Hagie substantially changed the look and features of its self-propelled sprayers with its new STX 10 model, which the company unveiled at the 2010 Farm Progress Show. The most obvious change was in the design that included a composite body covering the sprayer, similar to the body of a combine. The benefit of this change is cleaner air for engine cooling. The sprayer has a stronger boom with a routing channel to hold the fluid and electrical lines. The company upgraded the cab with safety, ergonomics and comfort in mind. The 4-wd, hydrostatic sprayer is equipped with a 1,000-gal. tank and offers 65 in. of ground clearance.

List price for an STX10 with 90-ft. boom is $220,000. For more information, contact Hagie Mfg., Dept. FIN, 721 Central Ave. NE, Clarion, IA 50525, 800/247-4885, or visit www.hagie.com.
