Alpine Slurry Tankers

The Alpine tanker design is based on the contractor LGP specification, but with a dropped axle to give a low centre of gravity.  This results in less ground pressure than standard axle tankers and minimal ground damage even in wet conditions.

There are three sizes available: 2150, 2300 and 2670 Gallons.  As with all MAJOR tankers, the inside is baffled to prevent wave motions and improve operator safety.

  • Industrial specification axle
  • Hydraulic braking
  • Removable footing
  • Vessel fully reinforced inside to compensate for wheel arches
  • Primary and secondary traps to protect pump
  • Rubber buffer suspension drawbar
  • Swivel hitch and foldable PTO stand
  • Full road lighting kit
  • Painted finish as standard. A galvinished finish is available as an optional extra.

  • 6mm drum for increased strength
  • Full length heavy duty chassis independent of the tanker – to ensure even transfer of the load
  • In addition to internal supports, there are extra supports running directly between the wheels hubs to increase strength on the stepped axle and prevent flexing
  • Unique industrial specification stepped axle to lower the centre of gravity for greater stability. This also reduces wear on the tyres by up to 25%.
  • The tanker is fully baffled to prevent wave motions for smoother and safer towing.
  • Primary and secondary trap to protect the pump from getting damaged
  • Rubber buffer system on the drawbar to prevent cracking and extend the life of the tanker
  • LED lights option available
  • Swivel hitch to give less wear on the hitch and hitch eye.
  • Battioni pumps are used on all tankers. These are a worldwide recognised quality pump with parts readily available.

“We’ve had a number of different makes of tanker before we found the Major tanker and it has been excellent. Because it has a special rubber buffer suspension on the drawbar, it’s more comfortable for the operator.”
