    Mako Cab

GVM’s recently introduced Mako 400HC is small yet powerful and aggressive. Mirroring the characteristics of its namesake, the fierce Mako shark, the Mako will float on top of the ground, due to its light footprint and mechanical drivetrain, beating all other sprayers to the field this spring. Made to increase your profits, this quick and nimble sprayer is simple to operate, easy to maintain, and durable for years of reliable spraying.

The Mako 400HC was designed with farmers and applicators in mind and was made for fields of all sizes. This voracious piece of farming equipment is the most compact sprayer on the market.


  • Fuel efficient, mechanical drivetrain
  • 400 gallon product tank
  • 46 inches of clearance
  • Tier 3 Cummins engine, 130 hp
  • Allison 2100 RDS automatic 5-speed transmission
  • Simple design for simple operation
  • 23 mph maximum transport/road speed
  • 13.8 ft turning radius

With its unbeatable powertrain, the Mako provides reliability unlike any other machine to keep you going all season long. This swift machine is powered by a Cummins Tier 3 engine paired with an Allison automatic five-speed transmission.

The Cummins QSB4.5 engine comes backed by a Cummins warranty and the largest service network in the industry.

The turbocharged and charge air cooled Cummins engine combines proven, full-authority electronic controls with impressive reliability, durability, and reduced maintenance intervals.

A torque converter lock up and automatic shifting are brought to you by the Allison 2100 series transmission. Fluid, full-power shifts rapidly puts horsepower to the ground with vigor and brawn, providing unmatched acceleration and road speeds.  

The Mako’s sprayer specific cab offers hours of comfort and user friendly technology for simple operation. Air assisted height adjustment, lumbar adjustment, a reclining seat and a seat cushion tilt all add to the luxury of the air suspension seat. Sound dampening decreases the already quiet engine and a charcoal cab filter cleans the cabs air for a healthy operating environment. To top it all off, the hefty, high-flow A/C system keeps you cool and comfortable even on the hottest days.

With almost 70 cubic feet of space, the cab is spacious enough for even the tallest of applicators. The Mako’s curved front windshield adds to the feeling of spaciousness, however, all of the controls are only an arms’ length away. The user friendly and clearly organized dash and right hand control panel make the Mako easy to learn and even easier to use.

Visibility is just as important as comfort. With almost 30 square feet of glass, including the entrance door that is made completely of glass, operators have a view of nearly 360°, giving visibility to the front tires and spraying system without having to leave the comfort of their seat.
