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.
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!

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.
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.
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.
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.
