Blu-Jet's new side dress liquid applicator

New for 2015 from Blu-Jet is the AT4020 liquid injection side dress applicator to help growers manage their in-season applications. The company debuted the tool for the first time at National Farm Machinery Show in February. The tool features a fully integrated ISOBUS control system that manages folding, depth and rate on the nozzle injection or coulter knife injection row units. And users can operate with their existing OEM display. Blu-Jet says the system is as simple as “plug and apply.”

The tanks come in 1500 or 2000-gallon sizes, and a cone bottom tank with 3-inch bottom fill, along with a standard 9-gallon wash tank toolbox, help to make filling easier and more efficient.

Axles on the AT4020 are adjustable from 120 to 160 inches, and the tool also features a heavy-duty seven section front mount toolbar for strength and flexibility on uneven terrain.

Blu-Jet says the new model has the narrowest transport width and height in the industry, and the tool is backed by their 5-year frame warranty.

Suggested retail price is $98,052 for the following AT4020 configuration: 25R30 with coulter knives; 2,000-gallon tank with tank level digital display; and ISOBUS controlled hydraulic kit.
