Contractor Spec LGP Slurry Tanker

The MAJOR LGP Tanker is a robust vehicle designed and manufactured with the larger producer or contractor in mind. The MAJOR LGP Tanker is unique in design, in that the barrel is supported by a separate chassis.

The position of the axle relative to the machine length means that a perfect balance is achieved with 80% of the weight running on the tanker’s axle and the remainder being carried on the tractor drawbar.

The tanker is baffled to prevent ‘wave’ motions during transport. It is mounted on wide support wear plates to spread the weight reducing tension and stress. 6” filler points are placed on the sides and rear of the tank. These tankers are painted the traditional MAJOR green finish as standard. All MAJOR LGP and Alpine tankers are fitted with hydraulic brakes and side and rears lights as standard and comply fully with regulations for agricultural vehicles.

Testimonials


We took delivery of our Major 2300-gallon Alpine Tanker and trailing shoe in December 2012 and in just a few months I could see the benefits of this method of placing slurry. The accuracy of spread is excellent. The grass receives the nutrient right where it needs it and does not coat the leaves, preventing grass growth. We can do the 2nd and 3rd cut of silage with no problems of grass contamination. We really like the dropped axle on the Alpine tanker as it allows us to access areas of our farm that we wouldn’t dream of bringing any other slurry tanker.

Gary Orwells, Farmer, Powys, Wales

Our Major Alpine 2670-gallon tanker is fitted with wide, low-ground pressure tyres and Major’s own trailing shoe system, which was quite a step away from our old tanker with a splash plate. We like the trailing shoe system as the grass receives the nutrient right where it needs it and does not coat the leaves, preventing grass growth. We like the stepped axle and its solid construction which is essential for surviving long days on steep fields
