Grumman Ag Cat
The Grumman G-164C Ag-Cat is a variant of the Grumman G-164 Ag-Cat, a single-engine biplane agricultural aircraft that was developed by Grumman in the 1950s. The Ag-Cat was the first aircraft specifically designed by a major aircraft company for agricultural aviation, and it represented a significant improvement in safety and reliability over converted dusters. The Ag-Cat was initially produced by Schweizer Aircraft under contract from Grumman, and later by other manufacturers. The G-164C model was introduced in 1995 by Ag-Cat Corp., and featured a 750 hp Pratt & Whitney PT6A-34AG turboprop engine, a larger hopper capacity, improved cockpit visibility, and a new tail design. The G-164C Ag-Cat can carry up to 400 gallons of liquid or 3,000 pounds of dry chemicals, and can operate from short and rough fields. The G-164C Ag-Cat is widely used for crop dusting, spraying, seeding, and firefighting operations around the world.
