The Condor G-Series sprayer from Miller-St. Nazianz was named the 2009 CropLife IRON Product of the Year by readers of CropLife IRON magazine. In all, the Condor garnered more than 200 of the 500 votes cast.
“I’m honored that our Condor is so appreciated by users in the field,” said Todd Frish, territory manager for Miller-St. Nazianz, in accepting the award at the Illinois Fertilizer & Chemical Association meeting in Peoria, IL. “On behalf of Miller, I would like to thank CropLife IRON for this special trophy. It really means a lot to us.”
Condor G-Series sprayers are built with product tanks capable of holding 1,000 or 1,200 gallons of product. Units are also equipped with Cummins QSB 6.7-liter engines and Allison transmissions. Select models can be fitted with the Spray-Air system, helping operators to penetrate dense canopies, and SmartDrive front-wheel assist. The active suspension features air bags on both front and rear axles, along with trailing arms and anti-sway bars for increased stability, says the company.
Established in 2007, the CropLife IRON Product of the Year Award honors the top product in the world of ag retail equipment. Each year, five finalists compete against one another, with the magazine readers casting deciding votes during a one-month timeframe the fall.
