Compare Agitation Flows with the Nearest Competitors.

Traditional Venturi agitators used by other brands worked well for general chemical spraying. To apply liquid fertilisers or powers effectivley you need maximum agitation and the flexibility to adjust for foamy chemicals, that’s why we developed MixMaxTM

Tank Shape

The unique shape design of the Katipo provides a major break-through in application consistency, which is especially important when applying chemicals to high value crops such as fodder-beet, and that’s why Hustler has gained Design Protection on the shape and mixing efficiency. 

To achieve such a break-through required utilising the latest computer generated flow simulation and a lot of trial-and-error, but we’ve created the perfect flow of liquid within the tank and combined with our new optional MixMaxTM technology you can be assured that your solution is mixed, and stays mixed.

What customers are saying about Katipo?

Wayne Hill, of Te Kuiti is rapt with his new Katipo sprayer. Wayne runs a 20,000 stock unit sheep and beef farm and sprays around 700 hectare each year of pasture and thistle spraying. Operator Tony Van Der Drift says ʺthe Katipo replaces a 400 litre Silvan which broke every time we used it.ʺ Tony highly recommends the Katipo 890 which is spec’d with all the fruit – NZ’s toughest the 8 metre Duraboom, 3 section electric controls, GPS guidance, flushing tanks and a storage box which allows him to take the chemical out on the job. A very nice bit of kit! – Sheep & Beef Farmer, Te Kuiti, New Zealand. Katipo 890
