Setting The Standard for Productivity

The Trident 5550 liquid/dry combination applicator didn’t earn CropLife IRON “Product of the Decade” honors for nothing. With a 42-minute changeover time, this combination applicator redefines what productivity means. Built with industry-leading horsepower in a high-clearance applicator, high-capacity configurations, 40 MPH roading speeds and a system that delivers a throughput of more than 60 gallons per acre, the Trident 5550 is the Combination Applicator that puts the rest to shame.

  • A Quick Change Tool that Works Fast

    A combination applicator that takes hours to switch between liquid and dry isn’t a true combination applicator. The Case IH Aerial Lift Device helps convert from the Trident 5550 Liquid System to the NL4500T G4 Edge or NL5000 G5 variable rate dry nutrient applicator in just 42 minutes.* The fast, easy changeover puts you back in the field sooner, helping you make better use of your fleet.

    *Changeover achieved in 42 minutes by three people using a telehandler and the Case IH Aerial Lift Device outdoors. Changeover times and manpower could be reduced in a controlled environment, using an overhead hoist. 

  • AIM Command Flex™ – Ultimate Sprayer Control

    AIM Command Flex™ option delivers the ultimate in sprayer control for more efficient use of resources with sound product stewardship. How it works:

    • Pulse Width Modulation: Think of it as a way to change nozzles without leaving the cab. Once you select a standard tip, AIM Command FLEX automatically and precisely controls the flow to meet targeted application rates. Working at 10 pulses per second, nozzle valves vary the duty cycle to maintain the correct application rate even as sprayer speed changes.
    • Application Rate: Regardless of speed, ground conditions or field shape, AIM Command FLEX controls product flow and pressure, optimizing application rates and droplet sizes for consistent application.
    • Turn Compensation: Ground speed varies across the boom during turns — causing underapplication on the outside of the boom and overapplication on the inside. AIM Command FLEX eliminates this issue by adjusting flow rates on each individual nozzle across the boom during turns.
    • Direct Injection: (1,400 gallon tank only) allows for selective spraying for exceptional accuracy and easier rinsing.
  • Get More Done with Each Pass

    Meet the demands of complex nutrient programs. The Trident 5550 combination applicator with the optional New Leader® NL4500T G4 Edge or NL5000 G5 variable rate dry nutrient applicator lets you spread product faster, wider and more consistently. Apply up to four products at once with the MultApplier™ option.

    • Precision Technology: ​​Spread dry fertilizer up to 120 feet and ag lime up to 60 feet with consistency.
    • Intuitive Interface: New Leader with ISOBUS electronics seamlessly interface with the AFS Pro 700 or Viper4+ controllers. Advanced hydraulics support precise, independent spinner speed and conveyor control.
    • Apply up to Four Products: The MultApplier™ option increases productivity by applying two products simultaneously or independently. Add micronutrients via the MultiBin™ option and apply up to four products in one pass.
  • Spend Less Time Filling, More Time Spreading

    Whether liquid or dry application, the Trident 5550 liquid tanks with a capacity of up to 1,600 gallons and dry application bins with high capacities and configurations to apply multiple products at once.
  • A Combination Applicator with Row-Crop Design

    The Trident 5550 liquid/dry combination applicator is the industry’s first combination applicator on a row-crop chassis that’s engineered from the ground up to be changed from liquid to dry and back again throughout three seasons of use. 

    • Frame: The backbone, it carries every component of the system under some of the toughest conditions imaginable. Constructed of welded tubular steel with additional plates and gussets at key stress areas.
    • Load-Compensating Suspension: Handles high-capacity loads over a wide range of speeds. The system maintains ride quality and load leveling and adjusts automatically according to operating mode and load weight.
  • The Most Powerful High-Clearance Combination Applicator Available

    At 390 engine horsepower, the Trident 5550 is the most powerful high-clearance liquid/dry combination applicator available. And thanks to Case IH Efficient Power technology, it generates more power with less fuel for a lower operating cost.

    The hydrostatic drive provides infinitely variable speed control. Full-time 4WD provides excellent traction in all types of conditions. Individual wheel traction control senses slip and helps the machine power through those tough spots.
  • A Combination Applicator With Row-crop Flexibility

    The flexibility of the Trident applicator allows you to configure your machine to fit your operation. Featuring easily adjustable axle widths, factory-available dual options in various spacings and high-capacity braking.
