Ag Shield's Shielded Sprayer Booms: A Necessity for Kansas Sprayer Operators

If you could purchase a sprayer boom that would cover the gamut of assurances for operational efficiency, durability, longevity, value and a positive return on your investment, where might you go to seek such a product?

For at least one sprayer operator, Ag Shield's shielded sprayer boom has satisfied the niche of such requirements.

Meet Larry Molyneux,  a veteran sprayer operator of fifty years. Larry uses a shielded sprayer boom from Ag Shield matched to an Apache high clearance chassis. A few clips of Larry's story can be viewed below.

The interview was done by Arden Koehn from Price Brothers Equipment Company; the Apache high clearance chassis is a product from Simpson Farm Enterprises Inc., both industry partners are from Kansas, USA.

Kansas Farmer "Gets The Job Done" With Ag Shield Sprayer Booms

Call it a perfect match or plainly just creating an opportunity, what ever the case, Ag Shield Manufacturing has enjoyed meeting the needs of customers from far and wide.

Whether its increasing crop and forage yields, pasture and land management or simply matching the right niche product to the appropriate application, Ag Shield innovation has risen to the occasion.

When it comes to an industry leading, patented sprayer boom application system,  Ag Shield has met the needs of many and in more ways than one.

With every product that is delivered there is a need that has been met and a success story to be told.
This story takes us to the "Wheat State" of Kansas, USA.

Eric Jacques has been using  Ag Shield's 100ft shielded sprayer booms with GFS (ground following system) for the past three years. After exposing his first set to over 50,000 acres with out a hitch, he now has matched his second set to a John Deere 4830 high clearance chassis.

Jacques farms  wheat, corn, soybeans and grain sorghum. A diverse operation amongst a landscape that does offer up it's challenges to every day farming operations.

"In Kansas the wind is blowing every day, Ag Shield's shielded booms allow me to adapt to present weather conditions and spray when I need to spray." Jacques said,  "I just can't apply consistently without a covered boom."

Big winds, rough and rolling terrain makes a proven sprayer boom the key to sustained productivity.
Jacques stated, "When spraying glyphosate, I can operate in a twenty to thirty mile per hour winds and cover one in a half times more acres with the shielded boom."

"The in-cab GFS (ground following system) is easy to use, all I have to do is turn the dial. It allows me to keep my booms where I need them to be and my booms will simply last longer." Jacques said.

This relationship, like others are long and broad,  Ag Shield sprayer booms have been teamed with a variety of high clearance products, operators and used for a wide scale of applications.

 Ag Shield's foundation for long-term success in the sprayer boom market has been built in parallel with an innovative and quality product but also strong personal and working relationships.

Industry partners like Prairieland Partners in Hutchison and Price Brothers Equipment Company in Wichita
contribute greatly to making opportunities like these attainable.

  • Premium and hardened finish to steel for paint adhesion
  • Decreased prep time and required labor
  • Increased prep quality and paint ready parts
  • Decreased surface deficiencies
  • Increased quality of finished/painted parts

The HyPerformance HPR130 Plasma Table

Just arriving, this new addition has replaced a previous, older plasma unit and has come with various upgrades;

  • Upgraded operational technology and machine software.
  • Able to cut oxy acetylene and plasma.
  • Ability to cut up to 1 1/2 " thick steel
  • Ability to accurate parts more efficiently
  • Straight air for shielding rather than nitrogen, reducing operational costs
