FAST includes standard on the 973PT series a hydraulic yaw cushioning system that is controlled through and ISO compatible display (2630/Pro 700,ect.). This system has a sensor that is mounted to the center section and senses at all times what the position of the wing is. If the wing starts moving forward and backward due to a sudden start, stop, turn, ect. the sensor will pick that up and apply hydraulic cushioning through the hydraulic fold cylinder to bring the boom to a controlled/cushioned stop and also to bring the boom back to its "home" position. This system helps significantly when there is sudden tractor movements caused by auto-steer or sudden stops, when turning on ends, and also help prevent any "boom walk" that may be experienced with other booms. This is unique system that is offered on FAST booms. (Please see the video above explaining how this system works)
We know that killing weeds is a top priority, so we incorporate a center-pivot boom into all of our sprayers. Because the boom is de-coupled from the tractor, it stays level with the ground, providing a superior boom ride. This means an unbeatable tip-to-target spray pattern, and ultimately, superior weed kill. This also allows the operator to spray at higher speeds, so they are able to cover more acres per hour. Due to the center section being isolated from the tractor this allows for a wide arrange of spray heights. So spraying late in the season will not be a problem due to the adjustable range of the 973PT center section.
All of Fast's 3 point mounted sprayers use the same parallel link system as our trailer sprayers. This gives the operator maximum boom height adjustability for all stages of crop growth.
When you make an investment in equipment, you want it to last, which is why Fast's equipment is all finished with baked-on powder coat paint. Powder coat paint gives equipment great resistance to harsh chemicals, which leads to a longer life and better resale value for you.
The Ace 205-304F hydraulic pump is the standard pump on all 973PT sprayers. This pump is field proven, durable and sure to have a long lasting life. Standard on all 973PT models is the pump hydraulic flow limiter that provides over-speed protection designed to give the pumps a longer lasting life.

So spraying late in the season will not be a problem due to the adjustable range of the 973P center section.
We realize every farmer is different and runs a different operation so that is why with the 973PT series we give the operator the ability to choose between two different boom sizes of 120' and 132'.
All Fast Sprayers are equipped with stainless steel wet boom plumbing. This allows for excellent chemical residue cleanout which results in less chance of chemical carryover. This will allow the operator to spray at higher flow rates.
We know mistakes can and will happen in the field, which is why the 973PT is equipped with a breakaway that has the capability of fore and aft movement. We have designed our break-away so it is light weight yet extremely durable so it will be able to stand up to being bumped into fence posts or trees.
All 973PT sprayers come standard with Tee-Jet ball valves. Standard on the 973PT 120' and 132' sprayers is the 6 section ball valves. Get excellent weed kill with the standard Greenleaf Turbodrop spray tips. These are air induction tips with drift control so ensuring chemical contact in windier conditions will not be a problem.
At Fast we try our best to equip all our products with as much versatility as possible which is why we have designed all our 973PT sprayers with the ability to spray at 60' with the same 120' boom, and the 132' boom is able to spray at 66' as well.
Raven AutoBoom Height Control Systems
FAST and Raven have worked extensively to tailor the Raven UltraGlide and PowerGlide systems with FAST booms. The Raven UltraGlide system uses ultrasonic sensors to detect distance from the ground and make live hydraulic adjusts to the boom while going through the field. The PowerGlide system uses a cushion wheel to detect the distance from the ground. Both systems can be run either through your ISO display or a separate CANbus display.
ISO Ready Connection
Ensure that your Fast sprayer is fully integrated with your in-cab ISO display (such as a John Deere 2630 or CNH AFS Pro 700). This enables operators to have the ability to control application rate, section and swath control, mapping, monitor the amount of product left in your tank, ect. all through one display screen and also helps reduce in-cab clutter.
Electric Fenceline Nozzles
Turn your fenceline nozzles on/off from your cab to increase chemical coverage on field borders
The FAST 3-point booms give you the ability to increase the productivity and profitability of your operation. These booms excel when spraying field borders and maneuvering in tighter fields to provide decreased crop damage. Pair these booms with FAST's Track Tanks to achieve up to 1000 gallons of capacity and get much better flotation as well as a sprayer at a fraction of the cost of any self-propelled option to help reduce your costs per acre and keep more revenue in your pocket.
