Equipment Forum: Orthman introduces dry fertilizer cart

Orthman Manufacturing recently introduced the all new Orthman Atlas Dry Fertilizer Lifting Cart. This product integration provides new and existing Orthman 1-tRIPr Strip-Till customers an opportunity to increase fertilizer carrying capacity, further enhancing field productivity.

In addition to the Dry Fertilizer Cart, there will also be a Liquid Fertilizer Tank option as well. This option enables producers to quickly convert the system from dry to a liquid fertilizer configuration.

To produce the Atlas Dry Fertilizer Cart, Orthman has teamed with strategic partner Valmar Manufacturing to bring the market the best in durability and nutrient placement accuracy.

The Valmar six (6) ton capacity hopper in conjunction with the industry leading fertilizer metering system puts Orthman’s Precision Tillage Management Systems on the leading edge of strip-till technology.

“Our customer’s have asked for a versatile product like the Atlas Dry Fertilizer Cart, and Orthman has responded” states Justin Troudt, vice-president of sales and marketing. “The Dry Fertilizer Cart is an important component in our industry leading line-up of precision-tillage equipment.”

Feel free to contact your Orthman representative or dealer to discuss the newest addition to the Orthman Precision Tillage Management System. The entire unit will be on display and ready to take orders at the 54th Annual Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Ill., (Aug. 28-30th, 2007).

The liquid fertilizer option will be shown at Husker Harvest Days 2007. Or, you can see the new system at the Orthman Research Farm — Annual Field Day on Sept. 14, 2007.
