Nurse Tanker Snorkels

Has anybody seen or got a slurry snorkel either on their field nurse tank for the umbilical or mounted on the front of the nurse tank tractor?

With a Doda pump / DCI arm / Boom and Dribble bar now pretty much standard spec of a tanker, IMO there is too much going on and too much for the guys to wreck.

Just thinking out loud really about going back to basic spec ferry tanker's and also could use artic's a lot easier, never going back to just hooking the offload pipe straight to the doda though.

Was thinking about putting the fill arm on the nurse tank itself somehow or on the front of the tractor that's connected to the nurse tank so that this arm can unload all ferry tankers and still drive the doda for the umbilical cord.

Your rig is awesome BTW.
Seen it done with a loader tractor sucking out lagoon with a pipe up the side of the tractor to frame on headstock loading into tankers so possible in reverse.

I get what you mean you want a cone on all ferry tankers so no pumps ect, then a pump to suck them out into the nurse tank on your tractor in the field so you’ll need a vacuum pump to prime a centrifugal pump or maybe a lobe type pump that doesn’t need priming to do this
