The small, lightweight and agile machine features a 140-inch wheelbase and a narrow track width resulting in a compact 4.2-metre turning radius.

"The Mako offers the perfect combination of liquid capacity and machine weight to dramatically reduce soil compaction," Croplands says.

"Due to its lightweight design and equal weight distribution, the Mako performs exceptionally well — even in wet conditions.

"With its rigid, commercial-grade frame and 1500-litre product tank, you’ll never compromise productivity either," the company says, adding that the Mako has the ideal design for tall broadleaf, cotton and row crop applications.

The Mako has a Tier 3 Cummins engine which delivers 130hp @ 2500 rpm via an Allison 2100 RDS, automatic 5-speed transmission and all-mechanical powertrain for quick response, fuel efficiency and high field speeds.

"Air cooled and turbocharged, the engine package is designed to go hard, even under heavy loads and tough applications," Croplands says. "It’s a package that has more torque, more power and a better transient response than your typical 130 horsepower engine."

The machine has 5 forward speeds and a 35km/h transport/road speed.

To top it off, the company says, the Mako’s sprayer-specific cab is simple, spacious, and comfortable.

Features of the cab include: curved glass windshield with all-glass door; air suspension seat; windshield washer; dual-purpose paper/charcoal cab filter; night and general use interior dome lights; tilt and telescoping steering with horn; air conditioning and heating; and an AM/FM radio with CD player, four 50W speakers and USB connectivity.

There’s also a 460 Controller with GPS speed sensor.
