Features and Benefits

Managing your above-ground tanks can be a major issue, especially when attempting to achieve a smooth consistency throughout the entire tank and reduce clumping at the bottom. 

Alleviate your problems with the ultra-maneuverable Tankmaster Mixer. The 3ptl feature means the mixer is easy to move around the tank, making for an increased mixing capacity. Target specific layers of slurry with the help of the hydraulically controlled ram, allowing the mixer to operate at different depths, achieving a consistent slurry mix. 

FarmChief offers a large range of models with different vertical and beam lengths to suit all the popular tank sizes – all models come with a 3000m3 mixing capacity from one point. 

Looking for something with a bit more oomph? Turn to the Tank Hawk Master which takes a two-prong attack; The bottom jetter nozzle agitates sediment at the bottom of the tank, whilst the topo-jetter nozzle breaks up large crusts on the surface level. Controlled remotely, the top nozzle has a 300º sideways movement, 45º vertical movement, making for comprehensive coverage of the tank. 

Enjoy a massive 18,000L output per minute mixing capacity, with an optional add-on of a 150mm discharge pipe and trailer.

Testimonials

Frank’s view

Frank and Cheryl Grigg, run 180 cows on 70 ha (55 ha effective), with an 18 ha run-off, in Taranaki on a combination of peat/swampy soils and clay rolling hills. They also have an effluent pond 100 metres long and between 30 and 60 metres wide that, not too far back, was causing them a problem.

Frank explains.

“We used to get the pond pumped out every winter, and the ground it went on was unusable. “There had to be a better way.”

Frank says Matt from FarmChief showed him a video, on his phone, at Central Districts Field Days that provided a system with the solution: A Storth pond stirrer and 6,000 litre, 8 ton tanker combination.

Where the stirrer especially fitted Frank’s needs was its ability to mix the slurry, giving a product that is smooth and uniform- making more nutrients available for pastures and removing the solids that can limit pond capacity.

And, as Frank says, it was faster. “It was amazing. What used to be 5-6 hours work was done in just 2 hours with one stirrer, and with less horse power.” He uses the effluent tanker behind the cows, and says it’s made a significant change, with paddocks put back into rotation seamlessly. “It works very well now.”

Frank said he used to rely on top-dressing to keep production up but now finds the effluent recycling does the job for him. He also appreciates the benefits of add-ons including the tanker’s ability to efficiently clean out water troughs ready for the next season. “It saves time and you’re all ready to go.”

“It’s a great system and very easy to use. And FarmChief are good people to deal with.”

Doug’s view.

Caldwell Contracting have been leaders in their field for over 20 years, covering all aspects of agriculture from silage to wood chipping to cultivation and effluent management and spreading. You can learn more at www.caldwellcontracting.co.nz Doug Caldwell says the substantial family business, which operates out of Edendale, Southland, is constantly looking for innovations in effluent management and understand the needs of the dairy farmers they work with. “The Storth Mega Mix has been good. It’s safer and faster than others. And it’s definitely better than conventional stirrers. “We use it for mixing all ponds and also loading our transport tankers.”
