The Reeve float­ing pon­toon is truly multi-pur­pose

Farm World News - - Farm World 2016 -

The Reeve Float­ing Pon­toon pro­vides the link be­tween col­lect­ing an­i­mal ef­flu­ent from your dairy or pig­gery (or even an abat­toir) and ap­ply­ing this free and valu­able fer­tiliser onto farm pas­ture.

The heavy duty moulded polyethy­lene pon­toon, com­plete with a Reeve Ver­ti­cal Can­tilever Pump, floats in your pond or la­goon and since it is al­ways primed is ready at the flick of a switch to re­cy­cle waste wa­ter or to de-sludge a pond and ef­fi­ciently pump away ef­flu­ent.

The 2.5 me­tre long x 1.5 me­tre wide pon­toon comes com­plete with a fully hot dipped gal­vanised steel frame de­signed for mount­ing the Reeve ef­flu­ent pump, al­though other pumps weigh­ing up to about 230 kg can also eas­ily be fit­ted.

The pon­toon is de­signed to be teth­ered by up to four lines to al­low sim­ple po­si­tion­ing any­where on a pond sur­face.

When used for pump­ing wa­ter or ef­flu­ent onto pas­ture the Reeve Trav­el­ling Ir­ri­ga­tor or the Ma­nu­rain Big Gun Sprin­kler com­pletes this prof­itable and highly ef­fi­cient re­cy­cling sys­tem.

The in­her­ent sta­bil­ity of the Reeve pon­toon al­lows for rou­tine pump in­spec­tion, lu­bri­ca­tion and main­te­nance to be per­formed with­out the need to lift ei­ther the pon­toon or the pump out of the dam or la­goon.

Apart from be­ing ideal as a float­ing plat­form for pump­ing out ef­flu­ent ponds or la­goons, a Reeve pon­toon can act as a handy land­ing plat­form or a sta­ble mount­ing ar­range­ment for any num­ber of aquatic re­quire­ments and if decked can be an ideal swim­ming plat­form.

Six solid mount­ing lugs moulded into the pon­toon al­low for 5/8” mount­ing bolts to se­curely at­tach any in­di­vid­u­ally built mount­ing frame or plat­form, pro­vid­ing max­i­mum flex­i­bil­ity of use for many agri­cul­tural or in­dus­trial pump­ing and mine tail­ings ap­pli­ca­tions.

Reeve Ef­flu­ent Pumps, Pon­toons and Trav­el­ling Ir­ri­ga­tors are proudly 100 per cent Aus­tralian owned and man­u­fac­tured. Ev­ery prod­uct is qual­ity en­gi­neered and been farm tested over many decades.
