J Riley Agri, the sole importer of slurry tankers made by German manufacturer Kumm-Technik, is currently demonstrating a model from the KTR range. New to the UK, the KTR is available in capacities from 14 to 30m³.

Michael Kumm built his first tanker after being unable to find a machine suitable for his German contracting business. Now 15 years later, his company is known for the high-quality build of its tankers, and J Riley Agri is demonstrating a 20.5m³ twin-axle KTR equipped with a 15m Bomech Farmer trailing shoe applicator.

“This tanker maintains an accurate application rate even when applying lower volumes thanks to the rotary lobe pump and 8” flow meter working with a three-way valve which directs the correct volume to the boom and sends the excess back to the tank,” says Sion Williams, sales director for slurry equipment at J Riley Agri.

The specification includes a 4.0t capacity adjustable drawbar, air-suspension, and Michelin 800/60R32 tyres with central tyre inflation. The tank is divided into two chambers. In the field the rear compartment is emptied first maintaining weight transfer to the drawbar. Additionally, air can be released from the front axle suspension system for 90 seconds to transfer more weight onto the tractor.

The KTR features a double-hinged 8” (200mm) filling arm which can be adapted to fill from a tanker docking station or lagoon. The macerator and stone trap are mounted ahead of the 9,000l/min pump and application rate is controlled via the touchscreen display, although the tanker is also ISObus compatible.

In addition to the KTR tankers, J Riley also offers the KTS 30m³ articulated road tanker which is fully UK compliant.
