SlurryKat in Northern Ireland has further stamped its mark on the slurry spreading industry with a brand new range of budget farm line dribble bars. Already firmly established as market leaders in slurry handling equipment and pioneers of the dribble bar system, SlurryKat has now launched a new affordable range designed specifically for farmers.
This new range further adds to the company’s existing ‘two-line’ market approach, consisting of premium ‘pro-line’ products, designed for contractors and larger intensive farmers, as well as a more basic ‘farm line’ budget range of equipment.
This approach has been very well received in the market over the past few years according to SlurryKat CEO Garth Cairns. He said: “We now have a product for everyone with premium and basic spec products from a shear grab to a slurry tanker.”
Having launched the range of Panterra tankers almost a year ago, Mr Cairns added: “The Panterra tankers have been an amazing success for us in the past 12 months or so and we continue to build on this success with continuous product development, helping to give our customers the best market leading farm equipment at affordable prices.”
Features of the new dribble bar range demonstrate the usual high manufacturing quality expected from SlurryKat. There are two models available in the more popular 7.5m and 9m working widths.
Other innovative features include spring loaded booms that automatically reset, if they accidentally come into contact with an obstacle such as a post during operation, therefore preventing damage.
The dribble bars use a Vogelsang macerator/distributor, the same unit as used in the other premium dribble bars lines from SlurryKat, to ensure perfect spreading distribution across the entire width.
The units are also 50 per cent lighter to eliminate any balance issues when fitted to existing tankers.
“The new dribble bars can be fitted to any tanker without the need for a rear hydraulic linkage, which saves costs and unwanted weight,” said Mr Cairns.
The new dribble bar range coincides with the recent launch of the Farm Modernisation Grant scheme in Northern Ireland where farmers can benefit from financial assistance of dribble bars fitted to their existing tanker or as a complete new tanker and dribble bar unit.
Prices start at £6750 for the 7.5m model.
