The C Series' FlowLogic recirculation plumbing keeps product moving through the boom, plumbing and filters to reduce chemical buildup and help eliminate plugged spray tips. New ClearFlow recovery, the industry's first full-recovery system, uses air to force product from the booms or reload station back into the tank, leaving less than 2.5 gallons in systems without injection. New self- priming booms help product flow quickly through the entire boom. Other key features of the LiquidLogic system include a "hold at minimum" pressure setting across the boom that helps ensure a consistent spray pattern to keep product on target at low speed and the ability to maintain a +/– 1 psi variation across the boom. Section control for either 35 sections with 10- or 15-inch spacing or 36 sections with 20-inch spacing are standard with the AgControl rate controller. Finally, variable displacement control of the product pump manages and limits speed to 5,000 rpm to help prevent pump failure. Trident 5550 Liquid/Dry Combination Applicator The new Trident 5550 liquid/dry combination applicator provides producers a flexible new solution to protect and feed their crops at the optimal time. Built on a row crop chassis for three seasons of use, the new machine features the optional New Leader NL4500T G4 Edge variable rate dry applicator, allowing producers to apply up to four dry products at once to meet the demands of prescriptive nutrient programs. The NL4500T G4 Edge also delivers patented precision technology to spread product faster, wider—dry fertilizer up to 120 feet and ag lime up to 60 feet—and more consistently, while advanced hydraulics support precise, independent spinner speed and conveyor control. While in the field, producers benefit from an exclusive load-compensated suspension package and available factory-integrated dual tires. Automatic and in-cab adjustments allow operators to fine-tune settings on the go, all on the a single screen with the AFS Pro 700 or Viper 4+ controller. With the Trident 5550 Liquid System, producers can also easily switch the Trident 5550 from liquid to dry, or vice versa, in as few as 42 minutes.
