Compact, Simple, and Efficient. 

Compact, Simple, and Efficient. The All-NEW Applic8r Front Tank Range

Compliment a rear-mounted three-point linkage Hustler’s Applic8r sprayer by increasing your capacity with the fitment of an 890L or a 1150L front mount spray module. 

The short length of an Applic8r front tank gives them game-changing maneuverability compared to other front tank designs especially important in tight gateways, they look great and it reduces the load on the front axle of the tractor

The kit comes complete with 8 metres of hose, ball value, and coupling to connect to the rear tank. When ordered with an Applic8r Spray unit, front tank valving is factory fitted to sprayer.

Features

Ultra-Low Tank Profile

We understood the dangers of climbing onto sprayers with chemicals or to see inside the tank. So with careful tank/chassis integration, we’ve kept it compact and ultra-low to ensure great visibility and with a small overhang makes for great maneuverability 

CoupleUp™ filling system

Filling’s a snap, fill as you normally would through the lid or with our unique CoupleUp™ 2” tank filling system, if you have a mixing station or trash pump you can fill directly using that pump, or you can also utilise the Applic8r’s own pump to fill out of a trough or stream with an optional 5 or 10 metre filling hose.

ViziGauge™

Our unique ViziGauge is visible from 120 degrees, so you can easily see your tank level from the tractor seat and the ground how much fluid you have left. A floating ball tube gauge makes it easy to read the calibrated ViziGauge™ which now features both Gallons and Litres and provides more tank filling accuracy with our unique mould-in permanent graphics  

Unique Chassis Design

Compact and built to last, it has the biggest section in its class! The unique straight-through chassis design and careful attention chassis/tank/pump integration has allowed Hustler to produce the toughest and most compact sprayer available today. The Applic8r’s chassis has been CAD tested for stress and real-life tested for fatigue on our destroyer. It lasted in excess of 4 times the required benchmark.

ISO Linkage plates

The Applic8r’s 3 point mounts are built to ISO standard unlike most other sprayers. This means you no longer need to park your sprayer on a stack of pallets so the 3 point linkage can reach it and it fits both fixed and floating 3 point linkage arms making it quicker and safer to hook up.

Built-in SkidPlate™

A tough built-in SkidPlate™ protects the vital parts including the pump, tank, filters, drain, from damage should you misjudge a hump or hollow.

Quick Tank Drain

A high flow tank dump operated from the top of the tank saves you from climbing underneath to empty the tank and reduces clean up time and saves the operator from getting covered in chemical during clean up.

Deep sump

A generous sump size is all part of the design so that you can spray on steep terrain without sucking air and leaving missed patches and empty’s the entire tank even when operating on the steepest of terrain

Handwash Tank

Built-in 18-litre tank for clean water so that you can wash your hands once finished filling makes sprayer with an Applic8r enjoyable.

Largest opening with Spill Catcher

The largest 455 mm lid to the tank with larger sieve, has a built-in hinge so that you can’t lose the lid during transport and filling. We’ve also added a spill ring around the lid to catch any accidental spillages to save them getting on the operator.

Mould-In Nozzle Chart

Now showing L/Ha and G/Ac our unique nozzle chart is permanently moulded into the polymer of the tank, so you’ll never need to go searching for a nozzle chart again and helps the operator get set up and spraying quicker every time. 

Integrated Toolbox

Integrated into the design is a handy toolbox that is quick and easy to open and has plenty of space for spare nozzles, filters and is also handy for storing controllers when the sprayer is not in use. 

Large storage box

The optional StorageBox is big enough to take chemicals, filling hos and measuring jugs with you on the job to save you having to carry them in the cab. Not available with the optional ErgoMax™ induction hopper or the foam marker.
