Falklands Buckaloo

Iveco 4x2 mounted Buckingham 2,000 gallon Vacuum Sludge Tanker

Our first ever order was for a trailer mounted vacuum sludge tanker supplied the Falkland Islands Government in 1988. Over the years since then we have provided a range of tankering equipment to the islands, including fuel and water bowsers. The latest addition is a 4500 litre demountable single compartment Buckaloo, to be strapped or bolted to an on territory 4x4 Iveco flatbed truck, enabling this vehicle to swop our bodywork with a demountable gritter in the winter. This is a larger capacity Buckaloo and features an electric start petrol engine driving a 141 cfm exhauster/compressor, with suction hoses and a spreader plate with remote operation completing the package. The photo on our front home page shows the unit being unloaded at a Southampton container depot (utilising the standard fork lift slots) ready for the 7800 mile journey to Port Stanley!!

Refurbished Cesspit Emptier for Lagos

Armstrong's Ltd new tanker

UK customer Armstrong's Ltd ordered a new tanker for their cesspool operations in the North East. Their 11 year old tanker mounted on a MAN chassis was taken in part exchange, refurbished & exported to a Nigerian contractor operating in Lagos. Work included converting the steering the Left Hand Drive after the barrel had been ultra sound tested and found to be in good order. However, a completely new subframe was required & as this is a major operation (with the barrel needing to be completely removed), the pump, cut-outs, valves & other ancillaries were all renewed before a full shot blast & repaint. Unfortunately, no photos were taken of the unit in it's original state to compare the difference, which is shame!
