SlurryKat get their claws into low budget market

A completely new low budget low specification range of slurry tankers has just been launched by SlurryKat to cater for a growing demand in that specific machinery sector.
The new range of Pantera tankers demonstrates a more basic lower specification design and options list compared to the original premium range of SlurryKat flagship tankers also made by the company for larger famers and contractors.
There are a number of models available in the range from 1600 to 2750 gallons on a single axle and 2500 to 3500 gallon models on tandem axles.
The Pantera range is manufactured with steel already shot blasted and finished in high gloss two pack black paint as standard to ensure a long durable protection against corrosion. Prices start from €11,015 for the Pantera 1600 gallon model.
Tankers can be sprayed in SlurryKat's flagship red and green colours if the customer desires. SlurryKat's unique internal anti-surge baffle system and full internal welding is also maintained in the range. Sales orders and positive feedback on pre-production
Pantera models have been very strong from customers and the range is now in full production at the company's manufacturing facility in Waringstown in Armagh.
SlurryKat's chief executive officer, Garth Cairns, said: "The vision behind the new Pantera range is to offer the market a more affordable tanker with less specification while still maintaining vital reputable build quality and reliability, something
"SlurryKat is strongly recognised for in the agri industry. The same high quality components and high tensile steels, Jurop vacuum pumps, axles, wheels and valves that we use to manufacture our premium range of SlurryKat tankers are also fitted to the Pantera range."
Traditionally recognised for supplying umbilical systems, SlurryKat first entered into the very competitive slurry tanker market almost eight years ago and has went from strength to strength in that time. The firm has won numerous awards for its tanker designs and attachments.
