JUST in time for Christmas, Northern Ireland agricultural machinery manufacturer, SlurryKat, has introduced an all new range of its Premium Plus 'super tankers'.

Based on the original range, the new tankers now come with a host of new features included in the standard specification.

SlurryKat’s new Premium Plus range includes models with capacities right through from 7250 litres (1600 gallons) to 25,000 litres (5500 gallons).

Its CEO, Garth Cairns, explained that the new range of Super Tankers combine all the latest features introduced over the past 12 months together in one go.

He said: “During the past 12 months we have introduced some new novel features on our tankers that we have been slowly introducing since the autumn of 2019. Having been encouraged by the customer response to these new features, we have now unveiled the new range of Premium Plus Super Tankers that incorporate all the new features.

“These have now all been refined to the exact requirements our customers are demanding and we are rolling them out as standard base specification on all SlurryKat Premium Plus Tankers from December 2020,” he said.

In addition to lighter booms, new braking system and new drawbar the new features also include a new pump.

There's a new five-point rear linkage system which means that all dribble bars and trailing shoes can be fitted without any alterations.

Also, they have the latest high-speed vacuum pumps, with a crash protection system and auto vein lubrication.

The tankers sit on 150mm HD square beam axles and have 420 x 180 S cam load-sensing brakes on all models, which have automatic slack adjustment.

The over hedge boom is 46% lighter than previous models and there's a new internal anti-surge smooth ride baffle system, plus a larger over flow valve system for more air flow and faster filling.

The auto fill system has a 10m3 per minute filling speed and the re-designed rear three and four point linkage caters for all types of spreading equipment.
