Mountain Lake, MN, 10/15/2013 -- Fast Manufacturing is pleased to announce that they will be constructing a 72,000 square foot addition to the building on their site within the North Windom Industrial Park, located just off U.S. Highway 71 in Windom, MN.
This building, known as Phase Two, will be located on the north side of the Phase One 72,000 square foot building which is currently being constructed. Fast plans to use the Phase Two building for fabrication, welding, and shipping/receiving which will allow Fast to move the majority of its manufacturing process over to Windom, MN in the summer of 2014. This building will be connected to the Phase One building which will be used primarily for the automated powder coat painting and assembly process.
Fast Mfg., a designer and manufacturer of high-quality sprayer and liquid fertilizer equipment, was founded in 1990 by Verlyn and Nancy Fast, and has been based at what was originally their family farm in Mountain Lake, MN. The Fasts are also still actively involved in farming.
“This will be another major step for us,” remarked Verlyn Fast. “This new facility in Windom will allow us to gain efficiencies in our manufacturing process by having it all in one location and under one roof. Our employees have been a huge strength for us as a company and this will allow us to keep our existing employees in addition to adding more jobs in the area.”
Fast plans to break ground on Phase Two in late fall 2013 which will allow the building to be completed in the summer of 2014, which is when Fast will plan to move its manufacturing operations to Windom.
“We are very excited to make this move and have the ability to increase our capacity and continue to manufacture high-quality equipment for years to come which is driven by the quality of workmanship and pride that our employees put into our products,” stated Fast.

Fast Manufacturing Introduces the 9600N: A Short-Coupled Trailer with Great Spraying Flexibility
Mt. Lake, MN, April 5, 2011: With Fast Manufacturing’s new model 9600N sprayer, it’s almost like getting two sprayers for the price of one. The new “N” series is available in 60’, 80’ and 90’ models, and provides the ability to spray at 60’/80’ and 60’/90’, allowing flexibility for a variety of field sizes and configurations.
The 9600N model maintains the short-coupled advantage Fast customers already appreciate for producing less crop damage and adds several new features. The center section has been redesigned, allowing for a narrower transport width—great for narrow roads and field approaches. In addition, the boom-fold configuration takes less storage space, which means it will take up less storage space in the shed. The 9600N is available with high capacity 1,050 and 1,350 gallon, low-profile tanks. The new design maintains the same center-pivot center section customers have come to trust.
“We removed the extendable hitch on this model, which reduces weight and helps keep manufacturing cost down,” remarks Verlyn Fast, owner of Fast Manufacturing, “And we’re passing that cost savings on to our customers. We are always looking for ways to bring value to customers, and this new sprayer stands to be a prime product in our lineup.”
The new 9600N booms join Fast’s full line of pull-type, 3-point mounted, and front-mounted suspended- boom sprayers, as well as liquid fertilizer application equipment. To see the new 9600N booms, or any of the Fast equipment, visit their website at www.fastsprayers.com.

Fast Sprayers' New 120' and 132' Truss Booms Promise Increased Productivity
Mt. Lake, MN, July 23, 2010: Fast Sprayers recently added 120’ and 132’ truss booms to their already robust line of equipment. The increased size allows growers even greater productivity, due to the capacity to spray additional acres each day.
These booms also feature a new design which allows for the shortest-coupled sprayer of their size on the market today. “Keeping the trailer as short as possible improves tracking and reduces crop damage,” remarks Verlyn Fast, owner of the growing manufacturer. “It is our goal to produce the most productive sprayers on the market, and we think this new boom design does just that.”
Available with high capacity 1,800 or 2,400 gallon, low profile tanks, the new design maintains the same center pivot, center-section growers have become accustomed to, which allows for a smooth boom ride and improved tip-to-target spray pattern. A stainless steel wet-boom and the simplest plumbing on the market make for an easy-to-use unit.
The new truss booms join Fast’s full line of pull-type, 3-point mounted, and front-mounted suspended- boom sprayers, as well as liquid fertilizer application equipment. To see the new 120’ and 132’ booms, or any of the Fast equipment, visit their website at www.fastsprayers.com.
