Tuatahi Farming Partnership runs 5500 hectares in 2 large Sheep, Beef & Deer Stations west of Turangi and needed a sprayer for 1200 hectares of spraying each year. One of Hustler’s specialists recommended GPS section control, due to the odd shape paddocks and terrain, and made it easy for them by integrating with the Trimble system on their new tractor…


1200 hectares each year of pasture and herbicide spraying consumes a lot of chemical, so when Barry Pope needed a new sprayer, he turned to the advice from Hustler’s sprayer specialist, Gerald Raikes, to go with GPS Auto Rate and Section control. Barry was also in the market for a new tractor, and having settled on a new Puma 140, he wanted to run with the factory GPS brand, the Trimble FMX750. That presented no problem for Gerald wanting to provide the best solution for Tuatahi’s needs, specifying his sprayer build with the correct wiring harness to plug-n-play with the Trimble GPS.

Tuatahi spec’d their Hustler sprayer up with nearly every option in the book, and went for the FOX 1800 – a 1980 litre capacity linkage mounted sprayer, 14 metre fully hydraulic boom, Chemical mixing and induction hopper, precision dry level gauge, folding access ladder, remote filling port, and more…
