Hydra Spray & Hydra Spread

Hydra Spray/Spread & Video

The GVM Hydra Spray and Hydra Spreads were designed to offer versatility and maneuverability to custom applicators, co-ops and farmers. The Hydra Spray  and Hydra Spreads are offered from the factory on the Ford F-550 chassis. This provides operators a narrow, mechanical drive machine with a tight turning radius and comfortable road travel.

The design of the Hydra Spray and Hydra Spread will help you get into areas larger application equipment cannot navigate into, including pastures, narrow gateways, and small farm roads. It’s tire options allow the Hydra Spray or Hydra Spread to do both pre and post-emergence work for liquid applications.
