Model 8100 - 60 - Vertical Fold Liquid Fertilizer Applicator
The wide-stance parallel linkage on all of our applicators creates three distinct advantages. It enables the toolbar to apply fertilizer without the bar 'walking' when higher ground speeds are reached, it allows the bar to be raised and lowered evenly and the wide stance parallel link reduces stress on the center section. These features add up to better placement for your fertilizer investment
Every time you pull a piece of equipment through your field you risk crop damage, so Fast applicators are specifically designed to reduce crop damage with high-crop clearance of 21 1/2' and a wingkick feature that lifts the toolbar when turning on end rows
Center-pull hitches are another way Fast applicators are specifically designed to reduce crop damage, over wider double tube designs.
Short-coupled trailers are another way Fast applicators are designed to reduce crop damage. Just as with our sprayers, the short-coupled trailer follows your tractor better than other designs, which results in less crop damage and greater yields.
When you make an investment in equipment, you want it to last, which is why Fast's equipment is all finished with baked-on powder coat paint. Powder coat paint gives equipment great resistance to harsh chemicals, which leads to a longer life and better resale value for you.
'Stealth' Tank Design
Fast designed their patented tanks (patent # 7,585,000) to include a large troughed sloped sump with an additional drop down for maximum cleanout of product so you can be sure there is no product left in the tank for an extended amount of time. The low center of gravity on Fast's patented 'Stealth' tank design allows for incredible axle adjustability. This leads to less soil compaction and greater yields. The tanks low profile design also allows for better rear vision than traditional tank styles. The 8118 series offers a tank size of 1800 gallons.
Single Reach Tongue
The single reach tongue on all Fast applicators is specifically designed to reduce crop damage so the operator is able to have a sharper turning radius.
The 8118 is dual wheel capable with one option of 62'-120'. The standard tires with the 8118 series are 380/90R46.
The Hypro 9306C-HMI is the standard pump on all 8118's. All pumps that are used on Fast equipment are field proven, durable and sure to have a long lasting life. Standard on all 8118 models is the pump hydraulic flow limiter that provides over-speed protection designed to give the pumps a longer lasting life.
Heavy Duty Jack
At Fast we understand the importance of a heavy duty jack
that can be used with ease. That is why all Fast fertilizer
applicators come standard with a 2 speed heavy duty jack
stand with safe and easy hooking and unhooking to get you where you're supposed to be, in the field.
The 8118 series is equipped with a 6'x4' double tube toolbar that is available in 60'. At Fast we try our best to equip all our products with as much versatility as possible which is why we have designed our 60' 8118 model to have an external hydraulic fold cylinder so the operator is able to fold the outer wing and have the ability to use the bar at 40' as well. The 8118 model is designed to have a trademarked wing kick feature, so when turning the wing will kick up so this will result in less crop damage. This along with our minimum 21.5' crop clearance helps prevent crop damage when turning on the ends.
Hydraulic Down Pressure on Wings
One of the most important features on an applicator is the ability to keep all coulters in the ground consistently with constant down force. This will allow for a much more consistent application, which will result in higher yields and a higher return on investment that will be evident in the fall. All Fast applicators are designed to have hydraulic down pressure on the wings which will give the coulters better ground penetration and much more consistent application.
Toolbar Flex/Gauge Wheels
All Fast applicators are designed to have flex throughout the entire toolbar. The 8118 is unique because the bar is designed to have three sections allowing for flex throughout the entire toolbar. This flex will allow for much better ground penetration and even depth control and fertilizer placement in uneven terrain The 8118 model comes standard with four gauge wheels that help with a more consistent application throughout the entire toolbar
Standard on all Fast fertilizer applicators is the heavy duty Clymer coulters. Clymer coulters are field proven, durable and sure to have a long lasting life, which is why Fast equips all their fertilizer applicators with the reliable Clymer coulter. Coulters can be installed at any spacing the operator prefers and can choose between an injector style or the coulter mounted knife.
