THE CROSS SLURRY TANKER RANGE
The Cross slurry tanker range is manufactured in capacities from 1150 gallons (5,228 litres) to 6,000 gallons (27,277 litres) to cover a wide range of farming needs. Slurry tanker can be built to your specifications giving you the benefits of the Cross flexible manufacturing process.
Cross slurry tankers are manufactured using 6mm high quality steel. All tankers are mounted on a strong internal chassis for extra strength. To provide a high level of corrosion resistance all Cross slurry tankers are given two coats of priming paint followed by two finish coats of 2 pack paint giving long lasting durability. Tanker models up to 4,000 Gallons can also be galvanised.
THE CROSS TANDEM TANKER RANGE
The Cross Tandem tanker range comes in sizes from 3000 gals to 6000 gals. This range of tankers is built on a modular system. The tank is bolted to the chassis and can be removed to fit other implements if you wish. This range of tankers comes galvanized as standard but can be painted if the buyer requests so. All tankers in this range come with a sprung drawbar and sprung axle system. The most common spec tankers are fitted with a rear steer axle.
Tyres sizes on the tandem tankers range from 550 to 710 tyres. Larger recessed tyres can be fitted on request. All tandem tankers are fitted with full spec commercial running gear (420mm x 180mm brake shoes).
With or Without Attachment
The Cross Range of Slurry Tankers can be supplied with or without a rear applicator attachment. Options include Dribble bars, Trailing Shoes and Injector Systems. All attachments on Cross tankers are Chassis Mounted. None of these attachments are mounted on the back door. A tanker which is purchased without a rear applicator can have an attachment added on easily at any stage in the future due to the Cross Chassis mount design which comes standard on all tankers. It is important to add a stone trap into the tanker from day one to allow for easy use of an applicator in the future.
The Cross Range of Slurry Tankers are fitted with various axles from Granning or Distag. Larger Recessed tankers (2500 upwards) and Tandem tankers come standard with a 10 stud Commercial Axle. This axle type has a 420 x 180mm brake shoe. Smaller tankers come standard with a heavy duty 8 stud Agricultural Axle and have the option of a commercial axle upgrade at very little cost. All Axles are fitted with hydraulic brakes as standard. There is also the option of air brakes if needed. Cross Also offer the option of a Stepped Axle upon request. This option is popular for customers on hilly ground. Cross Agricultural Engineering tankers are one of the lowest tankers on the market to begin with before a stepped axle. This is due to the axle being mounted onto the internal chassis on the tanker and not the tanker barrel itself.
Air or Hydraulics or Both
All Cross Tankers come with a few different braking options.
This option is standard across the full range of Cross Tankers.
The option is a great upgrade for a user with a higher speed tractor who does a lot of road transportation and wants smoother and more responsive braking
Air & Hydraulics
This suits the operator with a few different tractors. The tanker can then be used on air with a higher speed tractor and used on hydraulic brakes for an older tractor.
The Cross Range of Tandem non recessed Slurry Tankers are built on a modular system. This means the tank is mounted on a fully commercial, box iron chassis. When the tractor is towing the tanker it is actually towing an extra strength chassis which the tanker is mounted on, unlike other brands which attach the drawbar onto the front of the tanker barrel. The tanker is also fitted with its own chassis and the two chassis bolt together. This adds huge strength to the tanker system. When mounting an applicator on the back (trailing shoe etc.) of the tanker they are actually mounted out of the chassis. This means no pulling out of the tanker when working in the field.
This system also allows an operator to remove the tanker when not being used and add on other implements to the chassis (eg bale trailer, muck spreader etc.)

Cross Slurry Tankers can be fitted with Hydraulic Suspension as an option. This suspension allows the operator to:
Lift the axles for tight space maneuvering
Lift the Axle to put more weight on the tractor if struggling with traction
Adjust ride height
This axle system also uses a combination of hydraulic accumulators to stop tanker lean on corners. The load sensing system keeps the tanker level at all times no matter what corner the tanker is traveling around.
The hydraulic suspension system can be set to automatic and let the tanker sensors read the situation or manual over ride so the operator can set to their preferred ride settings.
The Cross Range of Slurry Tankers are fitted with Hertell Vacuum Pumps.
These pumps have a brilliant repuation for ease of service and durability. The Vacuum pumps are made from ductile steel unlike the competitors cast iron pumps.
Hydraulic Changeover is standard on All Cross Tankers. This comes standard from the Hertell factory as a standard feature. This feature allows for much faster tanker filling as the operators can let the vacuum be building before they leave the tractor cab. It is also much safer as the user does not have to walk near the PTO shaft.
Hydraulic Drive Pumps are also an option from Cross Agricultural Engineering. This allows the user to remove the need for a PTO shaft on the tanker. Combined with Cross' load sensing valve chest this feature can also be fitted on tankers with Trailing shoes and dribble bars.
Auto Fill Arm
Fill From Both Sides
All Cross Tankers can be fitted with Auto fill arms at the buyers request.
The main advantage of the Cross auto fill system is the ability to fill from either side. Cross were the first manufacturer to offer this option.
The Auto fill can be controlled 3 possible ways from the tractor
Straight piped to the tractor
The Auto fill farm is available in 6" or 8"
All Auto fill arms can also be fitted with a Turbo fill if needed. This halves the fill time.
Electric In cab control panel
Ram Mount suction mount
Built in house (no service wait time)
1 hydraulic hose controls the whole tanker
Can be used for lights, Beacons, spots also
Easy to Use - no touch screen

Load Sensing option
Can run hydraulic vacuum pump and trailing shoe/ dribble bar through the one hydraulic system
Same Quality Paint
All Cross Tankers can be painted any colour of your choice
Cross Ensure a high quality finish on their tankers no matter what the colour.
All Cross Machines are Acid treated after manufacturing to strip the metal of any impurities
Machines are then placed in a heated spray booth until the metal is hot
2 Coated of 2 pack primer are then added and left to dry under heat.
After this 2 coats of 2 pack finish coat is applied and is left in the heated spray booth with a raised temperature
The paint is left to oven bake for the best possible finish.
Inside and Outside
The best coating for 100% rust free protection is Hot Dip Galvanising. This process coats the tanker inside and outside with a zinc anti- corrosive coating.
All Galvanised tankers have 100% of the tanker coated. This includes draw bar, front trap, top trap, back door etc.
Some tanker sizes may require dimension changes to accommodate the size of Irish galvanising baths.
The only true "Trailing Shoe"
Cross Agricultural Engineering are the main importer of Bomech products for Ireland and the UK.
All other trailing shoes on the market in Ireland are what Cross refer to as "mounted shoes" . This name is given as they are solid mounted on the tanker and the operator has to adjust up and down on the move.
The Bomech is the only trailing shoe that adjusts its height automatically and can follow the contour of the ground.
The Bomech also pivots on a center pin to follow varying hill conditions.
All Bomech Trailing shoes come with Headland management. This includes auto lift and drop on the headland, auto macerator revers, auto slurry shut off and auto finish sequence.
All Bomech trailing shoes are fitted with Alrena Macerators. Alrena is part of the Bomech Group.
Where the usual optional extras are standard
Cross Agricultural Engineering manufacture the range of Dribble bar products in house.
With widths from 6.2 meters - 12 meters this dribble bar uses the most advanced technology no matter what model.
All Cross Dribble Bars come with the following features and options:
Double Folding Booms
Auto Reverse Macerator
Guilotine Feed in Valve
Auto Sequence Finish Controls
