The Expandable Spring Shank Direct Injector from Balzer Inc. features low-profile, toggle-trip reset mechanisms so pressure is applied to the toggle, not to the springs. The low profile of the reset springs keeps the swing arm lower to the ground for more stability and durability and less wear on the hose. The box-out design allows for adjustable row spacing and moves the weight closer to the rear of the tractor by narrowing the width. A folding mechanism also is built on each 5- or 7-drop base unit so a wing kit can be added to expand up to 13 drops. Call (800) 795-8551.
