It’s fast and it’s efficient. That’s what growers need to know about the new Nutri-Placer 940 fertilizer applicator.
Case IH says its latest fertilizer applicator featuring its high speed low disturbance (HSLD) row unit is capable of speeds up to 11 mph, allowing operators to cover over 900 acres in a 12-hour day.
Case IH unveiled its expanded Nutri-Placer line-up at the recent National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky. “The size of the Nutri-Placer 940 combined with the efficiency of the HSLD row unit option means operators can be more productive than ever, lowering tractor hours and reducing fuel consumption,” says Chris Lursen, Case IH tillage and pull-type fertilizer applicators marketing manager.
First launched in 2017, the Nutri-Placer 930 features a 47.5-foot width. The Nutri-Placer 940, with the added high-speed row unit, is available in 50- to 65-foot widths. Both models feature cast iron components and reduced maintenance to keep operators in the field during fall, pre-plant and side-dress applications. They also feature the new 22.6-inch single-coulter-blade design that effectively cuts through residue with minimal disturbance.
In this video, Lursen takes a closer look at the row unit and discusses new features including: five-section flex for ground contouring; 30-inch row spacing to meet a variety of row crop needs; easy leveling turnbuckles for wing wheel adjustments; and larger standard radial tires for main transport and wing wheels.
