Tandem Tanker

This is the specialist tandem slurry tanker range from MAJOR. All MAJOR tankers are constructed from 6mm steel for maximum strength. These tankers sit upon high specification commercial axles. There are steering and standard axle options available, depending on your requirements.

The MAJOR Tandem 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.

As with all MAJOR tankers, the tank is baffled to prevent ‘wave’ motions during transport. It is mounted on wide support pads to spread the weight reducing tension and stress. These tankers are supplied with a galvanised finish as standard. A painted finish is available as an optional extra.

  • 6mm drum for increased strength
  • Heavy duty chassis to support the tanker
  • Wear plates to absorb shocks during road work
  • Internal supports and baffles to prevent wave motions and strengthen the tanker
  • Stepped down back door for easy cleaning and access
  • Rubber buffers to absorb shocks during road work
  • LED lights
  • Swivel hitch reduces wear on the hitch and hitch eye
  • Battioni pumps are fitted as standard. These pumps are tried and tested
  • Shearbolt PTO on the shaft to protect the pump in the event of blockages
  • Hi-speed commercial axle rated to 100km/hr for safer road use. This axle allows the operator to brake safely and securely even at high speeds.
  • Extensive choice of optional extras and tyre options
  • Bogey axle allows hi-speed travel safely and comfortably.

Testimonials


I’m milking a high-yielding herd of Holstein Friesians and followers on 200 acres. I aim at running a very efficient system here because we only have two hundred acres and I need to make sure I can maximise yield and minimise costs at every point. We spread slurry back onto the grazed and zero-grazed pastures on a daily basis throughout the year. I wanted to expand the capabilities of my slurry handling system and reduce the number of trips into the field. So an order was placed for a 3500 gallon Major tandem tanker with an autofiller arm, 10,000 litre pump and a 7m trailing shoe. Everything about this tanker reflects quality and as I manage the farm on my own, the Major makes my life a lot easier
