The Timaru-based business was purchased by Gavin Ladbrook in 1993 with two 7000 litre vacuum trucks and one water blaster. Over the years the business has grown to plus vehicles including 15 vacuum trucks ranging from 5000 to 15000 litres, 9 water blasters, two CCTV units, 3 water cars and various other specialised units. "Don't leave any of those valuable nutrients in the bottom of your effluent ponds," NOW is the time to turn muck into money. It is the ideal time to get those effluent ponds cleaned out, and get the water and those nutrients onto the land while the ground is still warm. SJ Allen Ltd, of Timaru, has the ideal equipment for the job and we offers 7 days a week, 24 hour service. The company is eager to assist, and with its new stirrer will turn that crusted and grass-encased effluent pond into slurry which their vacuum trucks can then spread on to paddocks.
