Mustang Tool Bar powered with
Exactrix® engine technology.
More Net Income. Considering the
Exactrix® technical advancement of making $60 to $100, additional net
margin with TAPPS.
Low owning costs of about $11 per acre on 3,000 acres per year, when
applying 300 acres per day for 10 days.
Low operating costs of about
$1.50 per acre for the Mustang tool bar, which is 2 to 3 times better than
any other No-till opener banding
at the 6 inch depth.
A good way to improve your
breakeven point and deliver equity to the balance sheet in 2015.
Fertilizer prices are not going down, so get
up on the edge and make NPKS and micros work better on your farm with 1%
Exactrix TAPPS at 6 inch depths. Rotational Band Loading works better with
6 inch banding depth.

If you can not buy it…then you
must build it and Exactrix designs and builds a manganese steel blade to
produce low soil movement and surgical cuts.
The Exactrix Mustang is the
lowest cost way to deep band to a 6 inch depth with no closing wheels
1. No depth wheel is required.
2. No scraper is required.
3. No bearing surfaces or pivots are exposed.
4. No tires need to be replaced.
5. No closing wheels are used on 15 inch band centers.
6. Bands are much deeper and 15 inch x 6 inch zonal dilute and safer for
immediate planting of corn the same day.

Winner of two national awards…in single disc banding and TAPPS
The frame wing up position
allows the machine to transport at 18 feet 10 inch in width. Machine
height varies with lift assist up or down. Maximum height 15 ft.-2 inch.
Lowest height is 13 ft.-10 inch.
Optimum roading speed is based
on conditions and the liquid tank load. Practical speeds can vary based on
the NH3 tank in tow.
The 2KP and 2KR check valve holders allow
dual liquid products to be applied with dual check valves. The check valve
holder is made from ss-304 x 1/8 inch material for long life. The check
valve maintains a trapped flow for a quick start. No dripping in transport
and injection pressures are achievable to 300 psi at the manifold and 150
psi at the stripping TIO. Top notch performance from the Exactrix TAPPS
formulator allowing liquid state NH3 to collide and crystallize in the
9,000 acres at 61.2 ft, the chrome insert was
replaced at 6,000 acres. The carbided injector foot operates
in the shadow of the Mustang blade.
High speed roading is allowed
with stable lift assist wheels. The wheel anti-wobble plate is adjusted by
the spring rate based on machine weight and speed.
The double acting hydraulic
cylinders allow the lift assist wheels to be raised. With double acting
cylinders the lift assist wheels lift off of the ground allowing all
weight to transfer to the tool bar and less tracking in side dressing of
Lift assist cylinders operate on
a separate hydraulic circuit.
Accumulator ride control and
pressure compensation valves can also be installed.
Pressure compensation valves are
installed and used to adjust wing down pressure. Exactrix engines 2KC
Weigh Master and 2KP TAPPS formulator mount to the back of the trailer
frame and are easily accessed with your feet on the ground.
Opener hub bearings are
lubricated or purged one time per year. The special Caterpillar® metal
face seals assure high quality sealing of the pinion type Timken®
bearings. Common double Timken pinion bearings are rated at 3,300 lbs.
A pinion bearing is used since
it can take extreme side loading as well as radial loading. Even though
the opener swivels tremendous side loads can occur at 10 mph. The steel
hubs are double o-ring sealed. The hubs are machined from a solid steel
billet. The P-51 opener bearings are set with a hardened tongue washer and
a threaded compression clamp for maximum side load and correct bearing
The lubrication of the durable
hub allows the lubricant to pass both bearing races on out through a
controlled port. The heavy duty hubs are a proven industrial design which
allows long term use of bearings and seals. The hub pilot and the blade
pilot is precision allowing the blade impact to be taken directly into the
hub center flange and not into the shear plane of the 5/8 bolts that
retain the blade.
The Mustang blade life is
extended with manganese steel. Another Exactrix exclusive is the special
diamond tooled technique that produces double extreme edging for ease of
soil penetration and virtually no soil movement.
The large diameter blades turn absolutely
true with a .003 indicator run-out at the blade edge. As the blade edge
lifts out of the soil the double tapered edge rotates upward and out of
the soil with low soil movement. There are two sizes of manganese steel
blades available. The 3/8" x 24" and the ½" x 25"
extreme service. The Mustang blades are the key design part of the Mustang
opener with zero technical run-out with a disappearing edge allowing the
vacuum injection to form up the TAPPS stratified delivery.
The wing wheels are 9.5L x 15 in
8 ply rating with tubes. The wing wheels are adjustable. The center
section of the tool bar is set with the tractor two point free link
engaged for about 2 inches of movement on either side.
The tool bar design and the
opener allows for openers to be moved inward towards the row for ridge
till. Thus the bands can be set as pairs of 10/20 rather than 15/15. The
Gyro counter weights run to the outside of the row.
Also the openers can be arranged in
specialized row spacing to 12 inch.
The outside four openers swivel
an additional 5 degrees to each side to allow for quick inside turns.
The swivel pivot housing at the
bottom and top are double sealed and allow the internal sealed fiber glide
bearings to carry heavy loads.
The swivel shaft is 2.5 inch
chrome plated allows the fiber glide bearings to perform over a long life
with no lubrication required.
The mounting tool bar clamp is also triple
sealed to keep water and dirt away. The upper tool bar clamp allows the
vertical adjustment to be changed. The orientation of the swivel can also
be changed at the tool bar clamp.

