RACINE, Wis. — The new Case IH Trident 5550 liquid/dry combination applicator is the industry’s fastest converting combination applicator on a row-crop chassis. It’s engineered from the ground up to be changed from liquid to dry and back again throughout three seasons of use.
“Efficient use of capital and resources is a priority for everyone in agriculture these days,” said Mark Burns, Case IH Application Equipment Marketing Manager. “So is timely application and nutrient delivery. The Trident 5550 combination applicator delivers on both fronts.”
No. 1 on the priority list for Case IH, Burns said, was to design a true combination applicator from the ground up.
“Other so-called combination applicators simply are adaptations of an existing spray rig or other application equipment,” Burns explained. “The Trident 5550 is an all-new, single-chassis applicator that quickly converts from liquid to dry and back to liquid, making it a valuable piece of equipment across three seasons of use.”
The Trident 5550 combination applicator gives producers and commercial applicators the flexibility in a single piece of equipment to meet the demands of fertilizer and crop protection applications.
