GVM Mako Introduction

Introducing The Newest Menber Of The Family<br /> <br /> Focus on what matters; speed, power, and size.<br /> <br /> Named after one of the most prized, aggressive and intelligent predators, the Mako 400HC will be the first to the fields in the spring. The Mako is the smallest self-propelled sprayer in the marketplace. Small, stable, and nimble, the Mako features a 400 gallon product tank, 46 inches of crop clearance, a light footprint, and a tight turning radius. Powered by a Cummins Tier 3 engine paired with an automatic Allison five speed transmission, the Mako’s robust yet efficient powertrain provides aggressive reliability to keep you in motion all season long.<br /> <br /> GVM INTRODUCES THE MAKO 400HC<br /> <br /> Many of you have been asking, we’ve been listening, and GVM has been designing. We’re proud to announce that there is finally a small, lightweight, mechanical drive self-propelled sprayer on the market again!<br /> <br /> This past February, GVM Inc. introduced the newest member of their equipment family. <br /> <br /> The MAKO 400HC made its debut in Louisville, at the National Farm Machinery Show. The MAKO, named after one of the most prized, aggressive, and intelligent predators, is a long-awaited answer to the hole in the equipment market after the elimination of the SpraCoupe.<br /> <br /> Designed for farmers and applicators with small fields or small jobs, the Mako is the smallest self-propelled sprayer in the marketplace. Small, stable, and nimble, the Mako features a 400 gallon product tank, multiple boom options, 46 inches of crop clearance, a light footprint, and a tight turning radius. Powered by a Cummins Tier 3 engine paired with an automatic Allison five speed transmission, the Mako’s robust powertrain provides aggressive reliability to keep you in motion all season long. It is simple enough for first time applicators, yet smart enough for pros.<br /> <br /> Of course, there were a lot of upset customers after the SpraCoupe was discontinued. GVM President and Owner, Mark Anderson, says, “Our distributors heard about it at every farm show after the initial announcement. People were confused and upset because the Coupe was a great machine. GVM prides itself on being a company that always listens and we expected to hear the initial disappointment. But we kept listening and we kept hearing the same thing. The market wanted a lightweight self-propelled sprayer, something that could work the fields early, with little to no soil compaction. Knowing that we were the only manufacturer that would be capable of releasing a small, Tier 3 sprayer, we decided it was time to go for it. We are absolutely thrilled to be releasing the GVM Mako this winter. The decision to build this machine was a relatively easy one.”<br /> <br /> • Fuel efficient mechanical drivetrain<br /> <br /> • 400 gallon product tank<br /> <br /> • 46 inches of clearance<br /> <br /> • 8-120 inch adjustable width axles<br /> <br /> • Tier 3 Cummins engine, 130 hp<br /> <br /> • Simple design for simple operation<br /> <br /> • 20 mph maximum transport/road speed<br /> <br /> • 13.8 foot turning radius
