MAKO 400HC and the NEW MAKO 440
Terry County Tractor
Last winter, GVM introduced the Mako 400HC, a self propelled sprayer that was the answer to the hole in the equipment market after the elimination of the SpraCoupe.
Designed for farmers and applicators with small fields or small jobs, the Mako will be the smallest self-propelled sprayer in the marketplace. Small, stable, and nimble, the Mako features a 400 gallon tank, multiple boom options, 46 inches of crop clearance, a light footprint and a tight turning radius.
“One of the best things about this Mako Sprayer,” says Doug Melcher, who sells them at Terry County Tractor, “is the Cummins diesel engine which powers the lightweight self-propelled sprayer. It’s built on the Tier 3 extension which means there are no emissions to mess with.”
GVM recently announced the upcoming launch and delivery of the Mako 440. With 36” of clearance, the Mako 440 will accommodate farmers and applicators who favor low center of gravity.
“What’s great about this new machine is that it provides comfort and stability for any user,” says Mark Anderson, President and Owner of GVM Inc. “Farmers and applicators all have different preferences and we are eager to provide another clearance option.”
The smallest, most compact self-propelled sprayer in the marketplace; the Mako is the perfect machine to get into fields early when grounds are wet.
Tow-N-Blow Portable Wind Machines
Southwest Ag Spec
The Tow & Blow is a portable and extremely affordable wind machine, which is highly effective in combating freezing temperatures, or frost, as well as soaring temperatures and the associated sunburn in plants. It is a highly adaptable wind machine that can be used in valleys as well as hilly terrain, and it can be easily relocated – so it protects trees, vines and any horticultural or viticultural crop against frost in the most challenging environments.
The Tow & Blow portable wind machine raises up to 26’ above the ground and features an Auto Start function when a specified temperature triggers the fan to kick on. Both the fan and the rotation/ oscillation of the machine will operate once the set start temperature is reached.
“The fact that the Tow & Blow is portable is a big selling point,” says Steve Newsom. “This machine can be moved from one spot in the vineyard and isn’t stationary. It’s easy to set up and has an adjustable rotation speed.”
The Tow & Blow can also be used for assisting with pollination and comes with water misting option for cooling. There are no “specialty parts,” all are available worldwide which means you don’t have to rely on the manufacturer for unique spare parts.
