The Deep Banding High Speed Nutrient Applicator by CrustBuster provides minimum soil disturbance while applying fertilizer in either no-till or conventional fields. This applicator has the capability to deep band NH3, liquid fertilizer and dry nutrients all in one pass at speeds around 10 mph.

The width options available range from 40, 45, 50 or 60 feet on CrustBuster’s proven heavy-duty frames, making it possible to cover large acreages in less time. The units are equipped with DMR Technologies’ Penetrator fertilizer coulter openers. One unit replaces two typical coulter openers and can run over 40,000 acres with minimum maintenance.

Individual units are hydraulically raised and lowered and can apply active down pressure up to 1,000 pounds. Minimal soil movement is achieved by the 24 inch diameter coulter blade, offering 20 inch vertical travel with a 3-degree angle cut that opens the soil to a narrow 0.75 inch width and 5.5 inch deep banding depth.

Heavy-duty ductile cast iron precision machined construction provides 550 pounds per unit weight for excellent soil penetration and retention even in hard, dry soil conditions. Closer wheel options include spiked, rubber or a 20-point Crumbler, all with adjustable angles.
