The commitment to provide a clean and safe working environment for our staff and local residents is paramount. The Major Dust Suppression tanker has ticked all the boxes. Its has proved invaluable as a weapon in our constant battle to maintain dust control. The machine was fully installed on site with operator instruction to comply with our HSE obligations. If dust is your problem, we would highly recommend a Major Dust Suppression Tanker for the task..

Terry Bishop, Managing Director, The Pinden Group

We are a multi-disciplined company with a portfolio of activities including, Road Haulage, Waste Management, Plant Hire, Materials supply including Ready-mixed concrete and Recycling. We approached Major to design and manufacture a Dust Suppressor Tank incorporated into a Hydrema Dump Truck which is available for hire to our customers to control dust in the working environment and comply with environmental legislation. The design team at Major kept in touch with us at every stage of the process. We’re delighted with the finished product and would have no hesitation recommending the design services of Major.

Eamon O’Loughlin, Director at Quattro UK Ltd

After my initial enquiry to Ivor Dobson at Major Equipment to build a specialist tanker he visited our site and within days came back to me with detailed CAD drawings for a 3000 gallon tanker.  On our agreement the tanker was built.  This machine has surpassed our expectations so in 2015 we placed an order for an additional unit.  The spare parts support is excellent.  Any wear and tear parts we have needed have been received promptly from Major.

David Millings, Cargo Operations Manager, Port of Tyne

Major designed and built a 2200 Gallon Dust Suppression Tank for us. We use it for cleaning access roads - the blaster bar does a great job! We also use it for dust suppression in landfill sites and in the wheel wash area. If you are looking for a custom designed tanker backed by a professional service, I would have no hesitation in recommending Major Equipment for the job.
