There typically isn’t much to get excited about when it comes to manure load stands – they are pretty straightforward. But tack on some functionality that makes pumpers’ lives easier and we can get a little more excited. Recently some of our custom pumpers have turned to the Nuhn 12” self-propelled load stand to not only cut down on the hassle of moving a load stand by hand but to speed up load time.
Here’s the skinny
The 12” stand has a 14” elbow at the top to decrease pressure and velocity. What’s that mean? You can fill at max speeds (12,000gpm to be exact) with reduced foam. Fins are also integrated within the elbow to prevent manure from spinning which reduces flares and splashing. Although you can opt for the basic wheel drive, for those who are sick of moving load stands by hand, the self-propelled option (manual, hydraulic controls) is more popular.
Other standard features
» Gas-powered engine
» 3/16” thick steel
» Hydraulic lift and castor jack
» 205/75D15 tires for increased stability
It may not be chock-full of crazy features or technology, but if speed and operator ease are something you have your eyes on, the Nuhn 12” load stand may be worth a look.
