Bulk Liquid Trailers Haul Fuel, Fertilizer
New combines and tractors can suck up to 100 gallons of fuel at a fill. That means pickup-mounted fuel tanks just won't do the job any more.  
  Arnie Shirley is a farmer and also sells Friesen seed tenders and handling equipment. His own needs got him started thinking about the need for bigger bulk liquid tenders.
  "I knew I needed one, and I figured others did too," says Shirley.
  His company, Bluff Ridge, Inc., now builds and sells portable tanks. The LT500 holds 500 gal. A 1,000-gal. tender is also available. Both tanks are fabricated from 10 ga. steel with internal baffles.
  The LT500 tank is mounted on a 5,000-lb.
tandem trailer with fenders, light kit and ball hitch. It comes standard with a 12-volt, 20-gpm fuel grade pump with meter and a 15-ft., 1-in. dia. hose.
"It can be equipped with other types of pumps as well, if the tender is to be used for crop protection chemicals or liquid fertilizer," says Shirley. "It can also be ordered with a sump drain if desired."
The LT500 is priced at $4,950, while the LT1000 is priced at $8,400.
