Mako

The Mako 445, 445NT, and 455 sprayers are some of the latest members of the GVM equipment family. The smallest, most compact self-propelled sprayer in the marketplace; the Mako is the perfect machine to get into fields early, when grounds are still wet.

Small, stable, and nimble, the Mako features a 425 gallon polyethylene product tank, multiple boom options, 36 or 46 inches of crop clearance, and a tight turning radius.

Widths for Every Field  

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.
