Danish slurry tanker specialist Samson Argo will this week launch its TG range of tankers at Agritechnica in Germany.

Positioned below the existing PD 11 series (designed for professional users), the TG machines will be available in 18 or 20 cubic metre capacities for farmers wanting simple high capacity tankers with low maintenance and extended service schedules.

Part of the design brief was to reduce tare weights, although the tankers retain anti-surge baffles and other options available in the range. 

The units can be equipped with hydraulic drawbar suspension for smoother travelling and the option of a 3.8 tonne capacity rear linkage to carry injection or dribble bar attachments.

The main filling system will be the company’s patented ejector vacuum pumping set-up, said to offer up to 6000L/minute filling capacity, achieved by only creating a vacuum in the ejector pipe system, not in the rest of the tank chamber.
