A completely new low budget low specification range of slurry tankers has just been launched by SlurryKat to cater for a growing demand in that specific machinery sector.
The new range of Pantera tankers demonstrates a more basic lower specification design and options list compared to the original premium range of SlurryKat flagship tankers also made by the company for larger farmers and contractors.
There are a number of models available in the range from 1600 to 2750 gallons on a single axle and 2500 to 3500 gallon models on tandem axles.
The Pantera range is manufactured with steel already shot blasted and finished in high gloss two pack black paint as standard to ensure a long durable protection against corrosion.
Tankers can be sprayed in SlurryKat’s flagship red and green colours if the customer desires.
SlurryKat’s unique internal anti-surge baffle system and full internal welding is also maintained in the range.
Sales orders and positive feedback on pre-production Pantera models have been very strong from customers and the range is now in full production at the company’s manufacturing facility in Waringstown in County Armagh.
SlurryKat’s chief executive officer, Garth Cairns, said: “The vision behind the new Pantera range is to offer the market a more affordable tanker with less specification while still maintaining vital reputable build quality and reliability, something SlurryKat is strongly recognised for in the agri industry.
“The same high quality components and high tensile steels, Jurop vacuum pumps, axles, wheels and valves that we use to manufacture our premium range of SlurryKat tankers are also fitted to the Pantera range.
“Pantera tankers are built on the same production line by the same experienced SlurryKat engineers so no cuts have been made to save costs using inferior cheap components.”
SlurryKat is now seen as the main trend setter when it comes to manufacturing slurry handling equipment.
Traditionally recognised for supplying umbilical systems, the company first entered into the very competitive slurry tanker market almost eight years ago and has went from strength to strength in that time.
SlurryKat incorporated new innovative designs that originally focused on tankers with spreading technology equipment on the rear such as dribble bars and trailing shoe injectors to coincide with the EU nitrates directive in 2007.
SlurryKat has won numerous awards for its tanker designs and attachments and is seen as one of the market leaders for slurry tankers.
Prices start from £7995 for the Pantera 1600 gallon model.
