Salford intros the Valmar 9620, high capacity addition to the Air Boom line

Salford’s Valmar 9620 was on display at Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois last month.

The newest addition to Salford’s Valmar Air Boom line features a 660 cubic foot hopper, and 70 foot hydraulic booms, allowing it to cover at least 110 acres per hour, with less time needed to re-fill. In addition, the machine is ISOBUS compatible, allowing operators to follow prescription maps with sectional control.

“Salford’s Valmar Air Boom line has earned a reputation for being accurate, reliable and technologically sound,” says Jason Janzen, customer service manager with the company. “By adding precision technology and targeted application to this existing technology, we’ve created a product which allows producers to see a direct return on investment.”

The model is available with optional secondary metering for an addition micro hopper (with 60 cubic foot capacity), allowing operators to apply custom two-product blends.

“The reduced waste and time saved through the use of precision technology and targeted application puts money directly in the pockets of producers,” says Salford product manager, Brad Baker, who describes the 9620 in the video above. “For those who prefer to use their tractor combined with pull-type applicators, as opposed to purchasing a floater, there’s an opportunity to save a significant amount of money. When you factor those savings, the 9620 quickly pays for itself.”
