Gooseneck Double Twin Shift
No other slurry tanker with a similar capacity is as soil-friendly as a KAWECO DOUBLE TWIN Shift. If paired with the efficiency of a CLAAS XERION and the agility of a gooseneck tanker you will have the perfect self-propelled machine. With a volume of 21,000 litres, KAWECO manufactures the largest single-axle tanker available on the market. Thanks to the undercarriage the soil pressure can be kept very low, despite the large volume of the tanker. KAWECO is the inventor of the DOUBLE TWIN SHIFT undercarriage which has 4 large tractor wheels in 1 single row. This gives the tanker the manoeuvrability of a single-axle slurry tanker, while it has the load capacity of a tandem axle tanker. This unique undercarriage means that injection requires a significantly lower soil pressure than a self-propelled machine. This means you can start your work sooner, and continue for longer, even in bad weather. Another major benefit is that your tractor can also be used for other work, as opposed to a self-propelled machine, which is not operational at least 6 months a year. KAWECO DOUBLE TWIN SHIFT, many wheels make light work!
The Double Twin shift undercarriage
The KAWECO Double Twin shift undercarriage has four large wheels in a single row. The wheels on the outside can be shifted outwards. This creates an even track of tanker and tractor wheels without having to go over the same track multiple times. Thanks to this unique system, the soil life suffers minimum damage, and the drainage of the soil is left intact. This results in fewer puddles in the field, no tracks, being able to start injecting sooner etc. The stable, extendible chassis profiles are equipped with synthetic strips, which makes the system very maintenance-friendly. The wheels have hydraulic suspension, which provide a well balanced distribution of the weight over the 4 wheels. On the road, the hydraulic suspension provides comfortable and stable driving properties. All wheels are Air-braked for maximum safety.
Pump and slurry piping
As in every KAWECO tanker the pump is the central part of the machine. The pump is hydraulically driven by means of the power hydraulics of the Xerion, which in turn are operated by the KAWECO computer. During filling this means that the power hydraulics are swivelled out to a maximum meaning that filling can take place at a minimum engine rpm. To increase the pump capacity, it is advised to install a maxifiller in the filling arm or front unit. This will not just increase the pump capacity, but also ensure less wear, thanks to a reduction of the negative pressure in the suction pipe. During the spreading of the slurry, the dosage is automatically adjusted to the driving speed thanks to the hydraulic adjustment of the pump speed. Thanks to 3-way valve at the back of the tanker, the slurry can circulated in the tanker when turning on the headland. This creates a faster availability of the slurry, and a better distribution during the first few meters of spreading.
To keep up the capacity of a pump, stones, feed residue and other contamination must be prevented from damaging the pump. KAWECO offers a Stonecatcher with sufficient volume to slow down the slurry flow for every pump type. This allows heavier objects to sink down to the bottom of the chamber. As an option, the Stonecatcher can be opened from the cabin, as a result of which these heavier objects can easily be removed. Feed residue will be shredded so that they cannot cause clogging. The cutting system uses a preloaded rotor with round mounted blades, that run across a hardox steel plate.
With various types of side and swivel arms and a complete Front-unit, KAWECO offers the perfect solution for every customer. Thanks to the standard 9,000 l/min pump, the filling arms always are at least 10″ in size. The standard filling arm offers the possibility to suck up slurry straight from deep manure pits. Optionally it can be fitted with a docking ball, which makes it easy to dock onto a nursetank. The TELE-arm can be hydraulically extended for 1.5 meters and it can swivel up to 170⁰. This means that docking onto a truck is made really easy. The KAWECO front unit has been especially developed for filling with a very high capacity, up to 12,000 l/min, and is installed in the front lift or is permanently installed in front of the XERION. This gives a perfect view on the slurry arm. A 10” maxi-filler and a 10” stone catcher with integrated cutter are standard equippment of the front unit. The complete suction piping is 10”.

KAWECO DOUBLE TWIN SHIFT zwanenhals options
Every KAWECO tank is standard equipped with a high-quality treatment. The inside is fitted with a two-component EPOXY resin. The outside is scoped and sprayed with two-component polyurethane lacquer. The standard colour is KAWECO white with orange.
Two RAL colours are available as an option.
This treatment is many times more durable than a zinc layer and will retain its colour even after years.
|• Required hydraulic volume: 55 l/min|
The maxi filler is recommended for thicker slurry or when the slurry has to be sucked out of a deeper cellar. The maxi filler also relieves the slurry pump, making it less vulnerable to wear and tear. In addition, the KAWECO maxi filler guarantees a faster loading process.
