As a favorite of ag operators for years, the Thrush 510GR has a legendary history of high performance. It’s little wonder since the time-tested Honeywell TPE331 engine gives operators the kind of cost-saving benefits other ag pilots can only imagine. They include fewer costly overhauls, lower maintenance costs and a lower specific fuel consumption, making it one of the most economical airplanes of its kind in the world. Combine that with higher working speeds, a quieter cockpit and 940 horsepower on tap, and it’s easy to see why the 510GR is the obvious choice for nearly any operation.
