In 1997 when Equipment Technologies was founded, the commitment was to produce a tough simple and reliable sprayer.
Numerous conversations with growers paved the way for our innovative solution. We prioritized a mechanical drive system that not only simplifies operation but also ensures easy maintenance and optimal efficiency.
With over 8500 sprayers in operation, the Apache stands out as the most sought-after mechanical drive sprayer in the current market.
The Apache represents more than just a method of propelling the sprayer; it embodies a comprehensive concept that elevates every aspect of its performance and efficiency.
The advantages of mechanical drive are evident in increased power to the ground, reduced cabin noise, lighter overall weight, enhanced fuel efficiency, lower maintenance costs, and improved boom ride.
Under the hood, the Apache relies on a dependable 6.7-liter Cummins engine, coupled with a lock-up torque converter and a ZF 6-speed power-shift transmission. This combination provides the Apache with the best power-to-ground ratio per kilo, surpassing competitors in its class.
The Apache Range boasts boom sizes ranging from 24 to 40 meters and tank capacities from 2460 to 4540 liters. Offering flexibility in tire sizes, plumbing options, and customizable features such as GPS and controllers, the Apache allows you to tailor your sprayer to meet your specific needs.

The Apache gives you the lowest cost of ownership in the industry. Years of data show that the Apache constantly has lower service and operating costs, lower cost for replacement parts, greater fuel savings and higher resale values, plus a lower purchase price than its competitors. Calculations show the Apache is $100 -$200 LESS per hour to own than most comparable sized sprayers.
Going to work has never been so comfortable, or quiet, as it is in an Apache. The flex frame chassis, patented suspension and ergonomic seat soak up the bumps, providing a smooth ride. A custom cab has excellent visibility of the boom, front tyres and forward position.
The touch screen display informs the operator of the engine vitals, and is the control centre for power mirrors, throttle settings, diagnostics and more.
The joystick allows the operator to easily change gears, RPM, adjust boom height and control wing tilt. The rear-view camera, cruise control, quality Bluetooth radio all add to operator comfort.
