Highway Equipment Company, the manufacturer of New Leader® crop nutrient applicators, encourages growers across the nation to inquire about the TR1000 trailer with dry nutrient applicator at their authorized John Deere CAD/ASD dealerships. The TR1000 trailer, built exclusively for the John Deere 4900 series sprayer chassis, allows individual growers the ability to apply lime and fertilizer as needed, on their own clock. The TR1000 is adaptable to specific crop needs with an adjustable axle, 3 tire size options, and brakes.
The TR1000 trailer and dry nutrient applicator package, is more than a spreader. It’s a machine. New Leader’s patented application technology permits a uniform, consistent application that helps crops achieve their maximum nutrient uptake. Side-by-side comparisons demonstrate that New Leader applicators are capable of spreading 25-50% wider that competing applicators, even in 20 mph wind.
Additional features of the TR1000 include: a heavy-duty category ¾ bull pull hitch which eliminated backlash, an inspection ladder, hose and harness support, 40k-pound rated safety chain and a heavy-duty trailer jack.
