Why You Should Attend: The premier outdoor show dedicated to the Illinois farming community, MAGIE is an annual event sponsored by the Illinois Fertilizer & Chemical Association. MAGIE brings together thousands of farmers from Illinois and surrounding states to meet with exhibitors from every corner of agricultural equipment, electronics, services, and more. Making its MAGIE debut is the latest hybrid machine from Salford R+D, the 9600. The 9600 is a continuous-duty hydraulics-powered MagnaSpread Ultra outfitted with huge pneumatic booms typically found on the high capacity Valmar 8600 series. The engineering and design team lovingly dubbed it “the UltraBoom.” You’ll have to see it to believe it!
