Major tankers are far superior to anything else on the market

In order to provide a highly reliable and efficient service to our customers, we researched the bulk tanker market to establish which machines would best suit a high output capability. We spoke to Major and did the deal on three 3500-gallon Major tankers on twin axles with a steerable rear-axle, hydraulic and air brakes and a high performance 13000 litre per minute vacuum pump. In the past 12 months, we’ve hauled 26,500 cu metres of liquid waste from the AD plant to a giant tanker and dribble-bar applicator that injects and spreads the liquid waste mainly onto arable stubble fields, ready for cultivation. Each Major 3500 tanker holds around sixteen cubic metres and only takes around four minutes to load so we are normally moving around twenty to twenty five loads or more a day to the field sites. Because we need to provide the best service to our customers, day-in, day-out, we’ll only use the most reliable of equipment. These Major tankers are far superior to anything else on the market and that reflects our business philosophy of doing the job right every time and on-time.
