Stinger is showing their new applicator which features many industry first:
  • Both spread and spray ground metered technology (1.5 - 5.5 mph accurate application)
  • All electronic controls: no cables, levers, valves, or dripping diaphragms. One touch operation.
  • Smart calibration - use a container and collect fert or spray. Tell the control how much you collected and it does all the math based on the time it was distributing that product. Doesn't get any easier.
  • All stainless steel NASCAR inspired tube frame making it lighter and stronger.
  • New steering is the tightest and easiest to turn in the industry and it isn't even close.
  • Commercial hydrostatic pump and motor drive system making it 3-5x longer life than competition. We went with the optional cooling fan to which is over kill to extend life even further.
  • 32 gal all liquid unit option: the new 150 lb hopper deign removes in 2 min with 4 bolts and 1 connector to be replaced with a 16 gal spray tank. You can spray from either tank with the touch of a button from the control panel.
  • These are the highlights but there is a lot more that won't fit in a post.
Basic Specs:
  • 360 lbs
  • 150 lb hopper; 16 gal man spray tank w/additional 16 gal option
  • 35" wide, 56" long (yep, its that compact),43" tall
  • 18"drive tires and 13" steering tires
  • All stainless powder coated frame.
  • 6.5 hp commercial Vanguard electric start engine.

Dangit David. I've been asking for a demo last 8 weeks and gave up, have 8 steel greens coming instead.

Why would you paint a stainless frame?

FWIW, Hurricane blowers had their electronics sealed in epoxy...except they weren't.
Flag on the play. How dare you criticize David and his designs.
If it takes 4 weeks to ship slice seeder blades (real story, we're still waiting and you have our money), how long will a fancy computer gizmo takw to ship?
We had the turfware rep over to one of our shops. I encouraged my managers to like it for if no other reason than we could rack it. We still bought the steel greens.

I'm lost when you all say they're too big. We have the 36s. We use them everywhere.
This sounds like a very made control panel. It is good to hear how confident the manufacturer is...stating that absolutely nothing will corrode this part.

Considering the high quality, will the manufacturer have a warranty on the control that reflects that level high of confidence?
There is confidence and then there is salesmanship. Where does that line blur in each situation is for the buyer to determine.
Of all the peeps speaking about employee simplicity, how many techs do you send out each day and on what machines now?
