Would the above be good to mount a slurry tank on ? If so what size would it take and how reliable are the multi drive? Thanks

I wouldn’t put more than 8 tonnes total weight on the chassis cab, absolute max unless you’re on very flat ground
Ok that’s not a lot of weight. was just a thought I had if it would take a 2500 gallon tank and dribble bar I’d try it. Seen one for sale at reasonable money

Firby had one with a tank on for sale at one point, it didn't look very big.

Like Pete says it wouldn't want to be too big unless you could put a fiberglass one on like on some of the xerions. But adding a dribble bar would definitely limit tank size.

Ok I’ll give it a miss I think it wouldn’t work if I was restricted to them weighs
 
There used to be a company that ran 2 Multidrives with slurry tanks. They had quite a bit of bother with the H Frame that the rear axle hangs off cracking. I think they have since been beefed up but as others have said, you are pushing the limits weight wise.
 
The whole problem with the Multistrife H frame is that it can’t twist when the chassis wants to. The C section chassis is designed to do just that. There isn’t enough oscillation on the front axle so the chassis wants to twist at even the slightest uneven ground. The H frame prevents at least a third of the chassis from twisting and, certainly as far as my spreader was concerned, the Bredal body was mounted way too rigidly on the chassis.

All that force has to give somewhere and, luckily, it’s the H frame that cracks.

@Shovelhands took a look at my Multistrife and within one minute had that fault weighed up.

There is nothing wrong with the chassis and there’s nothing wrong with the H frame idea. The problem is they should never be put together. They fight against each other.

Whoever designed it got it wrong.

Think you’ll find Richard Firby still has the demount tanker after he split it away from the chassis cab unit if you fancy a crack at making one. Would be worth a call if only to talk you out of it and he’ll then sell you a terragator!

Would a terra gator 2104 be any good? It’s a 2004 model 4 wheel not 3 wheel. Or is trike better? Also they all seem to have 3300 gallon capacity which is a bit much for me was looking for 2500 gallons ideally
