Hagie STS12 Sprayer Toy Model

Description
This 1/64 scale die cast model replica of the Hagie STS212 Sprayer was manufactured by ERTL in 2013. The use of high ground clearance sprayers and herbicide resistant plants allowed farmers to kill weeds and bugs even after the crop is significantly grown. The integration of GPS guidance and electronically controlled sprayer nozzle shutoffs reduces the amount of over-application of pesticides, weed killers, and fertilizer. With spray arms that fold up for street travel and fold out to 90 feet in length these self-propelled sprayers covered a lot of ground quickly.
