Slurry and muck management takes centre stage at Lamma

A range of muck and slurry machines will be exhibited at this month’s Lamma event, held on 8-9 January at the Birmingham NEC.

Tramspread will exhibit the latest remote controlled, contractor trailer pump unit with compressor, 2000m of hose capacity and 900-litre fuel tank. The Bauer SX2000 slurry pump is powered by a 170hp diesel engine and controlled via a high specification SIL Vision IV remote control.

The 140 cu ft/min compressor and divert valve are also remote controlled, with information shown via large colour display. Flow and pressure can be monitored with the addition of flowmeter and pressure gauge.

Improvements

Joskin will exhibit the new Tornado 3, with the T5513/14V machine representing the range. This 13t/14m³ capacity machine has a 5.5m long body, 150 single axle with 420×180 brake shoes and two vertical beaters. The folding process has been reviewed to bring the manure to these beaters.

Leaf suspension on the Tornado 3 is now replaced by a hydropneumatic drawbar with closed circuit to absorb shocks better and produce a more precise spread. The moving floor slats and the transmission shaft have been beefed up.

Joskin will also show machines built to its recently introduced Advantage concept – using shared assembly lines to produce identical series of machines, reducing costs and delivering a high-tech product at the price of a standard one.

Advantage machines include three tankers – the 11m³ single-axle Modulo2 and 7.5m Pendislide Basic trailing shoe; the 12m³ twin-axle Modulo2; and the 16.5m³ twin axle Volumetra, as well as a twin-axle 18t grain trailer and two grass harrows – 6m and 9.6m with seeder unit.

SlurryKat’s Duo Dribblebar machines will make their UK debut at the show. The 10m and 12m vertical folding dribblebar can be tanker-mounted or used on an umbilical system. It features a lower frame height to maximise rear visibility when operating the system on an umbilical set up.

The heavy-duty frame can accommodate the redesigned Bak Pak Reeler system that can now carry up to 1200m of 5in umbilical hose. The new models feature the Vogelsang macerator with stone trap, with a twin macerator option available on the 12m to ensure even spread on slopes.

Vredo Dodewaard has made the VT4556 series self-propelled slurry vehicles suitable for attaching 24 meter wide dribble bar/trailing shoe implements. Booms fold next to the tank, keeping transport width below 3.5m.

The 50/50 weight distribution of the self-propelled tanker and the reload docking arm mounted at the front means it is possible to mount 24m dribble bar / trailing shoe implements.

The tanker can still be driven in crab steer, meaning only one wheel in each track that helps achieve very low ground pressure. Implements can be equipped with section control, manual or in combination with a GPS steering system.

Brothers Noel and Ger Hickey from Waterford in Ireland have created a drive system for vacuum-type slurry tankers The retro-fit drive system, SafeShaft, replaces the tanker’s original mechanical drive (PTO) with a hydraulic drive system and mounting assembly.
