Description

Mini GUSS is designed specifically for vineyards and high-density orchards. It is a progressive machine that uses a combination of GPS, LiDAR and the latest technology to autonomously roll down each row spraying with precision and efficiency. A single operator can monitor up to eight mini GUSS machines from a vehicle, office or home while the nurse truck supplies the spray product when mini GUSS signals for a refill. Mini GUSS has a 3.8-liter Cummins diesel engine to tackle the most strenuous terrain. There are two tower options: a vineyard tower for two row applications and an apple tower for high-density trellised orchards.
