As fertilizer prices fluctuate growers take advantage of off-season prices and buy in the summer or fall. Saving on fertilizer is advantageous, but stored fertilizer can clump up over the winter, making it difficult to move through the drill come springtime. Thunderstruck Ag has an implement to beat the clumps and make buying fertilizer off-season worry free.
Jeremy Matuszewski, from Thunderstruck Ag Equipment, tells RealAg’s Atley Hamlin all about the ThunderBuster at Western Canada Crop Production Show 2023 in Saskatoon, Sask., in the video below.
The ThunderBuster was created by a pair of Saskatchewan farmers, and is designed to break fertilizer into pea-sized pieces to be drill-ready.
Powered by a bin sweep or an optional hydraulic motor, ThunderBuster comes in three different models. There are two auger attachment models available in eight-inch or ten-inch sizes, or the option of a conveyer model. Both auger models attach to the hopper and the conveyer model is stand-alone and does not require an attachment.
Matuszewski says the ThunderBuster is one of the hottest products in ThunderStruck’s range this season. Pricing depends on model type and size.
