Hagie Mfg. introduced the 2016 DTS10. Designed as the next generation of applicators, this lightweight, yet rugged self-propelled sprayer delivers to the market a state-of-the-art machine designed with the capability to widen the application window and maximize productivity.

The smallest applicator within the family-owned manufacturer’s product lineup, the new 2016 DTS10 packages a high-clearance frame and 1,000-gallon solution capacity within one of the industry’s lightest weight and most well-balanced machine designs.

In recent years, Hagie Mfg. deliberated on the creation of an ultimate sprayer for the evolving industry needs of the next decade. The company noted that a machine design would definitively be encompassing of key industry drivers including weight, balance, capacity, application speed, boom width, grade ability, maneuverability, precision compatibility, safety, price and comfort.

“When evaluating the mid-sized self-propelled sprayer market, customers made clear the desire for a low weight, balanced machine that is compact and maneuverable, all while staying highly productive and lower cost than larger commercial sprayers,” said Newt Lingenfelter, senior product manager. “The 2016 DTS10 by design has a perfectly balanced, lightweight frame that carries a low center of mass, thus making it compact and easy to maneuver in tight areas. It also features many of the high-end options that in the past were only available on the larger units, such as all-wheel steer, auto fold, a premium cab, and all precision capabilities.”
