Dairy Event 2009: Storth offers new slurry application system

Dutch firm Slootsmid builds trailing shoe booms that can be fitted to nearly all makes and model of slurry tanker.

Imported by north Lancs firm Storth, this 8.2m version has 41 sprung steel coulters which cut a slot into the soil ahead of a rubber boot which applies the slurry.

Hydraulic rams raise, lower and fold the booms which can be welded or bolted to the tanker chassis.

Fitted with a high-output macerator/distribution head, the 8.2m version costs in the region of £16,000 and is claimed to be much cheaper to run than an injector set-up.
