Trash Basket Filters Liquid Manure
“Anything bigger than an inch is trapped in the basket,” says John Langeraap, Ironwood 53. “So much trash goes into manure pits, from medicine bottles to bones. The Trash Basket keeps it out of the tank.”
The Trash Basket is easy to empty. A hydraulic cylinder dumps the basket for easy cleanup on the ground.
“We’ve refined the Trash Basket and made a second model for Houle that catches overflow and vents tanks,” says Langeraap. “Venting allows the 9,500-gal. tanks to carry an extra 300 to 400 gal. of manure. We worked with a local farmer who came up with the idea.”
Trash Baskets are powder-coated, with the standard model available in Houle green or Nuhn Red. They can also be ordered in other colors. Trash Baskets with overflow reservoirs are available in black.
The suggested retail price for the standard Trash Basket is $2,300 plus installation. “Our dealers handle installation, including hydraulic plumbing from the tractor to the cylinder on the Trash Basket,” says Langeraap.
