Hi-Spec Engineering will be back at LAMMA in January exhibiting a range of products, including a new addition to their popular and well proven vacuum tanker range.

The new Hi-Spec TS-R tanker is available in a range of capacities from 2,000 up to 4,000 gallons. The tanker body is fully supported and is carried on a commercial tandem-axle, fitted with 710/50-R26.5 tyres with semi-recessed mudguards.

The combination of narrower width but lower rolling resistance tyres to keep soil compaction to a minimum and the semi-recessed mudguard design has the benefit that overall width and height are reduced, making the TS-R a more nimble tanker and ideal for use where operating space is restricted.

As standard, the Hi-Spec TS-R is fitted with a sprung drawbar with swivel hitch and the barrel is made from 6mm British steel and incorporates internal baffles and anti-implosion rings. Also standard is a powerful Jurop pump and the TS-R can be specified with a wide range of filling options.

Spreading options for the TS-R include the Hi-Spec Trailing Shoe applicator, which is available in working widths of 7.5, 9.0 and 10.5 metres. Alternatively there is the 7.5 metre wide Hi-Spec Dribble Bar, which folds down to just 2.55 metres for transport.

In addition, also on display will be a Hi-Spec SA-R (single axle recessed) tanker. Capacities on the 6-model SA-R models are from 1,350 gallons up to 3,000 gallons. All SA-R models are fitted with commercial brakes and the show model is on 750/60 R30.5 Alliance 181D tyres. The tanker body is built from 6mm thick British steel, is fitted with a Jurop vacuum pump and incorporates internal implosion rings. The show model will also be fitted with a Vogelsang Blackbird trailing shoe applicator.
