510P

510P

Powered by the legendary PT6A-34AG, flat rated to 750 SHP, the Thrush 510P delivers exceptional power for takeoff and climb, carries maximum loads and delivers superior spray patterns.

510G

510G

The GE Aviation H80 engine, takes the 510G to new levels of performance thanks to a power output of 800 SHP above 100º F (better than any engine in its class), a lighter airframe, and low acquisition cost.

550P

550P

The 550P has set the standard in the ag aviation industry for tough dependability, rugged construction, simplified systems and low maintenance for years. It'll fly you well into the 21st century.

710P

710P

This is the world's most powerful ag plane, with one of the best swath and spray patterns available today. And like all Thrush airplanes, it boasts incredibly stable flight characteristics with performance to match.


When it’s time to get to work, nothing gets you working like a Thrush. That’s because every style of aircraft we build boasts a large wing area, low wing loading, and outstanding handling qualities specifically designed to help you get more done, and then bring you home safely. Now throw in our renewed reputation for rugged dependability and it’s clear why there’s simply no better way to start your day than in the cockpit of a Thrush.

Why We’re Better. Period.

You buy an ag airplane to work, and we build ours to make sure they do just that, day in and day out. All of our airframes, engine mounts and landing gear are powder-coated to provide superior protection against moisture and chemicals, and to resist fading, cracking and chipping. We coat every aluminum part we make with an Alodine® chromate conversion layer. We use solid-state generator control that incorporates all control and protective functions and in single compact unit. Our fuselages and cockpits are designed to withstand high G overturn impacts. And we ensure every major system is easily accessible for routine maintenance. Rugged. Dependable. Safe. Nobody does it like Thrush.

Every Thrush is built to offer a great value for your dollar – and to hold its value for resale better than any other ag airplane on the market. When total cost per acre is the metric, there is simply no better aircraft, and it’s what has made us the preferred choice of aerial application operations, both large and small, throughout the world.

Thrush offers a range of aerial application aircraft to fit any size and type of operation. With hopper capacities ranging from 510 to 710 gallons, each of our models provides superb visibility, light control surfaces, unbeatable speed, and maneuverability. We’re known for structural durability and excellent performance under the most extreme conditions and our aircraft are flying today in more than 80 countries. Come take off will us, and you’ll see your business do the same.

During the build process we stress-relieve all high stress steel parts including: engine mounts, wing attach tubes, and landing attach points. This process removes more than 90% of the internal stresses on the airframe and is one of the key reasons why all the steel elements in every Thrush have no life limit.

Thrush aircraft are the only ag aircraft equipped with a wire strike protection system as standard equipment. Every Thrush has wire cutters on the main landing gear, wire cutters/deflectors on the cockpit, and a wire deflector cable from the cockpit to the vertical fin.

Some warranties aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. Not ours. One full year on the airframe from your delivery date. Period. No hassles. No long waits. We stand behind what we sell, and have for more than 40 years.

Thrush 510P models have a wing spar life of 29,000 hours. The 510G’s wing spar life is 60,000 hours. And the 710P has a spar life of 26,000 hours. A lifetime each, by any measure. Even more impressive, there hasn’t been a single FAA Airworthiness Directive issued against the wings or wing spars on a Thrush aircraft built since 2000. That means you can be confident you’ll get more days flying and working out of a Thrush – which, after all, is why you buy an ag airplane in the first place.
