Live and Silent Auctions

NAAA Ag Aviation Expo
December 3–6, 2018 ♦ Reno, NV

The Live Auction at the NAAA Ag Aviation Expo continues to be one of the most popular and successful fundraisers for the Association. When it comes to high-stakes entertainment, the intrigue, drama and excitement of NAAA’s Live Auction is hard to beat, which is why it has become one of the signature events at each convention. The Live Auction on “Convention Tuesday” is very important to NAAA from a fundraising standpoint, so enjoy the reception food and beverages and bring your checkbooks. NAAA also holds a Silent Auction each year. Bidding opens on Tuesday and closes on Wednesday afternoon.
The Live Auction continues to be one of the most popular and financially successful fundraisers for the Association. But NAAA could not accomplish this without the support of our many friends and allies. We are grateful to our Allied Industry, State Associations and aerial applicator supporters. All auction donations, big or small, are greatly appreciated, and NAAA recognizes all donations in Association publications and on the NAAA website. The earlier you come forward, the more exposure you'll get. Thank you to Syngenta for sponsoring the Live Auction reception.

  • Handler IV: Part number 85-H43P65V. 
    The Handler IV is the king of batch induction systems with its larger liquid volume and incredible agitation capability. The H43P65V comes complete with a
    total drainage tank, Banjo 3” pump, a dual port venturi for bulk chemical induction, twin agitation lines, two 16” hinged lids (one with the Handler knife and one
    without), container and tank rinsing nozzles, a 4-way forkliftable steel frame, and a pump containment tray. Using closed loop recirculation through the
    exclusive dual port venturi, this model is able to induct bulk chemical into the Handler tank without your sprayer needing to be there! Whether it is high
    volumes of liquid pesticides or large amounts of dry flowables needing to be agitated, a HandlerIV can do it all before your sprayer is back to be filled.
    Dry AMS (ammonium sulfate) users may be interested in even more agitation. The similar model H43P65 replaces the venturi with a second 2” full port
    agitation line and provides agitation strong enough to dissolve even AMS that is not spray-grade. Features include twin agitation lines, patented Handler knife,
    closed loop recirculation and agitation, full 10L/20L container emptying and rinsing capabilities, and dual port venturi for driving bulk chemical into the Handler
    or direct to sprayer fill line.
