-three axle tanker-
Maximum load limits upheld by state and federal agencies prescribe that combined tanker and tractor weight cannot exceed 80,000 lbs. Furthermore, Class B loads are typically restricted to 2/3 the total weight of Class A limits. These regulations establish a new set of guidelines for tanker production and operation:
- weight is a factor on blacktop roads.
- tractor size either controls the load or merely steers it.
- terrain and soil types may dictate tank size.
- in any market, especially today's market, cost is a factor and tires become a major portion of a tanker price.
At N-TECH, we have designed our new tankers to address all these issues, a new product line of 4500 or 5500 gallon sizes to fit your operation in terms of soils, terrain, and tractor size. Our tankers are also engineered with a steerable axle or axles, with a spread axle design. The rear, walking beam is equipped with 4-wheel semi-trailer brakes.

Now in the 3rd year of production, the ca-Z-bo remains available with several improvements, including better calf ergonomics and increased mobility. As a smaller-scale manufacturer, NTH, Inc. is committed to providing a product that reflects the needs of every customer. The following improvements reflect the company's listenership.
A paramount element of any calf housing system is the mechanism and/or accessibility for calf feeding. As each calf raiser has their own "tried-and-true" methods for feeding calves, it has been necessary to reach these demands in the development of the ca-Z-bo. The result of these developments are headgate-mounted bottle and bucket holder systems that ensure isolated calf feeding and secured feeding containers. The bucket holder has received an easily-removable calf-proof latch that eliminates the possibility of spilled feed.
In addition to the telehandler-accessible lifting loop, a second option has been developed for farms without telehandlers or reach. A "walking beam" with a hydraulic lifting post has been created, and may be attached to a skid steer, tractor, or truck. Once attached, the beam is steered into the ca-Z-bo and attached to the bottom of the chimney assembly. Lift the ca-Z-bo with the hydraulic post and move the structure on to fresh ground!
-mx-8 dump trailer-
The MX-8 is a heavily-built dump trailer which can dump its load on top of a 5 foot high windrow. Ideal for hauling and dumping manure, compost, or any bulk material, the unit is carried by tandem 10:00 x 20 tires or larger. The box, 80" x 12 ft, will also haul a skid steer. It has a heavy muck type tailgate which can be used as a loading ramp, according to the manufacturer. It is designed to dump up to 80 ton (16,000 lbs) with 2000 psi.
