Major Equipment focus on slurry spreading
Major EQUIPMENT will be back at the National Ploughing Championships with an impressive array of established machinery – and some new models too.
At this time of the year, farmers and contractors will always start thinking about slurry spreading and hedge cutting.
With this in mind, Major will have a selection of slurry tankers on their stand in sizes ranging from 2,000-gallon to 3,500-gallon models.
According to Eibhlinn Murphy of Mayo-based Major Equipment, a special area of the firm's stand at this year's National Ploughing Championships will be dedicated to showcasing how to make the correct tyre choice for farmers and contractors.
"Major tankers have unique features such as drawbar-mounted suspension and PTO stands.
"Our tankers are also baffled internally to prevent wave motions within the tanker and this makes it one of the safest tankers on the market," she said.
"There will also be a tyre display on the stand showing the options available to help reduce ground compaction and improve flotation."
