The SA-R range of vacuum tankers are premium single axle recessed slurry tankers for farmers and contractors alike. The capacities of the SA-R range from 1350 to 3000 gallons (6,137 to 13,784 litres). Sizes from 1350 upwards to 2600 come standard on a stepped axle to dramatically lower the overall height of the tanker. HiSpec also use Alliance tyres as standard on these sizes. Alliance tyres are seen as a premium quality radial tyre for heavy-duty field and hauling jobs.
The SA-R tanker range is designed to meets the needs of every farmer and most contractors. Additional features include a swivel hitch, complete with a sprung drawbar for maximum operator comfort. The barrel of the SA-R tankers is recessed to include large radial tyres which provide low rolling resistance, and a greater footprint to reduce soil damage. All of the SA-R range is manufactured using 6mm high quality British steel. Collared dished ends are inserted into the barrel, along with the addition of internal baffle plates and anti-implosion rings to give a strong finish. Unique to HiSpec is the double folded chassis that supports each SA-R tanker in four key areas underneath the barrel. This means that the entire underside of the barrel is fully supported across both the entire width and the length of the tank. This reduces stress on the barrel and helps to minimise weak points.
SA-R models from 1350 to 2600 gallons come standard on a stepped high speed commercial axle. This results in the rear of the tanker being lower to the ground than competitor’s models, leading to increased stability and safety on the road or on sloped grounds. The stepped axle is fitted with 420×180 hydraulic brakes as standard to increase stopping power. Air brakes can also be specified to further improve braking efficiency. HiSpec use Alliance wheels as standard on our SA-R range to further improve stability.
A Jurop vacuum pump is fitted as standard across the SA-R tanker range. Jurop is a high quality pump designed and manufactured in a state of the art factory in Italy. Jurop pumps are recognised as the fastest and most powerful vacuum pumps available today. Each pump is assembled according to Jurop’s methodical standards and is carefully tested and checked. PTO driven as standard, Jurop pumps provide the most efficient method of filling or emptying your slurry tank. Jurop pumps have a worldwide reputation for quality and minimal maintenance. Parts and service are available locally from your nearest HiSpec dealer, and the premium build of Jurop pumps ensures an extremely long working life. Additional pump improvement options can be viewed on our Options page.
SA-R models from 1350 to 2300 gallons are fitted standard on 750/70 R26 Alliance tyres (28.1). The unique shoulder design ensures excellent grip and high traction efficiency. The large footprint area reduces ground pressure, minimising compaction and increasing flotation. The 2600 SA-R is fitted on 800/65 R32 Alliance tyres (30.5) (181 A8). These 30.5 tyres are upgraded to 181 A8 rating for use with increased speed or with the addition of a slurry applicator on the rear of the tanker. Strong radial construction with reinforced beads and sidewalls provide long tyre life. The 3000 SA-R is fitted with a straight axle and 750/60 R30.5 Alliance tyres (181 D). Alliance tyres offer higher load/speed ratings when compared with other tyre manufacturers.

VOGELSANG ROTACUT 5000
chop while filling…..
The Vogelsang Rotacut works when placed on the suction side of a pump. The Rotacut effectively reduces floating solids in the liquid stream. Heavy solids are captured in the collection basin and eliminated entirely from the tanker. The Rotacut requires one double acting valve to operate. The Rotacut requires direct contact between the blades and the cutting screen. This is how it achieves the scissor-like cut. The blades are designed to wear over time but must wear evenly to achieve maximum lifecycle between replacements.
Auto-Reverse is how the Rotacut handles large objects by reversing the rotation of the blades until the object is cleared, reduced and passed through the screen. Auto-Reverse engages at preset intervals which keeps the blades wearing evenly. The trailing edge of the blade is sharpened as a natural effect of the cutting process. When the rotation is reversed a fresh straight edge enhances the cutting quality of the blades.

