Increased Weight Limits For Agricultural Tractors and Trailers

By | Starkey Tankers News | No Comments

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.

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”.

Bulk Water Storage Reduces Costs For Cheshire Farmer

Bulk Water Storage Reduces Costs For Cheshire Farmer

With the ever increasing cost of mains water, dairy farmers are looking for alternative ways to use rainwater in an attempt to reduce costs.  A customer has recently purchased two 25,000 litre tankers for the collection of rainwater from building roofs.  These two tanks utilise a simple guttering setup directly off a building filling the tanks in periods of rainfall.  The tanks are then plumbed into the dairy water supply to feed the dairy for washing down the palour and various other jobs.

The need for water cost saving was further brought to light in May 21st edition of the Farmers Guardian where Aberystwyths University IBERS teaching and research institue utilised a similar system and has predicted a £22,000 saving per year compared to drawing water from the mains supply.  This saving will in the first year alone cover the cost of setting up the system.

Water Delivery For The BBC Film Set & Subara TV Commercial

Scott from SFX emailled us describing how we have helped over the last year:

My job as a Special Effects Supervisor means I spend most of my time making the impossible possible ! During Summer 2009 we were asked to provide rain in several places places for the BBC mini-series ‘Paradox’ – this presented the usual challenge of sourcing water and utilising it in a convenient location for filming. One call to Starkey Tankers solved my problem. Soon 30,000 litres of clean, fresh water were being driven to the set. Within minutes of arriving I had a plentiful supply for my rain rig.

A similar scenario was needed in the middle of Snowdonia for a ‘Subaru’ commercial and I didn’t have much head scratching to do before I picked up the phone and called David – short notice but he provided the usual, hassle free service and the job went smoothly. Round the clock, same day, unusual requests…the Starkey’s have taken it all in their stride and become a valued part of my problem solving resources.
