Charger II Fertilizer Tenders, Ray-Man
Ray-Man offers three different discharge styles. The CHII-SF (pictured) is a traditional, side-discharge tender, while the CHII-FB overhead discharge tender can rotate 270 degrees. The CHII-CB can be used to transfer fertilizer or grain and is gentle enough to handle seed. Ray-Man offers two grades of stainless steel, split compartments, full-length top catwalks, as well as manual or electric roll tarps. Charger II truck mount tenders are built from 12 to 24 feet with multiple compartments. The full-length hopper sub-frame keeps the cones at their full 40-degree angle to ensure maximum cleanout and to keep operators safely on the ground. Charger II semi-trailer tenders are available 30 feet long with five compartments; 36 feet with six compartments; or 42 feet with seven compartments. The integral trailer framework utilizes the hopper sub-frame, tubular steel “X” bracing, and the main frame rails to achieve a superior strength to weight ratio.
Nurse Unit, Precision Tank & Equipment
Precision Tank & Equipment’s nurse units can be equipped with various options, including a choice of pump drives, removable spargers, sumps, ladder and a mild steel or stainless steel tank skid. They have payload capacities of up to 4,200 gallons — with a single or multiple compartment tank — and can be mounted on either a wagon or chassis.
Hays Tender, Hays Liquid Transport
Designed to be user-friendly, the Hays Tender has hydraulic operated main doors and clean-out doors, hydraulic vibrators, front and rear ladders, and an easy-to-use tarp system.

At refurbishing time, the unit is easy to disassemble and reassemble thanks to an integrated hopper cradle and trailer assembly.
The Quickveyor, Peterson Motors Co.
The Quickveyor was invented to help progressive farming operations and coops save time and reduce spillage when transporting and offloading seed and fertilizer. Proudly built in the U.S., the Quickveyor has the fastest rate of delivery of up to 2.8 tons per minute — twice the speed of similar equipment, says Peterson Motors. The unit has a capacity of up to 27 tons, it’s corrosion resistant, and it has great ground clearance and a smooth spring ride. Affordable, customized options done in-house can include three or four internal compartments, air-ride suspension, electric roll tarp cover (with remote) and vibrators.

The hopper is manufactured with 12-gauge mild or 304 stainless steel.

Hydraulically raised and lowered, the 19-foot auger reaches a 14-foot discharge height, with a 1.75 ton-per-minute discharge rate. The main frame is made of heavy duty mild steel square tubing with mild steel “boxed” support arm and cross braces.

The Tailer, Simonsen Industries/Owen Industries
New from Simonsen and Owen Industries, the Tailer is a multi-purpose top auger tender/grain trailer. The Tailer is designed for year-round use, as a grain trailer or as a fertilizer tender during the spreading season. It features a 10 X 13 X 10 auger system, 304 stainless steel tubes, 409 stainless steel flighting, a heavy hydraulic dual circuit system and a 20-foot delivery auger with 180-degree rotation. The Tailer utilizes a new 40-foot aluminum Neville grain trailer as the foundation for the unit. The best feature of all: The patent-pending hopper slide gate design allows the auger system to remain in place and does not obstruct normal pit dumping operations when unloading grain.
M3-SA Trailer Tender, Adams Fertilizer Equipment
Adams has released the M3-SA, a 24-ton Side Auger Tender Trailer.

The Deuce 1000, Circle K’s most popular anhydrous tank trailer, accommodates two 1,000-gallon tanks. Its heavy duty frame allows mounting of tanks with leg dimensions of 99 inches to 129 inches in length.

Several new improvements for this season include a torsion axle option, a new neck design allowing better operator access to plumbing, and fender options. Circle K manufactures anhydrous tank trailers to accommodate a variety of tank sizes from double 1,000- and 1,500- gallon tanks, to a single 3,000-gallon tank.