No waiting around…..keep on the move. You the operator are in complete control, all from the comfort of your cab. Our hydraulically operated autofill maximizes productivity and operator comfort whilst also reducing work time.
Available in either 6 or 8”, the autofill requires only one double acting valve for use. The autofill is side mounted as standard, with an option for centre mounted to fill from both sides.
Experience the ultimate in filling speed with a turbofill. A hydraulically driven turbofill enables higher capacities at a faster rate without overloading the pump. This will reduce the filling time as the slurry is essentially forced into the tank via the turbofill.
The turbofill is particularly suited to larger capacity tankers where the benefit of filling will be seen in shorter times. It can also help where the level of the pit has dropped and the vacuum pump is pulling slurry from greater depths.

Axles & Brakes
HiSpec use bogie type axles on tandem tankers up to 4000 gallons. The design of the bogie allows for greater movement of the axle and allows improved balance over uneven ground contours. The bogie is free to rotate around a central axis and this design is particularly suited to intensive use on uneven ground. To reduce maintenance on moving axle parts, central greasing can be specified for those hard to reach greasing points.
OPTIONS – AXLES
All HiSpec tankers are fitted
with hydraulic braking as standard. All ranges except for the smaller SA-S tankers are supplied with commercial running gear and a minimum of 420×180 brake shoes as standard. For increased braking power, air over hydraulic braking can be specified. This combination of both air and hydraulic braking allows the tanker to be used with any tractor.
OPTIONS – BRAKING
i) Air brakes ii) Electric break-away
HiSpec tanks are supremely welded to give the strongest and best built tank on the market. In keeping with this professional finish, all HiSpec tanks are shot-blasted prior to painting in a strong durable red paint to provide the perfect finish.
It is also possible to customise your tanker to your fleet of tractors with a wide range of colours available.
OPTIONS – PAINT
Alternative tank colour

All HiSpec tankers can be fitted with a rear stonetrap for the collection of stones or foreign objects within the tanker. The tanker is designed to slope towards the rear as standard. This allows stone to find their way towards the trap where they can be easily removed. This feature is extremely useful where low emission spreaders are also fitted on the tanker, as it will reduce the likelihood of stones entering the applicator
For tankers that require complete emptying through a centrifugal pump then a front stonetrap is an option to slope the tanker towards the front. The front stonetrap is situated directly behind the centrifugal pump and can be easily accessed for cleaning.
HAND-WASH & SOAP DISPENSER
Carry 20 litres of clean water and soap for hand-wash after those dirty slurry jobs before getting back into the tractor.
OPTIONS – CLEANING

5 LITRE OIL DRUM HOLDER
5 LITRE OIL DRUM HOLDER
Keep pump oil on the tanker at all times with a 5 litre drum holder. The drum holder is galvanised for long life.
The storage box is ideal for carrying items on the tanker. The storage box has no lid. It has a perforated bottom to allow water and dirt to fall through. The storage box is approximately 1m in width so larger items are easily carried.
The tool box is complete with a lockable hinged lid. The lid helps to keep the contents of the toolbox clean. The lid can also be locked for secure storage of tools. The tool box is also galvanised as standard for additional protection.
OPTIONS – STORAGE
Centrifugal pumps use a shaft driven impeller rotating inside a casing to propel liquid slurry. The speed of the impeller allows the slurry to exit the pump at a much greater velocity. These types of pumps can also be used for piping systems due to the high flow rates that can be achieved. A pump change-over allow either the vacuum or centrifugal pump to be used.
The Jurop Julia pump is a combination of two pumps:
|vacuum / centrifugal||capacity|
|Jurop Julia 84||9000 / 5000||2000 gallons & below|
|Jurop Julia 106||11000 / 5000||2300 gallons & above|
|Jurop Julia 140||14000 / 5000||optional|
HiSpec use Jurop Julia Centrifugal pumps as standard for the disposal of slurry under wet conditions. Standard with a rain-gun, it is also possible to feed a rear spreading implement or and umbilical system via the centrifugal system. A hydraulically operated rain-gun can jet slurry through 360° and up to a distance of 45m as standard. A rear stonetrap and wide angle PTO are provided as standard for additional pump protection. Centrifugal systems are ideal for slurry spreading in wet weather or over unfavorable ground conditions.

