Problematic Conditions? No Problem! The JT Boat manure agitator has a clear cut advantage in these adverse conditions and more…

Thick Crust Conditions:

Simply direct nozzles above crust, soaking and breaking the stubborn crust up as it sinks and mixes into the slurry.

Sand Bars:

The JT Boat easily is able to move sand through pump and throw it out front nozzle, moving the sand pile across pit (to pump feeding drag lines or tanks).

Icy Conditions:

Extreme force of liquids coming out nozzles breaks up ice, while the steel floats are able to withstand the wear and tear of floating ice chunks.

Extreme Sand Conditions:

The JT Boat quickly and efficiently gets to work, providing a slurry consistency that is similar to the first hour on the job, to the last.
