ALUMINUM SPRAY booms are coming to America. Fast Distributing is bringing this technology to the U.S., using the French-made Pommier aluminum spray boom. Similar booms were featured at the SIMA International Agri-Business Exposition held in Paris in March.

The Pommier booms are constructed of round, aluminum tubes extruded for extra strength and arranged in a three-dimensional trellis structure, making them lightweight and corrosion resistant. An internal rib structure gives the booms rigidity and strength, and all booms fold and unfold hydrostatically.

Five sprayer models with the aluminum booms can be ordered now for next season. The sprayers, with a 1,000-gal. tank, will make either a 60-ft. swath folded or a 120-ft. pass fully extended. The sprayers should retail for about $77,000. Contact Fast Distributing, Dept. FIN, 54859 County Rd. 44, Mountain Lake, MN 56159, 800/772-9279, visit or, or circle 157.