Is 6 inch deep banding of
nutrients better than 3,3/4 inch banding of nutrients?
On the Great Plains…. You
bet it is.
A dry stretch can be 5 to 10
years. A big rain could be 3 to 5 inches and TAPPS and TAPPKTS is
stabilized to take the flood.
Liquid streaming flows makes
TAPPS crop available in consistent soil moisture at depths of six inches.
The highest crop availability of
NPKS and micros known to the soil chemist results from the crystal

technology using pressures to 300 psi with liquids and liquid state NH3
flow in a high temperature reaction.
Applying nutrients at 1% CV
makes nutrients 166% to 200% more crop available in a polymer crystal form
with metals like zinc included.
The long term key is the 6 inch depth and
keeping the soil pH evenly distributed.

This is the very best nutrient
access at deep banding depths of 6 inches. Intense root targeting results
with bands deeper for seminal and secondary root exploration and no
shallow bands that can strand NPKS nutrients.
Nutrients applied at the 6 inch
depth are more geometrically accessible to growing crop roots and tough to
kill weeds seem to never find deep bands. It has long been known that 6
inch deep banding with rotational band loading will produce highest long
term performance of placed P.
P rates can be reduced with long
term Rotational Band Loading and No-tillage at the 6 inch depth. Surface 2
to 4 inch tillage is acceptable with bands at 6 inch depths.
Exactrix TAPPS works every time
1. with low horsepower,
2. low soil disturbance,
3. less disease pressure,
4. better soil pH distribution to improve the soil biological life,
5. 1% CV of application means uniformity over the long pull in producing
better soils and better variable rate technology.
6. Highest quality nutrients at lowest cost….about ½ the cost of other
Will I ever surface apply
fertilizer again? Probably never unless it is a Lime application.
A surgical soil slot cut into
winter wheat allows yields to move up to the highest levels…level 5 is
the result and due to placed P at rooting depth. Side dressing of winter
wheat is a viable option in late fall, during the winter months and well
ahead of the plant absorption needs.
Getting the bands on just ahead
of dormancy break drives efficiency of placed P and allows N to remain
ammonic and stabilized.
Fool the weeds, starve the weeds
and feed the growing crop only. Corn and Milo really perform with banding
just in front of the planter…just as good as side dress in most cases
with Thio-sul® to stabilize the N.
It is good to have a lot more options and lot
more crops to choose from when you are working with the weather.
Making sure each generation has a better chance with better soils and
good economic margins.
