So this is the trident 5550 from case ih, so we’ve got the trident sort of spray outfit and then you get the dry box and the spray rig with it um. This thing looks really neat in the box, so i’m gon na pop this thing out of the box let’s take a look at it to see what it looks like all right guys. So here it is and i’m sorry to say that the box that that came in did not survive, taking it out, это, not one of those boxes where you can put it back in so the heck with it i’m. Just going to put this on the shelf anyway, possibly even on the display at some point more on that you know down the road, though okay, so let’s take a look here at the dry set up first. Сооо, Конечно, the big thing with these trident sprayers are the duals and they look great they’re nice. Looking dual could use some paint to just sort of get rid of that plastic look, but if you did that, i think that’s a pretty decent looking setup on there, of course ripe for customization course. Но вы знаете,, maybe you can make them steer things like that. Really neat, i thought maybe they’d make this hood open, but no such luck there now the ladder does kind of come up. It does rub pretty hard here, but it does fold up. Там. We’Ve got some flashers which which are kind of chunky.
If we’re honest there, the hood does look good, Хотя, на эту вещь, э-э ., the graphics look great too. This is that uh kind of new tri try, try stripe style, graphic that we’re seeing so that looks pretty good. We do have our gps up here, as well as our flashers and mirrors, and i will say the flash or beacons look good. The mirrors look pretty decent, maybe a little chunky but they’re pretty decent. You get a two part, mirror there oops i’m, sorry and then the handrails are okay, but mine are kind of bent a little bit uh. Now i do understand that they curve here just a bit but they’re, still kind of laid over and bent in so that’s. Maybe uh yeah, but whatever fenders we’ve, seen this kind of style fenders before moving around to the back. These the rear fenders have some flashers on them that look really nice smb decal, as well as some flashers up on the box. Decals on the the spreader box itself, look good. The beaters on the spreader are all cast in so not a ton of detail there, but again ripe for customization. Now to pop this off. We just slide back and pull off. You can kind of see how that fits in there. So it just comes off super easy. Конечно, we’ve got the new leader decal up here, and we’ve got some tubing and things of that nature inside the box, not much detail.
Uh didn’t expect it, Хотя, really so uh. This is just a mirror of that side. For the most part and so here’s what our buggy looks like with out any box on there. I did this, so we can get a look in this the cab here. So the steering wheel is laughably, big it’s, just it just is um and then of course, это. A disc it’s just got some relief casting in there, but it’s not an actual steering wheel, but the console and seat look really nice in there. I think i think they did a really good job on that for the most part, and then you will notice that the um the platform you walk on it does have sort of some indentions and things like that where there would be holes, so i think that’s, Good uh, just a nice touch there we’ve got a little detail here here and here so no complaints there and then i suppose this is a tool box. I imagine i’m just guessing that’s what that is now let’s uh before we get this put on let’s. Just look at the spray rig again, you know nothing huge detail there well that pops off pretty easy, но это, Хорошо. One thing i do like about this, which has been a problem with ertl sprayers, is check this out. These will stay back and i can see there’s some cylinder cast in there, but it doesn’t obviously do any motion and then these okay, so these just these just kind of continue to fold they just sort of do this number let’s.
Я, like i in general, like the look of this boom, Я думаю, что это, Хорошо, i think um, Знаешь, for the price range it’s to be expected. This is a big boom that’s for sure now, let’s just kind of come around, so this will oops. Я. Sorry this will raise and lower. We do have a trident logo here and we’ve got some railing there and then, Конечно, here’s your here’s. Your boom supports for when you are in the folded position, like so i’m, going to go ahead fold. This back like that. Now well slide that on just put it in your holes slide it forward just kind of kind of slides up there almost clicks in place, so there you go now. I will say this i’m going to give herdle some credit here. Uh i’ve got to lower that there we go now we’re sitting in there right, the color of plastic they use here does not look bad. It doesn’t look like the terrible plastic we’ve seen in the past. It actually matches the case. I each read pretty good back here: maybe it doesn’t look as good, but certainly up here on the boom. I think it looks excellent um anyway in general, это, a pretty nice sprayer, really uh sprayer fertilizer combination, so here’s the trident 5550 умм. Я, like it you’re gon na pay 30 Кому 35 bucks for this thing right now.
