Economical spraying

The model 570 high-clearance trailer sprayer from Redball is the first of several sprayers that will be part of the company's new Value Line. The 570 will be available in a standard configuration that includes a 1,200-gal. tank, 60- to 90-ft. booms and 80- to 120-in., adjustable 10-bolt axles. Nozzles are on 20-in. spacings, except on the 88-ft. boom, which has 22-in. spacings.

The grower price for the sprayer is estimated to be $20,000 to $22,000. Contact Redball LLC, Dept. FIN, Box 159, Benson, MN 56215, 877/332-2551, visit www.redballproducts.com or www.freeproductinfo.net/fin.

Updated yield monitor

The new Fieldstar yield monitoring system yield sensor from Global Technology by AGCO is unaffected by temperature changes and can move from one crop to another with a single calibration per crop.

Price of a system that includes WAAS DGPS is $4,500 to $5,000. Without DGPS and terminal, both of which can be transferred from other Fieldstar operations, the system is $2,000 to $2,700. Contact AGCO Corp., Dept. FIN, 4205 River Green Pkwy., Duluth, GA 30096, 770/813- 9200, visit www.fieldstar.com or www.freeproductinfo.net/fin.
