Strength in Lightweight Spraying

When it’s time to spray, you don’t have time to waste. Packed with reliable power, the quick and light Mako will be the first to the fields, no matter the conditions. Carrying a small, 400-gallon poly tank, there’s no need to worry about rutting or yield-robbing compaction, and there’s no need to wait until the ground dries out. 

GVM’s spray system is designed for durability, even in the harshest conditions. Standard with steel booms, the design is light, yet features extra support to withstand the tough demands of the industry. Aluminum boom options let you spray further while reducing your weight and adding strength.

Ready to Go, Wherever You Go

Built on a solid foundation, the Mako will provide years of dependable use through a wide variety of crops, growth stages, and field conditions. Its box-style frame is reinforced with plates and gussets, eliminating the need for heavy cross members and reducing overall machine weight. Built-in rear axle tubes add strength and rigidity to the frame. Additionally, the Mako offers users a balanced center of gravity, placing the engine, transmission, and differential between the frame rails to increase the machine's stability.

Tackle any field and every crop with the Mako’s multiple track width adjustments. Prepare to switch between fields using the manual front and hydraulic rear track adjustments, for over 30 inches of adjustability.

The optional extended width kit takes the standard track width from 80-108 inches to 92-120 inches.

The Mako features an independent integral strut and spring front suspension with an oscillating front axle and an independent knee action suspension with coil springs and hydraulic shocks to provide a comfortable, stable ride over any field condition.
