Hi-Spec Engineering will be using this year’s Livestock Event to launch the new HS385 high capacity slurry pump.
The HS385 slurry pump is a completely new addition to the Hi-Spec range of paddle and vertical auger diet feeders, slurry tankers and muck spreaders, Kompactor ‘compaction/push-off’ trailers and slurry pumping equipment.
Unlike the existing lower capacity, three-point mounted HS450 pump, the new HS385 is a completely new design that is two-point lower linkage mounted and is hydraulically raised and lowered into the tank.
The HS385 pump is designed to meet the need of contractors and larger livestock farmers. Designed for use with tractors of at least 110hp, the HS385 has an output of 3800 gallons per minute (17,000 litres/minute), so is ideal for use in larger stores and tanks.
The design of the new HS385 slurry pump is based around a heavy duty support frame and incorporates a safety platform to fully cover the tank when lowered in the working position. The design is such that unlike some two-point pumps, even when raising and lowering the HS385, there is no need to remove the PTO shaft.
The HS385 is fully galvanised as standard and fitted with a quick change top fill outlet. The spout is quickly and easily adjusted and operated over a wide arc for thorough agitation and mixing.
As an option, the HS385 can also be specified with a hydraulic extension function that allows the working depth to be quickly and easily set from the tractor seat.
