A deep drop fertilizer tanker is a tank trailer made typically from a stainless steel composition (304 SS / 316L SS). These tankers are typically non-code tank trailers that are not rated for pressure and designed to haul heavier fertilizers such as liquid feed, molasses, Urea, and other non-code products used in the agricultural field.
Most commonly in the United States, deep drop fertilizer tankers range from 5000 to 6000 gallons in capacity. They typically offer a center discharge, but sometimes you can find one which is using a belly line in the rear. These trailers require a pump to push the product out which is either mounted to the trailer or on the tractor.