BATTIONI PAGANI GARDA EVO
A Battioni Pagani GARDA EVO system can also be fitted in lieu of Julia. An 11000 Battioni pump complete with a DODA L35 ensures that you have the perfect combination for splash-plate and umbilical work. This dual pump gives the high performance of an 11000 litre vacuum pump for fast and efficient tanker filling, combing with the benefits of a well proven DODA L35 high pressure slurry pump to allow operation of umbilical systems direct from the feed tanker.
The GARDA EVO dual pump runs with 1000rpm input speed. The compact design of the pump makes it ideal for drawbar mounting on slurry tankers, allowing the DODA pump to be run in a flooded suction capacity, helping to increase pumping efficiency.
BATTIONI GARDA EVO FEATURES:
11000 litre Battioni vacuum pump
DODA L35 PTO drive centrifugal pump
Wide angle PTO
For increased umbilical pumping distances, a DODA L35 pump can be added in combination with a hydraulic driven vacuum pump. The vacuum pump is used to fill the tanker and spread via splashplate as standard. The DODA L35 pump can be fitted with a SAFALLA arm for automatic locking to your umbilical piping.

Fill Point & Hoses
All HiSpec tanker models come standard with:
6” galvanised fill point complete x1
6” blanked fill point x3
6” x 15’ reinforced suction hose x1
6″ hose carriers x1
Additional fill points and hoses may be added as optional extras.
HiSpec uses PERROT couplings to fit the suction hose to the quick attach. The Perrot fitting along with the U-clamp is seen as the strongest fitting; however the suction hose needs to be aligned straighter towards the fill point. Bauer fittings can be specified to cope better with imperfect alignments to the fill point. All options above are also available in 8”.
Options – Fill Points
|6″ blank fill point||8″ blank fill point|
|6″ fill point complete||8″ blank fill point|
|6″ hydraulic fill point||8″ hydraulic fill point|
A single 6” x 15’ reinforced suction hose is supplied as standard with each HiSpec tanker. Hoses can also be supplied in 20’ lengths and with the addition of double end fittings for even longer pipework. The 6” pipework is most common due to its ease of use and relative low weight.
Pipework is also available in 8” diameter to increase flow rate, and to provide increased suction with thicker slurry. The 8” pipework will fill the tanker faster than a standard 6” however the additional weight and handling of the 8” pipe will need to be considered if moving from pit to pit.

For maximum protection vacuum tankers can be hot dipped in a galvanise bath to provide an anti-corrosion coating both inside and out. The hot-dip galvanization happens at a temperature of 450°C. During this process, the steel is covered with three coatings made of a mix of steel and zinc, as well as with an outer coating of pure zinc. The quality of workmanship in HiSpec slurry tanks together with the galvanisation guarantees an efficient protection.
Note: Capacities of 4000 gallons & upwards may require altered dimensions to accommodate the galvanising process.
|Ring Hitch||Swivel Ring||Bolt-on Swivel||Spoon Hitch|
SA-S tankers are fitted as standard with a fixed ring hitch. All other tanker models are fitted with a swivel ring hitch as standard. This allows independent lateral movement between the tanker and tractor and makes for a smoother ride. An optional spoon hitch provides maximum comfort by offering a tight fitting and eliminating movement sometimes associated with ring hitches. A bolt-on swivel hitch can be chosen should a contractor wish to change to a spoon hitch at a later date.
OPTIONS – HITCH
Bolt-on swivel hitch
Internal & Access Options
Each Hi-Spec tanker is fitted with a 600mm hinged galvanised rear access manhole for cleaning out. With tankers now transporting a variety of slurry of varying viscosity, cleaning out the tanker has become a more difficult problem. To combat this, Hi-Spec has numerous methods to gain easier access inside your tanker.
The addition of or relocation of an access door to the side of the tanker allows the operator to enter the barrel from the side. This is particularly useful when a low emission spreader is fitted on the tanker.
900mm REAR DOOR
A larger 900mm access door can be fitted in lieu of 600mm
to the rear of the tanker to allow easier access inside the
barrel. This 900mm door is hinged and opens the same
as the 600mm. It allows much easier access for cleaning
FULLY OPENING REAR DOOR
A fully opening rear dished end provides unrivalled
access into the tanker. The rear dished end is hinged on
large 20mm hinges and is secured using manual clamps
to the perimeter of the dish. A large rubber seal is used
between the door and the barrel to create an adequate
sealing. This rear door allows the operator to enter the
barrel safely and also allows hazardous vapours to exit
the tanker faster.
For extremely thick or slurries where settlement can occur, the HiSpec internal agitator can ensure that the slurry is kept in constant motion. The internal agitator prevents sediment build up within the tank. The internal agitator is hydraulically operated from the cab. The internal agitator is supported the length of the tanker to ensure that the full tanker is constantly stirred during transportation.

