Pre-plant and pre-emerge spraying is a crucial a part of many growers’ packages for efficient weed management.
“Many operations, especially those with higher amounts of acres to cover combine pre-plant nitrogen application with herbicide and often times are looking to spray high gallons per acre” states Cody Fast, President of Fast Ag Options. “The issue that is very apparent when they are looking to apply 30+ gallons per acre is that they are limited on how many acres can be covered between fills with a self-propelled or floater. Spraying high rates also makes it difficult for the tender driver to keep enough gallons to the sprayer since the sprayer tank empties out so quickly. All this added fill time and waiting for the tender driver increases idle hours on equipment wastes limited time that is available to apply.”
Fast’s new 5,000 gallon sprayer is aimed to make a game-changing improve in effectivity for growers and customized applicators spraying excessive charges or in areas with giant fields. This 120’ or 132’ sprayer, named the Massive Acre Collection, is about to maximize flotation and improve the variety of gallons sprayed per day with excessive circulation capability.
The Massive Acre sprayer comes commonplace with 36” extensive CAMSO tracks to maximize flotation. Even with the massive tank, this sprayer solely offers 14 psi of floor stress when totally loaded, which could be very comparable to a floater. The sprayer can be prepared for top circulation capability with two Ace 750 Oasis™ pumps – one for tank agitation and one devoted to maximize circulation being pushed by means of the sprayer increase. With two pumps and environment friendly plumbing, this sprayer is ready to apply 230 gallons per minute which equates to 60 gallons per acre at 15+ mph with a 120’ increase.
The Massive Acre sprayer can be aimed to maximize labor and gear utilization. “We ran the Big Acre sprayer on our farm in southwest MN this Spring” states Cody Fast. “We knew we would be more efficient by filling up less times per day but what became even more evident was how much less time the sprayer and tender spent sitting at the end of the field when spraying high rates. We would empty out the entire 5,000 gallon tanker into the sprayer in one fill, go back to the farm with the tanker to fill up, and since the sprayer was able to cover so many more acres between fills we didn’t have to sit at the end of the field putting idle hours on the tractor waiting for the tanker to get back like we typically do when spraying high rates. After filling the sprayer, the tanker driver didn’t have to sit at the end of the field waiting for the sprayer to get empty; everyone kept moving and it made a huge difference to match up the capacity of the tanker and the sprayer.”
Fast’s aim is to discover methods to improve effectivity for growers and customized applicators to finally enhance their backside line and the Fast crew is happy that this 5,000 gallon sprayer offers a brand new means to obtain this.
Take a detailed take a look at this all new 5000 gallon 120′ or 132′ sprayer from Fast designed to make a recreation altering enhance to effectivity, particularly throughout excessive gallon nitrogen work and in areas with giant fields to cowl. Able to 15+ mph at 60 gallons per acre, it boasts excessive circulation capability coupled with excessive flotation provided by commonplace CAMSO 36″ extensive tracks.
