WWW.POTATOGROWER.COM 23 Concord • (800) 688-3300 • www.concordseeding.com Concord 5250 & 3800 Air Carts The Concord 5250 and 3800 air carts offer fantastic capacity and flexibility. They have three tank compartments with single or dual airstream capabilities to deliver many different product combinations to the drill. They can also be used as tow-behind or tow-between to accommodate individual growers' needs. Case IH • (877) 422-7344 • www.caseih.com Trident 5550 Liquid/Dry Combination Applicator The Trident 5550 is the industry's fastest- converting liquid/dry combination applicator on a high-clearance, row crop chassis that is engineered to be changed across three seasons. Using the Case IH Aerial Lift Device, operators can change from liquid to dry, or vice versa, in as little as 42 minutes. Automatic and in- cab adjustments and precise application technology help protect and spoon-feed crops at the optimal time. While in the field, operators benefit from an exclusive load-compensated suspension package and available factory-integrated dual tires. The Trident 5550 Liquid System offers Case IH's AIM Command FLEX advanced spray technology, delivering: Precise product flow and spray pressure Efficient, effective applications by eliminating over- and under- application Turn compensation for accurate, precise application across the boom, even around corners or on contours The Trident 5550 combination applicator features the optional New Leader NL4500T G4 Edge variable rate dry nutrient applicator and a new level of precision dry-product application. The NL4500T G4 Edge's patented precision spinner technology spreads dry product faster, wider and more consistently. Greentronics Ltd. • (519) 669-4698 • www.greentronics.com info@greentronics.com AutoGlideXR Sprayer Boom Height Controller Greentronics' advanced AutoGlideXR system (also known as RiteHeight) fits a wide range of sprayers and automatically maintains correct boom height over varying soil and crop conditions. The AutoGlideXR keeps sprayer booms automatically at a consistent height, eliminating the need for manual height adjustments in hilly terrain and minimizing the risk of boom contact with the ground. The AutoGlideXR system uses rugged ultrasonic range sensors mounted near the boom tips to continually monitor and maintain the height of the booms above the ground or crop canopy. This means more consistent spray height, better spray coverage, reduced drift, and less stress and fatigue, especially when spraying at dusk or after dark. Because the AutoGlideXR controller uses the sprayer's existing electric-over-hydraulic controls, it can easily be installed on almost any type of sprayer. Connections are made to the solenoid valves that control the boom lift cylinders. Not only is AutoGlideXR extremely versatile, it is also attractively priced and offers great value on sprayers and other applications where sonar sensors can be used to automatically maintain correct height or depth. John Deere • (866) 993-3373 • www.johndeere.com/ag R4044 Sprayer The 1,200-gallon-capacity R4044 sprayer is 9 percent lighter than Deere's R4045 sprayer, with a more balanced power- to-weight ratio, thanks to 325 engine horsepower from a 9.0-liter PowerTech engine. This allows operators to maintain speed under load as terrain changes and results in more accurate applications and greater productivity. This new sprayer also incorporates the latest guidance technologies that improve application accuracy and reduce crop damage and operator fatigue. AutoTrac Vision uses a front-mounted camera to help guide the sprayer wheels down the center of the crop rows early in the season; AutoTrac Row Sense relies on wheel-mounted paddle sensors to help steer the machine down row middles later in the growing season. The R4044 features VF tires for superior traction and reduced soil impact, and steel booms up to 120 feet in width. Customers have the option of carbon fiber booms in 120- and 132-foot widths. A 200-cubic-foot drybox option is also available for dry fertilizer applications. The ExactApply nozzle control system maintains consistent droplet size and pattern through a wide range of speeds, while reducing the potential for overlaps, skips and drift. Another major benefit of ExactApply is that operators have full turn compensation and shut-off functionality at the nozzle.
