Case IN Agriculture, Racine, Wis., USA

The Case IH NUTRI-PLACER 920 is an advanced pull-type liquid-fertilizer applicator with the smallest transport envelope in its class, reduced maintenance requirements, and operational speeds up to 13.7 kph (8.5 mph) for maximum efficiency in-season. The 18 m (60 ft) working-width applicator is offered with either 23- or 25-row side-dress coulter units to match 24-row planters. The outer wings can be folded over to run 17 coulter units to match I 6-row planters. The hydraulic wing frame X-fold design allows for narrower transport width and a transport height of only 4 m (13.3 ft). The five-section flex applicator toolbar frame, mounted to parallel arms for level lifting and lowering, is controlled with active hydraulic down pressure, ensuring consistent fertilizer placement across the width of the machine. All wing hinges and linkage pivot joints have self-lubricating composite bearings to eliminate the need for daily grease maintenance.
