Liquid to dry, faster

Turning a self-propelled application from liquid to dry is faster with new design from Miller.

Published on: Nov 10, 2013

Expanding your fertilizer options for both fall and spring applications may involve changing forms - from liquid to dry - but making the switch from a liquid tank to a dry box on a self-propelled machine can be time-consuming, especially if you make the switch a few times a year. Miller introduced its solution with the Condor GC75, which allows use of both a spray tank or dry box. Mounted on the rear, just six bolts hold the liquid tank or dry box attachment in place. Company representatives say it takes less than one hour to switch attachments, but they recommend a crane for lifting. Miller sells the GC75 as either a sprayer or dry box applicator. Then customers have the option to purchase the other attachment. Miller is based in St. Nazianz, Wisc., and can be reached at (800) 247-5557 or visiting www.millerstn.com.
