Blu Jet Liquid Fertilizer Applicator Model?

Jump to solution

I bought a used Blu Jet liquid fertilizer applicator and am trying to find the model number on it.  The seller didn't know.  

 

I'ts pretty old.  It has a round 500 gallon takn - (round like a ball).  It started life as a 8 row but is now a 12 row.

 

It is a forward fold.  I can't find any that are forward fold.

 

Any help appreciated.

It's likely either a JetStream or an SD Caddy. Is it a bar with a fully integrated lest system, or is the bar mounted on a 3-point carrier?

There is an outside chance it's a LandWalker, because these also held 500 gallon ball tanks, but were used more for dual NH3 and liquid application.

I was in touch with Larry Abrahams and sent him some pictures.  He confirmed it is an very early JetStream.  Thanks for the reply.

 

I'm hoping to get it running soon and side dress the corn.  It should work fine for my small farm, though I confess I wish it had a bigger tank but I suppose the gear won't hold the weight.

I built a side dress machine from parts of a old NH3 bar. It has a small tank also. I now use saddle tanks to carry more 28 to the field.

I wonder if one could pull a small tank behind the applicator and plumb it into the applicator tank, or if thatis just too much monkey business?  I can see myself doing a lot of deadheading to get 500 gallons at a time.
