WD pickups. Key features include 30 or 36 in. row spacing, 400 gal. poly eliptical tank, 50 ft. hydraulic booms with "joy stick" control and mid-boom breakaway, and foam markers.
It takes about 3 hrs. to convert the rig for high-clearance operation on stilts, and about two hours to convert back to normal operation. Road speed of the "stilted" HyRise is about 45 mph.
Complete with a new pickup, it sells for right at $58,000.
