Re-designed for the North American market, Equipment Technologies’ series of hydrostatic sprayers offers operators strength, stability, and performance.
“We launched the line for sale about two years ago in North America,” says Matthew Hays, CEO, Equipment Technologies. “We’re in the process of setting up dealers. We’ve sold probably 30 units so far.”
The Bruin HS1100 sprayer compliments Apache sprayers, says Hays, which are mechanically driven.
“Most of the sprayer market in North America uses hydrostatics to drive the sprayer. That’s probably the more conventional way to do it, people are more comfortable with it. So this sprayer’s hydrostatically driven — it gives us an offering in that segment of the market.”

The sprayer has a 120-foot boom width, 1,100 gallon tank, and a 275 horsepower Cummins engine. Its clearance automatically adjusts from 60 to 70 inches. Active pneumatic suspension, hydraulic shocks, and oscillating rear axle keep the system stable and flexible.
Its wireless joystick technology allows operators to walk out of the cab with control, making boom adjustments and nozzle checks a one-person job.
HS 1100 sprayers offer different power control options, four wheel steer, slope compensation, and crab steer mode.
