Case IH Nutri-Placer 920 Latest Addition to Fertilizer Applicator Lineup
28 Aug 2012
RACINE, Wis. — The latest addition to the Case IH Nutri-Placer line,
the Nutri-Placer 920, is designed for productivity and up-time while placing
nutrients in the root zone to maximize return on investment.
“We are excited to offer this commercial-quality applicator for producers who
want increased productivity and a value-added fertilizer application,” says Dave
Long, Case IH Marketing and Sales Manager for pull-type fertilizer
All-New Frame Design and Strength
The Nutri Placer 920 is all new from front to back. It features a front
mounted coulter bar with five section flex and active hydraulic down pressure to
maintain uniform depth and accurate fertilizer placement over a wide range of
field conditions. Utilizing double tubes with fore and aft bracing provides the
frame strength that allows for longer implement life and greater stress relief.
The heavy-duty, welded-frame design delivers large-acre productivity, even in
the toughest field conditions.
Larger than previous models, the Nutri-Placer 920 offers a choice of either a
1,650-gallon or 2,050-gallon tank, so producers can work longer before filling
up. The all-new tank chassis centers the tank over the axle for consistent
positive tongue weight whether the tank is loaded or empty. Additionally, a low
center of gravity is created, offering more stability as producers go over bumps
and hills in the field.
The Nutri-Placer 920 also offers overall improved transportability with
an innovative X-Wing frame design that folds for narrow transportation width and
low transportation height, so it can be easily transported when the closest
field is a few miles away.
Unmatched Agronomic Features
Equipped with spring-loaded, 20-inch coulters, the Nutri-Placer 920 delivers
fertilizer into the root zone with your choice of a straight-stream injector or
a liquid knife. This provides increased nutrient availability and minimizes
residue and soil disturbance. Additional benefits include reduced horsepower
requirements, a wider operating window and faster operating speeds.
As the largest liquid fertilizer applicator in the lineup, with up to 25
coulters in a 60-foot frame size, the Nutri-Placer 920 matches a 24-row
planter. The outer wings can also be folded for conversion to a 17 coulter
applicator to match a 16-row planter.
The Nutri Placer 920 utilizes a hydraulic driven centrifugal pump, providing
a wide range of rate control and capacity.
“The Nutri-Placer 920 is designed for the demands of large-acre productivity
and has features that accurately place nutrients in the root zone to maximize
return on investment” says Long. The Case IH Nutri-Placer 920 will be sold
through trained and certified application equipment distributors and dealers.
