Case IH has launched a new heavy-duty folding anhydrous ammonia applicator with its Nutri-Placer 940, an implement that can put down ammonia in 65-foot widths.
Riding on 14 wheels, the largest model of the Nutri-Placer floats on the field with large flotation tires to maintain proper fertilizer depth and to control compaction. The machine has a Class V Perfect hitch and is designed to be pulled by the largest 4WD, high-horsepower tractors available, and it has a narrow profile in order to permit tight turns for track or wheel tractors. A rear hitch is rated at 25,000 pounds.
The frame on the 940 features a five-section field flex and seven-section design for superior ground contour and easy folding and unfolding. Transport width when folded is just under 19 feet.
The Nutri-Placer's ground engaging design has been shown in research to significantly cut nitrogen losses through evaporation.