3″ Sight glasses
3″ sight glasses are fitted as standard to all HiSpec slurry tankers. For improved indication of slurry levels, a full length sight tube or porthole windows can be fitted as an optional extra. These provide a constant indicator of slurry levels and are particularly useful when a low emission spreader is fitted on the tank.
OPTIONS – LEVEL INDICATORS

9000 litre Jurop pump – standard up to 2000 gallon
11000 litre Jurop pump – standard from 2300 gallon upwards
14000 litre Jurop pump – optional extra
Vacuum tankers up to & including 2000 gallons are fitted with a Jurop 9000 litre pump as standard. 2300 gallons & above are fitted with a Jurop 11000 litre pump. Manual pump changeover is standard, along with a syphon tank for maximum pump protection. The vacuum pump creates an atmospheric pressure difference in order to fill or empty the tanker. When the vacuum is created within the tanker, the outside atmospheric pressure is responsible for pushing the slurry into the tanker. When spreading, the opposite occurs. Pressure is increased within the tank and this increase in pressure within the tank allows the slurry to be spread via splashplate or rear implement.
Options such as hydraulic changeover, exhaust can all help to improve pump performance.
Hydraulically driven pumps offer greater safety to the operator by eliminating a PTO. This allows for increased efficiency with constant spreading or filling through corners without any damage to the pump. The hydraulic driven pump is simple to use and requires one double acting spool and a ¾” non-restricted return.
Reduce noise levels during pump operation and provide a cleaner environment around your farm. Exhaust fumes are diverted through the chassis where excess oil is collected to keep your pump and yard clean.
Switch between vacuum and spreading at convenience and speed. Have your tank primed for refilling before you even reach the pit with a hydraulic change-over added to your pump.

Unloading & Topfill
Unloading Boom and Drain
The unloading boom is designed to feed an additional working tanker in the field. The boom is ideal where travel distances are increased and time savings are required. There is also the added benefit of one tanker remaining in the field at all times. This also saves slurry and mud from being carried onto the road.
The unloading boom can be rotated hydraulically through 270º from the tractor, thus making it possible to unload on both the left and right hand sides of the tanker. The boom length of 4.8m means that hedges can be easily bridged.
OPTIONS – UNLOADING BOOM
Manhole Top-fill and Ladder
A 600mm manhole can be fitted to the top of the tanker for top-filling. The manhole is opened via a hydraulic ram. The manhole opens past 90º to allow the boom to swing over the opening. The manhole top-fill comes complete with a ladder for inspection purposes.
Sliding Top-fill and Ladder
A sliding top-fill can also be fitted. The sliding top-fill has the added benefit of opening horizontally. The sliding hatch also has a larger opening for the boom to reach. For closing the hatch is sealed against a large rubber gasket. The sliding top-fill is ideal to reduce the risk of a boom coming in contact with the tanker. The sliding top-fill also comes complete with a ladder for inspection.
