A Combination Applicator by Design, not by Adaptation
Cover More Acres
We engineered the Trident 5550 from the ground up to help you maximize returns on every acre and from every dollar you invest in application equipment. A single chassis that’s rugged — yet nimble enough — to handle liquid and dry applications lets you get across more acres at the right time.
Liquid & Dry Application
The Trident 5550 gives you the flexibility in a single piece of equipment to meet the demands of timely fertilizer applications and on-demand treatments for all types of pests. The latest precision application technology helps you get the job done quickly and efficiently across three seasons of use.
How valuable is a combination applicator that takes the better part of the day to convert? With the Trident 5550, you can spend your morning spreading a highly customized nutrient package, and then over the course of not much more than an extended coffee break, be ready to put down a preplant herbicide in the afternoon.
Three Seasons of Use
Welcome to High-efficiency Crop Production
The Trident 5550 liquid/dry combination applicator embodies High-Efficiency Farming: efficient use of time, resources and inputs. And today, maximizing yield potential requires a more specialized approach to feeding and protecting. The Trident 5550 meets those demands across three seasons of use — preplant, postemerge, postharvest.
- Outfitted with the New Leader NL4500T G4 Edge variable rate dry nutrient applicator, wrap up dry fertilizer applications remaining from the previous fall, and then quickly switch to the liquid system.
- Make in-crop pesticide applications; apply nitrogen later in the season to boost protein levels.
- Preplant, preemerge or postemerge, protect valuable crops from all types of pests — weeds, insects and fungi. Switch back to the dry applicator, if desired, for topdress fertilizer applications.
- Make postharvest burndown applications before planting double-crop soybeans. Convert to the NL4500T G4 Edge variable rate dry nutrient applicator and apply dry fertilizer postharvest; switch back to the liquid system.
- Follow the combines with postharvest fertilizer applications.
- Preserve valuable soil moisture with chem-fallow burndown applications ahead of winter wheat seeding or to maintain clean stubble until winter, setting the field up for spring planting and seeding.
