JAMES WAY® Air Pressure
Does hard work far you
Whatever ybur herd size—so,lso or more—let air
pressure movermanure to storage in minutes. It’s
simple: your v gutter cleaner, alley scraper or tractor
scraper, delivers manure “as Is” to a steel holding
tank. A twist of yodfwrlst then seals the tank;

gears, reducers or delays.
