Sales and service support for specialist slurry application systems for Claas Xerion tractors are now being handled by the Bauer team in the UK and Ireland.
“Bauer initially chose to leave sales and service support for the UK and Ireland in the hands of a Netherlands-based agent,” explains Adrian Tindall, Bauer sales manager. “But now my colleague Rob Jackson and I have responsibility for these products.“They are complementary to the Bauer range of high-specification trailed slurry tankers, pumps, stirrers and separators, and both dealers and end users will benefit from our direct support.”
TankersBauer has a long-established technique for producing tractor-trailed tankers in capacities up to 26,000 litres using this process, which results in a very strong but lighter weight structure finished with a high-quality, very smooth gel coat that is immune to corrosion and can be cleaned to virtually as-new condition after spreading slurry and digestate. Products acquired with SGT include steel semi-tankers towed from a chassis-mounted coupling in a configuration that transfers more of the tanker’s weight to the tractor wheels for optimum traction and stability.
There are 16,000- to 21,000-litre single-axle versions for the mid-cab Xerion Trac and JCB Fastrac 4000 Series tractors, and tandem- and triple-axle models with capacities up to 30,000-litres for the Xerion Trac.A twin-axle, 30,000-litre semi-tanker is also available for the forward control Xerion S-Trac. "These high-capacity solutions for slurry and digestate application are popular with large-scale contractors needing to handle very large volumes of material,” notes Adrian Tindall. “They can now be sourced through UK and Ireland dealers with technical advice and after-sales support directly from Bauer to the same high standard as for the trailed tankers and other equipment.”
