FAST Ag Solutions, based in Windom, MN and Gilman, IL, is pleased to announce the release of a new line of 60’ and 66’ liquid fertilizer applicators featuring an industry leading transport width of 11’10”, which is 3’ narrower than any other 60’+ applicator design on the market. This ground-breaking design was primarily driven by FAST’s focus on increasing safety, easing operator stress, and helping decrease operator liability while on the road.
The innovative new tank design featured with the A-Series offers both 1800 and 2600 gallon capacities with a larger sump, enhanced weight distribution on the trailer, and a lower/narrower profile to significantly increase operator visibility from the cab. The A-Series will also be able to accommodate any row/coulter spacing from 10” to 40” which makes this applicator an excellent fit in both row crop and small grains.
The A-Series Applicators also utilize many previous FAST toolbar design concepts which have been proven to exceed the demands that growers have on their operations, such as FAST’s Flex-Hinge™ design, Wide-Stance Cast Parallel Links, Hydraulic Wing Kick™, and Active Hydraulic Downforce.
“Increasing safety and reducing operator liability is an important factor in any new design that we look at” said Clay Roll, Director, FAST AG Solutions. “It was a huge priority to reduce the transport width of our previous 60’ applicator design, and our A-Series applicator has definitely achieved that. It was great for FAST to get under the 12’ wide mark.”
The A-Series also aligns with the primary focus of all FAST applicators to offer industry-leading durability and toolbar flex to follow ground contours to ensure the coulters place nitrogen at a consistent depth in the soil. All FAST Applicators allows growers to split apply and side-dress nitrogen while also securing their nitrogen investment by applying in the ground where there is minimal risk of nitrogen loss.
The A-Series Applicator compliments FAST’s full line of pull-type and 3-point liquid fertilizer applicators ranging from 30’ to 120’ wide and tank sizes from 1050 to 2600 gallons.
