I am after something exactly like the photo with the handle and 3 lever cam lock, would make handling 3 inch pipes full of water or fert easier, plenty on USA websites can't seem to find any over here.

Why not order direct from the US? I’ve ordered spray nozzles etc using my card over the phone. Arrived within 48 hours. Sometimes cheaper than can be had here. Sometimes they need a touch with a hacksaw to cut a bit off that stops them fitting in my caps.
I used Fairbank Equipment Inc.

Saw "Lawson" farms on U tube have a few of those fittings last year and like you thought they would be good . He buys his stuff from "Ag Chem Solutions" but no idea if they would export parts to UK ?
Be intrested how you get on .
How about @SimpersTradeCounter for a source?

Have spoken to our local spray outfit who spoke to Banjo uk and apparently none been sold in UK at the moment and would take 4 weeks to get here, plus price is quite high.
My arthritic hand might appreciate it I think though
I looked at Agchem solutions as you can pay by card and delivery was about $80 from USA

The above picture is what I have but the handle would be a benefit as on 3 inch pipe full of liquid , quite often as you undo from sprayer it twists and combination of weight and slippery plastic means you tend to drop it to avoid getting wet which is not great for the fittings or your wrists if you try and hold on.
 
I'm tempted to order one for my self.
The handle itself is available from that company to bolt onto the bolted 2” or 3” valve/coupler you may already have.
One or ten requests for the bolt on handle from UK dealers will likely get it available in UK, or a little ingenuity could produce one in 15 mins in the farm workshop.

Just get a tank fitting and screw the banjo coupling onto where it screws onto tank. I made up something similar the other day.

View attachment 1029271
We have similar set up at moment filling a Horsch 5lt , the 3 inch arag valve is quite a lump and how ever we position it it doesn't seal 100%, needs a 3 cam lever camlock I think, which I see is available but only in a NPT fitting not BSP.

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

court-640x360.jpg
A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
