Thinking about replacing your current spray booms, or making the switch from steel to aluminum? Below we've listed the top 6 reasons to make the switch to our revolutionary Millennium aluminum spray boom.
Your time is invaluable and by upgrading to our Millennium booms you can cover up to 33% more ground with each pass, saving you time and money. With new regulations on time of day, speed, and weather conditions shrinking the already narrow window you have to get the job done, our Millennium booms ensure you maximize your impact every second you are in the field.

Aluminum booms are up to 50% lighter than their steel counterparts, typically resulting in a 2,000-3,000 lb overall weight savings. This means less field compaction, less rutting, better weight distribution, and better overall ride quality. It even allows your auto steer to run a little more smoothly.
We put our money where our mouth is when it comes to building the most robust and durable boom on the market. Our Millennium boom was engineered utilizing tools such as Finite Element Analysis to ensure optimally distributed loads and stresses, and field-tested using stress/strain gages and potentiometers for advanced fatigue life testing. The result is a boom design incorporating multiple patents that has virtually eliminated the fatigue life cracking associated with other aluminum boom designs.
We have always taken pride in workmanship, and maintaining a world-class welding operation is critical for our stringent quality guidelines. We work with a renowned instructor and trainer who has literally written the books on aluminum welding and our welders are regularly tested and certified to AWS D1.2 Structural Welding Code standards.
Proudly designed and manufactured in Wautoma, WI using aluminum sourced and extruded right here in the USA.
Ever been in an airplane when it hits an air pocket and drops? Those huge wings flex and then come back to home position. This is because the elasticity modulus of aluminum is 1/3 of that of steel, which gives aluminum structures the ability the bend without breaking. Aluminum is also naturally corrosion resistant because it spontaneously forms a thin but effective oxide layer, unlike steel, which begins corroding once it’s penetrated with corrosive chemicals.
