To help operators achieve high-efficiency application in challenging conditions, Case IH is launching the FA 1030 air boom applicator. Initially available for the Titan 4540 floater, this rugged applicator is built to carry more product, enhance productivity and deliver accurate application across changing terrain. The FA 1030 will be available for the Titan 3540 in July 2021.
With a rear-mounted 72-foot stainless steel boom and 350 cubic feet of struck capacity, the FA 1030 air boom applicator helps cover more ground. The ability to configure the FA 1030 to spread up to three products and up to 1,200 pounds per acre of total product at 10 mph further ensures maximized field efficiency. The FA 1030 also offers variable rate product application and left/right boom section control, giving operators the ability to optimize their product delivery.
“Not only do today’s operators demand application equipment that will help them cover more ground in less time, but they also need the flexibility and configurations to tailor their equipment, matching their customers’ needs and fields,” said Mark Burns, Case IH application equipment marketing manager. “This rugged applicator is built to carry more product and make the most of in-field time.”
More Options & Configurations
Operators can select from a range of bin options, including single-, double- and triple-bin configurations. An optional micro bin is also available for applications of granular fertilizer, granular chemicals or even cover crop planting with variable rate capabilities. On multiproduct hoppers, operators can use an adjustable divider to easily change from a 50/50 to a 60/40 split, with no tools required. If the micro bin is used for a third product, a 50/37/13 or 60/27/13 split can be selected for ultimate flexibility.
The FA 1030 factory-fit design for the Titan 4540 floater is made possible by the partnership between Case IH and Salford Group Inc., an application equipment manufacturer headquartered in Ontario, Canada.
“We’re pleased to team up with Salford Group to offer this new air boom applicator on the Case IH Titan 4540 floater,” Burns said. “Salford Group is known for developing durable, reliable equipment, and our shared dedication to innovating and helping operators be more productive makes us a great match.”
