Unverferth Mfg. Co. Inc. announced its entry into the liquid fertilizer placement market with its new NutriMax liquid fertilizer applicator. The applicator helps crop performance through the precise placement of nutrients during periods of high growth.

The NutriMax applicator also features a rugged design for high-speed operation and a 36-inch toolbar crop clearance for a longer application window. The side-folding toolbar provides a narrow transport width of 14 feet, 9 inches.

The toolbar is available in sizes of 60, 66, 88 and 90 feet. The 60-foot model folds to 40 feet for dual-width application. The center frame section is constructed of dual, 5 x 7 inch tubes and single 6 x 6 inch tube on the outer wings for enhanced durability.

The side-folding toolbar design raises the coulters on the mid-section to achieve the narrow transport width and the hydraulic wing-tilt feature automatically raises the boom to 15 degrees above parallel for minimizing crop damage while turning. The center section of the boom features 18 inches of clearance when raised and frame clearance of 26 inches.

Undercarriage choices include an adjustable axle from 88-140 inches to accommodate a variety of single and/or dual wheel sizes and row-crop spacing. The NutriMax applicator is also available with 14-inch-wide Equalizer tracks featuring cambering from front-to-rear and side-to-side with an adjustable tread width from 88-144 inches.

The applicator has heavy-duty, six-bolt coulters mounted with cast iron clamps and the user’s choice of straight or wavy coulters and injection nozzles or knife injectors to meet specific needs. Row spacings of 20, 22 and 30 inches are available. 

Models are available in capacities of 2,600 or 1,800 gallons with a specially designed triple sump for complete clean out and optimum material flow. Undercarriage and wings feature a durable powder-coat finish of red or green along with a gray tank. 

Options include an inductor system for easily adding micronutrients from ground level and a steerable-hitch system for added steering control on end rows to minimize crop damage during turns.
