Fortifier

When Montag decided to enter the Cover Crop market we knew we had the core product to meet growers’ needs. With thousands of acres behind the Generation 2 delivery system we had just the platform to build off of and with a partnership with Hagie Manufacturing we started from the ground up and designed a machine to fit the STS10 and STS12 platform. We started with a new 12 row base and twin bin design, industry leading capacity, 120’ Hybrid boom and 90’ boom, integrated scales, ISOBUS rate control, and row to row accuracy unmatched in the industry.
