Hagie Manufacturing LLC’s largest full season applicator is now available with enhancements for the 2017 model year. Hagie is officially taking orders for a limited production build of the STS16 for the 2017 calendar year.
Application equipment users can achieve the highest productivity with updates made to the Hagie STS16 Self Propelled Sprayers. New for 2017, the 1600 gallon self-propelled sprayer features a 9.0 liter John Deere PowerTech PSS engine rated at 375 horsepower, with a 413 horsepower bulge. The newest Final Tier 4 compliant sprayer model is now avaliable through the John Deere Dealer Channel.
Featuring enhanced fuel capacities, the 150 gallon fuel tank and conveniently located fuel ladder, allows ground access to quickly fuel the machine and boost uptime.
The largest applicator in the STS product portfolio is equipped with new wheel hubs, generating a 15% increase in torque to the ground for peak machine performance in even the most adverse field conditions.
Additionally, the repositioned rear engine hood creates additional clearance for the cooling package for unsurpassed engine performance, while improved styling concepts add storage for enhanced operator convenience.
The 2017 STS16 couples new enhancements with the prevalent core design of the Hagie STS product portfolio. The 1600 gallon solution capacity sprayer features 76 inches of under-frame clearance in a lightweight and balanced design, widening the application window to perform timely and precise full-season applications. Application equipment users maximize efficiencies with front mounted boom visibility from the spacious application-specific cab, designed specifically with operator safety and ergonomics in mind. Experience minimal crop damage with the narrow leg design and crop package, while enhanced capability for various tire options and attachment capability makes the STS a one machine solution for every application need.
