Imported and distributed by Giltrap Agrizone in Cambridge, Hi-Spec slurry tankers and manure spreaders are offered in several ranges to suit farmers and contractors.
Said to reduce scuffing during tight turns and increase both contact area in the paddock and driver comfort, the Quadshift axle was first tested by the manufacturer as far back as 2004.
The layout sees four wheels spaced across a rigid axle, helping to spread weight over a larger footprint, while also incorporating a hydraulic lateral adjustment function for the outer wheels, allowing them to be “pushed” out by up to 65cm on each side. This helps prevent the tanker wheels running in the tracks of the towing tractor, reducing soil damage, particularly in the spring Large tyre equipment (620-80R42) helps create the larger footprint, while an independent suspension system ensures the pressure beneath each tyre remains constant.
Fitted to the company’s 15,850 litre capacity machine, the unit is available with a rotary lobe or vacuum pump layout, a choice of self-filling arms on the tanker’s right hand side, ISOBUS controls, coulter pressure regulation and automated dosage control. Options include GPS, automatic section control and an NIR sensor system.
