Flexible storage tank solutions

The flexible storage tank offers a relocatable storage tank for all liquid types.

A new product from Huesker enables tipping trailers to be converted for transporting liquid manure or fermentation liquids to fields in the same way as a tanker. The Flexcover Combi can be installed onto the tailgate fittings once the original trailer tailgate is removed. The module is supplied fully assembled including the pump and storage bag. Hydraulic hoses for the pump and RotaCut need to be installed prior to the initial assembly, with

subsequent connection to the tractor/trailer hydraulics or an auxiliary pump. The Covertec flexible tank can hold virtually any type of liquid and offers both a short-term and permanent storage solutions. The containers are simply placed on the ground and require no extra lateral support. The tanks can be used for many different liquids including drinking water or rainwater, sewage sludge or digestate to liquid manure or fertiliser.

Lightweight option for slurry spreading A handmade glass reinforced plastic tank is among the features of a new slurry tanker unveiled by Storth. According to the manufacturer, the plastic tank of the Osprey offers reduced weight and improved fill capacity, making it easier to transport and spread large volumes of slurry more efficiently. The British built tanker has a weight saving of 0.5–2t compared with the equivalent steel tankers, which results in less ground compaction. The spreading options at the rear include a simple splash plate, which delivers a 15m spread, reducing the amount of time it takes to spread slurry while also delivering more of an even coverage. The tanker can also be fitted with a 4-point linkage to accommodate The Storth Osprey.

the Storth 12m dribble bar or our Storth 6.2m trailing shoe applicator. Along with its sprung suspension, the Osprey tanker is fitted with R22.5 tyres as standard which assist road travel and minimise the impact made on the land when applying slurry. Multiple filling options available on the tanker have also been designed to help a multitude of contractors, loading slurry from a variety of stores. A lobe pump is also fitted as standard to the drawbar, which can be PTO or hydraulically driven, which helps reduce the amount of time it takes to fill. ■
