The new Case IH Trident 5550 liquid/dry combination applicator is the industry's fastest converting combination applicator on a row-crop chassis. It¹s 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.
Precise dry applications
"The NL4500T G4 Edge uses patented precision spinner technology," Burns said. "It spreads dry product faster, wider and more consistently." And it does so with outstanding flexibility.
The MultApplier option increases productivity by allowing application of two dry products simultaneously or independently at straight or variable rates in one pass.
"Micronutrients continue to gain popularity," Burns said. "The MultiBin option increases application options to four products in a single pass. That means fewer trips across the field for reduced soil compaction, labor and fuel consumption."
Unique, new technology smooths the ride
The system features a pneumatic cylinder at each suspension joint to help maintain ride quality and load leveling. An engine-powered air compressor supplies the air to cylinder, which automatically adjusts according to operating mode and load weight.
Enhanced applicator features
The Trident 5550 combination applicator is the first applicator featuring factory-available duals in row crop tire sizes. A variety of tire options help support operating over three seasons in a variety of ground conditions, crop types and sprayer or spreader configurations.
