Stainless Steel ISO Tanks – Ideal For GlenFarrow / Farm 2000 / Dragon Biomass Accumulator Tanks
With the increase in popularity of Biomass boiler installations on farms and industrial premises over the last couple of years, our stainless steel ISO tanks have become very popular for the storage of hot water as part of a biomass boiler installation.  Standard units range from 20,000 to 24,000 litres, as well as larger tanks available up to 30,000 litres, these are insulated with 100mm of insulation and due to their design easily adapt to become hot water storage tanks.  At a fraction of the cost to those tanks offered by the biomass plant installers we have supplied a huge number around the UK and Ireland. We have sold several in the last few weeks alone for connecting to a Glen Farrow 295kw boiler to act as a store of hot water.

Insulated and jacketed with aluminium or GRP 

1 x 500mm Diameter Lid on Top

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.
