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.

The premium SA-S and SA-R range single axle tankers offer capacities of 3600 to 9100 litres and 6100 and 13,800 litres respectively.

These machines have a unique low-profile spreading system and downward directed plate, which is said to improve control and also reduce air pollution.

The SA-S range is constructed with an A-frame drawbar that allows for tight turning circles. Its wheels are located on the outside of the barrel, making it a suitable machine for farmers who need to get on the road or carry smaller quantities.

The SA-R range also has additional features – including a sprung drawbar, with swivel hitch for maximum operator comfort and stability. Meanwhile, the recessed large diameter radial tyres provide a lower rolling resistance and a larger footprint to lessen soil damage.
