Increased Weight Limits For Agricultural Tractors and Trailers

Increased Weight Limits For Agricultural Tractors and Trailers

Commercial Motor Novemeber 2014 says:

The Department for Transport (DfT) has given the go-ahead to increase the maximum combination weight for agricultural tractors and trailers from 24.9 tonnes to 31 tonnes, while simultaneously raising the speed limit for conventional tractors from 20mph to 25mph, despite opposition from hauliers.

The changes to the rules reflect improvements in tractor technology and are needed as UK farmers are currently at a commercial disadvantage compared with their European rivals, said the DfT. The changes will be introduced by March 2015, with a second round of revisions to weights and speeds, that will potentially allow heavier, faster machinery on the roads, planned before harvest 2016.

If you concerned with your weights when it comes to tractor/bowser/water loads then please give us a call and we will do our best to help you.

A large farming company from Suffolk have recently purchased several ISO tanks for the carriage and storage of digestate from factory to field for spreading on the land.  The ISO tanks mounted on skeletal trailers have proved very successful allowing the tanks to be removed and placed on the floor for static storage in the future.

Land Rover Experience Team Call On Starkey Tankers

Land Rover Experience Team Call On Starkey Tankers
The Land Rover Experience team have utilised a stainless steel tanker for carriage of water on site, to allow customers to try out the all new Range Rover that has recently been brought onto the market.  Large volumes of additional water wade pools on site have allowed customers to test out the capability of the new off road vehicle.

It was suprising after the horrendous wet winter we are experiencing, that additional water was needed! Pictured is the Land Rover tractor unit coupled to a ISO tank and trailer upon collection.  The dirty roads and wet weather hasn’t produced the best picture with a dirty truck, but will give you an idea of what we can supply.

Following the “off hire” of the tanker, the manager of the experience team kindly emailled us saying,

“I will definately keep your records on file, as you guys were simple, easy and economical to deal with…much valued this day and age”.
