The new Redball Shuttle liquid mini-bulk handling system simplifies handling of bulk crop-protection products by harnessing gravity to eliminate breakdown-prone pumps and imprecise electric meters.

The result is a simple, no-hassle shuttle system that improves reliability and accuracy of handling and mixing of bulk crop-protection products.

The streamlined plastic Redball Shuttle includes a 250-gallon holding tank plumbed to a 10-gallon measuring vessel below, which accurately measures chemicals using a sight gauge. It has 2-inch valves and fittings for quicker fill times compared to traditional mini-bulks.

“The Redball Shuttle does away with costly and unreliable pumps, meters and electrical components,” says Steve Claussen, president of Redball, LLC.

“Our system relies on gravity, which doesn't break down.”

The Redball Shuttle is made of durable linear low-density polyethylene plastic. It is 6 feet tall, has a 4-foot by 5-foot footprint and weighs 335 pounds when empty. The 250-gallon white holding tank at the top is nestled into a red protective plastic base. It is 100 percent drainable for easy cleanout.

Tie-down lugs are positioned at all four corners and it is forklift accessible from all four sides to simplify placement on nurse trailers. D.O.T. approval is pending.

The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the Redball Shuttle is $850.
