Premier T-Tank Sprayers

The Premier line of Top Air T-Tank field sprayers are equipped with more standard features than any other pull-type sprayer on the market.  The custom molded, T-shaped tank is available in 2400, 1600 and 1200 gallon capacities and features a containment sump for holding the last 30 – 50 gallons of liquid on side-hills and inclines.  Boom widths are available from 80’ up to 132’ for covering maximum acres in minimal time and feature shock absorbers and hydraulic cushioning for smooth, level performance.  FLO-BAK® ball valves automatically return any remaining liquid in the plumbing at the time of shutoff back to the tank rather than wasting it out of the boom, saving chemical and money.  Other standard features, such as the independent rubber-cushioned axle suspension (optional on 1200), stainless steel boom plumbing and hardware, electric tank agitation, outer wing spring-loaded breakaway, and ISO rate control are just a few of the details that put the Premier sprayer ahead of the pack.  Choose from single wheels and tires, dual wheels and tires or the industry-leading Equalizer track depending on model, to meet individual preferences.  Combine these features with longlasting quality and you’ll see why the Top Air lineup of Premier T-Tank pull-type field sprayers truly are beyond comparison.
