New range of trailing shoe injectors from SlurryKat
July 15, 2020 by Manure Manager
SlurryKat, a manure-handling equipment manufacturer in Northern Ireland, has launched their new “Premium Plus” range of trailing shoe slurry injectors.
The new trailing shoe is designed for intensive use by contractors or large-scale farms and will interlink with the company’s 1,200-meter (3,937-foot) Bak Pak hose reeling system in a “piggy back” arrangement.
This unit reduces weight by 28 percent from previous models. “This was achieved by incorporating novel design features and using high-grade steel, which is 68 percent stronger than standard steel of the same thickness,” said Garth Cairns, SlurryKat CEO and principle design engineer.
“We have integrated many laser-cut, press-formed components into the machine, which further allow weight reduction without compromising on strength.”
The new range is available in 7.5, 10 and 12-meter (24.6, 32.8 and 39.4-foot) working widths. Both the 10 and 12-metre models feature an incorporated land wheel so the shoes follow field contours.
Folding and unfolding is performed by a sequence system with the outer booms in the 10 and 12-meter models, folding back underneath in a gullwing type arrangement.
The entire beam of the unit oscillates and swings upwards, meaning the shoes can be flipped up for headland turns without lifting the entire machine.
