Katipo 680

The popular 680 is ideal for smaller farms wanting to complete their own pasture spraying or liquid fertilizer applications and is capable of
almost any spraying task. It features the 6 metre DuraBoom, New Zealand’s toughest manual folding boom and enough capacity
to cover up to 4.5 hectares per tank load.

What others are saying

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!

"Everyone said to us, buy good gear when you start so you don't have many running costs.  So we went out hunting, I've used Hustler balefeeders before, and I was quite keen to carry on with the Hustler balefeeder."

- Nick Bertram, Manawatu - SL-350 & Katipo Sprayer

6 Key Benefits


Compact and built to last – Careful attention to detail, smart chassis/tank/pump integration has allowed Hustler to produce the toughest and most compact sprayer available today that no longer needs to be parked on a pallet. And has a built-in SkidPlateTM protecting the vital parts from common obstacles faced when spraying.


Easy To Use – No need to be a monkey! Katipo utilises space wisely with an Ultra-low profile design. Filling from on the ground is quick, safe and easy and with the spill catcher, no longer do you have chemicals down your front. A unique CoupleUpTM system makes connecting to filling stations or filling out of a creek with the Katipo pump a snap. And everything you need is handy at the left hand side.


Ultimate Agitation – Utilising the latest computer generated flow simulation 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. 


Functional – Katipo is loaded with practical features that help you get the job done quicker such as quicker tank emptying, a deep sump that lets you spray on steep terrain, a ViziGaugeTM that is visible from the tractor seat and the ground, optional QuickFlushTM kit that lets you clean the sprayer in less than a minute, a toolbox that is quickly accessible with plenty of room for spare nozzles, filters and the controller when you park it in the shed.


Modular Design Katipo is modular and can have optional time savers fitted as and when you like or your budget fits. The SlickFitTM spray valving system, lets you choose how you’d prefer to control your new Katipo. 


Boom! – When it comes to booms, you’re spoiled for choice! Three radical new booms, along with New Zealand’s toughest, the DuraBoomTM giving you the Hustler edge.


Ultra low profile

We understood the dangers of climbing onto sprayers with chemical, or to see inside the tank. So with careful tank/chassis integration we’ve kept it compact and ultra low so that you can easily operate the sprayer from on the ground.

CoupleUp filling system

Filling’s a snap, fill as you normally would through the lid or with our unique CoupleUpTM 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 Katipo’s own pump to fill out of a trough or stream with an optional 10m filling hose.

Agitation flow

To save you stripey paddocks, Hustler used the latest CAD flow simulation technology to create the perfect mix of fluid throughout the tank without dead spots

6 Metre DuraBoom

New Zealand’s toughest manual folding boom. The 6 metre DuraBoom with fully shielded AirMix nozzles, TaperLock pivots, Stainless tubes, quick fit anti-drip nozzles. Also available in 8 metres

Adjustable valve mount

The adjustable valve mount means when the sprayer is parked in the shed the valve can be adjusted out of harms way, then when you’re using the Katipo it can be adjusted forward so that it is easier to reach from the tractor.


A floating ball tube gauge makes it easy to read the calibrated ViziGauge that is visible from 120 degrees, so you can easily see from the tractor and the ground how much fluid you have left

Unique chassis design

Compact and built to last, it has the biggest section in its class! Careful attention to detail and unique chassis/tank/pump integration has allowed Hustler to produce the most compact sprayer available today. The Katipo’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.

Linkage plates

ISO standard double clevis CAT 1 and CAT 2 linkage mounts are quicker to hook up and it doesn’t need to be parked on a pile of pallets


A built in SkidPlate protects the vital parts from damage should you misjudge a hump or hollow

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.

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

Toolbox and wash up

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. It has a built in 18 litre tank for clean water so that you can wash your hands once finished filling.

3 Section controls

3 section controls are standard with a pressure lock function which eliminates any accidental rate change and with our unique SlickFit system you can upgrade, or swap controls in a flash, as and when you like. The valves are protected and tidy behind the control mount.

Comet pump

New model 110l/min flow Comet pump. Any fluid is only in contact with either plastic or stainless steel parts which eliminates any chance of corrosion.

Large opening with spill catcher

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