Nozzle System

The Combo-Rate nozzle body system and Combo-Jet DR nozzle from Wilger, Benson, MN, are offered by Case IH application equipment distributors.

The Combo-Rate system equips the sprayer with up to three nozzles at each boom location, allowing for greater flow and up to seven application rates at once.

The Combo-Jet DR nozzle improves management of spray drift, reduces tip plugging and offers the largest range of flow rates in the industry.

Midsize Bin A midsize bin from MFS/York/Stormer, Grand Island, NE, adds extra capacity where ground space is limited.

The bin is 78' in diameter, 110' high and has a storage capacity of up to 370,000 bu. It comes with either inside or outside stiffeners and optional side discharge.

One-Pass Tillage Orthmann Manufacturing, Lexington, NE, introduces the One Tripper one-pass seedbed preparation system. Whether tillage begins in wheat stubble, cornstalks or a cover crop, the machine provides a clean, level seedbed.

The One Tripper can be utilized as a stand-alone implement or attached directly in front of the planter or row units, permitting multiple operations in one pass.

Utility Tractors Two utility tractors from Massey Ferguson offer high-performance features to handle primary tillage on small farms, and light tillage, hauling and other hard-usage chores on larger farms.

The 2WD MF 271X and 2WD and 4WD MF 281X are powered by Perkins diesel engines and have manual transmissions with a wide range of working speeds. The tractors also offer advanced hydraulics, front-axle engagement of 4WD without clutching, and dual-stage live pto.

Marking Foams Two new marking foams have been formulated by Precision Laboratories, Northbrook, IL.

Enduron PSI allows applicators to drop more foam at higher operating pressures and application speeds in pressurized systems. Enduron XC optimizes foam production at lower operating pressures.

Side-Mount Tanks Wylie Manufacturing, Petersburg, TX, offers a line of side-mount tanks for New Holland 8000 Series tractors.

The tank assemblies are available in 400-, 500- or 600- gallon sizes. The "wedge" style tank mounts to 6" tubes, while the "slimline" style mounts on 7" tubes and features 52" of ground clearance between tractor and tank.
