According to Mark Posey, General Manager of AG Equipment USA in Tennessee, the typical air machine can cost almost twice that of a fully equipment BBI Triad Spreader body. In addition, the maintenance costs are significantly higher on the air spreader. The life span of the Triad is potentially 15-20 years far outlasting the air spreader by 4 to 5 times.
Until now applicators had little options when it came to delivering multiple fertilizers and nutrients unless they wanted to make multiple passes. With the Triad they can accomplish the results of the air spreader by applying up to three granular products at different rates.
The Triad features a three hopper design and which effectively blends and, utilizing the BBI Magna Spread™ Technology, can deliver spread swaths up to 80’ depending on the materials. The Triad™ can also be equipped with the exclusive BBI GR System™ for ultra high conveyor speeds without the burden of elevated oil flows and related temperatures.
The rear hoppers are capable of spreading rates as low as 40 lbs. per acre and as high as 250 lbs. per acre. As a result, micro-nutrients can be applied at the prescribed rate for each material.
Utilizing any variable rate controller, an operator is able to adjust and monitor all aspects of the spreader from the cab. Also, operators can maximize efficiency, record keeping, feedback and quality delivery through GPS Speed and Location and Mapping Technology.
According to Richard Hagler, President of Barron and Brothers International, “our intention was to build a tough, durable and versatile fertilizer delivery system that provides commercial fertilizer applicators and growers a viable, efficient and effective solution to nutrient application processes.”
