Self-Propelled Spot Sprayer
"It runs cheaper and doesn't tie up a tractor," says a spokesman for The Hustler Corporation of the Company's new self-propelled spot sprayer.
Powered by a 10-hp, motor, it carries up to three riders and will cover six 40-in. rows, or eight 30-in. rows.
Speed is infinitely variable up to 10 mph. Goes in reverse and is stopped and started by foot control pedals at the center seat position. The rig turns within its own wheel tread width and carries 6 gal. of fuel (enough to run a minimum of 12 hrs. under most field conditions) and 55 gal. of spray solution. The dimensions are: 371/2-in. clearance, 98-in. long, 72-in. wheel base, and 23 x 8.50-12 tires in front, and 27 x 8.50-15 in the rear. Weighs 600 lbs.
Each rider operates a spray gun which has its own independent 12-volt electric pump. The pump runs only when the trigger is pulled for spraying. Sells for $2,975.
