    Flexibility Matters

Over the years, the Prowler has earned its reputation as a rugged workhorse, for its solid powertrain, its dependability, and its efficiency in running all year long.

The E-Series Prowlers are the toughest, most durable self-propelled machines built by GVM. The Prowler offers four-season functionality and a mechanical, full-time, all-wheel drive powertrain with unmatched road speeds.

Designed to be flexible and versatile, the Prowler provides its owners with the largest possible return-on-investment, and the ability to quickly react to changes in weather and crop conditions by switching between liquid and dry applications in less than an hour.

Maximize your Return On Investment

Larger capacities, combo capabilities, and high road speeds make the Prowler your best investment yet. The E-Series Prowlers boast our highest capacities; 1800 gallons and 11 tons, and feature GVM standards including road speeds up to 41 miles per hour, an easy-off, easy-on change-over package, and a full-time, all-wheel drive powertrain.

Only the Prowler allows you to utilize ONE piece of equipment all year long for increased profits. Additionally, the Prowler’s heavy-duty, yet lightweight design minimizes soil compaction and rutting, allowing you to get into the fields earlier, despite wet conditions.

  • Immediate Savings: One machine provides four-season versatility.
    In addition to only one machine purchase, the Prowler allows you to avoid paying maintenance and depreciation costs on multiple machines, immediately lowering your cost of ownership.
  • Time Savings: Higher road speeds allow you to cover more acres in a day.
  • Fuel Savings: The fuel efficient mechanical drive train reduces operating costs.

The Prowler offers multiple savings that add to your bottom line and increase your Return on Investment.

Superior Visibility & Comfort All Day

GVM’s E-Series Prowler features a spacious, pressurized, application cab, paired with a sloping hood for maximum visibility. The combination of the Prowler's air suspension cab, air ride seat, and variable coil spring suspension reduces field shock and noise inside the cab, increasing operator comfort, providing a full day of smooth and stress-free application. Cab noise is further reduced by the silencer design of the unattached muffler.

  • Variable Coil Spring Suspension evenly distributes heavy loads and absorbs each bump in the field to provide a smooth ride
  • Cab flexes separately from frame to further enhance the ride
  • Air suspension Crenlo cab
  • Suede, heated & air conditioned operators seat NEW
  • Front entry design
  • Six tier halogen lights with rear floodlights
  • Heated electronic mirrors, optional
  • Power ports for charging mobile accessories
  • Floor to ceiling glass provides almost 360° visibility and view of the front tires
  • Under cab curtains NEW

Comfort matters, that’s why we’ve redesigned the heating and cooling system added a suede heated and air conditioned seat, and offer tinted glass on the sides and back of the Prowler cab. Window tinting rejects 99% of UV light, provides a 57% reduction in glare, and a 26% reduction in solar heat.

The Prowler features an adjustable floating control console, a bright seven-inch touch screen with push button display, carbon filter, and GPS speed sensor. Cab controls are all easily located within the operators reach on a console that floats with the air suspension seat.

Work smarter with GVM’s electronic chassis monitoring system. Machine diagnostics and gauges including engine, transmission, hydraulic, and electrical data including all CAN messages and fuses are all easily viewed on screen. With technical diagnostic data at your fingertips, service becomes quick and efficient.

Built to Fit Your Operation

The E-Series Prowler offers a machine to conquer any field, offering an all-wheel drive, mechanical powertrain, plenty of power and torque, and virtually no loss in efficiencies to tackle rough and hilly terrain with more brawn than any hydrostatic machine.

Each E-Series model features a Tier 3 Cummins engine with proven performance, dependability, and durability. Mated to a Funk DF250 electronic 4x4 powershift transmission, the Prowler has an infinite amount of gears in the field. A torque converter drive and lock-up with no inching pedal makes operation easy, handling like an automatic, without losing the ability to shift manually when needed.

Backed by one of the best warranties in the business, the Prowler offers a 5 year/6,000 hour engine warranty, 5 year/5,000 hour transmission warranty and an optional 5 year/5,000 hour axle warranty.

One Chassis, Four Season Versatility

Switch it up. As a combo unit, the Prowler will produce more income than any other applicator on the market today. The E-Series’ unique system offers a new electrical and hydraulic quick connect to allow for an even faster change-over from liquid to dry application. To change from liquid to dry application requires releasing only one electric/hydraulic connection, and removing four bolts. The process can easily be completed in less than one hour.

Pre-emergence or post emergence, spraying or spreading the Prowler does it all.

Spend More Time Spraying & Less Time Filling

When it comes to spraying, one size doesn’t fit all fields. The Prowler provides a solution for every job with multiple sizes, tank, and boom options to choose from. Our high capacity spray tanks allow you to work longer before filling up, requiring fewer stops, and maximizing your profitability. Offering the largest capacity sprayers in the industry, GVM maximizes your uptime and ultimately adds to your bottom line. 

GVM’s spray systems are rugged, built for durability and our heavy-duty booms are designed with more structural gussets and supports than any other system.

Direct Injection with Up to 4 Products

Up to four SS chemical injection or water pods are available on 1800 gallon tanks, and up to three chemical injection or water pods are available on 1400 gallon tanks. The direct injection option allows operators to easily switch between fields and applications, eliminating the need for pre-mixing and the chance of cross contamination. It also allows the operator to adjust chemical concentrations on the fly, providing flexibility, without the need to adjust spray rates.

Low Volume, High Volume and Dual Boom Lines

In addition to the standard GVM boom, with 1 inch stainless steel lines and output ranging from 2-180 gpm, GVM also offers a high volume system designed for suspension fertilizers with 2 inch stainless steel lines, and an output up to 300 gpm. Conveniently, you no longer have to choose between high and low volume application, with GVM’s dual boom lines, operators receive the best of both worlds, and gain the ability to quickly switch between applications and fields.

Center Line Booms

Standard on all Narrow Track Prowlers, GVM’s Center Line booms, feature fully protected nozzle bodies. The Center Line boom system is ideal for operators who have to enter tight spaces, battling narrow openings, or overhanging tree limbs. The structure of the boom protects the nozzle and minimizes the chance of breaking nozzles, minimizing the costs and need for replacement nozzles. The new boom design is constructed of heavy duty tubular steel for lasting durability.

Corrosion Resistant Fittings and Hardware

Hydraulic fittings and hardware take lots of abuse during and after application. To increase the working life of hydraulic fittings and hardware, GVM has extensively tested a new corrosion resistant coating that will greatly reduce the corrosion rate of metal exposed to chemicals and fertilizer. The addition of corrosion resistant hydraulic fittings and hardware on all chassis and spray systems will improve product quality, overall equipment reliability, and will reduce replacement costs.

Only GVM's Double Duty spreader provides a repeatable, predictable, and consistent pattern, every time.

The Double Duty spreads a guaranteed flat, 90-105 foot pattern without time-consuming spinner, funnel, or chute adjustments between materials or rates. With pinpoint control, the funnel consistently forces material to the same location on the spinner disc. The Double Duty's pinpoint precision, wide belt, and patented, reverse rotating spinner design combine to produce the industry's widest, most accurate spread pattern.

The Double Duty allows you to cover more acres annually, with fewer trips through the field, increasing your productivity, while minimizing soil compaction, and fuel consumption.

  • 90-105 ft  guaranteed flat pattern with granular fertilizer
